Using sturdy crackers instead of bread makes for a lighter tartine. Top with cottage cheese and a smattering of fruits or vegetables for a satisfying, good-for-you snack.
Spread cottage cheese onto crackers. For a sweet tartine, top with plums or figs and a drizzle of honey. For a savory tartine, top with sprouts or radishes and lemon zest; finish with salt, pepper, and oil.
