Hi I was just about to make this for lunch and realised I haven’t got any quark in, could I substitute this for Greek yoghurt??
Many thanks x

Hi, could I use low fat or normal cream cheese instead of quark and reduce the quantity of cheddar to get a less cheesy taste to suit our fam? Looking for a really mild taste.

    LisaMonday 18th May 2020

    Hi Jo. Yes you could! You could even replace the quark with half fat creme fraiche although that would change the nutritional values, if they are important to you. Hope you enjoy the recipe

Is there anything I can use instead of quark please ??

    LisaWednesday 13th May 2020

    Hi Natalie. You could use some half fat creme fraice, or if you want to keep the calories low, blitz up some cottage cheese in a food processor until it is smooth. Hope this helps.
