This list starts with savory low-carb cottage cheese recipes, followed by low-carb cottage cheese dessert ideas. Sounds like the perfect meal, doesn't it?
This Zucchini Lasagna has about 8 grams net carbs and is meaty, cheesy, and absolutely delicious! Healthy cottage cheese is substituted in place of ricotta to create something so good, you won't miss the grains or carbs!
It's such a great idea to use cottage cheese instead of heavy cream in tomato soup to add some creaminess. It adds protein and thickens the soup. This soup has about 13 grams of net carbs per serving, but that's all natural sugars from the tomatoes, so that's a-okay to me!
This mustard cottage cheese dip tastes like a deviled egg dip! It even has a hardboiled egg blended into it for extra protein, creaminess, savory-ness.... and none of the carbs. About 4 grams of net carbs per serving.
This one is very unique but so so good! It's inspired by an Ethiopian cottage cheese recipe and features spicy cottage cheese over collard greens. So you get protein, fiber, and nutrients all in one low-carb dish! Grain-free, gluten-free.
My readers have said that this pumpkin whipped cottage cheese is LIFE-CHANGING! It's silky and pudding-like. The perfect balance of creamy and pumpkin spice-y. Use your favorite low-carb sweetener, such as monkfruit, blend, and enjoy! Grain-free, gluten-free.
If you're like me and crave cookie dough for dessert, here's a great lower carb one to try made with cottage cheese, almond flour, and protein powder. It has 8 grams of net carbs as written, but you can substitute the maple syrup with a low-carb sweetener for even less carbs.
Fresh berries, gluten-free crust, high-protein and low-carb filling, and absolutely creamy and delicious! This no-bake cheesecake has about 5 grams of net carbs, and is the best gluten-free, grain-free dessert you will have.
