Today I’m going to share with you one of my all time favorite super-quick meal recipe. This takes about 10-15 minutes to throw together and is a vegetarian alternative to scrambled eggs.

For all you egg lovers out there, just substitute the cottage cheese with eggs. And within sheer minutes, you will be sitting down to a warm, hearty and healthy meal.
