What is QUARK ?
Quark by Sainsbury’s – 1£
This mysterious cheese variety is a weight loss favourite .
But what makes QUARK so healthy and how do you use it ?
QUARK is soft ,fresh cheese,that has a similar creamy texture to sour cream.
Like low – fat yoghurt or fromage frais !QUARK contains less fat than most creamy cheeses.
As for nutritional benefits ,QUARK is a rich source of protein , it’s high in calcium which is essential for strong bones and teeth ,vitamin A for good eyesight and B vitamins that supports the nervous system .
How to use it ?
QUARK is very versatile cheese to cook with and can be use in sweet or savoury dishes .
Use it as a substitute for full -fat sour cream in cheesecakes , dips ,sauces ,cakes recipes ,sandwich spread ,easy snacks or breakfast mixed with nuts , seeds or fruits .
This recipe is very easy to make ,very tasty and most important syn free !
Syn Free Hummus
2 tins chickpeas
1 pot Quark
2 crushed garlic
Salt and pepper
Place chickpeas ,quark and garlic in a food processor and blitz until quite smooth . Then start to add a little salt and pepper and a squirt of lemon juice ,blitz again for a minute then taste again .
If the mixture is very thick just add a little water to make it softer .
It’s a perfect snack to serve with carrots and celery sticks.
Kids will love it !
Let me know what you think .
When I can,I like to start the day with a relaxing and quiet breakfast.
By habit as soon as I wake up I drink a glass of warm water with a few drops of lemon.
I prefer to start the day with a lemon tea to cleanse your body , specially after a party weekend .
Next I make oatmeal .
It’s healthy and delicious !
Here is the recipe :
Combine oats and water in a small saucepan and bring to boil together with a cinnamon stick and lemon peel .
If you want you can add some cold milk for consistency .
Top with jam,nuts,bananas,berries or honey .
Give it a try and let me know what you think .
GOOD MORNING EVERYONE !
