    Re: Best Basic Low Carb Cheesecake

    I just made a cheesecake yesterday but the traditional way with a sweetmeal biscuit base. This alternative looks great so I'll give it a try.

    I've not heard of the sweetner product. Where can I get it from?

    Thanks

    Re: Mercy's Mexican Fudge

    Sounds nice - and the kind of thing that can be frozen in batches and defrosted as needed.

    Re: Low Carb Recipes.

    I just made this. Its yummy. A bit too much onion for me though so I might try adding more cheese and maybe throw in some tomatoes instead. Or chicken.

    Quick meal

    Courgette Ragout:

    4 courgettes, thinly sliced or grated (not too fine)
    1 pepper, thinly sliced
    2 onions, finely chopped
    5 cloves of garlic, crushed
    300ml coconut milk
    salt, pepper, 2 Tbsp curry powder
    Butter or ghee

    Melt butter or ghee, fry onions and garlic, medium heat till golden, add courgettes, pepper and seasoning, sautee for 10mins or so, add coconut milk, adjust seasoning.

    We had this with low carb, very meaty sausages and a slice of buttered low carb bread that I bake myself.
    Non-low carbers enjoyed this meal just the same, so nothing extra to cook to cater for the "other side" of my lovely family :D

    Low Carb 'Bread'

    I made this the other day, It tastes really good, very filling but is high in calories.

    40 grams flax seed powder
    40 grams ground almonds
    pinch of salt
    1 teaspoon of baking powder
    1 medium egg
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 tablespoon milk

    Put dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

    Beat egg and add to mixture with oil and milk.

    Mix well, if it is too stiff add a little more milk.

    Grease a small microwaveable bowl and add mixture.

    Level on top.

    Place in microwave and cook on full power for 1 minute.

    It should be springy on top. If not cook 10 seconds at a time.

    Don't overcook.

    Eat while very fresh - even still warm. I could only eat half of it - a whole one is 623 calories, 15 grams of carbs, 14 grams of fibre. I used an American site to work out the details so it is 1 gram net carbs

    Another low carb bread

    http://www.lowcarbcooking.co.nz/index.p ... &Itemid=56

    I have made this for the first time this morning, its delicious, a slice of fried bread with eggs and bacon, divine is all I can say.

    LSA = a mixture of finely ground golden flaxseed, sunflower seed and almonds, NZers can buy this ready made, I ground mine in the coffee grinder.

    Wish there was such a thing as low carb baked beans though, just one tablespoon of baked beans brought on a spike from 5.3 to 9.1 :cry:

    :D Hi people, I got a recipe for Cauliflower tortilla chips of this forum - posted by Patch a while back. Been trying to make them. Cut everything to one third because there is only me. Tried to do this twice now, I am really going wrong somewhere. The mixture just will not go thin enough to make tortilla chips from. Do I need to blitz it in a blender to make a paste thin enough ? I think the thread was - using nuts for snacks at night. Which led to other snacks, this being one of them. If you see this Patch, help !! I still want to try them. So far I have had two cauliflower and cheese omellettes. :lol: :lol:

    Mexican Ham Rolls

    The weather is not so nice, but we sat in our conservatory feasting on Mexican Rolls, we felt as if we were on holiday.

    Lovely served with a glass of wine, slice of buttered low carb bread.

    More Bread

    I got myself a second hand breadmaker from ebay, cost me just £7, was dying to try out these bread recipes.
    Oh my, I am in heaven, cant believe that I am eating all this food yet my weight is stable.


    http://www.lowcarbcooking.co.nz/index.p ... &Itemid=56

    http://www.lowcarbcooking.co.nz/index.p ... &Itemid=56

    Note: the only ingredient not available in the UK is the LSA flour, I emailed the manufacturer of this and it turns out its L(inseed) S(unflower seed) A(lmonds) - so a mixture of those finely ground.
    You do that in a coffee grinder, again I got mine from ebay, I am a cheapskate alright.

    I also have a recipe for a multiseed loaf:

    150g Mascarpone or Creme Fraiche or Philadelphia
    4 eggs
    90g linseeds, I preferr golden linseeds, they are nuttier I think
    1tbsp almond flour
    1tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt, caraway seeds
    40g sunflower seeds
    10g sesame or sunflower or pumpkin seeds
    70g Butter, softened

    Mix all ingredients really well together, you dont need a mixer, just stir with a wooden spoon. Fill into a lined baking tin, or better still use one of those silicon bakeware thingies. Sprinkle with extra seeds of your choice if liked.
    Bake in the oven for 45-60 minutes, fan assisted 150C or 165C without fan.

    I sometimes use garlic and herb philadelphia or add sliced olives or sundried tomatoes, or add fennel or anis seeds, so play around with it.
    Delicious spread with butter and topped with fresh finely chopped herbs, sprinkling of salt.

    And another white bread:
    2 eggs
    160g low fat soft cheese or low fat curd cheese (smooth) drain off the whey
    100g almond flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tbsp locust bean gum
    Salt

    Mix all ingredients together really well, bake in a 20cm loaf tin or silicon dish (I tend to make double quantity to give me bigger slices)
    Bake in preheated oven at 180C for 30-35 mins.

    Again if you want to add herbs or anything else, just play around with the recipe, experiment.

    I once ran out of gluten powder, used Xanthan Gum instead and it turned out ok too.

    Its lovely lightly toasted under the grill spread with butter and sprinkled with splenda and cinnamon.


    Tip: to make lining a tin easier, wet the greaseproof paper, scrumple it up into a ball, then smooth it out, so much easier than faffing around with slippery dry greaseproof paper.

    Iced chocolates

    Iced chocolate

    You will need:

    100 g of coconut oil
    1 cup (30g) desiccated coconut
    1 tablespoon cocoa
    1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
    30 Confectionary foil cups or similar


    Melt the coconut, add the remaining ingredients and stir. Divide mixture between 30 foil cups.. Garnish with a little coconut.


    Chill in the fridge or freezer until set and dont eat them all at once. I place mine in the freezer, these little chocs will melt slowly on your tongue, very decadent, tiny amount of carbs.

    Here is a link so you can see what they look like

    Almost Bounty Bars

    These have proved to be very popular with family and friends

    Ingredients:
    100ml Zsweet or sweetener of your choice (taste the mixture)
    50 g coconut oil
    100ml double cream
    100ml coconut milk (preferably organic coconut milk from Blue Dragon because of the low carbohydrate value)
    200 g desiccated coconut
    100 g of chocolate with high cocoa content (> 70%) Lidl's is good for this


    Carefully, in a saucepan, melt coconut and sweetener..
    Add the coconut milk, cream, grated coconut and let it simmer.
    Stir well and leave in the fridge for about an hour.
    Shape the mixture into 12-14 square-like pieces.
    Put the pieces in the freezer and leave for one hour.
    Carefully melt the chocolate in the microwave.
    Dip the coconut bars in the melted chocolate.
    Place in the freezer to cool, then store in the fridge.

    The almost bounty bars and iced chocolate sound magnificent. Have you got the nutritional breakdown Whitby Jet? You posted a link but I hate to admit I don't speak Martian! Isn't dessicated coconut high in carbs? I'd still give it a go, but would like to know what I'm letting myself in for

    :lol: Martian :lol: - you cheeky :!:

    Actually Swedish language
    coconut oil = 0 carbs
    cream = 3 carbs
    coconut milk =3.5 carbs
    shredded coconut = 6.8 carbs
    72% chocolate = 34 carbs
    sweetener = 0 carbs

    Total carbs = 47.3

    I hope this is helpful

    Sounds fantastic Whitby! 47 carbs sounds a lot, but I guess it's spread over quite a large quantity?
    You break it into 12 to 14 bits which is say 4grams a bit - is each bit a fair sized chunk?
    Answer quick! I'm on the way to the kitchen!
