Tofu Cottage Cheese

This tasted really close to the real thing. The important thing here is, use a brand of tofu that doesn't have a strong smell or taste. There is this one particular brand, and I made my first batch, and hated it. I'm thinking I will never buy that brand again. This second batch I bought, doesn't have a smell, and is pretty much tasteless.

1 pound med-firm tofu, drained & mashed
2/3 cup firm-extra firm silken tofu
1 TBSP lemon juice
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp sugar
Optional: (but what makes it yummy, 1 can crushed pineapple)

Sprinkle 1/2 tsp salt on mashed tofu in bowl. In food processor, mix silken tofu, remaining salt, sugar & lemon juice until very smmoth. Mix together. Add pineapple (I used some of the juice). Refrigerate.

I made half the recipe, and it was a good amount. With using only half the recipe, I used a small can of pineapple.

That didn't come out right...If I think of your picture above as rice pudding, it looks pretty good. No way regular cottage cheese would taste like rice pudding. Yuck!

I don't really like cottage cheese. I stomached it when I was trying to do the Atkins diet. Now, if I think of it as rice pudding, it looks pretty good!

Okay Tammie ... you KNOW I have a weak stomach! I had to scroll this picture off the screen so I didn't have to look at it! =)

I think it probably tastes fine, but in the pic, the pineapple makes it look gross. lol I'm sure Joci would love it! She loves the tofu scramble and claims it's her 'favorite!'
