confusingly tasty cottage sprout salad

cottage sprout salad

i wasn't going to blog this, cos it didn't taste that interesting until i added the last ingredient - the caramelised onions, which really sorted out the flavours ... and even made plain cottage cheese vaguely edible.

  1. a medium onion
  2. large handful sprouts (i had cress, mustard, beansprouts)
  3. 2 tbsp plain cottage cheese
  4. 1 tsp capers
  5. sprinkling dried chilli

  • chop the onion and spread on a plate. bung in the microwave for at least 5 mins on high to caramelise.
  • put the sprouts in a bowl, add the chopped capers and cottage cheese. add the chilli, if using, and squish it all together.
  • when the microwave goes bing, stir in the warm onions. the sweetness of the onions balances the tartness of the sprouts.... mmmm.
