What can I say? When I originally posted this tasty little lunch, I hadn't had cottage cheese in a long time. In fact... I couldn't even remember when the last time was that I had it! These days though? It's a pretty regular fridge staple for me. And it all started right here with this quick and easy recipe!
Cottage cheese had my mind ever since my mom mentioned it a few weeks before when she was trying to think of a way to make the Skinny PB&J Parfait even lighter. We didn't get very far with the notion since... I'm not a huge fan of sweetness with my cottage cheese for whatever reason. I'm still not onboard with that.
To be honest, I hadn't had cottage cheese in too many variations other than in it's original and true form. But, with the craving also comes the need to be a little different! I wanted to turn my cottage cheese into more of a meal rather than a snack or side item. So, this is what I came up with!
I love this light little lunch. It's super simple and does a good job of filling me up to push on through the rest of my day without weighing me down.
This is a great lunch and is super fast to toss together. Seriously, five minutes or less and your done. Plus, with all the protein and healthy fats in this dish - you should stay full for quite a while.
Sometimes I like to add a drizzle of Sriracha just for fun!
