Blending Cottage Cheese Is The Best Hack To Make It More Versatile
To enjoy the true versatility of cottage cheese, you should blend it before use. The cheese takes on a smooth, yogurt-like texture that's much easier to eat and cook with.
Blending it also unlocks more ways to use the cheese. You can swap it for mayo on sandwiches, dip chips in it for tang, or add a dollop or two to a grain bowl for extra protein.
It can also easily be substituted for other dairy products. Use blended cottage cheese instead of heavy cream when making creamy scrambled eggs or in smoothies instead of yogurt.
You can also enhance the blended cheese with various spices or sweeteners, such as cilantro, garlic, salt, and pepper, or vanilla extract, honey, and maple syrup.
