There are few things as delicious as a toasted slice of bread with a heart topping – plus their a quick fix for busy moms who need to whip up meals in an instant.

Try these unique and tasty toppings to finish off your toast.

(Each topping makes about 1 cup)

For topping 1 you’ll need:

1 cup just-ripe tomatoes; diced

1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

2 tbsp. fresh chives; finely chopped

For topping 2 you’ll need:

½ cup cottage cheese; plain, smooth and low fat

½ cup asparagus heads

Pinch of black pepper

For topping 3 you’ll need:

¼ cup hummus

¾ cup cottage cheese; chunky

1 tbsp. chutney

1 handful fresh coriander

*This one also works as a quick and easy pasta topping.

For topping 4 you’ll need:

1 cup mushrooms; sautéed in red wine

2 tbsp. peppadews; finely chopped

2 large handfuls of baby spinach on the side

For topping 5 you’ll need:

1 cup butternut; mashed

½ green pepper; finely chopped

1 tsp. dried origanum

*Tip: Slice the baguette into diagonal strips, toast lightly and place on a platter. Chicken strips, slices of ham or pastrami are also great when placed on the baguette slices along with these toppings.
