This may seem rather odd, since most people wouldn't think of it as traditional breakfast food, but my favorite breakfast is a few rice cakes spread with hummus and then topped with avocado.
This isn't just a favorite breakfast, I also eat it often as a lunch or even a snack. With dozens of varieties of rice cakes and hundreds of varieties of hummus you can really mix it up a bit. It is also gluten free, just make sure to check your hummus if that is a concern.
The red/magenta hummus in this post is beet hummus from Trader Joes. For rice cakes it is nice to have a variety and sometimes I use the Koku Seaweed with a hint of wasabi. When choosing rice cakes it is best to feel the whole package to make sure it hasn't been dropped. More than once I've gotten home with a crushed package I've had to return/exchange later.
RICE CAKES WITH AVOCADO AND HUMMUS
Rice Cakes (I like Lundberg Organic)
1/2 an Avocado
Ground Black Pepper
1. Spread hummus on rice cakes. Three or four rice cakes make a nice size meal, two are better for a snack.
2. Slice half of an avocado. Place slices on top of hummus.
3. Sprinkle with fresh ground pepper and nutritional yeast.
Enjoy the crunch.
