Autumn, the season for Celeriac Soup and Low Carb Foccacia Bread

One of my favourite seasons is Autumn. The past few days here in the UK the mornings have definitely had that ’Autumnal Nip in the Air’ the temperature has dropped, some of the leaves are beginning to change colours and all together you get a different feel about things. Weather permitting, it's a time for getting out and about and enjoying the season, and then returning home to a wonderful bowl of soup and bread ... low carb of course! You may like these two recipe suggestions.

Garlic and Rosemary Foccacia


Anne Aobadia at Diet Doctor site has come up with "a simple way to bake low-carb garlic bread," She says it's, "crispy and delicious as a snack or to go with a soup." With the cooler Autumn days she could be onto a winner - see what you think.

Ingredients
8 servings
2 carbs per serving
1½ cups shredded (grated) mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
1 egg
¾ cup almond flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon garlic powder
Garlic and rosemary butter
2 oz. butter at room temperature
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon rosemary, chopped

Here's a low carb tasty soup, perfect for Autumn/Winter Days
Cream of Celeriac Soup


Celeriac is a great autumn/winter vegetable, it is also a low carbers favourite. I saw this very nice recipe by James Martin, and thought it one to share. It does make a creamy soup, and for an added touch can be served with crispy pancetta and croûtons ... although it does have a nice taste without this ... so it's up to you dear reader whether or not to add the garnish! You can see the recipe here

A soup season delight.

Both sound good...at times like this it would be nice to live closer to a bigger store. Our little local grocery would not carry the celeriac....or leeks...

Looks and sounds delicious.

I wish it felt like autumn here. Today was nearly 35 C. It is still outlandishly HOT here.

Ironically, I just had some homemade foccacia bread recently. This sounds delicious, too.
