Veggie Pastrami, Hummus and Roasted Tomatoes on Toast

I don't know about you, but I'm actually not a massive snacker...(I know, so surprising eh?). However, sometimes I do just need a little mouthful, or I'm still hungry and Ijust can't stop my stomach rumbling. If, like me, you also workout a lot, or need that punch of fuel before you train, then these little toasts are so perfect. Not only are they super easy and quick to make, but they're high in protein and filled with good ingredients. The creamy hummus (and I do recommend getting a good one!!), with the succulent roasted tomatoes and the salty pastrami is so so so good. I actually quite often have two slices for a lunch, and I never regret this decision!!

Just a little bit...

If you've never tried vegetarian Pastrami then this is definitely the time!! Made by the company Squeaky Bean, they are completely plant-based, high in protein and low in saturated fat, and they are so versatile to use. They're great in sandwiches, amazing chopped up in pasta bakes and vegetable dishes, but perfect for layering and using in snacks like these toasts. They also add a great new texture too, and have a slightly smoky taste (which in this case works so well with the hummus!) I absolutely LOVE them, and it's also so comforting and reassuring to know that you're helping to save the world's rainforests by choosing this type of vegetarian meals alternative. A cruelty-free, high protein snack in under 20 minutes? Yes please!!

As a quick snack, these toasts are high in protein and ridiculously tasty: they're creamy, crispy and juicy all in one!











  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • 3 slices of (veggie) Squeaky Bean Pastrami
  • 2 tbsp hummus (I LOVE Sabra's "Extra Hummus")
  • 1 slice wholemeal bread
  • Extra-virgin Olive Oil
  • Additional: salt, pepper


  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C / Fan 180°C / 375°F / Gas Mark 6.
  2. In a small oven dish, place the cherry tomatoes and the olive oil inside and give the tomatoes a good mix until coated by the oil. Sprinkle on some salt and pepper and place in the oven to roast for 15 minutes.
  3. Place your wholemeal bread in the oven or toasted and cook until browned.
  4. Slather the hummus on top of the toasted bread and place the veggie pastrami over the hummus.
  5. Gently add the tomatoes on top, and finish with an additional sprinkling of salt and pepper if necessary.
