Rice and Cottage Cheese

I’ve talked before about how much I love the rice cooker. I will cook several servings of brown rice or wild rice and then eat it in a variety of ways throughout the week. Here is another variation that I enjoy.

Rice and Cottage Cheese

  • 1/2 cup of brown rice (3 points)
  • 1/2 cup of fat free cottage cheese (2 points)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup of jalepeno peppers (0 points)

Total: 5 points

Mix the rice, cottage cheese and jalepeno peppers in a microwave-safe bowl and cook for one to two minutes on high. The cottage cheese will melt and create a cheesy, creamy rice that tastes a lot like risotto without the extra calories.

If you use 1/2 cup of jalepeno peppers, this with count as one vegetable serving and 1/2 of a dairy serving.

Try this recipe and tell me what you think.

    I Googled “rice cottage cheese” to see if it had a name because it’s my new favorite dinner! I don’t mix it up, though – just sprinkle in some cheddar cheese then add cottage cheese on top. I started doing that almost a year ago with noodles and thought, Why not try it with rice? I thought I was crazy, but apparently not! 🙂 Thanks!
