Low carb cauliflower flax crust pizza

October 26, 2013

20131026-171530.jpg

4 dl grated cauliflower
1/2-1dl flax seed flour
2 tbsp hamp seed flour (very low carb, but can be excludedl)
2 eggs
1 dl grated regular cheese or Parmesan
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1-4 tsp herbs de Provence
1/2 tsp salt

I used a food processor to grate the cauliflower (but a regular grater works fine), to make the cauliflower rice. Microwave or heat/fry the cauliflower rice to rid some of the water, transfer to a bole and drizzle over the dry ingredients the cheese and then mix in the two eggs. Blend thoroughly and transfer to a baking paper and flatten as much as possible. Bake in the oven at high temperature for 10 minutes, then at lower temperature until goldenish crusty.
I used regular tomato pure spread, seasoned this with garlic powder, italian dried herbs, a little salt and a pinch of chilli, a pinch of stevia (for just a little sweetness) and topped this with cooked veggies like red bell peppers and mushrooms, red onion, topped off with thin salami slices and grated cheese. Bake again until the cheese has melted.
If you don’t want to ruin the crust a trick is to spread a very thin layer of oil directly in the crust when baked and after this add the tomato purée and topping. That way the water in the purée wont penetrate the crust.

Perfect Fried egg with bacon bits and parsley mint sprinkled tomato

August 28, 2013

20130828-152928.jpgAdd some smoked bacon bits to a medium hot dry pan, let them soften and fry slowly (3 min).

Add some butter and switch up the burner. As the butter is frying quickly add in two eggs, sprinkle with salt and pepper and fry at high temperature! Move around with a spatula to avoid burning and so that the egg white get enough heat and so the butter is scooped up on the egg. High temperature is key!

Chop up some tomatoes, sprinkle with some olive oil, chopped up fresh mint, parsley, pepper and a pinch of sea salt.

All you need to know about Diabetes (in Swedish)

Here is a link to one of my favorite health blogs. Diet Doctor (the name does not refer to slimming down as much as diets that makes you strong and healthy, aka slim?).

Diabetes

In a nutshell, eating sugar and high starch foods is not the key.

LCHF – Low carb porridge

January 21, 2013

Two portions:

Add 4-5 eggs in a bole with 1-1.5 dl double cream and 2-3 table spoons of almond four (and in my case a little course hazelnut flour from Lidl). Whip / beat the mixture properly and add in flavors such as ground cardamom (two pinches), cinnamon, vanilla extract/powder, potentially 2-3 drops of liquid Stevia. Whisk it all together.

Add 1 table spoon of butter to a pan and 1 tbs of coconut oil and let it melt. Add in the blend and stir while cooking until it looks like porridge.

Serve with some extra cinnamon on top, a little butter if you like and (whole fat) milk or coconut milk, or sugar free blackberry jam.

Next time I try this I will make sure one can taste the cardamon and maybe try adding in some baking fiber like Fibrex, or coconut flakes, etc.

Cauliflower risotto with low carb and very tasty meatballs

December 22, 2012

20121222-204612.jpg

minced meat – 50% pork 50% beef

1 egg

Black pepper

Herbs the Provance- if you like

chicken stock or some other stock

1/2 tsp baking soda (sounds odd, but it makes them fluffier..)

Add the melted chicken stock and some of the baking soda to the minced meat and work this in to the meat with a fork. Salt brings out the proteins and makes the meat merge.. and form a dough.. This takes at least 10 minutes.

Add in the egg and pepper and blend again.

Form the meatballs and fry in a medium hot pan with a good amount of (preferably flavorless) coconut oil and butter. When they have a good crust lower temperature.

Zucchini spagetti bolognese with pesto and parmesane

December 18, 2012

Make “spaghetti” from vegetables like zucchini, daikon (rättika), carrots, etc. This is done with a so called spiraler. I bought mine here for 399 SEK  (roughly 40 EUR).

Below zucchini spaghetti served with a typical bolognese topping and some home made basil pesto.
