    Just a couple of ideas for quark picked up at foodie night last night....

    Quark mixed in with chopped red onion, chives and an ounce of strong cheese. Leave it for a couple of hours and it makes a lovely cheesy spread, all for a HEX or 6 syns.

    Quark mixed in with a tin of salmon and some dill makes a yummy salmon pate

    Quark and lemon curd - yum yum!

    Leave them all for a couple of hours at least to allow the quark to take on the flavours and then spread on ryvita or scan bran or even thin down with a bit of natural yoghurt for a dip.

    I've got the cheesy one in the fridge now ready for lunch on a jacket and some dips later tonight. :)

    I love quark, it goes with everything. I love it with tinned salmon as above or spread on toast with beans on top, or even on toast with just salt and pepper.
    I'll try the lemon curd one, and the cheese one. I bet they're yummy

    Lol...it's so simple to make. The recipe is in the Best Ever recipe book, however that recipe calls for Sherry but I don't have any and wasn't prepared to buy any just for a trifle, so mine is plain strawberry trifle and 3 syns if you use the sherry :)

    I made a nice mustardy creamy salad dressing using wholegrain mustard, yogurt and quark. Lush it was! Made the syns of the mustard go a lot further and was tangy and tasty! :D

    I am always looking for quark ideas. Keep em coming!

    I've got a tub of Quark sat in my fridge at home, but so far I just keep staring at it then walking away - at least now I have a few good ideas of what to do with it. J x

    i have found quark fantastic. When i started the plan i was like what the hell is that now i use it all the time! my favourite is to mixed it with loads of garlic and pepper and stuff peppers with it the pop them in the oven with a little cheese(hexA) till golden brown yummy! i also use it in sandwiches with chopped onions, tomato, peppers, cucumber makes a lovely crunchy sandwich filler. Thank good i invested in a nicer dicer had save me so much time chopping veg for salads and sandwich fillers!
