Sundried Tomato, Artichoke and Hummus Tartines

Sundried Tomato, Artichoke, and Hummus Tartines are an important reminder that, no matter how dire circumstances become, I can still make myself a tasty, healthy lunch in less than 10 minutes.

Sundried Tomato, Artichoke and Hummus Tartines. This is my go-to lunch. Fast, healthy, and absolutely delicious!Tartine is a fancy way of saying “toasted bread with all sorts of yumminess on top.” Tartines are a fixture on French café menus and, as I shared in my What to Eat in Paris post, became one of my favorite lunches during our month-long trip.

Of all the tartines I devoured, my absolute favorite was an artichoke, sundried tomato, and tapenade tartine at the lovely Cuisine de Bar. I enjoyed it so much, Cuisine de Bar was one of the few restaurants we repeated. Today’s hummus tartine is my at-home version of Cuisine de Bar’s recipe. They’re healthy, endlessly adaptable, and alleviating my separation anxiety from France.

Mediterranean Hummus Tartines // Well-Plated

Over the past two weeks, I’ve been eating some version of a tartine for lunch almost every day. Though the toppings vary, I always begin with two essential ingredients: really good bread and Sabra hummus.

Sundried Tomato, Artichoke and Hummus Tartines-Start with hummus and good bread, then top!Normal people visit France and carry back a nice scarf and bottle of perfume; I hauled a six-pound loaf of Polaine sourdough, which I’ve been freezing, thawing, and rationing according to my tartine needs. I realize not everyone is so crazy fortunate, and I am happy to say that any sturdy, bakery-style loaf you love will work beautifully in this recipe.

Once the bread base is established, the fun, choose-your-own-adventure aspect of the tartine making begins. I have an incurable dependency on Sabra hummus, and I love alternating between their 10 (yes, 10!) flavors to spread on my tartines. For today’s Sundried Tomato, Artichoke, and Hummus Tartines, I chose the olive tapenade to mirror the tartine I most loved in France.

Sundried Tomato, Artichoke and Hummus Tartines- My favorite easy, healthy lunchIf you’re not into olives, we can’t be friends many of Sabra’s fresh hummus flavors will be perfect in this recipe. Start with the basil pesto, roasted pine nut, or even the classic. Really any hummus variety you love is likely to be a savory choice, so follow your heart and taste buds.

With bread sliced and hummus spread, it’s time to build! For this recipe, I took a mini trip to the Mediterranean with artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes, and feta, all of which blend naturally with the olive tapenade hummus.

SO GOOD!The beauty of a tartine is that you can pile on any ingredient you love or happen to have lingering in the fridge. Some of my recent favorites include deli turkey with capers (another Cuisine de Bar inspiration), egg with avocado, and tomato with goat cheese. I switch up the hummus flavor to match, toss the assembled tartine into my toaster oven, and in five minutes, I’m dining French café-style.

Grab your bread, your hummus, and your fixin’s, and let’s get toasty.

All we need now is a glass of rosé wine to match. Who’s pouring?

Hummus Tartines

Toasted bread spread with hummus, then topped with artichokes, sundried tomatoes and feta. An easy, healthy, and filling lunch that's absolutely delicious and endlessly adaptable!

Yield: 2 tartins

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 2 large, thickly-cut slices of good bakery-style bread, preferably sourdough
  • 3 tablespoons Sabra Olive Tapenade Hummus, or your hummus flavor of choice
  • 6 canned artichoke hearts, rinsed, drained, and split in half length-wise
  • 10 sundried tomato pieces
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese


  1. With a toaster oven: Spread each slice of bread with hummus. Top each slice evenly with artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes, and feta. Place in toaster oven and toast until bread is lightly crisp and topping is warm. Enjoy immediately.
  2. With a conventional oven: Place rack in the upper third of oven and preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Assemble tartines as directed above. Set on an ungreased baking sheet, then bake until lightly crisp, about 4 minutes, keeping a close eye on them the entire time they bake to prevent scorching.
  3. With a regular toaster: Toast bread until golden and lightly crisp. Spread with hummus and top as directed above.

  12. I have just discovered your blog and Im in love! This recipe has my taste buds dancing!

  13. Olives are unfortunately not one of my favorite foods, but this tartine sounds delicious. The idea of a tapenade hummus is intriguing. I learned to make a very simple, plain hummus from a Lebanese boyfriend a lifetime ago, so the idea of all the flavorings is new to me (I haven’t eaten hummus in a long time, and it has never occurred to me to buy hummus). I like the idea that one can change out the ingredients and invent their own combinations. I’m glad that tartines are easing your re-entry into your usual world.

  18. Hi Erin, I would have brought back a Polaine too, Love how you sliced it. Great combination of flavors here.

  19. I love lunches like this! Or even dinner when the husband is out of town! I love making lazy meals when he’s not around! :)

  20. I have been known to keep an absurd amount of hummus types in my fridge, so I’m glad to know that I am not alone!! What a perfect lunch!

    Where have you been! I love, love, love your site!!!

  32. Haha, too cute that you brought back a loaf of sourdough in your suitcase :) These tartines look awesome! I can never say no when hummus and sundried tomatoes are in the same sentence. Love these!

  33. May family loves Sabra Olive Tapenade Hummus. adding the sundried tomatoes is even better!

  34. Hahaa… I love the fact that you carried that bread all the way back from France. I would’ve done the same thing (in fact, I just spent 50 euro sending food back from Europe to Australia in preparation for my arrival home. I collected too much for my suitcase!). Your topping choices are definitely worthy of the rationed bread, the combination of creamy hummus and the artichokes, tomatoes and feta sounds divine. Great that it can be assembled in a flash, too! x

  35. All of my favorites all in one bite! Love love love this fancy toast:) And that you brought this bread back from France! That’s commitment.
