Tuesday Trio : Low Carb Recipe Suggestions (7)

It's Tuesday Trio Time
starter choices or light lunches
these recipe suggestions work well for either

Melon and Parma Ham
A gorgeous pairing of two delicate flavours - sweet and juicy melon with smoky slices of Parma ham.
This makes a great starter dish for a dinner party, but could also be enjoyed as a light lunch.

Serves Four
1 honeydew melon
2 x 88g (2oz) packs of Parma ham, torn
50g (2oz) wild rocket*
pinch ground black pepper
4 tsp oil
see more details here

Coconut Camembert
This makes such a lovely lunch, or starter.

Serves 2
½ Camembert cheese,
1 egg, beaten,
2 tbsp. fine desiccated coconut,
olive oil for frying,
30g baby spinach,
5 cherry tomatoes,
10 slices cucumber,
40g berries of your choice,
balsamic vinegar, to serve

Celeriac Remoulade with Charcuterie
Light lunch, or an easy starter, these simple winter flavours combine well and make a colourful dish.
The remoulade, uses celeriac, carrot, and fresh dill. Serve it with some charcuterie.
You may find that many supermarkets have an even better selection at this time of year!

Serves Four
1 celeriac, peeled and grated
1 carrot, peeled and grated
1 tbsp. fresh dill, chopped

2 tbsp. lighter mayonnaise
2 tbsp. half fat crème fraîche
1 small lemon, juiced

I hope you've enjoyed this 'Tuesday Trio'.
I wonder have you a favourite out of these three? It's the Coconut Camembert for me ...

These all sound good. I'm serving potato, zucchini and carrot cakes, fried in the pan with salmon and herb-cream to go with it. I'm hungry now! Valerie

Tom said...

...they all look yummy!

Catarina said...

These are great suggestions! I feel like having the first this very moment. I just happen to have all the ingredients! :)

Jo said...

Well I still haven't tried celeriac but I'm going for the celeriac remoulade with charcuterie because it looks so appetising.

The coconut camenbert sounds particularly good today. Thank you.

Jan - the first recipe is right up my alley. We make a similar salad with peaches in addition to the melon and ham. Delish!

Teresa said...

Interesantes. Buen día.

Nadezda said...

I liked your recipe of Melon and Parma Ham. Sounds tasty. I could cook it although there is no Parma ham but I could take any other ham, couldn't I?

Jeanie said...

They all sound good but that melon and Parma Ham sounds especially delicious. Could one substitute proscuitto for the ham? We can find that but not sure on the Parma.

Sami said...

It's been many years since I had Parma and melon, but my favourite would be the Coconut Camembert for sure!

Ygraine said...

Oh my goodness...this is far too much choice for me...I want them all!!
All three look SO delicious...😊😊

Have a good day!

The last one sounds like a meal I'd enjoy. I can also see it as a side. The melon one sounds good, but it wouldn't taste right without the meat, I'm afraid.

My name is Erika. said...

Oh melon and Parma ham-swoon!

William Kendall said...

I'd go for the second one.
