Middle Eastern Tostadas with Hummus and Feta – Kalyn’s Kitchen

Table of Contents


Middle Eastern Tostadas with Hummus and Feta are made with my favorite low-carb tortillas, and this makes a delicious vegetarian lunch. And if you use a moderate amount of hummus (or switch for a low-carb type of hummus; see below), this can be pretty low in net carbs.

My family has some hummus lovers and hummus avoiders, but personally I can’t imagine a hummus variation I wouldn’t like. And although it’s a carb splurge that I only eat occasionally for a treat these days, I sometimes buy those the packages of individual hummus from Costco, which is great for portion control.

For a recipe idea using hummus, I think these Middle Eastern Tostadas with Hummus and Feta are such a tasty combination! These are made with my favorite low-carb tortillas and one tostada is perfect for a quick lunch or snack.

Of course Tostadas are a Mexican dish and tortillas aren’t really used in middle eastern food, so of course this is obviously not an authentically middle eastern dish! But I think that name captures the spirit of this recipe, and it’s fun for a think-outside-the-box way to eat hummus.

What ingredients do you need for this recipe?

  • Mission Carb Balance Low-Carb Tortillas (affiliate link) or other low-carb tortillas
  • Olive Oil (affiliate link)
  • finely chopped lettuce
  • crumbled Feta
  • Kalamata olives (or use regular black olives if you prefer)
  • hummus
  • powdered Sumac (affiliate link) for sprinkling over the hummus, optional, but very good)

What other variations of this recipe could you make?

These tostadas rocked my world with the basic recipe above, but if you want to get exotic you could add other ingredients like diced roasted red bell peppers, Red Pepper Aioli, sliced sweet mini-peppers, chopped mint or parsley, Tzatziki sauce, sesame seeds, or even a hot Mediterranean sauce like Harissa.

Can you make this with low-carb pita bread?

This recipe would be delicious made with low-carb pita bread to replace the tortilla. And if you like the sound of that, check out my recipe for Middle Eastern Beef and Hummus Pita Rounds.

Want some options for low-carb hummus to use in this recipe?

Even if you use my favorite low-carb tortillas, the Middle Eastern Tostadas do have some carbs. If you want a version that’s even lower in carbs, replace the purchased hummus I used with Low-Carb Cauliflower Hummus, Avocado Hummus, Keto Baba Ganoush, Roasted Garlic Keto Hummus, or Keto Hummus.

How to make Middle Eastern Tostadas with Hummus and Feta:

(Scroll down for complete recipe with nutritional information.)

  1. We used my favorite low-carb tortillas, and if you look carefully you can see that the whole wheat ones only have 3 net carbs. 
  2. We used about 1/4 cup hummus for each tostada. One small container of Kirkland Organic Hummus is 2.5 oz and has 8 net carbs; we didn’t use quite that much but you can use the whole little tub of hummus if you prefer.
  3. The next photo shows Sumac (affiliate link), crumbled Feta, Kalamata Olives, and the hummus, ready to go!
  4. Preheat the oven to 400F/200C and spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
  5. When the oven is hot, put the flour tortillas on the baking sheet and put in the oven.
  6. Toast tortillas, turning them over every minute or so, until they’re firm and lightly toasted. This took about 5 minutes for us, but watch carefully because they can get too brown rather quickly.
  7. Then spread each tortilla with about 1/4 cup hummus, using a rubber scraper to get it in a thin layer.
  8. Drizzle on a little bit of olive oil and sprinkle with Sumac (affiliate link) if you have some.
  9. We cut the lettuce into thin strips and crisped it in the salad spinner.
  10. Then sprinkle each tostada with about 1/4 cup very finely chopped lettuce.
  11. Sprinkle on Feta cheese and a few chopped Kalamata olives, and you have the perfect lunch.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
If you use low-carb tortillas and a moderate amount of hummus, this is low in net carbs, but maybe too high in carbs for really strict low-carb diet plans. (See the options above the recipe if you want to make low-carb hummus to use in this recipe.) If you’re making these tostadas as a lunch or light dinner for the original South Beach Diet, it’s important to use whole wheat flour tortillas.
