Hungarian Cheese Spread - low fat version


1/2 pound Liptauer or farmers cheese at room temperature
1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese
1 teaspoon sweet Hungarian paprika
1/2 teaspoon pounded caraway seeds
1 small grated onion or 3 green onions, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon mustard
Black pepper

Serve with:
toasted protein bread

Makes about 2 cups 


Put cheese into a medium bowl. With an electric mixer beat in cottage cheese (original recipe is with 1 stick of unsalted butter). Add remaining ingredients, combining thoroughly. Adjust seasonings. Refrigerate at least 2 hours for flavors to marry. Remove from refrigerator 15 minutes before serving.
Serve on bread, or cut the ends of pepper, remove seeds and stuff pepper with the cheese mixture. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours and slice with a sharp knife. Sprinkle with capers or caraway seeds.

If you want to turn this into a veggie dip, add more cottage cheese.
