Baked Pumpkin and Cottage Cheese - yep you read correctly. As I sit here smelling this delicious recipe bake I am intrigued to discover just how this is going to taste.

On my search for another pumpkin recipe I found this one and thought HEALTHY! Yes all the ingredients in this recipe are healthy and lots of protein. This could really become a regular meal around this house. Most especially this month (October), the month of the pumpkin.

I know sometimes when we are trying to find PROTEIN sources we often get stuck thinking MEAT only but hey Cottage Cheese and Eggs are also GREAT sources of protein. Unless of course, you have a dairy problem. But if not...

And this uses pumpkin and is baked hmmmm

OK here are my pics of the process:

Here is the RECIPE:

Ingredients

1/2 c fat-free Cottage Cheese
1/2 c canned pumpkin
1 egg white
7 grams sugar substitute - like two packets of Stevia
1/2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth
3. Pour into a Pyrex bowl or small bowls
4. Can sprinkle cinnamon and sugar substitute on top
5. Bake for 90 minutes or until texture is slightly firm to the touch. Can broil for a minuter  if you want it crispier.
6. Can eat immediately or refrigerate and eat cold.
 

Now I added a tablespoon of fat free Greek Yogurt as well for a little more taste.

Here is a picture of my Baked Pumpkin and Cottage Cheese Recipe.

LOVE IT! Had it warm right out of the oven and was thinking it would taste good with some Vanilla Ice Cream lol OK well maybe as a free time meal but really it was very tasty and my house smells incredible. Like FALL. Next it to give it to the kids and hubs and get there feedback but I am confident they will like it too as it is sweet and has lots of flavor. Minimum of calories with lots of flavor and pretty much protein - WINNER. Try it yourself and let me know what YOU THINK.
