The inspiration for this Modern Day Farmers Chop Suey recipe came from the opportunity to test products from LIFEWAY KEFIR.  The products included Farmers Cheese and Kefir cups.  Farmers cheese is cottage cheese like and the Kefir cups are their variety of yogurt.  My introduction to farmers chop suey was my wife.  She grew up eating cottage cheese with cucumber, radish and green onions.  There are a few variations but I believe these are the base ingredients for the traditional recipe.

In this recipe, my learning was how to work with black radishes.  I picked them to add to this recipe because I thought they were so cool looking – they are BLACK.  I have not seen them before.  Then, I went to a second grocery store this weekend and there they were again.  Go figure.  I believe they are probably best cooked.  I will have to play with them some more.  I used the black radishes for the base of my dish and it really served as a garnish.  I cut them into matchsticks and served them on the top of the farmers cheese and that added some good crunch to the recipe – much like the radish does to the traditional recipe.

I sampled two kinds of farmers cheese and two kinds of yogurt.  The lavender looking color is farmer’s cheese with, you guessed it, lavender mixed in.  The kefir cup on top is again blueberry yogurt with more lavender mixed in.  Each of the flavors were complimented with fresh fruit.  This dish brings color, texture and flavor yet it is so simple.
