Protein Rich Mint Cottage Cheese Avocado Gluten Free Bagel

Its recipe 5 of my ‘7 breakfasts for 7 days’ recipe challenge and today I am bringing you Protein Rich Mint Cottage Cheese Avocado Gluten Free Bagel for your breakfast dining pleasure. How about that for a long winded title? I think I have mentioned this before, titles are the hardest part of all this blogging stuff. Trying to cram all the information into 70 or so characters it’s tricky. It’s like a really restricted Twitter. Enough waffling about titles, let’s get on with this breakfast treat.

Part of of my breakfast challenge from Arla was to create savoury dishes as well as sweet ones. I have one of the worlds largest sweet tooths and I definitely found this more challenging. But with a few experiments I found this combinations really good. So out of experimentation the protein rich mint cottage cheese avocado gluten free bagel was born.

What makes it protein rich?

That would be the Arla protein rich cottage cheese. It has a whopping 40 grams of protein per pot! We all know protein keeps you fuller for longer so this can’t be a bad thing. This recipe uses around 1/3rd of of pot so we are looking at approximately 13 grams of protein and the 2 grams the avocado brings to the party. By all means pile on even more cottage cheese if you want even more protein.

To to make this dish even more intresting I added a little fresh mint to the cottage cheese. I’m really loving cottage cheese and mint at the moment, not convinced? Give it a try, honestly after one bite it will be love I promise you. The mint gives it a lovely fresh zing and pairs with the avocado perfectly.


Gluten Free

Like most of my dishes this one can be altered easily to suit different diets, I have used a gluten free bagel but if gluten is not a problem for you then by all means use a regular bagel. Or pile this topping on top of lightly toasted bread, the choice is yours. I just adore bagels 🙂


So hopefully you will give this one a try, even if it is a little unusual for your normal breakfast treat. Creamy avocado paired with minted cottage cheese is such a lovely fresh flavour combination.
