Vegan Coconut Bacon

This is inspired. Lately I’ve been doing many more brunch style canapés. I love these canapé jobs. This week, I am topping mini waffles with a homemade maple butter and sprinkling them with this wonderful umami coconut ‘bacon’. With veganism taking off, packing flavour into my food is my number one priority. These take just a few minutes to make and can spice up everything and anything…

Watermelon Rind Pickles

I love this time of year for so many reasons, but the unmissable abundance of watermelon in my grocers and the supermarkets are a joy to behold.   Once you have slurped your way through the delicious pink flesh, you are left with the white rind which most of us tend to throw away. Please please don’t. Make these pickles – ready in about a week and…

Flourless Oat Pancakes with Sugar Free Salted Caramel

Imagine porridge, but packed with protein. This isn’t my usual grain free, low carb breakfast as it contains oats, BUT for those who can handle a few carbs here and there and especially for kids, this is a wonderful recipe. It’s what I feed my daughter for breakfast at least a couple of days a week. Even on school days. It’s quick and so much better than…

Cauliflower Houmous

I miss houmous. I can’t really eat chick peas, I do have them from time to time but I suffer from slightly swollen eyes and lips and an itchy throat when I do. I actually have an allergy to all legumes. Haricot beans are the worst. It’s annoying. But if you follow a ketogenic diet or paleo or are just trying to be low carb, starchy legumes…

Lamb Koftas

These are wonderful. If you don’t put too much chilli in them, kids will love them too. Personally, I’d keep them all to myself and double the chilli (and garlic!). You can use beef instead of lamb if that’s all you have.   Makes about 10 large koftas. Ingredients: 400-500g lamb mince (you could also use beef) 3 cloves garlic – crushed ½ onion finely diced (or grated or lazily…

Low Carb Chocolate Mug Cake Sometimes, you need a quick satisfying fix. This takes just a minute. 30g Unsalted Butter 3 tsp Xylitol or Stevia Sweet Crystal– (my tooth might be less sweet than most, you can drop to 1-2 tsp in a few weeks if you feel the need, start with this amount though) if you are using a stevia based sweetener, make sure you don’t put too much…

Salmon & Spinach Tart with Low Carb Pie Crust

I love a tart. Pastry and my tummy don’t get on too well. I’m not coeliac, I just don’t feel great after eating flour. So pastry – although I make it often for clients, has had to change. I am a low carb convert. I fall off the wagon occasionally but I reckon I’m 90% there with food that makes me feel wonderful inside and out. The first time I…
