    I've not long joined this forum and have just come across this thread! Eeekk... I'm so excited to get going on some of these recipes and planning meals. I move in with my OH in just over a week, so was going to be planning meals anyway. He is slowly turning veggie (yay!) and wants to lose weight, so these will be perfect for us both! Thank you so much for putting this together @purplekat xxx

    This sounds awesome. I have yet to meet an avocado I don't like. I always think of blending it but I just love my guac breakfast. I do mix my guac with turkey and green beans and mushrooms but I never blended it. I also haven't met any broccoli I don't like but roasted is always my fav

    Not authentic but very nice nonetheless :)

    LOW CARB VEGETARIAN OKONOMIYAKI
    (Japanese Savoury Pancakes/Omelettes)

    Makes 10 - 12 pikelet sized okonomiyaki

    INGREDIENTS
    320gms chopped green cabbage
    200gm grated or spiralised & chopped zucchini
    100 gm grated carrot
    4 spring onions, thinly sliced
    110gm almond meal
    2 TBS (20ml) coconut flour mixed with 1/2 tsp baking powder
    6 eggs
    2 TBS (20ml) tamari
    2 TBS (20ml) sesame oil
    2 TBS (20ml) sweet chilli sauce (I used chipotle sauce with a few drops of stevia)
    Cooking oil of choice

    Avocado mashed with wasabi & mayo to serve

    METHOD
    Add oil to frypan & bring to a medium heat.

    Beat the eggs with the tamari, sesame oil & chilli sauce.

    Add the almond meal & coconut flour/baking powder to eggs stir to combine.

    Add the vegetables & mix well.

    Panfry pikelet sized amounts (lets say a scant quarter cup or scant ladles worth) until bubbles appear & underside is lightly browned. Gently flip & cook the others side.

    Original recipe from here http://food.ninemsn.com.au/recipes/icabbage/9017097/low-carb-japanese-pancakes

    Made a couple of changes but nothing too drastic. Added carrot (cause I like it) & also some coconut flour/baking powder as the eggs I used were rather large & the mixture a little tricky to work with.

    Made these little lovelies largely because I had some leftover ricotta that needed using - they were better than the recipe I had originally needed the ricotta for :) Subbed vintage cheddar for the parmesan but may try haloumi next time. Also added only a pinch of salt (versus the 1 tsp called for in original recipe). They are very delicate & a bit tricky to turn in the pan but oh so worth it.

    I'll admit to not liking green tea ... and when I first read this I immediately thought, use as lavaotory cleaner?

    I regularly use this list of ingredients without the eggs and cheese for a vegetable dish cooked on the top of the stove - nice with a portion of broad beans.

    Any recommendations for a low-carb soup?
     
  14. My favourites soups are

    mushroom
    celery and celeriac
    tomato and basil

    Maybe have a quick google to find a recipe that suits your preferred carbiness and creaminess.

    I tend to just make up soups according to what vegetables are available - but because I don't usually have cream in the fridge, I'd completely forgotten about it as a possible ingredient! Thanks for the reminder.
     
  16. Almonds and cashews are good for adding creaminess if you don't have cream.
