How to prepare this healthy French toast recipe?

I started with toast: sliced it and left it aside for a while. In the meantime, I enriched classic hummus with chopped pistachios, chives and chili powder. While hummus was in the fridge, I prepared vegetables leftovers: green bell pepper, celery, carrot slices and radishes to grab hummus once everything was served and ready to eat.

When making your own version, you may add cucumber, zucchinis, lettuce, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage leaves, chayote , fennel, kohlrabi, spring onions and so many more to serve with hummus toast ……
