Variations on a theme for quark-linseed oil cream

There are so many variations on the theme of quark-linseed cream that it is impossible to do more that tickle your taste-buds, whet your appetite and get your imagination going! Once you have the basic idea, you’ll soon be incorporating the quark-linseed cream into your everyday diet and delighting the faddiest of friends with your delicious desserts and dressings!

Serve the quark-linseed oil cream with traditional muesli or just with any fresh whole, chopped, pureed fruit. This can be traditional apples or pears, berries, or more exotic fruits like papaya, pineapple or kiwi.

Some fruits like blackcurrants, gooseberries and rhubarb are best lightly cooked. Prunes and figs can be raw or soaked and cooked.
You can flavour the full- blended the Quark-Linseed Oil Cream by gently stirring in:

  • A mashed banana
  • A squeeze of lemon juice and/or grated lemon zest
  • Ground cinnamon and/or ground dried ginger in pinch or more to taste, goes well with apple, prunes, figs.
  • Grated fresh ginger – it tastes beautifully gingery and lemony and goes well with fruit compote, blackcurrant or raspberry goes very well with it.
  • Vanilla extract – about ½ teaspoon (not synthetic essence), a little extra skimmed milk and use in place of cream or custard; it is particularly good with baked or stewed apples or rhubarb. If you add the ground linseed into the cooked fruit you have a healthy alternative to fruit crumble that is totally Budwig compliant.
  • These are recommended by Dr Johanna Budwig but aren’t easy to find in the UK: Seabuckthorn juice, Rosehip pulp
  • Any fruit juice. i.e grape, pineapple, cherry, berries, orange,
  • Cocoa or cacao (raw ground chocolate beans) powder, just add to taste for a chocolate pudding. Good with strawberries, raspberries, figs and prunes.
  • Finely chopped or ground nuts

I see there is worldwide support for the Budwig protocol through various forums. This website shares information that makes it easier to follow the Budwig Diet in the UK and keep it as close as possible to Johanna Budwig’s original diet. Linseed oil and ground linseed has certainly helped me, to take more control of my own health and seeing my health improve by doing so. This is why I feel this protocol needs to be more widely known. This Budwig diet is too good not to share. I hope it helps you as much as it has helped me. I highly recommend Flax Farm for all of the products I use for my recipes.
