Low Carb Recipes

Discussion in 'Low-carb Diet Forum' started by sugarless sue, Nov 16, 2008.

  1. @Safi Those look amazing! :hungry: I will give these a try by subbing the parmesan and the odd ingredients that I haven't heard of. I was gifted a cauliflower yesterday so this will be a great use for it, thank you. (Yes, I was given a cauli by a friend lol)

    My first foray into low carb recipes - I'm newish to LCHF (certainly to taking it seriously I have to admit) and I'm a sad old foodie which doesn't help. However, discovered this squash parmigiana recipe on Delicious and I have to say that although it looks quite meagre when you're cooking it it's ultra rich and ultra delicious! I halved the recipe amount as we are only three, and it was plenty....

    you can find it here

    Thanks @ChilliGal I will be giving it a go. It is certainly hard to break old habits but once you find some great recipes you are away.

    Just seen someone on TV making a cranberry and orange zest mayonnaise.
    How fab does that sound?
    There was no recipe, but he was using the standard handblender mayo recipe, with added orange zest and about a tablespoon of dried cranberries tipped in.

    (This vid is for alioli, but just leave out the garlic and replace with the zest and cranberries. I would probably add a smidge of mustard powder too, to help with the emulsification)

    Good morning,
    I'm so glad I've found this Forum and all you clever people. I enjoy cooking and am only 2.1/2 weeks into the low carb followers, so this a great find for me. I expect I'll be hours browsing through these recipes and won't know where to start. I'm thinking the Eggplant lasagne, cos I've got mincemeat in freezer and loads of cheese - going out to buy an aubergine later. Thank you all.

    If you are looking for something sweet, I made these peanut butter fudge bars yesterday and think they are yummy! http://www.ruled.me/keto-peanut-butter-fudge-bars/ Makes 8 bars but you could easily make them smaller. 3.3g carbs per bar if divided into 8.

    Low Carb Microwave Muffins

    Copied from two of my posts in a thread elsewhere on the forum, as I felt it ought to be part of this thread.:

    I investigated (via Google) muffins in a mug and one minute (microwave) muffins when I first started low carbing, and came up with my own version - I more or less doubled up the ingredients and I cook them in 7 or 8 silicone (large/9cm) muffin cases in the microwave for 2.5-3 minutes, and they last up to a week in the fridge. Once you've got the hang of them, the ingredients and additions can be varied to suit your tastes, and I make a variety of both sweet and savoury ones. Without the addition of eggs and raising agent some variations can make nice little biscuits/cookies too, which are super fast to do. My muffins are now one of my staple low carb foods, one of my favourite in both versions being chocolate hazelnut.

    The basic mix is very versatile as you can add pretty much what you fancy to vary the flavours. Years ago when I was teaching myself to cook I actually learned this technique from one of my very first cookery books which gave basic recipes for cakes, sauces, etc, and then gave tables of extra ingredients you could add.

    Basic ingredients:
    (Approx) 200g of ground almonds
    or 200g ground hazelnuts
    or mixture of (golden) flax seed, and ground almonds or sesame flour (about 60/40 proportion wise)
    (Approx) 75g softened butter
    3 eggs
    1-1.5 teasp baking powder

    According to what I fancy baking sweet or savoury wise I add a selection from:
    Sukrin gold or other low carb sweetener to taste
    2-3 teasp cocoa powder
    cinnamon
    blueberries
    vanilla essence
    chocolate extract
    orange extract
    a little diluted ground coffee or coffee flavouring
    chopped nuts
    grated baby carrots
    grated courgettes
    grated parmesan and/or cheddar
    teasp paprika
    teasp mustard powder
    salt, pepper
    olives
    herbs, fresh or dried

    Mix dry ingredients, add butter and beaten eggs and blend well
    fill muffin cases and microwave for 2.5-3 mins until done - cocktail stick poked into middle comes out clean. Cool on
    cake rack.

    As I said in previous post I use 9cm muffin cases and depending on how I fill them I usually get 7-8 large muffins. I keep them in closed containers in fridge, but usually add a piece of kitchen roll on top to absorb any excess moisture.

    Cookies - I cook in microwave on a silicon baking mat with greaseproof paper on top. Roll into between 7 and 10 little balls, flatten tops slightly with fork. They may do better if they're chilled in the fridge before cooking as they end to spread a bit. Cook for 2.5-3 mins or until done. Slide the greaseproof and cookies off the silicon mat, place them on cake rack and cool well as they can be rather fragile/crumbly until properly set.

    So for example:

    Chocolate muffins:
    butter, eggs, baking powder
    ground hazelnuts
    cocoa
    cinnamon
    Sukrin Gold
    maybe some nutmeg, chocolate and/or orange extract
    and possibly a piece of melted 85% dark chocolate ( thanks to Scandichic's choc muffin recipe)

    For blueberry muffins
    butter, eggs, baking powder
    ground almonds
    Sukrin
    maybe vanilla essence
    blueberries

    For coffee and walnut muffins:

    butter, eggs, baking powder
    ground almonds, or possibly sesame flour (I haven't yet tried with this)
    Sukrin
    fairly finely chopped or crushed walnuts
    dissolved coffee and maybe a bit of coffee flavouring

    For carrot cake:
    butter, eggs, baking powder
    ground almonds
    Sukrin Gold
    grated carrots
    finely chopped pecans
    nutmeg
    cinnamon

    For savoury courgette muffins:

    butter, eggs
    flax seed and sesame flour mix
    grated courgettes, finely chopped walnut, or some whole pine nuts
    grated cheese
    salt, pepper

    For savoury cheese muffins:
    as above but omit courgettes and nuts
    and add paprika and mustard

    For cookies omit the eggs and baking powder and possibly reduce quantity of butter slightly - these are mixed and
    rolled into little balls for cooking. You can also use cool chopped butter and just mix until crumbly to make crumble
    toppings for fruit - my favourite is hazelnut choc crumble with blackberries and apple.

    Almond cookies/ shortcake:
    butter (not too soft for this!)
    ground almonds
    Sukrin
    vanilla essence

    For chocolate cookies:
    butter( not too soft for this!)
    ground hazelnuts
    Sukrin
    cocoa powder
    cinnamon
    and maybe a little vanilla essence, choc essence, or ground nutmeg

    .... You get the general idea!
