A Hummus Tartine is an elegant, yet easy, weekday lunch idea. Topped with hummus, artichokes, sundried tomatoes, and feta this summer tartine recipe will transport you to the South of France.

If you ask me to define what a tartine is, I would tell you that it’s simply a fancy way of saying “toasted bread with all sorts of yumminess on top.”

If you want me to get technical, I’d go further to say that tartines:

  • Are versatile open-faced sandwiches from France that can be topped with a variety of toppings.
  • Always start with a base of lightly toasted bread, preferably a high-quality sourdough.
  • Are fixtures on French café menus and can be enjoyed for either breakfast (like this Scrambled Egg Toast with Roasted Asparagus) or lunch.

The tartine recipe I’m sharing today is based on a topping combination I enjoyed at one of our favorite cafes during our trip through France, the lovely Comptoir Poilane.

How to Make a Hummus Tartine

Starting with a toasted sourdough base, this vegetarian tartine recipe is spread with a generous amount of olive tapenade hummus before being piled high with an addictive combination of sundried tomatoes, artichokes, and feta cheese.

The Ingredients

  • Sourdough Bread. Any sturdy, artisan-style loaf you love will work beautifully in this recipe. Personally, I hauled a six-pound loaf of Polaine sourdough back from France. Necessary? No. Delicious? Yes. A little crazy? Absolutely.
  • Hummus. You can make Homemade Hummus, or make it quick and do store-bought. Personally, my go-to flavor for this hummus tartine is olive tapenade but feel free to choose your favorite flavor of store-bought or homemade hummus (I plan to try a tartine using this Edamame Hummus soon).
  • Artichoke Hearts. Give this tartine a delicious Mediterranean flavor that I just can’t get enough of.
  • Sundried Tomatoes. Add depth thanks to their intense sweet-tart flavor.
  • Feta Cheese. Adds salty, creamy tang to the tartine and balances the other flavors.

Substitution Tip!

The beauty of a hummus tartine is that you can pile on any ingredient you love or happen to have in the fridge—just switch up the hummus flavor to match. Some of my recent favorites include:

  • Deli Turkey with Capers (another Cuisine de Bar inspiration)
  • Egg with Sliced Avocado
  • Fresh Tomatoes with Goat Cheese

The Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Spread each slice of bread with hummus.
  3. Top each slice evenly with artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes, and feta.
  4. Arrange on a baking sheet and toast until bread is lightly crisp and toppings are warm. Serve immediately and ENJOY!

Cooking Variations

  • Toaster Oven. Place assembled tartines in a preheated toaster oven and toast until the bread is lightly crisp and the toppings are warm.
  • Standard Toaster. Toast the bread to your desired level of doneness. Then, while still warm, assemble as directed above with the toppings.

Storage Tips

  • To Store. Tartines are best served warm immediately upon assembly. Therefore, I do not recommend storing leftover tartines.

We might not be able to catch a flight to France tonight, but we can bring a little French café living to our lunch tables with this hummus tartine recipe. Grab your bread, your hummus, and your fixin’s, and let’s get toasty.

Frequently Asked Questions
