    I`ve just bought some quark, but not sure how I use it. Can I use it in savoury recipes?
    I am making a curry tonight, could I use it instead of fromage frais or is it totally different?
    Does it curdle when you heat it beacause the from frais does and it spoils my curry :(
    Sorry for all the questions!!!
    love Lucy xx

    I've just used some to make a smoked salmon pate (syn free on RED!!).

    Packet of smoked salmon (200g - Tesco value)
    1/2 tub of quark
    2-4 tablespoons of fromage frais (didn't really keep track or use measuring spoons. Approximate amount, just to thin it slightly)

    Seasoning

    salt
    pepper
    lemon juice
    smoked paprika (JUST A LITTLE!!)

    Blitzed it in the blender. Took about 10 mins max!! (and that was probably because I was faffing around!)

    If you're after something sweet, it makes a GORGEOUS little mousse

    Take some quark, mix in with a satchet of white options hot chocolate, add a spoonful of sweetner, and vanilla essence, mix it all up, maybe add some mixed fruits like banana, strawberries, blueberries..it's GORGEOUS!

    And to answer your questions, fat free dairy like quark and fromage frais are prone to curdling at high temperatures so only add them at the end od cooking, off the heat and not straight from the fridge.

    Hope you enjoy your curry

    Another way to use Quark, is to add it to a 'jelly mousse'. We've often made the 1 sachet of sugar free jelly, made up to just half a pint and cooled and whisked with a 'matching' pot of Mullerlight yogurt.

    If you add a pot of Quark and whisk it all well, it makes a much richer, more creamy dessert. And there is a big bowl of it for just ONE and a HALF syns!!!

    I use it in sandwiches as a syn free spread, makes my ham salad sarnies stick together better.
