Tuesday Trio : Low Carb Recipe Suggestions (6)

It's Tuesday Trio Time
and it features low carb vegetable side dishes,
though some may prefer to serve them as a main - the choice is yours.

Roasted Vegetables Tricolore
This is a beautiful, and most colourful, side dish. Easy-to-make with lots of good flavour.
Choose to serve it with either meat, chicken or fish ...
But perhaps if you just like vegetables, enjoy the dish by itself!

Ingredients
Serves Four
6g carbs per serving
300 g brussels sprouts
150 g cherry tomatoes
150 g mushrooms
2⁄3 teaspoon sea salt
1⁄3 teaspoon ground black pepper
2⁄3 teaspoon dried rosemary or dried thyme
80 ml olive oil

Celeriac and Walnut Gratin : Vegetarian 
This dish does make a great vegetarian main meal, or you can have it as a side dish

Ingredients
Serves 4 - 6
4g carbs per serving
1 large celeriac
2 tbsp. walnut oil
300ml vegetable stock*
handful chopped walnuts
100g blue cheese, such as Bleu d'Auvergne or Stilton
(* you can also reduce the amount of vegetable stock slightly and add crème fraiche,
it makes for a slightly creamier texture)

Green Beans with Garlic and Almonds : Low Carb Side Dish
This is a wonderfully green, crispy and crunchy low-carb side dish.
Green beans always go great with a nice Sunday roast, or perhaps a Thanksgiving, or Christmas turkey!

Ingredients
Serves Six
7g carbs per serving
4 garlic cloves
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons olive oil
700 g fresh green beans
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
80 ml almonds, chopped

The vegetables look great.

Presently, my mind, and appetite are mostly leaning towards salads, fresh fruit and raw nuts....as little cooking and hot meals as possible. It's pretty hot here...summer has arrived early.
