Avocado Toast with Cottage Cheese and Tomatoes is the perfect quick and easy no-cook meal – ideal for breakfast, lunch or a snack.
When the United Dairy Industry of Michigan asked me to create 3 no-cook breakfast recipes to share at the Mitten Moms conference earlier this month I wanted to include at least one savory option.
Of course, I had to create a smoothie (I decided to whip up this Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Smoothie) and you already know about those creamy and delicious Overnight Oats with Fresh Fruit and Honey but what could I share for those with a savory tooth without the ability to cook an egg or fry a slice of bacon?
Avocado toast to the rescue! No lie: I probably eat avocado toast once or twice a week. I love spreading it on toast 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. Cottage cheese 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.
The bottom line? These toasts will leave you satisfied and won’t have you searching your purse for a Twix bar an hour later.
No fork required.
- 8 slices hearty whole grain bread
- 2 cups cottage cheese low fat
- 1 ripe California avocado sliced
- 1 tomato sliced
- salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste
Lay bread slices out on a large cutting board and top each one with ¼ cup of cottage cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Top cottage cheese with avocado and tomato slices then season with another pinch of salt and pepper.
Cut bread slices in half and serve.
