Customizing Your Savory Cottage Cheese Bowl
The beauty of the Savory Cottage Cheese Bowl lies in its versatility. This dish can easily be adapted to cater to different dietary preferences or simply to add a new twist to your regular recipe. Here are some ways you can customize this dish:
- Protein – While this recipe uses cottage cheese as the primary source of protein, there are plenty of alternatives that work just as well. Greek yogurt can provide a tangy twist, while tofu or tempeh can make this recipe vegan-friendly. For those who prefer meat, shredded chicken or turkey would be a delicious addition.
- Vegetables – Feel free to swap out or add any vegetables of your choice. Bell peppers, radishes or carrots can add a nice crunch, while roasted vegetables like zucchini or eggplant can give the dish a warm, hearty feel.
- Spices and Herbs – The everything bagel seasoning is a must-try, but don’t be afraid to experiment with other spices and herbs. Fresh basil, dill or parsley can add a refreshing touch, while smoked paprika or cayenne pepper can bring a kick of heat.
