Steamed broccoli & cottage cheese


New member
Decided to share a very simple recipe for a healthy meal that can be a perfect dinner when on a cut (like I am at the moment). It's quite high in protein (in my case - over 40g), low in fat and gives you a crazy amount of vitamin C.

The ingredients:
- 3/4 lb of broccoli (I used frozen)
- 1/2 lb of low-fat cottage cheese. The one I'm buying tastes good and has 12g protein, 0.5g fat and 2.5g carbs per 100g.
- 1 medium-sized tomato
- 3 large pickles
- 1/2 tbs coconut oil (you can go without it if you're really hardcore about your cut :) )
- Himalayan salt or other spices to taste - I didn't use any becase my cottage cheese and pickles were salty enough

How to prepare:
1) Steam the broccoli until they get soft but not mushy
2) Then chop them, put them in a bowl, add the coconut oil and mix
3) Chop the tomato and pickles, add them as well and mix.
4) Finally, add the cottage cheese and mix again.
5) Devour! :mrgreen:

Here's how mine turned out, but you could make it look a lot better by using a larger bowl and more broccoli and vegetables. Mine was a bit too cottage cheese-dominated, you can't even see the pickles :lol:
