Avocado Hummus Toast

May 13 is National Hummus Day—time to celebrate this savory spread!

Avocado and green peas are whirled with chickpeas for a bright, lemony hummus. Make it the night before, then spread on toast with yellow peppers, arugula, and red onions. Or turn it into a breakfast wrap for a to-go meal.
