Cottage Cheese and Nut Loaf

"I love vintage recipes. This one comes from a 1922 Metorpolitan Life Insurance cookbook, and falls unter the category of "meat substitutes". It can be served as a main dish, or as a side. I personally perfer it with a huge, and VERY mixed salad with bread, as a whole meal."

    RE: Blancpage--- You can make your own nondairy substitute for ricotta cheese or cottage cheese. Mash a block of tofu with a fork and mix in a few teaspoons of lemon juice. You can use this "tofu cheese" to replace ricotta cheese or cottage cheese in lasagne, stuffed shells, manicotti, Danish pastries, cheese blintzes, and many other recipes.

    Dang, DEEP, I was hoping to be able to try your recipe. It looked kind of lonely. :D It's too bad that there is no non-dairy/non-milk-product substitute for cottage cheese. I used to eat cottage cheese often, I loved it, eaten alone or with fruit. Since developing a serious and painful digestive disorder, milk and dairy products (among other types of food) are banes to my intestines. I think this recipe sounds really good, and maybe something I could eat safely, butfor that dang cottage cheese. Anyway, I'll quit my rambling. I just wanted to throw you a comment. :)


Grew up in the South. Love Southern cooking! Atlanta has been home for 32 years. Moved here from East N.C. Love cooking, eating, traveling, trying new foods and cultures. I run 4 home based businesses since retiring from the telecommunications world at a "tender" age. My passions are food, nutrition, and feeling GREAT!...Peeves...hmmm....well, it takes a LOT to get me there. How I rate: 1 Star-You'll never get that from me. I'll go for "no" stars first and tell you what went wrong. 2 Star-Doubtful you'll ever get that either. If it looks that grim in the first place, it's doubtful I'll even try it. 3 Star-I tried it as you posted it. I won't interject my own personal opinions. Something was "objectionable", and I'll allow you the opportunity to correct it. Again, doubtful you'll ever get this rating from me. 4 Star-Great job! I'll try it again, and probably again. This is likely to become a fave, but some slight alterations more suit my tastes. 5 Star-This will never disappear from my table. It's a staple. I liked what you offered, and LOVED the outcome. This does not mean I won't alter it to meet my taste requirements, but your recipe was SUPERB as is.
