Polish Spring Cottage Cheese

First vegetables available in spring- radishes and spring onions are the basis of my favorite Polish spring cottage cheese. I use both radishes and radish sprouts. Sprouts are rich in minerals and can be easily grown at home.

In Poland we use dry write cheese – farmers cheese – Twaróg. It is easy available in each grocery store in Poland. My Grandma was sometimes making curd herself, using fresh milk from her neighbor, who had cows.

Try also Paprykarz, smoked fish bread spread, very popular in PRL.

Cottage cheese served


  • 350 g/ 0,7 lb dry farmers cheese (curd, twaróg)
  • 1 cup sour cream ( or Greek style yogurt)
  • spring onions
  • few radishes
  • radish sprouts
  • half cucumber
  • parsley
  • salt, freshly grounded black pepper

Mash curd with a fork, add yogurt ( or sour cream) and mix.

Add chopped vegetables. Season with salt and freshly grounded black pepper.

Serve Polish spring cottage cheese with fresh bread. Yummy:)
