About this recipe: This is a unique starter to serve if you're having an Ethiopian-themed dinner party. Cottage cheese is spiced to perfection and served with wilted spinach, cooked with a hint of chilli for just the right amount of heat.
What a unique way to use cottage cheese. I chose this recipe as part of my Ethiopian dinner because my husband has throat cancer and cottage cheese is one of the things he can eat with no problems. I love the citrusy-earthy flavor of the cardamom in this dish. I'll be making this again...thanks for a wonderful recipe! - 27 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The flavor using fresh ginger is far superior to the dried. If you don't use much ginger, cut it in chunks & keep it in the freezer in bags until needed. I have sensitive fingers so I either wear rubber gloves to handle hot peppers or my husband, who is not bothered by the capsaisin, chops them. It's delicious when made according to the recipe. - 14 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
An interesting use of cottage cheese! The spices used are very unique, albeit expensive. Changes to the recipe include 1/2 tsp. of powdered ginger instead of 1 Tbs of minced fresh ginger and less spinach. Due to my inability to handle anything with capsaicin, I also skipped the green peppers. Overall, I call it a success with its ethnic twist on boring 'ol cottage cheese and unique use of flavors. - 15 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
