Homemade Fresh Ricotta Cheese Recipe – Genius Kitchen

Great to eat on its own for low-carbers, and post weight loss surgery.  Useful in a variety of recipes.  Super easy to make at home and much more tasty and less expensive than the store bought version.

This is amazingly simple to make, using just 3 ingredients! And it only takes about 20 minutes to make!!! More delicate than storebought and only 1/2 the price. Use this fluffy cheese for lasagna, cannoli, or simple crostini(with a drizzle of eevo or topped with chopped fresh herbs). Theres even a reduced fat version! I found this in the May issue of Good Housekeeping magazine.

Instant Pot cottage cheese

I was never a fan of cottage cheese.  Until about a week ago.  I had bariatric surgery a few weeks ago, and cottage cheese is one of the first allowed actual foods coming off a multi-week liquid diet. So because of that, now I love it.

Making cottage cheese to rival any Southern grandmother’s—but in an Instant Pot.

Old-Fashioned Cabbage Rolls Recipe | Taste of Home

Some changes I made: did not add sugar.  Used my homemade tomato sauce (again with no added sugar). Thinned it and added moisture with a can of v8 and 6oz beef bone broth (use stock or broth of some kind instead of water to bump flavor and protein and nutrition).  Used light salt (reduced sodium). Used quinoa instead of rice. Used ground turkey instead of beef & pork. Doubled the onion.  To make this easier, I also layered cabbage and the meat/quinoa mix like a lasagna rather than rolling.
