Ingredients

  • 1 large potato
  • ½ cup cottage cheese
  • ¼ cucumber

Optional:

Instructions

  • Microwave the large potato for nine minutes. A medium potato needs seven minutes and a small potato needs five minutes. To add extra potatoes allow an extra four minutes for a large potato, three minutes for a medium potato and two minutes for a small potato. This is using a 1000w microwave – adjust for slightly longer or shorter if yours is a higher or lower power. Don't forget to pierce the potatoes with a fork a few times.
  • Slice the cucumber thinly.
  • When ready, slice a deep groove through the middle of the potato in both directions. Repeat the process diagonally.
  • Add optional butter, salt and pepper to the potato.
  • Layer the cucumber slices and cottage cheese over the potato.
  • Enjoy!
