  1. Soften the yeast in the water in a large bowl.
  2. Add the cottage cheese, garlic, egg, oil, oregano, sugar, salt, and baking soda and stir well.
  3. Add the flour to the mixture, blend well, and put in a warm place to rise, loosely covered, until doubled in size.
  4. Stir the dough down and turn out into a well-greased, 2-quart casserole dish. Let rise for another 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  5. Bake the bread for 40 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned, then let rest for 10 minutes. Slice and serve warm.
