    Quark - how to use?

    Hi all

    Still very new to this, but am loving all the great recipes and ideas on here.

    I've seen quite a few recipes with quark in them. Up until now i'd never heard of it.

    I have now bought some but have no idea what i should do with it or how it tastes...

    Has anyone got any good recipe suggestions for trials

    I think i've also put this post on my blog somewhere. Need to work out how to remove lol

    The nicest thing I do with it is carbonara

    1 pot quark
    3 egg yolks pepper to season
    Spaghetti or pasta
    Ham or bacon
    Garlic
    Chilli flakes
    Mushrooms
    Red Onion
    Peas
    Cabbage
    Or any veg you want


    Put pasta on to boil,
    Cook bacon/ ham with garlic and chilli flakes and all the veg,
    Mix quark with egg yolks and pepper
    Once pasta cooked mix it all together with quark & egg mixture and enjoy
    This is my hubbys fav meal at the moment

    i have used quark as a topping to fruit just add some sweetner.
    it is used in the half syn roularde, the recipe is on this web site.
    you can make the slimming world flan with it.
    hope this is any use to you.

    my fav is putting your cheese allowance in it and leaving in the fride over night, the quark takes on the full flavour of the cheese and is greaaat for cheesaholics like me!!

    I use it on jacket potato with a table spoon of spicy chutney and serve with cold meat and a big salad.

    On crispbreads with salad or marmite.

    On fruit salad with vanilla essence and sweetner added.

    On stewed fruit with sweetner.

    On top of porrage with sweetner and fruit.

    Spread on toasted nimble with marmite.

    We go through 6 tubs a week

    I just mixed up a tub with a white options hot choc and some sweetener and it really is lovely! I was a bit hesitant as it sounds weird but it's sooo nice and going on top of my strawberries for supper in a mo!


    How do you reckon you'd make it savory and take the tanginess out of it? I'd like it with chives or something but not sure on the flavour.

    Thanks for the ideas folks. I finally tried it in carbonara last night.

    I was actually quite impressed.

    Will have to try a few more now, although sainsburys don't seem to sell it my way!

    I do a very similar one with just fromage frais and jelly. I leave a big bowl in the fridge and just take some out when I feel the munchies coming on. It really is lovely. Love my S W puds
