A while back my husband expressed interest in introducing more vegetarian dishes into our diet and leaning more toward becoming a pescatarian. So, being interested in cooking and willing to try new things I was excited about this new adventure. Problem being, I didn’t know where to start. Luckily for me, I was having my regular lunch date with a girl friend (my mentor at work and an all around amazing lady). She’s a vegetarian, so I knew she’d have something for me to try. She sent me a few recipes and I had to try one of them right away.  It’s called Cottage Cheese Roast and it’s a vegetarian meat loaf. So I made the recipe, not sure how it was going to turn out, but totally game. I served it to the family and dug in. My first bite was a pleasant surprise, second bite was even better. I loved it! My family didn’t feel the same. (Why is that you find a recipe you love and no one else likes it?) I had to share the results with my friend, so I called her the next day and gave her an update. She said that her husband likes it even better the second day, just like meat loaf, he likes to make sandwiches out of it and eat it cold. I’ve never been one for that, but it gave me an idea to serve the leftovers as a dip with chips. My family loved that, go figure.

Cottage Cheese Roast Stuffed Apple DinnerIt’s been months and I decided to try the recipe again, but this time, at the suggestion of my husband, I was going to stuff green bell peppers with the cottage cheese roast and bake it that way. I hate green bell peppers. So when I was shopping I got a green apple for me and green peppers for everyone else.  Since it was a first for me, I stuffed the fruits and vegetables and then put the leftovers in a baking dish and baked it like the recipe calls for, so we would have both versions. When all was said and done, I still love it, and had to restrain myself! They liked it better, but no one went back for seconds. My daughter is looking forward to tomorrow and the leftovers with pita chips. So at least there’s that.Cottage Cheese Roast Stuffed Apple

If you’re interested and want to try it, let me know and I’ll post the recipe, I highly recommend it, not that my opinion is popular around here!
