We know, we know: Cava Grill is not open for breakfast (with the one-time exception of our airport location in DCA).
But just because we don’t do breakfast doesn’t mean we don’t love breakfast.
Especially when there’s creamy hummus, refreshing tzatziki, and fiery harissa involved. Let’s start things off on an easy note. TOAST. We’re pairing Cava dips and spreads with a few simple add-ons. The results: WAY better than your usual toast-with-peanut-butter ritual.
1) Smoked Salmon + Tzatziki + Cracked Pepper
Smear a slice of toast with 1-2 tablespoons of Cava Tzatziki. Top with a few pieces of fresh smoked salmon and finish with fresh cracked pepper.
2) Hummus + Avocado + Fried Egg + Chili Flakes
Smear a slice of toast with 1-2 tablespoons of Cava Traditional Hummus. Top with a few slices of avocado, an over-medium fried egg, and a sprinkle of chili flakes for extra heat.
3) Maple-Cinnamon Hummus + Apples + Maple Drizzle + Cinnamon
For Maple-Cinnamon Hummus:
Whisk one container Cava Traditional hummus, 3 tablespoons maple syrup, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, and ½ lemon, juiced. Adjust syrup quantity to your taste.
To assemble, smear a slice of toast with 1-2 tablespoons of Maple-Cinnamon Hummus. Top with a few slices of apple, a light drizzle of maple syrup, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
4) Greek Yogurt + Citrus-Roasted Pears + Honey Drizzle + Chia Seeds
For citrus-roasted pear:
Preheat oven to 375°F. Stir together ¼ cup sugar, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger. Thinly slice 3-4 Bosc pears (slightly under-ripe). Add pear slices and juice of one grapefruit to a bowl. Marinate for 5-10 minutes. Arrange pears in a large baking dish. Sprinkle with the sugar mixture. Roast the pears for 15 minutes. Turn the pears over and continue roasting for 10-15 minutes longer, until tender and lightly golden.
To assemble, smear a slice of toast with 1-2 tablespoons Greek yogurt. Top with a few slices of roasted pears, a drizzle of honey, and ½ teaspoon or so of chia seeds.
Mix, match, and update to your liking. Enjoy!
