  • Preheat the oven to 250°C (conventional oven).

  • Roast in the oven for 3-5 minutes until they get a golden colour.
Avocado spread
  • Cut avocado into small cubes or mash it with a fork.
  • Mix cottage cheese and avocado until smooth.
Tomato salad
  • Cut tomatoes and chop basil roughly. Chop onion finely.
  • Mix everything in a bowl with lemon peel, olive oil, and chilli flakes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Distribute the avocado spread on the slices of bread.
  • Top with tomato salad and sprinkle with pine nuts.

Day-old bread soaks up juices and liquids very well and makes for an excellent foundation for the toppings, so opt for this if you have any leftover bread at hand.


Mixing the tomato salad as close to assembling as possible makes sure that it has the maximum freshness and vibrancy when served.

Topped with fresh tomato salad and pine nuts

Top the creamy and crunchy bread base with a fresh tomato salad and pine nuts for a kick of colour and flavour. The tomato salad is bursting with freshness from the mix of herbs and vegetables. Basil and lemon zest provide a refreshing touch that mixes well with the subtle sweetness of the tomatoes. Shallots give the tomato salad a delicate onion-like aroma, while pine nuts give the dish a delightful bite as a final flourish.

Get creative with the recipe

Feel free to get creative with the bruschetta and add your own touch. A popular addition is also a simple addition. With just a drizzle of balsamic glaze over the finished bruschetta, you give the dish a sweet and tangy flavour that fits perfectly with the avocado spread and tomato salad.

Sourdough bread provides a good flavour, but you can also use other types of bread. While ciabatta and baguette are popular choices, whole-grain bread will also serve the purpose wonderfully—the types of bread range from light and airy to chewy with nutty and earthy notes.

Experimenting with different herbs is also a neat way to modify the avocado bruschetta to your preferences. Instead of basil, you can easily use parsley, cilantro, or mint. Each herb brings its own flavours and aromas, from earthy and citrusy to bright and aromatic.
