    i usually make a carbonara,

    cook bacon, mushrooms, and onions in a pan,
    whilst in a bowl mix:
    x2 tbs quark
    x2 tbs skimmed milk
    x2 tbs parmasam cheese
    x1 Egg

    when the bacon etc is cooked, add the mixture at the last minute to warm through and there you have it!! xxxx

    I like quark as a substitute for fatty Greek yoghurt, and it's also really nice as a dollop in a blended vegetable soup, or to tone down a spicy curry.

    Hi ther. I'm new to this site, and am finding it a fantastic boost for help tips and advice!!. I use quark all the time, and have for years, even when i'm not dieting. I use it to stir through pasta, blend with garlic puree for dips, or to fill jacket potatoes. I love it to use with vegetables, when making veg curry. just stir in, together with a teaspoon of curry paste. Its gorgeous. I also make cheesecake style desserts. I put frozen fruit at the bottom, sprinkled with splenda sweetner, then quark, then half a crumbled biscuit on the top. Give it a go. I always have three or 4 tubs in my fridge. Its invaluable!!, xx

    Hey! Glad your first use was a success! I find it good for free quiches :) just throw a load of veg in the bottom of a tin, dollop quark on top, the cover in beaten egg. Takes about 25 mins in the oven, and is a quick and healthy snack :)

    What does it taste like? It's one of those things I look at but am too suspicious of it to buy it!

    I had my first go with it today too. Made a half syn roulade. It was horrid. But I don't think the quark was solely to blame lol. Might try a pasta sauce next!!
