I love snacks that take seconds to make and are tasty and good for you too! This snack fits all of those criteria.  I’ve left quantities up to you so you  as this could be made into a snack or into more filling lunch.

Avocado, Tomato and Goats Cheese with Pumpkin Seeds on Rye & Linseed Bread Ingredients:

  • 1 or 2 slices of rye and linseed bread
  • 1/2 or 1 whole avocado, mashed
  • 1/2 or 1 whole lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 or 1 t. cumin powder
  • 1 or 2 tomatoes, sliced thinly
  • goats feta cheese, crumbled*
  • 1 or 2 T. good quality olive oil
  • green pumpkin seeds (as many as you like) (these aren’t pictured)
  • salt and pepper

How to:

Simply mix the avo, lemon juice and cumin together- spread that on the toast, add tomatoes, cheese, pumpkin seeds-  the drizzle with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.

*I used the Traditional Goats Feta from Meredith Dairy. What’s even nicer than that one is the Goats Cheese In Extra Virgin Oil. That is probably the best cheese I’ve ever eaten! Anyway I felt I had to let you all know about it!

I hope you enjoy this quick and easy snack.

I love your new designs! And this looks scrumptious. I tried to link up with you but I can’t find the linky part. Help!

Thanks so much Melodie! The linky is on this post: Wholesome Whole Foods #6- June 2nd
Is that what you mean?


Melodie July 2, 2010 at 4:36 am

For some reason the linky tools app wasn’t coming up for me. Slow connection maybe? Anyway, I just linked up through my google reader! Everything is good now!
