5 eggs
9 oz. cottage cheese
1 pinch salt
1 tablespoon ground psyllium husk powder
butter or coconut oil, for frying

8 oz. cream cheese or ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons green pesto or red pesto
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ red onion, thinly sliced
sea salt
ground black pepper

Mix cream cheese, 1 tablespoon olive oil and pesto. Set aside.
Mix eggs, cottage cheese, salt and psyllium husk powder with a hand blender into a smooth batter. Let sit for 10 minutes.
Heat a couple of tablespoons butter or olive oil in a large frying pan on medium heat. Put a few dollops of the cottage cheese batter, maximum 2–3 inches in diameter, in the pan and fry the pancakes for a few minutes on each side.
Serve with a generous amount of cream cheese mixture and a few red onion slices. Top with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Drizzle the remaining olive oil on top.

If you don’t have any pesto at home, you can add flavor to the cream cheese with other things, like finely chopped chives, fresh herbs or smoked fish roe.
