Just like last year I am collaborating with Schweizer Brot for a bread project on my blog. For this year’s post I wanted to share how one can basically create a meal out of a slice of bread and a delicious spread for a topping. Hence I came up with three incredibly tasty savoury spreads that each are packed with healthy fat and protein as all of them are based on either nuts, legumes or both.
Tartines, Crostini or just bread topped with anything that looks pretty have been all over the internet for the past years. The most hyped, or in my opinion over-hyped, version would probably be the infamous avocado toast. A slice of sourdough bread topped with avocado, may it be sliced, smashed or shaped into whatever type of fancy decorative object is for sure a delicious meal, however, it is not at all sustainable toe eat avocado on the regular. Unless you grow them in your own backyard, then go ahead and by all means, eat an avocado a day to keep the doctor away. However, if you, like myself live in the northern part of the world, the chance of you having an avocado tree standing in your backyard is pretty low, which is why I want to share three delicious toppings for your next green breakfast Tartine that don’t contain any avo.
The base to a great breakfast Tartine, however, is definitely some high-quality bread. As for all things I recommend getting bread that has been produced locally, which is why I am teaming up with Schweizer Brot, who promote Swiss made bread in Switzerland. I recently had my first go at baking sourdough bread and I used some for shooting the following three recipes.
However, if I happen to not have the time and patience to bake my own sourdough bread I like to head over to my favourite bakery in Zurich, John Baker, which conveniently have one of their shops very close to where I live. Nevertheless, I am sure, there’s a local baker, just as good, close to your house too. In case there isn’t, however, there is also always the option of buying bread at the supermarket. There is Swiss baked bread available at the supermarket, you just have to check the label to find out about it. If you want some more info on that just check out my last post I did for Schweizer Brot about a year ago.
But now let’s get to my three recipes to get a delicious green Tartine, that isn’t based on Avocado.
