Reasons you will love this recipe:

  • All ingredients are affordable and easily available (if it’s not summer, you can just skip the radish and use dried chive instead!)
  • It is very easy and quick to make.
  • You can make a bigger portion and enjoy it for a few days (perfect for meal prep).
  • The recipe is free from gluten, refined sugar, or oil.
  • It is made from whole food plant-based ingredients.
  • The taste ACTUALLY brings back the traditional cottage cheese and it is simply delicious!Traditionally, people enjoy it on a good piece of bread sprinkling some more chive on top. And I have to admit that it tastes best on a homemade loaf of bread which is still warm from the oven. If you don’t have one, don’t worry! Just grab your favorite bread at a local market or bakery and it will be equally as good!
