Ready in 5 minutes, this satisfying no-cook Avocado toast breakfast is packed with protein, fiber and healthy fats – perfect for busy mornings or an easy lunch.
No lie: I probably eat this once or twice a week. I love spreading it on bread with a sprinkle of sea salt and cilantro sprigs or in a simple avocado egg sandwich.
To make this a fast and easy recipe, I decided to incorporate cottage cheese which wouldn’t require turning on the stove or oven.
Additions / Substitutions:
Adding cottage cheese to avocado toast not only adds great flavor and texture but it turns a snack into a complete meal by adding protein, calcium, and 7 other vitamins and nutrients. Other options to add to avocado toast beyond tomato would be to have thin slices of red onion. That would make this taste more amazing than it already is. Bacon strips are also an option as well.
If you’re not a fan of cottage cheese spreadable cheese with chives would be a good substitute.
