Ingredients

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.
    1 large potato
  • Slice the cucumber thinly. Cut tomatoes.
    3 oz cucumber, 3 oz cherry tomatoes
  • When ready, slice a deep groove through the middle of the potato in both directions. Repeat the process diagonally.
  • Add salt and pepper to the potato.
    Salt and pepper to taste
  • Top the potato with cucumbers, tomatoes and cottage cheese.
    ½ cup low fat cottage cheese
  • Enjoy!

NOTES

  • Tips: It is cooked in the microwave to save time, but you can absolutely use the oven as well.
  • Make-ahead? Yes, the potato can be reheated, add the topping fresh.
