    :confused: And I don't know what to do with it?!!
    I'm going to make a quiche to keep in the fridge, do I just put it all in? Do I need to do anything with it first?? HELP! Never used it before :rolleyes:

    For quiche, throw the whole lot in and mix with some eggs, also nice with some cottage cheese if you have it. I make a huge quiche each time to keep in the fridge, normally full of mushrooms/onions/bacon/peppers etc. I cook mine long and slow but I've never looked for cooking instructions. :eek:

    I make syn free lemon meringue with it too - if you do a search on here you'll find a few quark recipes.
    The lemon meringue is yum!

    Quark is usually with the soft cheeses in the cheese aisle

    I haven't tried this myself but give it a go.

    Creamy Carbonara - serves 4, 1 syn per serving
    2 tbsp parmesan
    4 tbsp quark
    7 tbsp skimmed milk
    1 egg
    2 tbsp chives
    salt and pepper
    1 onion
    4 baby leeks
    fry light
    2 garlic cloves

    Mix parmesan, quark, milk, egg, chives and seasoning in a bowl, set aside.

    Boil or steam onion and leeks.

    Heat pan spray with frylight. Add garlic and fry for a minute then add onion and milk mixtures and cook for few mins stirring continuously until thickens.

    If you try it let me know how it turns out please :)

    Hope it turns out well, don't shout at me if it doesn't. ;)

    Just noticed I have a creamy basil pesto recipe too, I haven't made that one either but can copy it for you if you like.

    I've just bought 2 tubs of quark too... that was about a week ago now, and I can't remember the recipe I wanted to try lol...
    It seems that there are alot of recipes that need quark, but then you buy it and you go a bit brain dead lol

    Ooh haven't had Carbonara for a while - it's lovely - think I'll make it this week!

    I don't use milk, chives or leeks though and add either Ham (heb) or Quorn chilled bacon style pieces (free) and mushrooms.

    I also don't add the parmesan until after it's cooked for a stronger flavour.

    The Tesco near me sells Meadow Churn quark. It is with the soft cheeses, ie feta, mozzerella etc.

    Ask someone, whenever I go to a new shop I can never find it and spend ages looking! They do have it but it's often hidden. Maybe it's a game? :p
