    Brie and Caramelized Onion Stuffed Burgers
    Yield: 6 large burgers

    Ingredients

    Onions:
    2 tbsp olive oil
    1 large onion, thinly sliced
    1/2 tsp salt
    Burgers:
    2 lbs ground beef
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp ground pepper
    4 oz Brie cheese, cut into small pieces
    Mushrooms:
    2 tbsp butter
    8 oz mushrooms, sliced
    Pinch salt
    Instructions

    To caramelize the onions, heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium low heat. Once hot, add onions and sprinkle with salt.
    Cook slowly, stirring frequently, until a caramel brown colour and soft, about 15 to 20 minutes. Do not let them get crispy. Reduce heat if necessary to keep them from burning or crisping.
    Keep saute pan for cooking mushrooms.
    For the burgers, combine beef, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Mix by hand to combine well and divide into 6 even portions.
    Take half of each portion and form into a thin patty. Top each thin patty with some of the brie and onions, then top with remaining half of each portion and form around cheese and onions, into one large patty.
    Cook burgers on pre-heated grill about 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium. Cook slightly less for medium-rare and slightly more for medium-well. Meat should register at least 125°F (50°C) to 130°F (55°C) on an instant-read thermometer. Remove from grill and let sit 5 minutes.
    Cook mushrooms while burgers are grilling. Add butter to saute pan and melt over medium heat. Add mushrooms and a little salt and saute until mushrooms are browned on both sides and tender.
    Layer mushrooms over cooked burgers and serve.
    Notes

    Serves 6. Each serving has 3.3 g of carbs and .8 g of fiber. Total NET CARBS = 2.5 g.

    Using your hands, form little patties.
    Heat the olive oil in a frying pan on a medium heat.

    These are lovely instead of roast potatoes, but I added an egg to help them keep their shape.
    You can also add corned beef to make them into corned beef hash, with a fried egg on top and a salad on the side makes a lovely meal

    Spinach and Feta Garlic Rolls

    Dough:
    2 cups carbalose flour
    1/3 cup vital wheat gluten
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 cup whole milk, lukewarm (about 110F)
    1/2 cup water, lukewarm (abut 110F)
    1 package rapid rise yeast
    1 large egg, lightly beaten

    Filling:
    1 12 oz package frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed of excess moisture
    1 cup crumbled feta cheese
    1/2 tsp marjoram
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

    Garlic Butter:
    2 tbsp butter, softened
    2 cloves garlic, pressed

    Preheat oven to 200F for 10 minutes and then turn oven off.

    In a medium bowl, stir together carbalose flour, gluten flour and salt. Set aside

    In the bowl of your mixer, combine milk and water. Sprinkle yeast over and mix well. Mix in egg until combined.

    With the mixer on low speed, slowly add flour mixture until combined. Dough may be quite sticky, but do not add any more flour.

    With greased hands, shape dough into a smooth ball and place in a lightly greased bowl. Cover tightly with plastic wrap. Place in warm oven for 30-45 minutes, or until doubled in size.

    Meanwhile, combine spinach, feta, marjoram, salt and pepper together in a medium bowl.

    Roll out dough on a lightly greased surface into a rough rectangle, 12 x 16 inches or so. Spread spinach mixture over dough, leaving a 1/2 inch border around all edges. Starting at a longer side, roll up dough tightly into a log and pinch to seal the edge.

    Cut log into 16 equal portions and place on a silpat or parchment-lined baking sheet (I found the cutting to be easiest with a serrated knife and a sawing motion. The fibrous spinach did not cut well with thread). Put back into warm oven and let rise until doubled, about 20 to 30 more minutes.

    Remove from oven and increase heat to 375F. In a small bowl, combine butter and garlic and brush over the top of each roll. Once oven is preheated, bake rolls 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

    Serves 16. Each roll has a total of 8.2 g of carbs and 3.6 g of fiber, so net carbs equals 4.6 g.

    Lime and coconut mousse

    1 packet Jelly crystals, sugar-free lime
    ¾ cup Water, boiling
    1¼ cups Coconut cream
    3 Eggs, whites
    6 Strawberries, sliced
    ½ cup Pineapple, diced
    ¼ cup Blueberries


    Dissolve jelly crystals into boiling water. Stir until completely dissolved, then stir in the lite coconut cream.
    Set over ice and stir with a spatula for several minutes until quite cold, but not quite setting. Discard the ice.
    Whisk egg whites to a near firm peak and fold into the setting lime jelly mixture.
    Spoon about half a cup of lime jelly into four glasses, then refrigerate to completely set.
    When ready to serve, mix the fruit together and top each mousse with a heaped spoonful.
    Cook's tip: This recipe also works well with other sugar-free jelly flavours like orange, lemon or blueberry.

    Chicken in green curry with lime and bok choy

    Chicken in green curry with lime and bok choy

    For 4 people

    1 stalk lemon grass - the white tender part, finely chopped

    Juice and zest of 2 limes

    1 can coconut milk

    rapeseed oil or coconut oil

    1/2 - 1 red chili, deseeded - minced

    2 red peppers

    approx. 30 grams of fresh ginger - peeled and finely chopped / grated

    4 lime leaves

    1 tablespoon green currypaste

    4-6 bok choy

    6 chicken portions

    2 cloves garlic - minced
    ___________________________________________________________________________

    Heat oil, brown the chicken pieces on all sides. Add lemon grass, chili, ginger, lime leaves, garlic and curry paste to the pan and fry for a couple of minutes, stirring all the time, be careful not to burn the spice mixture or else you will end up with a very bitter sauce.
    Add the coconut milk and bring to boil. Turn down the heat and simmer for about 40 - 45 minutes until chicken is done. Season with lime juice and finely grated lime peel.

    Cut the peppers into slices, cut the pak choy lengthways into halves, add vegetables to the pan and simmer until bok choy has wilted and warmed through.

    **If you cannot get hold of bok choy you can use Chinese leaf cabbage or spinach instead.

    Wonderful breakfast rolls

    Wonderful breakfast rolls, these are truly amazing, use as sandwich rolls for your packed lunches, bacon sandwich in the mornings, eat with soups.

    Ingredients:
    2 eggs
    150ml whipping cream
    300ml almond flour
    2 tbsp finely ground psyllium husks
    50ml ground flaxseeds
    1 tsp salt
    2 tsp baking powder
    0.5 to 1 pinch bread spice (I used ground coriander)
    Sesame seeds (for topping)

    Heat oven to 175 degress
    Beat eggs until foamy, add in the whipping cream, add all dry ingredients, mix well.
    Leave the batter to thicken for a few minutes, if its too runny add a little more psyllium husks.
    Using a spoon place in little mounds on a lined and greased baking tray, shape into rolls and sprinkle with sesame seed or poppy seed is nice as well.
    Bake in the middle of the oven for 20 - 25 minutes.

    Best stored in a freezerbag in the fridge if you dont eat them all in one go.

    I had to pop to Sainsburys at lunchtime today, and came across a tin of Baxters Luxury Soup - Beef Consume. It only has 2g of carbs for the whole tin!! :D. So, tonight I made up some almond flour pancakes and had the whole tim to myself!! It's a thin soup, but made with sherry and has a really good flavour. So, if anyone wants to try a quick meal.....

    Hi, in need of some advice, been to the doctors following some blood tests a few weeks ago. Been told I cannot have any dairy products at all, no wheat, no gluten, no nuts and no eggs what so ever as I have an allergy to them, but am following a low carbohydrate diet to control my diabetes, what can I use to substitute the eggs in some of these lovely recipes please.

    Goats products is out of the question as well, as when tried I ended up in hospital.

    Goodness, life must be awkward for you, I am so sorry.
    Have been racking my braincells (the few that I have) on how I can possibly try to help you, so here goes:

    Egg substitutes:
    Allergy Care Vegan Whole egg replacer by Lifestyle Healthcare Ltd www.gfdiet.com buy from Goodness Direct - http://www.goodnessdirect.co.uk/cgi-loc ... _200g.html

    Orgran No Egg (Egg Replacer) - info >> www.orgran.com available from health food shops and Goodness Direct http://www.goodnessdirect.co.uk/cgi-loc ... eggs_.html

    And these two are available on prescription (I think):
    Loprofin Egg White Replacer or Loprofin Low Protein Egg Replacer
    Ener-G Egg Replacer made by General Dietary Ltd
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Are you ok with soya and coconut products, am thinking of soya milk and cream, etc, also can you eat vegan 'cheeses', although you cant really cook with them as they dont melt very well, but still they are ok grated and sprinkled over dishes, eg I had some not so long ago = shirataki noodles, with home made (nutfree) pesto and grated cheese.

    Plenty of meat and veggie recipes will be suitable, low carb baking is a problem, flour is high carb, since you cannot have any of the nut flours, hmmmm what about coconut flour, some buckwheat or soy flour?

    Thank you Whitby Jet. I shall investigate these links further. I haven't tried Soya yet. I was getting used to life without dairy at all, and hubby just needs to try it for me with cooking, as he cooks all my food separately. A really big thank you though.

    It is always been great to read such thread. The recipes with herbal remedies and containing low fats and sugar. This is one of the best thing what I always looks to maintaining good health.
