  Cottage cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Plain yogurt 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Shredded mozzarella cheese 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Grated parmesan cheese 2 Tablespoon
  Grated lemon zest 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Carrots 3 Medium
  Chicken broth 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Low Sodium Or Regular)
  Lemon juice 3 Tablespoon
  Pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon (Preferably White 3 Stallions)
  Chopped fresh dill/1.5 teaspoons dried dill 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)

1 Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
2 Meanwhile, in a food processor, puree the cottage cheese and yogurt until smooth. Add the mozzarella, Parmesan and lemon zest (if using), and process to blend.
3 Thinly slice the carrots.
4 In a medium saucepan, combine the chicken broth, 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice and the pepper. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the carrots, reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer until the carrots are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
