Ingredients
Makes 4 servings

  • Two 10-ounce baking potatoes, scrubbed
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup onions
  • 1 cup broccoli

  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Wash, dry and chop onions, broccoli, carrot, parsley and garlic.

Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C). Bake potatoes until tender (aprox. 45 minutes). Reduce oven temperature to 350 F 175 C). Pour oil into medium nonstick skillet and heat over medium heat 60 seconds.
Add onions and cook, stirring frequently, until soft and light brown, 4-5 minutes.

Carfully halve potatoes lengthwise, leaving skins intact. Scoop out pulp and combine in mixing bowl with broccoli/carrot mixture, the cottage cheese, parsley, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Mash everything with a fork until the stuffing has a smooth texture.
