Easy & Quick Cottage Cheese Recipes??

Hi everyone!

I have decided it is time to bump up my carbs with some dairy. I have bought some small containers of cottage cheese. Now I don't know what to do with it!

I would like any suggestions you might have. I know I could put berries in it but I would like to wait before I add back fruit.

Thanks for any help you can give!

Daisy

Get ya some DaVinci's sugarfree Pineapple syrup (from Netrition) and just mix it with the cottage cheese - it's heavenly good stuff!

Scoop cottage cheese into bowl; salt and pepper to taste. Eat.

LOL!

The only other thing I love on cottage cheese is some canned pears, a dollop of Miracle Whip, and a little grated cheddar. This, however, is a yummy my mom used to put together for us when I was a kid. It isn't low-carb friendly.

Oh, I just love 4% cottage cheese (Friendship brand has just 6 total carbs per cup) with a handful of nuts and sliced strawberries. It's also fabulous as a thickener for shakes!

My MIL made a cottage cheese salad that is soooo good. FINELY chop cucumbers and onion and mix it in. Stip in some slivered almonds. Let it get really good and cool. Salt and pepper and eat it up!

I make lasagna with zucchini slices instead of noodles and use cottage cheese/ricotta cheese in it. Good stuff.

I also add a couple of drops of splenda and cinnamon to my cottage cheese. Good stuff.


Hmmmm..cukes and onion? That sounds really interesting and worth a shot!

my two favorites:
to a 16 oz carton of cottage cheese, add a 3 oz. package of sugar-free lime jello (or other favorite flavor) and stir well until jello is dissolved. Let set for a few hours

or:
using an immersion blender or in a jar blender--whip the cottage cheese until smooth---add some vanilla and splenda to taste and enjoy!!

oh--and another one
chop some tomato, red onion, cucumbers--mix with cottage cheese, add salt and pepper or some Greek seasoning, chopped black olives (if you like) and you have a Greek salad

The more I read and learn about nutirion the more love cottage cheese. Its definately a power punch food nutitionally, economically, flavour wise. I find it very versatile for either sweet, savoury, cooked, hot, cold foods.

I add egg to a tub, blend until smooth add flavouring and splenda and then bake in muffin tins. Voila- baked cheesecake texture. Delish..... Much lighter and less dense than regular cheesecake.



I also use it for stuffing portobello mushrooms. (add diced chives, grated cheddar, garlic, herbs/spices and grill)

I suck up the carbs too and go for the low fat cottage cheese. There isnt much difference.

Definitely try WHIPPING it !!! Put it in a blender or food processor or using a hand held blender stick.... whip it up until its creamy smooth. Add some vanilla extract and splenda. Or, add some hot chocolate mix or cocoa powder to make a yummy pudding/mousse type dessert. Top with some whipped cream! This is sooooo good!
When you add back berries its good with them too.

I have mixed blended-til-smooth cottage cheese with a packt of dry mix for Ranch dressing....tada! A healthier, lower calorie dip for veggies!

I'll have to try baking it with an egg. My grandma used to make a cheese pie that I really liked. I'm going to get that recipe and de-carb it. Thanks for the idea!

To make a good veggie dip, dump cottage cheese along with Mrs Dash, salt, pepper and garlic in a food processor and pulse until smooth
Good with raw celery, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumbers, bell peppers, etc

My favorite is a variation on a high carb dessert. I use 1/2 cottage cheese with 2 T whipped cream (sweetened or not, doesnt' matter) and mix about 1/2 t jello powder, I usually use sf lime but you can use any flavor you want. Is so good!
