    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.
     
  2. Almonds and cashews are good for adding creaminess if you don't have cream.

    What sort of amounts? I assume ground?
     
  4. Either ground almonds or cashews that have been soaked for a few hours or overnight to soften. I always blitz my soups with a hand blender anyway so the nuts blend in. I don't know about amounts, just throw in a handful or whatever you have available. Good luck.

    Is the point of this - adding vegetables to the basic hummus recipe - to lower the carbs?
     
  6. Yes, less carbs. I was surprised at how much the marrow version tasted like hummus. It is the tahini which gives hummus its taste not the chickpeas. Saying that, I do like chickpeas and (fortunately) they like me.

    Must try it. I used to regularly eat hummus but it's dropped off the shopping list with the switch to low carbs, I shall experiment!

    I've just joined so sorry if I'm asking an obvious question. I'm looking for a low carb vegetarian cook book. Any ideas? Thanks.

    There are plenty vegetarians on the site here, and their food looks fab, speaking from a non-veggie perspective. The link @Brunneria posted is great, and I'd also watch out for @Avocado Sevenfold , whose food I could always hoover up. She's a wealth of knowledge.

    If you're looking for something in particular, I find google is great; just searching on "low carb whatever".

    Enjoy!

  10. Hiya. There are only a few on the market that I know off.

    Rose Elliot - I don't find it very inspiring tbh.

    Celia Brooks - nice book, but not what I would eat every day. A bit fancy imo.

    I have just noticed this one on Amazon that came out last month https://www.amazon.co.uk/Low-Carb-D...483535598&sr=8-7&keywords=LOW+CARB+VEGETARIAN

    The first recipe is for maple granola...oats, raisins, maple syrup...That breakfast would land me in bed for the rest of the day! :dead:

    If you are looking for recipes for yourself rather than a book for a gift, I would suggest starting your own folder and adding to it every time you see anything you fancy. There is a lot out there so you will soon have a folder the size of an Argos catalogue, trust me :)

    Sweet pototato in boiling water is good
