Ingredients You Need

As mentioned, just 8 ingredients combine to create this gourmet-looking recipe. 

  • Cottage Cheese – You can’t have a cottage cheese bowl without cottage cheese! We recommend using full-fat varieties for the best flavor and creamiest texture. We like the Good Culture brand, but whatever you hand on hand can be used. 
  • Feta Cheese – This combines with the cottage cheese for a slightly tangy flavor and extra creamy texture. Again, we suggest using full-fat varieties. 
  • Olive Oil – This helps combine the cottage chee mixture, making sure it’s smooth. In addition, it is used to marinate the tomatoes, infusing them with rich flavor and healthy fats. 
  • Tomatoes – Baby or grape tomatoes work best because they have a naturally sweet flavor and can be quartered without becoming too watery or falling apart. 
  • Herbs and Spices – Chopped parsley, basil, salt, and pepper combine to create a savory, Italian-inspired flavor that balances out the heaviness of the fats. 

How to Prepare and Easy Cottage Cheese and Tomatoes Bowl 

Although it may look fancy, this cottage cheese bowl is quick and easy to make. Here’s what to do: 

  1. Create the Base. Add the cottage cheese, feta, and olive oil to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until the ingredients are well-combined and smooth. 
  2. Marinate the Tomatoes. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Set the mixture aside for at least 15 minutes. 
  3. Serve. Spread the whipped cottage cheese evenly in a shallow bowl or on a plate. Spoon the marinated tomatoes on top, and enjoy!
