The Great Cottage Cheese comeback!

Cottage cheese is seeing something of a renaissance. 125g of cottage cheese contains 14 grams of protein and the fat content can help with blood sugar control, helping you to feel fuller for longer. You can add it to lasagna and scrambled eggs and I've seen more adventurous chefs incorporating it into high protein pancakes.

It's also a delicious snack on an oat cake - or straight out of the tub!

This super quick breakfast recipe only requires chopping the tomatoes and basil and will keep you going until lunch time.

Tomato Basil Cottage Cheese Bowl

Serves 1

  • 125g cherry tomatoes, chopped into quarters

  • 150g cottage cheese

  • 50g pine nuts (toast them lightly in a pan if you like the nuttier taste

  • 1tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • 1tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Add all of the ingredients into a bowl, drizzle with the balsamic and olive oil - enjoy!
