Cottage cheese always has its viral moments. This time, it's in flatbread form...

Recipe: Cottage Cheese Flatbread

Makes one flatbread

Ingredients

  • 250g cottage cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • Garlic power, salt and pepper (for seasoning – although you can use whatever you like)
  • Oil

Equipment

  • Baking tray
  • Baking paper
  • Spoon
  • Spatula

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 220°C (or 200°C if it’s a fan oven).
  2. Line your baking tray with baking paper, and grease with oil (spray oil works best, or just spread normal oil or margarine around on the paper).
  3. Add the cottage cheese and the eggs to a bowl. Season with garlic powder, salt and pepper, and mix thoroughly with a spoon. You can also mix in a blender if you prefer.
  4. Pour the mixture onto the tray, and spread into a thin layer with a spatula. You can spread it into a circle or just to the shape of the pan.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for five minutes.
  6. Fill the flatbread with your desired fillings as you would a traditional flatbread, sandwich or wrap, and serve. Enjoy!

The Benefits

As well as tasting great, cottage cheese flatbread is a great, high-protein, gluten free alternative to bread. It’s incredibly versatile, pairing well with a range of fillings and flavours, just like traditional bread, but with an added tangy taste. Cottage cheese is also a good source of calcium, phosphorus, vitamin B12, riboflavin and selenium, and can be found in low- and non-fat varieties.
