Milk kefir cottage cheese & egg white omelette

This milk kefir cottage cheese & egg white omelette is a great way to start the day. I use ‘single day’ fermented kefir milk which I then strain through a cheesecloth to remove excess whey which leaves you with kefir cottage cheese. I let it strain while refrigerated otherwise it will continue to ferment.  (Only using one day fermentation makes it more cream and less tangy.)


  • 2 egg whites
  • 3 tablespoons of milk kefir cottage cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoons Tamari & dash of fish sauce
  • 2 small shallots
  • 4 small mushrooms (any kind you like)
  • 2 sprigs of fresh dill, or other seasonal herb you like.
    Optional – 2 teaspoons of coconut or macadamina oil, or other quality cooking oil
  • Non-stick frying pan


  1. Chop mushrooms, shallots & dill finely then combine all ingredients well in a mixing bowl.
  2. Heat pan to low to medium heat.
  3. Add omelette mixture to your pre-heated non-stick pan and cover to allow it to steam as well as cook from the bottom
    (No need to turn over).
  4. Or if you do not have a non-stick pan, add the mixture to the oiled pan and fry on low/medium heat for 3 minutes on one side and 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on the other.
  5. I have served it here with a health salad topped with pepita seeds and a spinach dressing, but you can combine it with anything that grabs your fancy, bet adventurous, try something new an experiment.
