Avocado-Feta Toast with Za’atar
I’ve mentioned this before on the blog, but when my kids go back to school, I get back what I refer to as my special lunchtime meal. Cooking for your family is obviously part of a mom’s job, yes, but it’s so nice to have the chance for one meal to be entirely yours every now and then. Lunch during the school week is that meal where I can really have whatever I’m craving or wanting and not worrying about who likes what and who will eat what. It can be a treat, really.
Avocado toast is one of my favorite lunches. It’s quick, easy, healthy and tastes absolutely delicious (if you are an avocado lover of course!). The last time I made avocado toast for lunch I decided to play around and change things up a bit. I gently added a little crumbled feta to the smashed avocado and sprinkled it liberally with my new favorite seasoning za’atar (last year I was obsessed with lemon pepper, apparently this year that obsession has evolved into za’atar). The toast was topped with slices of ripe summer tomatoes that turned this into one of my most favorite lunches ever!
Avocado-Feta Toast with Za'atar
- 2 slices sesame Ezekiel bread, toasted
- 1/2 avocado, diced
- 1 oz feta, crumbled
- a big pinch of za'atar
- sliced tomato
- coarse salt and fresh ground pepper
- In a small bowl, gently smash your avocado with a fork. Add in your crumbled feta and gently combine.
- Layer your avocado and feta mixture evenly onto each slice of toast. Sprinkle both slices with za'atar. Top with tomato slices and season with salt and pepper as desired.
Notes: Za'atar is my new favorite spice blend. You can find it here in my Amazon store if you can't find in your local gourmet or grocery stores!

This toasty lunch just jumps off the screen – how lovely!
I’m just starting to come around on avocado, and I still haven’t tried avocado toast, but it’s happening soon. Love this idea for a simple lunch, and it’s gorgeous too!
I want this right now for breakfast!!! Love the za’atar addition!! Enjoy your peaceful lunches!!
This is why I LOVE your recipes…. I would never have come up with this…. Yet it’s so simple and delicious and healthy that I can quickly treat myself to it! AND you’ve introduced me to yet another new spice I’ve never heard of…. Going to the grocery today and will hunt for it. Looks delish my Friend ~~>> Only wish we could eat these lunches together in person! Beautiful pics as always.
Mmm what a fabulous dish Aggie! Love this!
Gorgeous lunch, Aggie! Look so fresh, light, and super-healthy! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Love this!! Such a perfect lunch!
Outstanding! I love za’atar and usually have it on a Lebanese pizza at my fav Lebanese joint…
Super simple and nice and tasty!
Avocado toast sounds wonderful!
Yum! Avocado and feta cheese on this fantastic toast – wonderful!!!
I just love za’atar..and love finding new ways to use it! What a great idea!
I love making simple lunches for myself. I love these flavors, Aggie!
my special lunches are always on the weekends when i’m home from work. totally going to remember this!!
I go through phases of loving one spice or another too! I’ve never tried za’atar but I’m intrigued! I’ll pick some up if I come across it. I love the rare moments when I can really think of what I alone want to eat. Rare indeed!
I’ve heard that this toast is delicious, but I’ve never tried a combo quite like this before; I remember the first time I ate feta was on some type of toast or cracker and it was great. I’ll give the avocado a shot mixed with these things 🙂
I wish I was having this for lunch! Looks delish, Aggie!
LOVE avocado toast and with zaatar, it’s even more delicious 🙂
