Is cottage cheese healthy?

Cottage cheese is a low-carb cheese that’s packed with protein. One cup has 25 grams. Not to mention, it’s an excellent source of calcium. It’s so versatile and great for everything from lasagna with cottage cheese, to bowls to baking to eggs.

Ingredients

  • Cottage Cheese: I used Good Culture’s 2% cottage cheese. It’s my favorite brand, but any will work.
  • Dill: Chop a tablespoon of fresh dill.
  • Vegetables: Cherry tomatoes, yellow or orange bell pepper, mini cucumbers
  • Salt and Pepper to season the veggies
  • Olives: Chop pitted Kalamata olives.
  • Feta crumbled on top
  • Olive Oil for drizzling if desired

How to Make Greek Cottage Cheese Bowls

  1. Mix the cottage cheese and half of the dill in a small bowl.
  2. Add the veggies and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Top with olives, feta, and remaining dill, and drizzle with olive oil.

How to Meal Prep Cottage Cheese Bowls

These Greek cottage cheese bowls are perfect for a quick and easy lunch. You can cut the bell peppers, cucumber, and olives up to three days before you eat them. Store them in one container and the cottage cheese and dill in another. Wait to cut your tomatoes until right before eating them so they don’t get soggy.

Variations

  • Not a cottage cheese fan? If you don’t like the texture, puree the cottage cheese until smooth, or substitute it with Greek yogurt.
  • Tomatoes: Swap cherry with grape tomatoes, or seed and dice a vine- ripened tomato.
  • Cucumbers: Substitute an English cucumber. If you use a regular one, peel and seed it before dicing.
  • Vegetables: Add shallots, green onions, radishes, or beets.
  • Nuts: Top with pine nuts, almonds, or pistachios.
  • Seasoning: Sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning, onion powder, or garlic powder.
  • Briny Flavor: Add capers or artichoke hearts.
  • Herbs: Top with fresh parsley, basil, or mint.
  • Serving Suggestion: Dip pita bread or chips in this Greek cottage cheese bowl.
