Scared of Quark!!
I was a member of slimming world 8 years ago and lost over 3st. Even back then there was always talk of quark in group although I never knew what it was, what it tasted like or how to use it.
Fast forward 8 years I'm now married and have a baby and I'm therefore far more accomplished at cooking but quark still scares the hell out of me!!!
Any suggestions for using it? What are the general uses for it?
Sorry for sounding like a plonker, I'm just a bit nervous to buy it and not really know what it tastes like or what I'm doing with it!
Don't worry Jolly. Quark is one of those ingredients you will never hear about if you are not trying to lose weight. I too did not know what to do with Quark at first.
First: what does it taste like? Well, to me anyway, it tastes like nothing. It doesn't really have much flavour so your flavour needs to be in the other ingredients. But that is actually a bonus because it can be used in so many ways to add creaminess and texture to both sweet and savoury dishes.
creamy pasta sauces or creamy baked potato fillings
smoked salmon pate
mousses (great for puds - chocolate mousse, strawberry mousse)
dips for julienned veggies
toppings for scan bran cakes
Do you have access to the SW website - there are pages and pages of recipes there if you just type quark into the search box
I love quark!
I made a ham and leek cheese bake
Half syn cake
Oh wow thanks guys! I guess it isn't too scary if I just think of it as a texture rather than a flavour- love the idea of using it as a mousse! :-))
