Hummus flatbread with sun-dried tomatoes, feta, spinach, pine nuts, and pesto sauce makes for an easy-to-prepare appetizer or snack.

Ever turn an appetizer into dinner?
Guilty as charged. Regularly. 😉
Completely informal yet healthful, and satisfying.. plus fiercely customizable, this flatbread is everything to me. The way I see it, this is the perfect go-to for an afternoon snack or pre-dinner appetizer to tide your friends and family over before you make dinner.
Or, actual dinner. What happens between you and the hummus stays between you and the hummus.
This hummus flatbread happens to be the ultimate reflection of my appetizer philosophy…a little messy, a lot of flavor, strong potential to become actual dinner.
I smeared Roasted Pine Nut Hummus on flatbread, then topped it will all sorts of goodies, like sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts, sauteed spinach, feta cheese, and pesto sauce. You can enjoy it hot or cold!
The only thing that could make this flatbread better is dipping the thing in more hummus. I’m heavily biased, but I also deeply believe Spinach & Artichoke, Tuscan Herb Garden, or Basil Pesto hummus would work like a dream in this application, too.
One of the best parts about this recipe (aside from the fact that it requires only a handful of minutes to prepare) is it’s healthful with plant-based nutrition.
Flatbread made with whole grains (you can use store-bought whole wheat or gluten-free flatbread, or even make your own), protein-packed hummus, and fiber from the veggies leads us to a healthful snack that we can use as a go-to any time of the day.
It’s a great concept for an unofficial meal to keep your hangry monster at bay before dinner.
Another major win? You can really approach this flatbread however you’d like. It doesn’t have to be a formal recipe. You can top with any fresh seasonal veggies, cheese, nuts and seeds you happen to have in your pantry. Go Greek by doing a cucumber, kalamata olive, tomato situation if you’re into themes.

Hummus Flatbread with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Spinach, and Pesto
Hummus Flatbread with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Spinach, and Pesto is a healthy appetizer or meal
Heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, add the spinach and cover. Cook until spinach is wilted, stirring occasionally, about 2 minutes.
Toast the naan/flatbread on a skillet or in the oven.
Smear the hummus liberally over the naan. Layer with sauteed spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, and pine nuts. Drizzle with pesto sauce and sprinkle with cheese. Cut into pieces and serve.
Note: You can serve this hot like a hummus pizza by preparing the recipe on a baking sheet and baking at 400 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the flatbread is crispy.
*You can use any gluten-free flatbread or your own homemade pizza crust
