“Don't knock it till you try it! This is extremely low cal. If you use fat free cottage cheese you get 40 calories for 1/4 cup. Boullion cube is 5 calories and 3 cups of lettuce is under 20 calories. So the whole things is less than 65 calories but tastes rich and creamy.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place clove of garlic into food processor, add fresh shredded lettuce and puree. The leaves of lettuce will not cut up too well but don't worry about it.
  2. Place the lettuce and garlic into a microwave-safe bowl and add a crushed boullion cube. Add 1/4 cup water. Microwave on high for 2 minutes.
  3. Puree mixture. Stir in 1/4 cup cottage cheese. Don't puree if you like the curd. Add more water if its too thick for your taste.
  4. Microwave on high for 2 more minutes.
  5. Season with ground black pepper and any other spices you wish.
