Almost but not really a recipe. I just had to post it!
I made lasagna the other day and still had some cottage cheese leftover with no idea what to use it for.
Never been a really big fan of cottage cheese, even though I know it adopts other flavors very well and is low in fat and high in protein.
So… here’s what I did: I simply added some roasted bell pepper, lettuce, chives and avocado and put it on top of lightly toasted slices of French bread.
Score! It tasted great.
French bread (thick slices)
roasted red bell pepper
salt & pepper
I’m sure there are a lot of things that don’t taste better with roasted peppers, but I don’t know many of them.
Hard to imagine that for over a decade just the scent alone made me nauseous. Now I eat bell peppers like they’re going out of style.
The rest is child’s play.
Now here’s the deal.
For photography purposes I started with a bread slice and topped it with lettuce, cottage cheese, salt, peppers, avocado, chives and pepper. Had I not taken photos I would have just plunged it all—lettuce included—into a big bowl, whisked it all together and topped the bread with that.
How’s that for honesty?
I like it when tasty, healthy and pretty go hand in hand.
I desperately needed some health food but don’t let me keep you from crumbling a little bacon on top as well!
Do you like cottage cheese and if you do, what’s your favorite way to eat it?
