Call me a fan. A big fan. I simply love hüttenkäse. Hüttenkäse or cottage cheese is a fresh quark-based crumbly cheese. It might sound a little bit boring, but the creamy cheese has been making my life better for quite a while now!

Why is it so healthy?
Let’s zoom in on the nutritional value. Hüttenkäse contains a lot of protein and almost no fat. Also almost no sugar. That’s almost unique for a tasty cheese. For the foodies: the nutritional value per 100 grams:

Energy: 388 kJ (91 cal)
Fat: 3,9 grams (2,6 grams saturated)
Carbs: 1,6 grams (1,6 grams is sugar)
Protein: 12,3 grams
Salt: 0,73 grams

How should you eat it?

#1: On a cracker with chicken, avocado and a little bit pepper and salt, mmm!

#2: In your salad as a creamy dressing

#3: Make your pesto a little bit healthier by mixing it with hüttenkäse

#4: As a pasta sauce for your penne with broccoli, mushrooms, baked salmon, parsley and a little bit of salt and pepper

#5: As a sauce on your homemade hamburger with tomato, aragula, chive and salt and pepper

#6: On your freshly made omelet with some slices of chicken, aragula, cherry tomatoes and pepper and salt

Didn’t I already tell you that healthy food can also taste really good?
