Low Carb Cucumber Lime Mignonette

Low Carb Cucumber Lime MignonetteLow Carb Cucumber Lime MignonetteLow Carb Cucumber Lime MignonetteLow Carb Cucumber Lime MignonetteLow Carb Cucumber Lime Mignonette.  This low carb Cucumber Lime Mignonette is good with pretty much any seafood.  If you like raw oysters, and I do, it is perfect doused on them.  The second time I made it, and when I was sure I liked the balance, I did it with a flash-fried calamari steak, hence the picture.  I know it’s good on shrimp but I didn’t take pictures so the next time….and now done.  I most often do not eat oysters at home as they are such a treat on the rare occasion that I eat out, but I will now buy some soon, just to pig out on them.  I have had some really good mignonettes and I have also had some pretty tasteless ones so you will have to decide which you think this is.  There’s a Bonus:  It also makes a fabulous salad dressing with the addition of olive oil.  You can’t see much of it but you sure will taste it.

Low Carb Garlic Mint Snow Peas

Low Carb Garlic Mint Snow PeasLow Carb Garlic Mint Snow PeasLow Carb Garlic Mint Snow Peas.  These could not be much easier but they do pack a great flavor punch and slivered on the diagonal they cook very quickly.  I left these plain Jane but with the addition of a number of things you can change the flavor significantly.  Add a splash of tamari or fish sauce or maybe just something you have and like.  And if you happen to have Pili Nuts they are a great replacement for pine nuts with the same buttery high fat content.

Low Carb Red Pepper Walnut Relish

Low Carb Red Pepper Walnut RelishLow Carb Red Pepper Walnut RelishLow Carb Red Pepper Walnut Relish.  Muhammara In Arabic, and this is the 2nd recipe I am posting using Aleppo Pepper Paste and also where I will attempt to explain it a bit more than in the Yogurt Walnut Dip.  Originally, Aleppo Peppers were grown and came from Aleppo, Syria and the picture on the right is a true pepper.

In Syria, with hundreds of thousands dead and livelihoods destroyed by the conflict, the loss of a spice might not seem like a big deal, but it’s not just a flavor, it’s history. “The Syrians are so accustomed to conflict, and at the same time so determined to maintain their traditions, they create spaces in their homes where they keep supplies. Most households retain a small supply of seeds, too.”  You can get what is call Aleppo pepper but it is not coming from Aleppo and almost certainly not even from Syria.  They are now mostly grown in Turkey and you know how it works.  They are going to probably crossbreed on their own (peppers tend to do that) and flavors will change depending on the soil they are grown in.

The Aleppo pepper has a moderate heat level of about 10,000 on the Scoville scale, with some fruitiness and mild, cumin-like undertones. Its flavor is similar to the ancho chile, but oilier and slightly salty as salt is often used in the drying process which I explained elsewhere and yes, don’t not make this because you don’t have access to a Middle-Eastern market.  Ancho chili powder makes a good stand-in with a near Scoville heat of a mildish jalapeno pepper. If you belong to Amazon you can get it there and also through Penzey’s Spices.

See Note Below:  I just bought some ancho chile powder, made a paste with it and whoa, it is pretty spicy so if you end up using it, try using only ½ T to begin with, taste, and add more if wanted.  You will need bread crumbs made from the Low Carb Carbalose Bread recipe and if you have never made it, now may be the time.  Nutritionals do include bread crumbs.

Red Pepper Walnut Relish
Print
Ingredients
  1. 1 C Toasted Then Ground Walnuts
  2. ½ C Carbalose Bread Crumbs
  3. 2 T Red Pepper Paste (Or Equivalent)
  4. 1½ T Lemon Juice
  5. 1½ T Olive Oil
  6. 1 T Just Like Sugar Brown***
  7. 1 t Balsamic Vinegar
  8. ¾ t Cumin
  9. ¼ t Paprika
  10. ¼ T Salt
  11. 1 T Olive Oil (For Drizzling)
  12. ½ T Toasted Pine Nuts (Garnish)
  13. Assorted Low Carb Veggies
Instructions
  1. Toast and cool walnuts.
  2. Put first 10 ingredients into your processor and grind until fine and turns into a stiff mix. If it needs more olive oil drizzle more a bit at a time until desired consistency is reached.
  3. Press onto plate or into serving dish, drizzle with more olive oil and garnish with pine nuts.
  4. Serve with veggies and a small spreading knife.

  6. 262 Calories, 6.3g Protein, 24.7g Fat, 8.1g Carbs, 3.9g Fiber, 4.2g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. I wish you could have seen the two of us in the kitchen making this relish. I wanted to do it, scratch out the recipe on paper, and it was a little of this and a little of that until I finally got it. She is just as meticulous and picky about her food and I am about mine and she had zero problems correcting me. Whatever happened to respect for the elderly?
  2. If you end up using ancho powder add a little water & oil to make a paste and you can buy the paste-just make sure it does not have garlic in. I don’t have the paste (but then again I have the real deal) and apparently you can use it in all kinds of stuff.
  3. Nutritionals include bread crumbs.
  4. I don't think there is really any good substitute for red pepper paste. The ancho will give you the heat but not the flavor.

Low Carb Yogurt Walnut Dip

Low Carb Yogurt Walnut DipLow Carb Yogurt Walnut DipLow Carb Yogurt Walnut DipLow Carb Yogurt Walnut DipLow Carb Yogurt Walnut Dip. Another Middle Eastern food dish at its best. A friend from Dubai was staying with me for several weeks. One day we got in the kitchen and made 3 dishes and this low carb yogurt walnut dip was one of them.  In the Middle East it is customary to eat communally and not uncommon for there to be many smaller dishes in which everyone at the table gets only 2-3-4 bites of 7-8-9 different foods.  It is an absolutely lovely way to eat and…you get to taste many foods at one sitting.  Each woman is complimented on not only how good the food tastes but how beautifully it is decorated.  The plate was a gift and I am now using it a lot.  My first thought when I saw it was; holy smokes, it has such a busy pattern you won’t be able to see the food.  You can see what a dufus I am. Not only does the food look great, it is enhanced by the plate and seriously how in heaven’s name would I know more than centuries of women before me. Duh.  The one slice of bread is a piece of my Low Carb Carbalose Bread.  I was out of my own Low Carb Yogurt the day I made this and which is why I used the labne.

It is also customary to have more food than the numbers of people are able to eat so you can imagine the leftovers which…are eaten the following morning and then into the next meal and so it goes, on and on.  The people are incensed when there is not enough food so I guess as they say;: Better Safe Than Sorry.  Not our custom here in the US but, I don’t think we necessarily have a corner on anything.

The ingredients are simple and the taste is complex.  That pepper sauce you see is Aleppo Pepper and…as this is already too long, its description is told in the Red Pepper Walnut Relish.

Walnut Yogurt Dip
Print
Ingredients
  1. ¾ C Full Fat Yogurt (Or Labne If You Can Get It)
  2. 6 T Toasted Small Chopped Walnuts (Divided)
  3. 2 T Aleppo Pepper Paste
  4. ¼ t Salt
  5. ⅛ t Crushed Garlic Paste***
  6. 2-3 T Olive Oil
Instructions
  1. Toast chopped walnuts.
  2. In medium bowl mix yogurt, red pepper paste, salt, garlic, and 5 T walnuts.
  3. Smear on serving plate and place last T walnuts in center.
  4. Drizzle generously with olive oil.
  5. Serve with plate of low carb veggies and bread if using.

Notes
  1. Please do take the time to toast the walnuts as it makes a huge difference in the end product.
  2. I doubt you have access to Aleppo Pepper Paste and a really good substitute is Ancho Chile Powder with a bit of salt. It has about the same heat profile (not hot).
  3. If you do end up with the chili powder add two parts powder to one part water or olive oil, mix, and allow to sit until it thickens. Include a bit more salt in the recipe as Aleppo pepper is dried with salt.
  4. Recipe easily doubles.

Low Carb Smoky Eggplant Dip

Low Carb Smoky Eggplant DipLow Carb Smoky Eggplant DipLow Carb Smoky Eggplant Dip.  We all pretty much know about the famous eggplant dip Baba Ganoush but this is a horse of a different color and just as healthy as its cousin.  Interesting in that it has many of the same components but tastes completely differently.  An eggplant dip would normally be smeared around on a plate and served with veggies and with pita or many of the specialty breads made in the Middle East.  I have shown it both with veggies and kalamata olives not only because they are traditional, but they are all also low carb. If you happen to make my Naan Flat Bread it is can also be another perfect low carb accompaniment.

Smoky Eggplant Dip
Print
Ingredients
  1. ½ C Baked Drained & Mashed Eggplant (About 1 Small)
  2. ½ C Labne (Sour Cream Or Yogurt Work Well Too)
  3. 2 T Lemon Juice
  4. 1 T Grated Shallot (Onion)
  5. ½ t Liquid Smoke
  6. ½ t Salt
  7. ¼ t Pepper
  8. ¼ t Crushed Garlic***
  9. 2-3 T Olive Oil For Drizzling
  10. 2 t Dried Mint (Garnish)
Instructions
  1. Bake, drain, and mash eggplant. Put into small bowl and mix in rest of ingredients except olive oil and mint.
  2. Put onto plate, drizzle with olive oil and garnish with mint.
  3. Serve vegetables, olives, and (bread) for scooping.
  4. 6 Servings
  5. 89 Calories, 1.0g Protein, 8.7g Fat, 2.8g Carbs, .7g Fiber, 2.1g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. To make this easier you can also buy jarred already cooked eggplant. A friend gave a large jar of it to me, I used it for this recipe, and I have to say it was quite good. I will probably use the rest of it for my eggplant soup.
  2. If using whole eggplant and once it is baked, I prop up the pan, split the eggplant on one side from top to bottom, let it cool a bit and then with a fork try to push out as much of the juice as I can.
  3. Recipe easily doubles.
  4. You can use minced onion instead of grated but you will not get the flavor or the smooth consistency it should have.
  5. I didn't want to overwhelm the look of the dish but I am positive, and if you have it, that za'atar would be spectacular sprinkled on the final plate.

Keto Walnut Pecan Tart

Keto Walnut Pecan TartKeto Walnut Pecan TartKeto Walnut Pecan TartKeto Walnut Pecan Tart.  WOWIE.  It has long been a dream of mine to make this keto walnut pecan tart and for many reasons it has not happened until now.  I lived at an altitude in excess of 10,000 in Colorado that simple would not permit it.  No matter what you did the filling would actually boil out of the shell you know, kind of like; a volcano. I have a cook book that I have had for a gazillion years which has a recipe for the Walnut Pecan Tart which I have made, but not for maybe 28-30 years and for sure not successfully.  My memory is that it was to die for and let’s face it we all have fears and mine was failing to make a recipe LCHF and keto for diabetics that would even work.  Then, I kinda forgot about it until a couple of weeks ago when I made a Basic Pie Crust just to have on hand and take fresh pictures of.  I stuck it in the freezer and then began stewing on how to maybe make that danged keto walnut pecan tart.  I did try to make a low carb pecan pie a couple of years ago using another low carb-keto blogger’s recipe that said to use glycerin and it was a disaster.  The glycerin jacked my blood sugar through the roof and I can assure you, this one does not and if you are diabetic I urge you to always check your blood sugar levels.  I subsequently questioned her about it, she left it up, and then many months later she finally changed the recipe but not before untold 1000’s of people had pinned and made it.  Sheesh.  I now have a sister recipe to this one called Keto Crack Pie  (yes, an homage to the famous Momofuko crack pie in NYC) and it is to die for.  Same crust, no nuts and tastes like a melt-in-your-mouth brown sugar pie.

Walnut Pecan Tart
Print
Smaller Crust 8”
  1. 1¾ C Almond Flour
  2. ½ C Ground Pecans
  3. 6 T Just Like Sugar Brown*** (Paleo)
  4. ½ C Melted Butter
Filling
  1. 2 Eggs
  2. ¾ C Just Like Sugar Brown***
  3. ½ C Melted Butter
  4. ¼ C SugarFree Maple Syrup***
  5. 2 T Heavy Cream
  6. 1 t Vanilla Extract
  7. 2 T Brandy (Optional)
  8. ½ C Chopped Walnuts
  9. ½ C Chopped Pecans
Crust
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Put almond flour into a medium bowl.
  3. In a small processor add pecans and Just Like Sugar Brown and process until pecans are ground.
  4. Add pecan mixture to almond flour and mix in melted butter.
  5. Mix all ingredients and press into an 8"x1¼” removable bottom cake pan, a corresponding sized spring-form pan or even a 9" glass pie dish.
  6. Blind bake crust 12-15 minutes and then “tamp down” as it will puff up. Return to oven for about 5-10 additional minutes or until it starts to turn just ever so slightly brown. If it has puffed up again knock it back down.
  7. Leave oven on.
Filling
  1. In order add and mix: Eggs, syrup, melted butter, and vanilla to a medium bowl & beat until smooth. Add heavy cream and brandy, if using, and mix thoroughly.
  2. Beat in Just Like Sugar 3 T at a time until smooth.
  3. Fold in nuts, pour into pie shell, and bake for 25-30 minutes. Tart will puff up and then fall when removed from the oven and should just giggle a little in the center.
  4. Put on rack and cool completely.
  5. For the very best results cover and refrigerate for at least 4-5 hours as the tart will get really thick just like any other pecan pie.
  6. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
  7. 10 Servings
  8. 415 Calories, 7.3g Protein, 42.2g Fat, 6.5g Carbs, 3.5g Fiber, 3.0g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. Nutritionals include crust.
  2. For a pecan tart or pie, substitute the walnuts for more pecans.
  3. Don’t think your crust will be dry. The filling soaks into it and it becomes just as dense and chewy as the filling.
  4. Nuts will not float to the top but stay nicely placed throughout the tart. (See Picture)
  5. Absolutely no need to grease pan as crust has so much butter in it. Each wedge will come out slicker than a whistle.
  6. Don't ask me how you can turn the ingredients listed into an absolutely fabulous low carb walnut pecan tart. It is beyond me and with a keto fat ratio of 91%.
  7. CAVEAT: I use the ingredients that I feel are the best available, for me personally. If you decide to make this (and I sure hope you do) I am unable to vouch for substitute sweeteners. I have multiple reasons for NOT using eryritol, oligosaccharides or food grade glycerin(e) and one of them is they are not as low in carbs as you may have been lead to believe.
  8. I do occasionally used EZ-Sweetz liquid Sucralose as it adds a different depth of sweetness rather than leaving something one dimensional and neither of the products used here have any carbs in them no matter how much you use. None of the above mentioned can begin to say that which is why you see a nutritional label for 1 t or God forbid ½ t.

Low Carb Broccoli & Thai Peanut Sauce

Low Carb Broccoli & Thai Peanut SauceLow Carb Broccoli & Thai Peanut SauceLow Carb Broccoli & Thai Peanut Sauce. Not really sure how to describe the flavors of this fabulous dish except to say…well…it’s fabulous. No, not some ole limpy, watery, broccoli but charred broccoli.  I love charred broccoli as in Broccoli With Brown Butter Fish Sauce and probably just about any other way someone would serve it to me, and broccoli with a piquant peanut sauce is over the top and here is yet another Sweeter Spicier Thai Peanut Sauce.

I wouldn’t want you to think that broccoli is the only thing you can use this Thai peanut sauce on because that wouldn’t be true.  It is wonderful on sautéed eggplant and as a salad dressing on boiled mung bean sprouts with other Asian vegetables.  And I am sure you will come up with many other ways to use it.

Low Carb Carbalose Flour Scones

Low Carb Carbalose Flour SconesLow Carb Carbalose Flour SconesLow Carb Carbalose Flour Scones.  I once did the overnight shift (1:00am-9:00am) working for a catering company/restaurant as one of two bakers.  I absolutely loved the job as I was by myself until 6:00am.  It was quiet and I could just work at my own (then) frenetic pace.  One of the many things I made, and mostly for the restaurant, was scones and during my stint there, I made 1,000’s of them. Great big whoppers. Not sure if I have made any since then but I had someone ask me if I had a recipe and I had to tell her no so…I thought I would put one out.  I mostly made fruit scones but you can do that yourself if you wish.  This is just a basic low carb Carbalose Flour Scones recipe and I have to say, they are good warmed, slathered with butter along with a good cup of afternoon coffee or tea.  I personally do not eat afternoon anything except dinner but these were pretty tempting and um, I broke down and ate two of them-thus ruining my dinner plans.  Remember I’m pretty old and simply can’t eat as much as I used to.  I added almonds and a little almond extract but the recipe can be made plain or with any of your own additions.  A little sugarfree raspberry jam?  Oh yeah, and everybody knows raspberries and almonds are a marriage made in foodie heaven. Of course in my haste to eat them…I forgot I even had the raspberry jam but…there will be a next time.

Low Carb Pecan Sandy Bars

Low Carb Pecan Sandy BarsLow Carb Pecan Sandy BarsLow Carb Pecan Sandy Bars.  To set the stage:  The day before Christmas I was making a Pie Crust, taking pictures as replacement, and had quite a bit left over so I threw it into a container and then into the freezer.  Several hours later, and realizing how wonderful the pie crust is, it came to me that perhaps with little to no changes I could make kind of a shortbread cookie with it so I hauled it out of the freezer to thaw and proceeded from there and like wow, these are ridiculously good.  I know there are other recipes for pecan cookies but my adage has been and remains that for maximum flavor you need to take advantage of Surface Area and what better way to do this than to grind an ingredient. Now, I do have a Carbalose Duck Fat Shortbread Cookies recipe but these Pecan Sandy Bars don’t have any grains in them so they are totally keto ~ paleo. Oh, and did I mention they have fat in them?  Yeah, lots & lots & lots of fat.

When I was diagnosed with diabetes on September 17, 2010 my first thought was probably the same as most diabetics:  Uh oh, I am never going to be able to again have______fill in the blank and I now realize that is such baloney. Examples: The recipe that eventually launched this site Carbalose BreadButter Pecan Ice Cream, and this recipe for Low Carb Pecan Sandy Bars.  Gads, I can go to nearly any country in the world and enjoy low carb version of their foods.

So, we all have inspirations from time to time and these low carb pecan sandy bars are one of mine.  I am inspired by fabrics and colors and textures hence Kingsize Quilts and for 40+ years as a chef, I have been inspired by foods and their ingredients.

  3. When cooled the bars will be very crunchy and melt in your mouth…just like the original pecan sandies. I didn't try it because these are so good on their own but maybe ½ C of sugar-free desiccated coconut and ¼ C more butter might be pretty tasty too.
  4. I grind lots of chia seeds in my spice grinder and since it never takes much of it, I do a lot at one time and keep them in the freezer for future use. Again going back to surface area and why it is so important.

Low Carb Kugelis

Low Carb KugelisLow Carb KugelisLow Carb KugelisLow Carb Kugelis. The only question here is:  Do you like bacon? This is an old Lithuanian/Polish dish and is probably made differently by as many people as there are who make it.  Originally a peasant dish made with bacon, grated potatoes, and onions with lots of eggs and milk, it is still made (mostly) the same way today.  Yes, I have onions in mine but have subbed daikon radish for the high carby potatoes and heavy cream for milk and in one word it…is…delicious.  With the invention of some modern appliances like a food processor this is pretty easy to make, it makes a lot and I think I know why.  Way back when as mostly people lived on farms and had lots of little mouths to feed, Kugelis could feed a small army of (children) farm workers and…all the ingredients were not only inexpensive, they were readily available on any farm.  I can’t imagine this this but the women grated the potatoes and the onions on the smallest holes on probably what was some really old grater.  It will look like a pudding before you cook it but rest assured it is not after it has baked.  I guarantee you will not be able to tell any difference between this low carb kugelis and any original and if you have leftovers?  Put a couple of eggs on top and eat it for a super hearty breakfast.

Low Carb Bacon Thyme Cauliflower Rice

Low Carb Thyme Bacon Cauliflower RiceLow Carb Thyme Bacon Cauliflower RiceLow Carb Bacon Thyme Cauliflower Rice.  I just kinda threw this together on a Sunday afternoon and it was so good I decided to post it.  You can see from the ingredients picture how simple it is.  I was originally going to use that olive oil along with the bacon grease but since I had some duck fat left over from a duck breast I did the other day, I used it instead.  Sometimes just a little of this and a little of that gives you something really good to eat.  Try it sometime. It can be rewarding and fun.

  3. Clean gills out of portobello mushrooms. Slice into very small pieces. Set aside.

  5. Add 3 T olive oil to medium high large pan and cook mushrooms until they just begin to brown. After cooking you should end up with about two cups of mushrooms. You may have to cook these in two batches. Set aside.
  6. Finely chop onion, turn down heat, add 1 T butter to pan and slowly cook onion to just beginning to caramelize.

  11. Put into oven for 15 minutes then turn oven down to 325° and cook additional 20-25 minutes or until pie is finished cooking and has just begun to brown on top.
  12. Put on counter until well cooled. It needs to be cool to cut. If you are in a hurry no problem, but it will begin to run.

Keto Butter Pecan Mousse

Low Carb Pumpkin Pecan MousseLow Carb Pumpkin Pecan MousseLow Carb Pumpkin Pecan Mousse

 

 

 

 

 

Keto Butter Pecan Mousse.  If you like butter pecan ice cream you are going to love this low carb keto butter pecan mousse. Let’s face it, just about every can of anything available today is not the right size anymore for many traditional recipes.  A can of pumpkin that used to be 16 oz. is now 15 oz. and the next thing you know they will be 14 or 14½ oz.  Certainly the larger cans are even worse.  Instead of doubling 15 oz. they are only…29 oz.  Yikes, what the heck do you do with the leftovers after making a Crustless Cream Cheese Pumpkin Pie?  Well, my answer is to make this Keto Butter Pecan Mousse.  It has virtually no carbs and is delicious.

When I was a little girl my favorite ice cream flavor was butter pecan.  I don’t really know that it was my favorite but it was what my dad ate and I wanted to be just like my dad. If the truth be known, and sometimes it is hard to tell it, when I whipped up this little dandy…I forget to throw in the spices and guess what…I didn’t even notice it until I was looking at my handwritten list.  And you what else?  It is absolutely delicious without them and without the spices, but with the Sugar-Free Maple Syrup it actually looks and tastes (at least to me) just like butter pecan ice cream.  If you believe in divine intervention, this is one of those times. So, the spices, put ‘em in or leave ‘em out, no biggie.  From the time I started this until I put into the glass containers was about 20 minutes.

Ingredients
  1. ¾ C Left-Over Pumpkin Purée
  2. 6 Oz Softened Cream Cheese
  3. ¼ C Sour Cream
  4. ¼ C Just Like Sugar Brown***
  5. ½ C Heavy Whipping Cream
  6. ¼ t Vanilla Extract
  7. 3 Drops EZSweetz***
  8. ¾ C Toasted Pecans
  9. SugarFree Maple Syrup***
  10. 1 t Cinnamon (Optional)
  11. ¼ t Ground Ginger (Optional)
  12. ⅛ t Ground Cloves (Optional)
  13. ⅛ t Mace Or Nutmeg (Optional)
Instructions
  1. Beat cream cheese, sour cream, and Just Like Sugar Brown until smooth.
  2. Mix in pumpkin purée (and spices if you are using them).
  3. Whip heavy cream, add vanilla extract, and EZSweetz.
  4. Gently blending, add ½ whipped cream into pumpkin mixture until well incorporated. Add second ½ cream.
  5. Spoon into serving glass or bowl until ½ full, drizzle with maple syrup (if using) and top with 1 T nuts.
  6. Repeat until full, topping with more syrup and nuts.
  7. Your dessert should look like a fancy nutty parfait if you use a clear container.

Notes
  1. This is definitely Not A Holidays Only Dessert. This seriously does taste like butter pecan ice cream and uh, what's wrong with that?
  2. If you opt to add the spices it will taste more like a pumpkin pie mousse…but really good.
  3. Yes, if you decide to only make this mousse you can freeze the remaining pumpkin in an ice cube tray to make it again. If some of the liquid separates, drain it well and proceed.
  4. Tip: If by chance your pumpkin (or sour cream for that matter) is particularly loose or watery this little trick will keep you mousse holding its shape. Take 2 T of cold water and sprinkle ½ t of gelatin over it. Let sit for 5 minutes, put in microwave and pulse 1-2 times for 5 seconds until it turns clear. Beat it into your whipped cream and voilà, it will certainly hold for several days in the fridge. (Like it’s ever gonna last that long).

I now use it as a salad dressing along with several other things so I am posting it as a stand alone recipe.  With a little olive oil I love it as a salad dressing and anything else you might think of to dip into it.  Cucumbers? Yep. Steak? Shrimp? Oh My. Try it.  Another little trick I have learned along the way is using Persian limes instead of the old standby ones everybody uses.  They seem a bit smaller to me but they actually have more juice in them.  I have reamed a lot of lemons and limes in my day and because these have a thinner rind there is more room for juice. Anyway I’m just sayin…

Low Carb Eggplant Soup

Low Carb Eggplant SoupLow Carb Eggplant SoupLow Carb Eggplant Soup

Low Carb Eggplant SoupLow Carb Eggplant Soup.  Rich, thick, eggplant soup with lots of olive oil and even more flavor. This soup has it all. Bottom center is how I usually sauté my eggplant so please pardon me, but I had to show off my deluxe 12″ aluminum foil sauté pan cover.  I made it about 6-7 years ago and have kept and used it over and over again because…it works.  Some of you may laugh, and rightly so, but I consider myself a minimalist when it comes to kitchenware and this is just a good example.  Where do I store it?  Glad you asked and it rests in my dishwasher along with various other things because in over 12 years…I have never actually used the dishwasher for its intended purpose.  Yep, I’m one of those rare nut cases that actually loves to do my own dishes.  If you want to see another oldie pan I bought for .10 at a garage sale check out the Carbalose Flour Butter Cream Biscuits recipe.  That baby is about 25-30 years old and I am not about to ever let it go.  I later found out it originally went inside a toaster oven and I barely knew what a toaster oven was, let alone owned one.  Bottom right is how I ate it again with za’atar and black seeds. No one expects you to eat it this way as almost no one has these very Middle-Eastern/African/Greek spices but if by some chance you do, use them as they are the absolute perfect topping for this soup.

Of further interest, this soup is good either cold, warm or hot just like Low Carb Vichyssoise.

Eggplant Soup
Print
Ingredients
  1. 2 Eggplants Peeled And Sliced Lengthwise
  2. ¼ C Olive Oil
  3. 1 Chopped Medium Onion
  4. 5 Celery Stalks Finely Chopped
  5. 5-6 C Water (Or Chicken Stock)
  6. 3-4 t Chicken Base*** (Or To Taste If Using Stock)
  7. 1 Can Diced Tomatoes
  8. ¼ C Dried Parsley
  9. ¼ C Cilantro Stems
  10. 2 T Crushed Garlic
  11. 1½ t Thyme
  12. 1-1½ t Ground Cumin
  13. ¼ t Cayenne Pepper
  14. ½ C Chopped Cilantro Leaves (Garnish)
  15. ¼ C Olive Oil (Garnish)
  16. 1 Tomato Cut Into Small Dice (Optional)
  17. 1-2 t Liquid Smoke (Optional)
  18. Salt & Pepper To Taste
Instructions
  1. Cook your eggplant anyway you wish to get it very soft. (See Notes) I added about ¼ C of oil to mine.
  2. Put 2 C water (or stock) with celery and onion into a good-size deep pan, cover, and simmer until celery is tender. Including eggplant, dump in rest of ingredients down to cilantro & olive oil garnish, and bring to hot. My pot is an old 3 qt. Revereware which I don't think is even available anymore.
  3. Remove from heat and with emersion stick, blend until relatively smooth and thick.
  4. Taste and season if necessary.
  5. Put into large bowls, add small diced tomato of using, place cilantro, and drizzle with olive oil.

  7. 169 Calories, 2.0g Protein, 14.2g Fat, 10.4g Carbs, 3.6g Fiber, 6.8g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. I used about a T of reserved diced tomato as garnish under the cilantro and it was surprisingly tasty so I would suggest you do the same.
  2. There are several other ways to cook your eggplant. One is to peel, chop, and sauté it in olive oil. I ended up having to cut it up anyway or, you can bake it peeled in the oven until soft and squeeze out the guts. I find that you lose a bit of eggplant by doing it this way.
  3. If you are using plain chicken stock, you will definitely have to use more salt.
  4. You may make this thinner by adding a little more stock or water as it is naturally very thick on its own.
  5. I did not add liquid smoke originally and if you don't have it don't worry as it is not an essential ingredient. It just goes well with eggplant. I tried it the next day in another bowl and I would now always use it.
  6. If you don’t have an emersion stick or a large blender do not attempt to make this soup as it is my belief if you put it into a processor it might make a mess…and I could be wrong but better wrong than sorry.

Low Carb Shrimp Étouffée

Low Carb Shrimp ÉtoufféeLow Carb Shrimp ÉtoufféeLow Carb Shrimp Étouffée.  Ah Yes, Étouffée.  Another Louisiana classic.  There are always alternatives to a high carby roux and we are going to kind of go the in-between route here in that I am not using any flour but I am using tomato paste.  Many an expert you might care to name, says a good low carb shrimp étouffée is not only made with, duh shrimp, but also with a stock made from the shells and this couldn’t be easier as you’ll see in the directions below. Since we are not making a roux there is no laborious stirring and waiting for it to turn dark brown.  We are also not using traditional rice but instead using either riced cauliflower or a Cauliflower Grits recipe which can easily be made days in advance and frozen for later use.

Some of you may look at the list of ingredients here but I would bet most of you have them in your pantries.  Including making the stock, from start to finish, it takes only about 1½-2 hours and that’s while you can be doing other things.  Once you have made it you may say; that was really easy-everybody loved it so…I think I’ll make it again.

Low Carb Asian Beef Eggplant Zucchini Stew

Low Carb Asian Beef Eggplant Zucchini StewLow Carb Asian Beef Eggplant Zucchini StewLow Carb Asian Beef Eggplant Zucchini StewLow Carb Asian Beef Eggplant Zucchini StewLow Carb Asian Beef Eggplant Zucchini StewLow Carb Asian Beef Eggplant Zucchini Stew.  Now you can call this a stew or you can call this a soup but whatever you call it, it is good, hearty, and healthy.  Depending on how you spice this you can eat in Italy, Japan, Thailand, China and yes even in America.

I personally like the flavors of Asia so that is what we are doing here and if this is successful, I may post the same recipe using different spices and adding other ingredients.  This is very easy to make assuming you have the spices and get yourself some mung bean sprouts.  Yes, I garnished mine with a few enoki mushrooms but it is absolutely not necessary.  If you decide to use them they take about 15-20 seconds in a tiny amount of steaming water to cook.  I added some fried garlic and green onions in olive oil to the enokis I had left over and they were terrific with a rather sweetish flavor.

Low Carb Mung Bean Sprouts Carbonara

Low Carb Mung Bean Sprouts CarbonaraLow Carb Mung Bean Sprouts Carbonara.  Yes, you can have an Italian dinner this evening.  No, you don’t need to go to the Olive Garden to get it.  Pasta carbonara is one of the truly classic Italian dishes and it does not need to be made with high carby pasta.  We are going to use mung bean sprouts instead and by the time we are finished, I doubt you will be able to tell much difference.  Traditionally, carbonara does not have cream in it but no fear, it is really good and does make the meal more hearty.  Hopefully you can find a good pancetta but if not, a good quality smoked bacon will work as a decent stand-in.

This is an extremely low carb but more importantly, high fat recipe.  This is keto at its best and In my humble opinion, very healthy trading about 50g carbs in a pasta for about 7g in sprouts so, the choice is yours. That big beautiful display of basil?  I kid you not, I. Ate. It. All.

Keto Ethiopian Cabbage

Low Carb Ethiopian CabbageLow Carb Ethiopian CabbageLow Carb Ethiopian CabbageKeto Ethiopian Cabbage.  I had my first Ethiopian dining experience the other day and it was a dandy.  I shared the plate to the right with someone and it was literally to die for.  Small dribs and drabs of this & that all on top of Ethiopian bread made with teff, which to my knowledge, is the highest carb grain there is.  It was all spectacular but the thing that struck me the most was the cabbage. It was creamy and rich and for whatever reason and I do not know why, it did not have any potatoes in it which would be traditional.  And it case you’re curious, no, neither of us ate the bread.  This is very easy to make and you can be doing other things while it simmers.  As you can see, you can sub daikon radishes for potatoes nearly every time.

Started out and had planned to make about 4 servings of keto Ethiopian cabbage and you know what they say about the best laid plans…so, the recipe is for eight people but…you will wish you had even more of it.  Those little pie shaped thingies are thinly sliced daikon radish rounds.

  2. Daikon is best sliced on a mandoline and then depending on rounds cut into either four or six wedges.
  3. If you want to add ¼ C of heavy cream the last 10 minutes of simmering it may make it a bit creamier but oh Lordy, it already is creamy.

To make them you will need one recipe of the crêpes.  I also of course used my own Taco Seasoning but you may use your own or again, something you can buy in the grocery.

Low Carb Tahini Almond Butter Walnut Brownies

Low Carb Tahini Almond Butter Walnut BrowniesLow Carb Tahini Almond Butter Walnut BrowniesLow Carb Tahini Almond Butter Walnut BrowniesLow Carb Tahini Almond Butter Walnut BrowniesLow Carb Tahini Almond Butter Walnut Brownies. I have, over the last eight years, tried more than several “supposed” low carb “moist brownies” only to be sadly disappointed one more time.  A while ago I posted a Tahini Almond Butter Walnut Balls cookie recipe using this exact same batter and the cookies, if not over done, were like fudge in the center. Thinking if the cookies were so fudgy what if I tried the same batter for brownies.  Did it work…Oh yeah, it sure did. The only other brownie recipe you will find on this site are Mocha Zucchini Brownies-Mocha Ganache but the reason these brownies might be so much better is that it is a dump & mix recipe and there are not many of them unless you do some kind of boxed mix. (Ugh)  This was just the first time I tried making these but the next time (if there is one) I am going to put the coffee ganache on them instead of the plain ole ganache I made.  I hope you can tell from the picture above how seriously moist these look because they are as stick-to-the-roof-of-your-mouth as any other really good brownie and I think the secret is all the oils in almond butter and tahini, I mean, come on. I believe these low carb tahini almond butter walnut brownies are absolutely the best.

I did make a batch of mocha brownies so I added a couple more pics.  Notice the nooks & crannies after baking which are filled with the ganache and I also allowed the ganache to drip over the edges which in my opinion keeps these moist brownies even more so.

  2. ½ C Tahini
  3. 2 Eggs

  5. 2 T Peanut Flour
  6. 2 T Water
  7. 1 T Melted Butter
  8. ⅔ C Just Like Sugar
  9. 2 t Vanilla
  10. 1 t Baking Soda
  11. ½ C Chopped Walnuts
Ganache
  1. ½ C 40% Heavy Cream
  2. ⅓ C Good Chocolate Bar Cut Into Small Pieces.
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Minus the walnuts dump everything else into a mixing bowl and thoroughly combine with an electric mixer.
  3. Fold in nuts.
  4. This batter is so thick you will need to push it into a paper lined 8x8 pan with a couple of fingers.
  5. Bake 12-13 minutes and no longer. You can’t tell that they are done but better a bit under-done than a bit over-done if you want them to be fudgy.
Ganache
  1. Heat heavy cream to simmer and keep your eyes on it-you don't want to boil it or you will have a huge mess on your hands.
  2. I put my chocolate into the microwave on med-low for 20 sec, stir, and repeat until it is just beginning to melt.
  3. Add hot heavy cream to chocolate and stir constantly until all chocolate is melted and incorporated.
  4. Let brownies cool just a bit, cover & spread with ganache and cool in the refrigrator until ganache is set.
  5. Carefully lift brownies out of pan, cut & serve. You're in for a treat.

Notes
  1. I used Endangered Species 88% chocolate bar in my ganache.
  2. Notice that the fat content is 195 of the 233 calories. That's 84% Fat.
  3. If you want mocha brownies add ½ t instant coffee to mix and then add 1 t to ganache. I also added 2 drops EZSweetz into ganache with the coffee.
  4. CAVEAT: I use the ingredients that I feel are the best available, for me personally. If you decide to make this (and I sure hope you do) I am unable to vouch for substitute sweeteners. I have multiple reasons for NOT using eryritol with or without oligosaccharides, food grade glycerin, or anything with probiotic tapioca fiber. None of them are as low in carbs as you may have been lead to believe.
  5. I do occasionally used EZ-Sweetz liquid Sucralose as it adds a different depth of sweetness rather than leaving something one dimensional and neither of the products used here have any carbs in them no matter how much you use. None of the above mentioned can begin to say that which is why you see a nutritional label for 1 t or God forbid ½ t.

Low Carb Shrimp Taco Crêpes

Hoping that you are able to see from all the crêpes recipes I have recently posted that you can put a whole lot more than just ham and cheese in them. Those white sticks in the background on the plate  are jicama sticks sprinkled with lime juice and chili powder and they are so, so good.  You will need one recipe of Flaxseed Meal Crêpes  and if you are so inclined to make your own here is a good recipe for Taco Seasoning which is so much less expensive than the purchased kind and which may have sugar in it.

Don’t make the mistake of using imitation seafood anything.  It is NOT low carb.  It is filled with starch as a binder and has 13g carbs in 3 measly oz.  I made the mistake and paid for it in my BS testing after dinner and I couldn’t figure out why and/but…now I know.

Low Carb Mu Shu Pork Crêpes

Low Carb Mu Shu Pork CrêpesLow Carb Mu Shu Pork CrêpesLow Carb Mu Shu Pork Crêpes.  I doubt there are too many people in this country who have never had either Mu Shu Pork or Peking Duck at one time or another in their lives and the predominate flavor in both is Hoisin Sauce.  In most restaurants all the ingredients are cooked in a wok, bound together with egg and served in a large bowl with a side of Chinese pancakes which is fine if that’s what you know but it is my opinion that people love to make their own food at a communal table and this is the perfect meal with which to do it.  It does not take much of each ingredient to make one crêpe and if served in small bowls on the table, each person can pick and choose their own ingredients.  And there is a big bonus, you can actually taste each flavor.  Soooo with all that said, I am going to show you two ways to fix this.  One is probably just as good as the other but the second way is…a lot faster and sometimes when we are putting a meal on the table, faster is better.

You will need a recipe for both Flaxseed Meal Crêpes and Hoisin Sauce.  It is also my opinion that once you have made both of these recipes you will make them again and again as there are so many recipes, just on this site that use them, and of course you are welcome to make up your own.

At some point I will be making a completely separate Category for the many crêpe recipes I am developing but for now here are a few of them.  Raspberry Almond CrêpesCrab Rangoon Bundles/Asian DrizzleChicken Enchiladas,  Mushroom Ham Cheese Quesadillas and more.

Low Carb Strawberry Orange Crêpes

Low Carb Strawberry Orange CrêpesLow Carb Strawberry Orange Crêpes.  You’ll not see the orange in these but you sure as heck will be able to taste it.  I love crêpes and in fact I am going to try to post maybe 18-20 recipes for them.  With the advent of my Zero Carb Flaxseed Meal Crêpes I can now have crêpes any which way but loose-and actually…loose too.  They can be savory as well as sweetened and yes, I like them both ways.  It’s always easier to start with the sweet stuff because it is what grabs peoples attention first but there really aren’t that many of them as most are savory and begin to think Enchiladas.  You know, I have to eat the recipes I test and I have to say, not only are these low carb strawberry orange crêpes easy to eat, they are also easy to make.

Low Carb Peruvian Green Sauce

Low Carb Peruvian Green SauceLow Carb Peruvian Green SauceLow Carb Peruvian Green Sauce.  This sauce is ridiculously easy and fast to make-probably not more that 5-10 minutes but oh boy, the flavors.  Real Peruvian Green Sauce may not have any cheese in it and if you don’t want it, don’t put it in.  This is best served with fish or chicken but it also makes a fabulous salad dressing and for the dressing the Parmesan cheese is a must. As you look at the nutritionals it is basically a free keto food. ZeroCarb.

  2. If you are making this as a salad dressing the Parmesan cheese is pretty essential.

Low Carb Chicken Parmesan Over Sprouts

Low Carb Chicken Parmesan Over SproutsLow Carb Chicken Parmesan Over SproutsLow Carb Chicken Parmesan Over Sprouts. A pretty study in the Italian flag colors of red, white, and green.  It is ridiculous that I have never posted a recipe for Chicken Parmesan but I am only human and as I was doing the Puttanesca Over Mung Bean Sprouts I realized instead of doing this over something like spaghetti squash why not also make a low carb chicken Parmesan over mung bean sprouts too. Heaven only knows how many recipes I have replaced flour using pork skins but this is at least the latest.  You need to trust me on this, fried pork skins keep EVERYTHING moist.  I have said I fry my own pellets but you can easily enough buy pork skins and even buy the ground Pork Dust here.  This is a very simple & easy recipe and I can’t imagine what the carb difference would be between real pasta and mung bean sprouts but I do know this, I can eat sprouts and I can’t eat pasta.

Low Carb Thousand Island Dressing

Low Carb Thousand Island DressingLow Carb Thousand Island DressingLow Carb Thousand Island DressingLow Carb Thousand Island Dressing.  I should have posted this low carb 1,000 island dressing recipe a long time ago but you know how it is and better late than never.  I kind of messed up a little getting ahead of myself with pictures and kinda forgot to take a picture of the finished dressing and that’s why you see that puny little dish with only about ¼ cup in it.  Oops.

Anyway, back at the ranch (on one of those 1,000 islands), this recipe has been around forever.  Some will mix in a hard-boiled egg but I like the way a salad or most other things look with grated egg on top so that’s the way I do mine.  If you are going to top something like the Open-Faced Rueben then better to add your hard-boiled egg into the dressing or better yet, put the egg in the dressing and then more grated egg on top.

Low Carb Mung Bean Sprouts Salad

Low Carb Mung Bean Sprouts SaladLow Carb Mung Bean Sprouts SaladLow Carb Mung Bean Sprouts Salad.  What in heaven’s name do you do with a big ole bag of beautiful white mung bean sprouts when you have purchased them and only needed a small amount?  Most people let them sit in their refrigerator for 5-6 days while they turn to…but you don’t need to, not anymore.  This recipe goes right from fresh leftover sprouts to a warm side dish or a cold salad-your choice.  I think once you have had them you will be buying sprouts just to make this dish as it is that good.  You might call it a little side dish of Asia.

If you end up making (and I recommend it) the Vietnamese Shrimp Bowl, you will have leftover sprouts and now you know how to use them.

Low Carb Vietnamese Shrimp Bowl

Low Carb Vietnamese Shrimp BowlLow Carb Vietnamese Shrimp BowlLow Carb Vietnamese Shrimp Bowl.  I ended up making this with a bunch of leftovers and it was so good I decided to do a recipe with it.  I was originally going to use pulled pork in it but wondered how many people have pulled pork just hanging around so decided to leave it out, substituting avocado instead.  Everything else is pretty reasonably and easily gotten. We all do a little experimenting from time to time and of course, so do I.  The difference is, I have to eat what I make and if it’s not right I need to do it over…and eat it again so…I have included the pics from the first try as a wrap.

Low Carb Vietnamese Shrimp BowlLow Carb Vietnamese Shrimp BowlThe wraps were so good…and so messy, that I redid it as a bowl.  I have also included a sketch I did to figure out the color scheme and where I wanted to place everything and as you can see, the pulled pork didn’t make the final cut. I rearranged things-again for the final picture.  Did I have trouble making and having to eat this again?  Nope. Not. At. All.  I used bibb lettuce for the wrap but since I always have bok choy (my lettuce of choice) I used it in the bowl.

It is now the dog days of August and though this is a perfect anytime dinner dish, you will not need to do any cooking except to do a longish blanch with the bean sprouts.  After eating?  You might think you just stepped out of a Vietnamese restaurant.

It’s just a list of ingredients and comes together very quickly.  You may have a little dressing left over but don’t worry, it would last a long time in the fridge and once you have eaten it, it would disappear very quickly.  Make no mistake, this is a complete and filling meal and if you want to make any substitutions please do, as this is cooking-not baking and a salad is always just a guide.  If you can’t get fresh mint then please try to include a little dried mint into the dressing as it enhances the flavors very well and kind of bring the whole bowl together.

So, what do you do with your leftover mung bean sprouts?  I have the answer :  Mung Bean Sprouts Salad served either warm as a vegetable or cold as a salad.

Low Carb Chicken Piccata

Low Carb Chicken PiccataLow Carb Chicken PiccataLow Carb Chicken Piccata. You are looking at that very rare commodity known as a chicken tender.  They are pretty hard to find anymore as they command a higher price because of their uses in restaurants over the last 20 years.  My sweet little neighborhood Beaumont Market got a new (but actually retired) butcher and has decided to order them.  Yes, they are a little more expensive but in my world well worth it, because they are so easily portion controlled and how quickly they cook without drying out.  This can certainly also be made with juicy thigh meat but then you have dark meat.  I have made it known how much I prefer dark chicken meat over white but chicken tenders are a game changer.  I will purchase and eat these for as long as Jim continues to get and sell them and they are perfect for you and your kids fixed any number of ways including Crunchy Deep Fried Chicken Chips. Pretty much everybody knows how much kids like the crummy McNuggets served by McDonald’s but mine are a terrific healthy alternative.

Low Carb Beef And Daikon Radish Soup

Low Carb Beef And Daikon Radish SoupLow Carb Beef And Daikon Radish SoupLow Carb Beef And Daikon Radish SoupLow Carb Beef And Daikon Radish SoupLow Carb Beef And Daikon Radish Soup. Having worked in and having had restaurants, one of the staple soups has always been beef and macaroni.  Not anymore.  Soups can be just as flavorful and full of low carb goodness without potatoes or macaroni or any other high carby vegetable for that matter.  Trust me as I have now eaten low carb for 8 years. Over those years I have come to realize that daikon radish is the perfect substitute for potatoes.  It has its own very mild flavor but totally loses it when cooked and added to other flavors and this low carb beef and daikon radish soup is a perfect example.  I have used celery root, and lots of other things in place of potatoes and daikon radish now remains at the top of my list.  It is good for crudités, soups of all kinds, it can be roasted, and used in stews.  Soooo…this is my ode to daikon radish, and may all you low carbers everywhere use it prodigiously.  You don’t need a thickener for every soup and this is one of them-just filled with good stuff.  There is a kind of secret ingredient and…it’s the Lawry’s Seasoned Salt so, if possible please use it.  I left  some of the cheese off so you see a bit of what the soup looks like.  Now, I can’t make a daikon radish look like macaroni and that’s a fact but-I can make a soup taste so you’ll never miss that macaroni.

Low Carb Umami Powder

Low Carb Umami PowderLow Carb Umami PowderLow Carb Umami PowderLow Carb Umami Powder.  If you have a spice grinder and/or a mortar & pestle this low carb umami powder will change your cooking life and I am serious. It is fabulous and will enhance nearly anything you can imagine.  Now I have used Pistol River Porcini Dust forever and it is in a lot of my recipes but with the addition of ground fermented black beans it is a powerhouse of flavor like no other and I’m rather surprised McCormick’s or some other spice company has not come out with something similar because it is so easy.  Two lousy ingredients of pure umami.  You can use it to jazz up soups, sprinkle it on salads and dress meats with it and just the smell is enough to give you inspiration.  Since I just came up with the idea the only other recipe I have done thus far is Umami Mayo which can be used as a dip with Fried Pork Skins or low carb crudité veggies. To read more regarding what umami is, please see the Umami Mayo recipe as I describe it more in detail there along with my take on MSG which is something I do not use but only for reasons explained there-it is a good short read. You will also see the ground ferment beans (and not porcini dust) in the recipe for Hoisin Sauce which is then use to make Peking Duck so you may as well grind extra beans if you plan to use hoisin sauce and I do use it in small quantities in several other recipes including the recently added Kung Pao Riced Cauliflower.  That little container you see in the picture probably has about ½ cup and I keep it in the freezer until I need a little more.

Umami Powder
Print
Ingredients
  1. 3 T Porcini Powder
  2. 3 T Ground Salted Fermented Black Beans Powder
Grinding The Fermented Black Beans
  1. Smash beans on the counter, transfer them to spice grinder, and add porcini powder.
  2. Begin pulsing and then grind until it all turns to a powder. The longer you grind, the lighter in color it becomes. The beans are black to start and end up a beautiful mahogany brown when finished.
  3. 6 Servings
  4. 0 Calories, 0.0g Protein, 0.0g Fat, 0.0g Carbs, 0.0g Fiber, 0.0g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. This is made with 3 T each ingredient, is used 1 teaspoon at a time which, and is then, ready to be used as wanted. The recipe is always equal parts each ingredient.
  2. You can very easily grind your own dried porcini mushrooms or...buy the dust from Pistol River Mushrooms here in Oregon.
  3. Since I came up with this myself I am afraid you cannot find ground fermented black bean powder. I did find some stuff on amazon but the color was so light it didn't seem like the same product. I know the product is available somewhere because it is called mejugaru and used to make Korean gochujang and also goes by the name Fermented Soy Bean Flour and not to be confused with Soy Flour. Since I use the beans for other thing I just ground it myself and you are certainly welcome to search it further on the internet.
  4. It must have something in the way of nutritionals but the amounts are so small they don't register so this is definitely a zero carb recipe.
  5. Can you add any other spices? Of course you can-anything you want.
  6. This is not necessarily a salt replacement although the black beans are fermented with salt so go easy on the salt until you know.
  7. To my tastes it seems mildly sweet with of course no sweetener of any kind in it.

Low Carb Vietnamese Fish Dipping Sauce

Low Carb Vietnamese Fish Dipping SauceLow Carb Vietnamese Fish Dipping SauceLow Carb Vietnamese Fish Dipping SauceLow Carb Vietnamese Fish Dipping SauceLow Carb Vietnamese Fish Dipping Sauce.  Sometimes I like to make a sauce that is multi-functional and this sauce is one of those times.  I first used it as a salad dressing for Vietnamese Shrimp Salad and then realized it was also good to dip other foods into.  It is not thick so it will just give a nice coating on whatever you dip into it.  Don’t be surprised when the flavor knocks you off your feet because as with all things fish saucy, this does it too.  Because I first did it as a salad dressing with shrimp, shrimp is the first thing that came to my dippy mind and of course any kind of vegetable or other meats would work as well.  This is very, very easy to put together. Pictured are a plain salad and the salad as a dinner I had last night…with shrimp.  I haven’t done it yet but I’m thinking over a piece of good fish would be dandy too.

Low Carb Kung Pao Riced Cauliflower

Low Carb Kung Pao Riced CauliflowerLow Carb Kung Pao Riced CauliflowerLow Carb Kung Pao Riced Cauliflower. I think I could eat just about anything Asian and this low carb Kung Pao Riced Cauliflower does not disappoint. Kung pao chicken is probably one of America’s favorite Chinese recipes and is eaten thousands of times each day in restaurants across the country.  This has all the recipe elements & taste and none of the sugar or starches associated with Kung pao. You will need a recipe of Hoisin Sauce to complete the dish and trust me once you have tried the hoisin sauce you will quickly want to make yourself some Peking Duck or Chinese BBQ Pork Loin as hoisin is absolutely and utterly divine.  You may certainly add a bit more sauce, add chicken or shrimp and make this a complete meal.  Enjoy.

  3. In remaining olive oil and reserved bacon fat on medium high heat, sauté cauliflower and red peppers, stirring occasionally, until browned and beginning to soften or about 8-10 minutes. This is like sautéing hash browns. Mix in crumbled bacon and ¼ C green onions.
  4. Add reserved sauce to cauliflower and heat thoroughly.

Notes
  1. It does not matter what kind of red pepper paste you use. Mine happens to be a Middle-Eastern mild pepper paste and the recipe is based on that. If you have Korean paste please, use it and I assume you know how much heat you want your dish to have. Remember this is not baking and you can adjust any of the flavors you want.
  2. I didn't show bacon in the picture but I had it, used it and..it was good...especially with the bacon fat.
  3. I ultimately ended up using ½ C minced red peppers if for no other reason than for color.

This bag of pea eggplant was marked down to $1.00 and I swear, there is nothing wrong with them either. I think they look like tiny watermelons outside and juicy figs inside but…good grief they sure don’t taste like watermelons or figs.

Low Carb Shrimp Pecan Truffles

Low Carb Shrimp Pecan TrufflesLow Carb Shrimp Pecan TrufflesLow Carb Shrimp Pecan Truffles. Clearly, the toasted pecans may look like the star of this show but all of the ingredients go so well together using the cream cheese as glue. We mostly think of truffles as some type of chocolatey confection and in my lifetime I have eaten and loved many of them but that is not the case here as these low carb shrimp pecan truffles are savory.

I doubt many of you know this but after mostly retiring from the restaurant biz in 2002-03, I began making & selling quilts, many of which can be seen here.  People told me I was nuts as you could barely give away a quilt let alone sell them but I showed them that they were so wrong. I ended up selling quilts to people all over the world let alone all over the U.S.  During the time I was teaching myself to quilt, I was also watching a program on PBS called Cooking In Quilt Country with Marsha Adams.  I don’t know if Marsha was Amish in Ohio or even if she ever made a quilt or not but man, could she cook.  The program was a marriage made in heaven for a gal like me.  And so, these low carb shrimp pecan truffles are an homage to Marsha.  The recipe is hers and as she made them.  The only thing I don’t know is how large they were so I have made them bitesize, eminently poppable, and…probably easy to overeat but, have no fear as they are so low carb it just doesn’t matter.

Low Carb Carbalose Kimchi Fritters

Low Carb Carbalose Kimchi FrittersLow Carb Carbalose Kimchi FrittersLow Carb Carbalose Kimchi Fritters. I walked into my local neighbor Beaumont Market to talk to a friend and the only way to go in is left by the cheeses and some odd refrigerated items.  A jar of kimchi with a REDUCED sticker on it caught my eye immediately.  Gads, $2.00? For a fermented food?  It’s never going to go out of date so I grabbed it as quickly as I could.  Now, I eat kimchi relatively regularly so this is nothing out of the ordinary.  I ate a serving with Kassler Rippchen and still had enough left over to make these low carb kimchi fritters.  The thing I didn’t realize as I picked up the jar was; the word MILD on part of the label.  I have never heard of “mild” kimchi so I had to go with flow and added some garlic chili paste. Assuming you know what you are doing, unlike myself, you will buy a spicy flavorful kimchi.  I have it pictured with Asian Dipping Sauce because they go so well together and you can certainly use anything you would like or…just eat them plain. If you want the simplest dip…naw ya don’t.  I didn’t plan it but I thought you might like to see a bit of chicken p**p that can often accompany a truly raw egg.

Low Carb Broccoli With Brown Butter Fish Sauce

Low Carb Broccoli With Brown Butter Fish SauceLow Carb Broccoli With Brown Butter Fish SauceLow Carb Broccoli With Brown Butter Fish Sauce. I have broken down. I purchased fish sauce. I have used other ingredients in its place for too long and I can’t do it any longer.  It seriously has such an “its own umami flavor” and is so ubiquitous to so many ethnic cuisines that I want to post I just had to have some.  As you can see, I bought a tiny tester bottle but I can assure you I will be buying a bigger bottle next time because I plan to use it more.  One of the things I learned from the verbal tutorial at my local Thai market is that the fish sauce needs to be clear and free from anything floating around in it.

Low Carb Broccoli With Brown Butter Fish SauceIf you see dark glass with fish sauce in it-don’t buy it on general principals.  It may be fine but dark glass may be trying to hide things as well and something else I learned is the lighter the color the better so I think I will be buying either Squid, Three Crabs or Red Boat the next time and Red Boat 40°N is pretty much rated as the Ferrari of fish sauces and like most people-I dream of driving a Ferrari. I have since purchased a bottle of Red Boat 40°N and to even my plebian Asian tastes, the Red Boat is better. Fish Sauce should have only two ingredients: Anchovies and Salt.

One of the things it seems I have always been able to do is “smell” ingredients and know if I want to use it or not to make something.  I don’t mean eggs or meats but I do mostly mean spices & herbs.  I am able to do the same thing visually in the grocery store.  I can kind of look at foods and decide what I might want for dinner and then I might need this and this…  There can be problems with this system as I can tend to over-buy as I see lots of things I might want and which is why I always go with a list.  For sure I get the listed items and then…I can…get so sidetracked.  It is rare the shopping day that I go into the isles.  I do go into the bulk spice isle and rarely into any of the other ones.  I start in the meat and cheese departments and mostly go directly to produce with perhaps a stop at dairy if I need sour cream. I do have about about 6-7 places I go but always to the same departments in each one.  I am lucky in that I live in one of the foodie towns USA so everything is available to me within about a 20 minute drive and..I don’t even need to go across the “river” (that would be the Willamette) to get to any of them.  There are meat markets, produce markets, Asian markets, & Middle Eastern markets which are plenty enough to feed my little soul.

Boneless Pork LoinThis is the way I like my pork loin to look in the center.  Still pink and juicy.  In the second picture with the halibut I added a few red pepper flakes & the jalapeno juice and they are both keepers.  Sauteed the fish in butter cause…it’s what I always use and that’s the way like it.

This is basically a zero carb meal.

Print
Pork
  1. 1½ Lbs Boneless Loin Roast
  2. 1 t Olive Oil
Lime Fish Sauce
  1. 3 T Lime Juice
  2. 2 T Fish Sauce
  3. 1½ T Finely Chopped Cilantro Stems (Yes, The Stems)
  4. 1 T Just Like Sugar Brown
  5. 1 t Crushed Garlic
  6. ⅛ t Red Chili Flakes (Or 1 t Jalapeno Pepper Juice Or...Both)

Instructions
  1. Set meat on counter to room temperature at least 2-3 hours.
  2. Turn oven to broil and let heat for 5 minutes.
  3. Rub meat with olive oil.
  4. Lay foil on sheet pan, place meat, put under broiler about 10" below heat (middle oven shelf) for 5 minutes, turn, broil 5 more minutes, turn over once more for another not more than 5 minutes for a total of about 15 minutes broiling.
  5. Set on counter, cover and let rest 15 minutes. I do not cover mine because I want it just pink instead of taking the chance of ending up with shoe leather. It can only take an extra minute or so, so...
  6. DO NOT overcook.

Notes
  1. If you plan to dip other things except the meat, I would suggest doubling the sauce. If I don't use all mine...I slurp what little is left.
  2. I suggest cutting pork loin in half lengthwise (mine was) as it is easier to slice and eat but I leave that up to you. Asians make smaller portions to use chopsticks and will dip then take a bite etc.
  3. As noted by picture of fish this sauce is good on just about everything that swims, crawls or grazes and yes, even vegetables.
  4. Makes a terrific salad dressing.

Low Carb Chinese BBQ Pork Loin

Low Carb Chinese BBQ Pork Loin.  (Char Siu) Many years ago when I landed in the Pacific Northwest from the mountains of Colorado, one of the first things I was introduced to was Chinese BBQ Pork.  Someone I met, who remains a very dear friend, shared some with me and it was another “love at first bite” moment.  I had never had anything like it but I knew one thing, I was going to eat it again and again and again…that was, until I couldn’t eat sugar anymore.  But…with the figuring out of my new Hoisin Sauce recipe used for making Peking Duck, I can make this BBQ sauce basically sugar-free and it is exactly as I remember it.  Hoisin Sauce is only one of the ingredients and is needed to complete the dish, but this is a relatively easy appetizer to make so hold onto your hats because the ride is well worth the trip.

Imagine my anticipation when I realized I could make this low carb Chinese BBQ Pork (Char Siu in Chinese).  I had to buy a whole pork loin roast (about 4 lbs.), cut it into quarters, make the sauce, marinate the meat overnight (not necessary), cook it, wait for it to cool completely, slice it, take pictures and then for the first time since 2002 finally have it again.

I normally eat once a day in the afternoon about 3:30-4:00pm and if you think I was going to wait that long-think again.  As soon as I had everything set up and sliced the meat for the final pictures…I pigged out on it and I mean PIGGED OUT at 11:00am. It is/was exactly as I remembered it.  Did I eat it all?  No, it was even too much for me but great thing?…I can have it again tomorrow.

I have given you the recipe for the Chinese mustard the way I like it.  If you aren’t used to it, it may still blow your head off but it is a little different than that crud you get with Chinese take-out.  Remember, once you have made something it is much easier to make it again…and again…and I will.

If you want to impress your sports fans on game day this is one of the ways to do it.

This recipe makes enough for 8 as an appetizer (5 pieces) or dinner for 4 (10 pieces).  If you do it as an appetizer you can make and then freeze what you don’t need and then think how easy it will be the next time you want it.  I’m kidding, you WILL eat every bit of this.

Chinese BBQ Pork Loin (Char Siu)
Print
Ingredients
  1. 2 Lbs Boneless Pork Loin (About 7" Long)
  2. ¼ C Tamari
  3. 2 T My Low Carb Hoisin Sauce
  4. 2 T Oyster Sauce
  5. 2 T Sugar Free Rice Wine Vinegar
  6. 2 T Just Like Sugar Brown
  7. 1 t Crushed Garlic
  8. ½ t Five Spice Powder
  9. 10 Drops Red Food Coloring (Optional But Traditional)
  10. Sesame Seeds
  11. Chinese Hot Mustard (Recipe Below)
Chinese Mustard Recipe
  1. 2 T Mustard Powder
  2. 2 t Tamari Sauce
  3. 2 t Sugar Free Rice Wine Vinegar
  4. 2 t Dijon Mustard
  5. 2 t Water+Additional To Dilute If Wanted After It Rests
Instructions
  1. Cut pork loin in half. Pieces should look like picture. A whole pork loin can weight up to 10-11 lbs but is normally sold as a 2 lbs-4 lbs package so plan accordingly.
  2. Put pork into double plastic bag.
  3. Combine next 8 ingredients, mix well and spoon scant ½ into pork pieces, massaging into meat. Don't overdo the marinade into the pork as it will be less than you need for dipping.
  4. Roll up bag, put into a metal bowl (for safety) and refrigerate overnight.
  5. Take meat out of fridge at least 4 hours before cooking.
  6. Turn oven to broil and let heat for 5 minutes.
  7. Discard any used marinade.
  8. Lay foil on sheet pan, place meat, put under broiler about 10" below heat (middle oven shelf) for 5 minutes, turn, broil 5 more minutes, turn over once more for another not more than 5 minutes for a total of about 15 minutes broiling. If it chars all the better as it tastes wonderful.
  9. DO NOT overcook.
  10. Leaving it uncovered, let it sit on counter 15 minutes. Continue leaving it uncovered and put in refrigerator to cool-to-cold-thoroughly.
  11. Make mustard sauce and let sit at least 10-15 minutes.
  12. Slice cold pork very thinly and as you can see I got 20 slices from 1 lb. of pork.
  13. Arrange on a large platter, putting 3-4 small dipping bowls of mustard, sesame seeds, and the remaining marinade sauce. This will give you two flavor profiles. 1.) spicy hot-dipped into mustard & then seeds and 2.) sweet dipped into the marinade.

Notes
  1. If your pieces end up weighing more than a lb. add 1-2 minutes per cooking cycle. As I said, you do not want to over cook it.
  2. I bought a 4 lb. roast as I wanted to try some other different things with it. If you buy about 7"-8" of whole roast and cut it in half you should be good to go.
  3. If you do it carefully, cooking the meat should work well on an outside BBQ grill.
  4. This is another great communal dining experience.
  5. Do not attempt to use a Pork Tenderloin as it would cook far to quickly to get a char and would end up like shoe leather. My opinion is that the loin is the perfect meat.
  6. Please DO NOT try to cook the pork loin whole-it will not work-it needs to be cut into the 2 pieces.
  7. Nutritionals include everything seen.
  8. Geez Louise, this is such good eats.

Low Carb Bulgogi

Low Carb BulgogiLow Carb BulgogiLow Carb BulgogiLow Carb Bulgogi. Bulgogi is a rather sweet & spicy Korean dish and a favorite among restaurant goers.  The good news is you can have it both low carb and sweet.  It is fried in a blitzing hot pan and perfect for cast iron either in the kitchen or on the grill.  It is prepped quickly and cooked very quickly so is ideal for the busy cook.  Bulgogi is often referred to as a Korean BBQ but to my mind it is not.  The meat used should be a high quality nearly slivered, if not shaved steak and I hope you can see the slicing I did in the picture.  It’s less than ⅛”  thick which is perfect.  Now don’t attempt to cut any thawed steak as it WILL NOT WORK.  In order to slice meat thinly, it needs to be almost frozen and after slicing let it come to room temperature, especially for low carb bulgogi since you will be frying it very quickly.  The idea is to still have crunchy veggies when you are finished cooking it.

I have included vegetables into mine and I used top of the line meat with Beef Tenderloin.  To make this low carb bulgogi more or less spicy, use more or less chili garlic sauce which I neglected to include in the picture as I though garlic and red pepper flakes would be enough. Oops, wrong.
