Avocado Cottage Cheese Hearty Sandwich

Schools in our area (I bet every area) are notorious for giving days off when there is no reason. Professional days, end of marking period etc., The poor parents of course has to get to work on these days. Anyway there is telecommuting to tide over these tough spots if there is nothing earth shattering that requires your presence in the office anyway. Thank God for that or at least till it gets taken away.

This presents another problem the need to provide lunch, one has to eat holiday or not. There is not much time to slog in the kitchen, we are supposed to be working after all.

This recipe was born on just such a day. I had a tub of cottage that I had bought to make these stuffed croissants . I make sure to have avocados just because they are so versatile. Sandwiches can be made just with the avocado. Lunch time called for something more substantial.

This is more of an idea than a recipe modify to suits your needs,

Avocado Cottage Cheese Hearty Sandwich
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 5-10 minutes
  1. 6 slices of whole wheat sandwich bread (we used the multi-grain one) or use a chapathi and roll it
  2. 1 avocado seeded and diced
  3. tomato slices
  4. 1 heaped tbsp of cottage cheese for each sandwich (substitute with scrambled egg or paneer)
  5. pickled jalapeno slices
  6. Harrisa spread about a 1/4 tsp for each sandwich(use any spread you prefer, hummus or mustard works too)
  7. salt and pepper to taste and a drizzle of lemon juice
  8. butter or ghee for toasting the bread slices
  1. Spread butter on the bread slices and in a pan or toaster toast them till they acquire nice golden spots. No need to toast but toasting with butter makes them tasty obviously, you'd agree.
  2. Spread the harrissa paste on both the slices.
  3. Spread the cottage cheese and place the avocado, tomato slices and jalapeno slices on top, sprinkle salt and pepper and squeeze lemon juice.
  4. Place them on each and other and the sandwich is ready.
