We all like mug cakes but so far I haven't really found one that I really like. This peanut butter mug cake however is delicious and I am sure with a few tweaks this could potentially be the best mug cake ever! And all this with three ingredients!
3 tbsp (45g) of smooth peanut butter
3 tsp sweetener (or to taste)
1 large egg
Mix all ingredients in a large mug and microwave at 900W for one minute.
This is a low carb bread based on quark and it has 6 carbs per slice. I have tried many different low carb bread recipes and I didn't like a single one of them. But this one I love and it can be toasted, too! ?
2 large eggs
500g cooking quark
300g ground almonds
50g Chia seeds
5g baking powder
1 tbsp psyllium husk
Mix all the ingredients and bake at 180C for 40 minutes. Just leave it for longer if it's still too soft. I think the standard bread test can be applied here.
Devilled eggs is fairly easy and cheap dish and perfect for a Keto diet. We normally have it with pork or chicken but it goes nicely with vegetables as well. And for you non-Ketoers out there: devilled eggs are lovely with new potatoes too ?.
6 large eggs, hard boiled
300ml extra thick fresh cream
0.5 small onion, finely chopped
2 tsp of mustard (which one depends on how spicy you like your devilled eggs)
1 tsp coconut oil
Chives, finely chopped
Parsley, finely chopped
Fry the onions in the coconut oil.
Lower the heat and bring the extra thick fresh cream to a gentle simmer. Don't boil it.
Add the mustard and salt and pepper to taste.
You can leave the eggs whole or if they are being little idiots and refuse to peel properly like mine were, then cutting them up is absolutely fine.
Add the eggs and carefully mix with the sauce
Add the chives and decorate with the parsley.
Very easy dish, and I do hope you'll enjoy it! ?
In my family this fat bomb soup is called Odin's Cheese soup. It was invented at a meeting of the Pagan Federation, and it was decided that only Odin himself could possibly stomach this amount of fat... do you want to prove us wrong? Give it a go!
500g beef mince
300g extra thick double cream
200g cheese spread
200g medium cheddar, grated
2 garlic gloves
250g tenderheart cabbage, finely sliced
150ml vegetable stock
1 tsp coconut oil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp majoram
Fry the beef mince and crushed garlic in the coconut oil.
Add the extra thick double cream and simmer for a few minutes before adding the cheese spread. Make sure the cheese spread has melted before adding the grated Cheddar or you might end up with lumps .. and who likes lumps in their soup?
The soup will thicken up quite a bit, so add the vegetable stock to reach the consistency you prefer.
Finally the tenderheart cabbage, then season to taste. Depending on the cheese you use you might not need any additional salt.
I hope you enjoy this soup as much as Odin would !
This dish might not look the most appetising dish, but it is amazing nonetheless! So why don't you give it a try yourself?
300ml extra thick double cream
300g spinach, finely chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 garlic glove, crushed
100g Castella blue cheese
If you use frozen spinach, thaw it thoroughly.
Wash the spinach and chop it.
Add the spinach to a food blender and together with the cream, the onion and the garlic, blend it until you have a smooth paste.
Heat up the creamy spinach in a pot (careful: it does burn easily) and add about half of the blue cheese. Keep storing while the cheese melts. Salt and pepper to taste.
Brown off the chicken breast in a frying pan (optional) and transfer it to a casserole dish.
Top the chicken with the spinach and add the rest of the cheese.
30 mins at 200C - longer if your chicken breast is particularly thick.
I tried LC wraps today filled with chilli con carne and salad. The wraps are made from coconut flour, eggs whites and water.
And... I have to admit I wasn't very keen!
The wraps had a nice texture at first but became fairly dry very quickly.
I will add the recipe anyway, but will hunt for a better recipe:
500g lean beef mince
1,5 large onions, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tsp ground cumin
0,5-1 tsp dried chilli flakes
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp smoked paprika
400g can chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 beef stock cube
Salt and pepper
Fry the mince for 8-10 minutes, add the onions and the garlic and fry for 5 minutes. Add all the remaining ingredients. Stir well and bring to a simmer. Return the mince to the pan and gently boil for 20-30 minutes or until thickened.
Ingredients for the Low Carb Wraps
30g coconut flour
6 egg whites
0,5 tsp cumin
Salt and pepper
Mix all ingredients and mix well in a blender.
Leave to stand for 8-10 minutes for the coconut flour to soak up the moisture.
Heat some oil in a pan and fry like a crepe.
My husband calls this Arabian Chicken because it uses Harissa, but it is actually just a fairly simple chicken bake with tomatoes, Harissa and cheese. Very tasty, slightly spicy and I do hope you'll enjoy it!
400g chicken breast in cubes or strips
400g tinned tomatoes
2 tbsp Harissa paste (e.g. Fnare or Le Phare Du Cap Bon Tunisie)
1 large onion, sliced
2 tbsp extra thick double cream (or thick yoghurt)
3 garlic gloves, crushed
2 medium tomatoes, sliced
50g grated cheese
2 tsp Schwartz Reduced Salt Season-All (not the standard one as this has a different recipe)
0,5 tsp Schwartz Moroccan Spice Mix
Salt & Pepper
Fry of the chicken in some coconut oil, or any other oil that you prefer.
Set aside, and fry off the onions and garlic. Add the tinned tomatoes, the Harissa paste, the spices and cream (yoghurt). Simmer at a low temperature for about 5 minutes before adding the chicken again. Simmer for another 5 minutes.
Add the mixture to casserole dish and evenly distribute the tomatoes on the mixture. Add the cheese and bake in the oven at 200C for about 15 mins.
