Scrambled Cottage Cheese

Eggs are an important part of breakfast in most countries. The Costo Rico breakfast has a combination where they serve Gallo Pinto with scrambled eggs. Since I could not cook eggs I found its substitute with cottage cheese. I made scrambled cottage cheese and it got done in a jiffy, looked just perfect and tasted fantastic.

I made absolutely fresh cottage cheese and once the milk curdled I just strained it . I wanted it to be a little moist so did not make a block.
