I mix 1/2 cup with a can of tuna fish and use for sandwiches. Very high in protein.

I LOVE cottage cheese because it is so versatile...if you want sweet, you can make it sweet, you can eat it plain with pepper (yum), you can mix with salsa, beat into eggs, or even top your pizza with it...that's right folks...made homemade pizza and when it came out of the oven I put cottage cheese on top of a piece...i don't think I'll ever have pizza again without it!!!

I use it in place of yogurt and sour cream in any recipe. example Dips, mexican food, fruit parfiats. Just place in a food processor for the creamy texture and/or add a little honey for the sweetness.

Mix 500g pot with 2 beaten eggs and the kind of vegetable you like suitable for a quiche, onions, mushrooms, peppers.

Then add to a flan dish and pop in the oven at about 180' for 25 mins or until just turning golden on top. Great warm for a meal or cold as snacks, should make 4 decent portions or 6 snack.

Really low cal overall.

That sounds good...I'm going to try it. Does it cook up like Quiche or do you still eat it like cottage cheese with a spoon?

I mix it with Club House Tex Mex and eat it with some raw vegetables.

Mashed Cauliflower and Cottage Cheese.

Take a head of Cauliflower (break apart) and microwave with water till tender
Take half of the cooked cauliflower add into Blender.
Take a cup of cottage cheese
Add salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste.
Blend till you get a smooth consistency.

It should be very smooth and creamy. And tastes like you're cheating, but you're not.

Other variation: Add some olive oil while blending
Add cumin, salt, pepper, garlic powder, almond paste.
Cauliflower Hummus.

I didn't read thru the entire thread but the only way I will eat cottage cheese is in a smoothie....a super protein packed smoothie.

1/2 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup milk (I use 1%)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 Tbsp Jello sugar-free cheesecake pudding powder
Dash of vanilla extract
Handful of ice cubes
Packet or 2 of artificial sweetener to taste

Makes a thick smoothie that tastes like cheesecake cake batter. Search for 'cheesecake cake batter' in the database to add it to your food diary. TONS of protein, and under 200 calories.

You can literally just mix a big scoop of it into canned tuna, add salt and pepper (or hot sauce, celery, onions, tomato, lime juice, lemon juice, etc) and eat it like that for a protein-splosion.

Eat it with a fork or with a few whole grain crackers.

This sounds sooo good!!! ...but cottage cheese with lemon juice? never thought of it :P I might just try this for dinner...thank you!!!
