Thursday Three : Low Carb Recipe Suggestions (8)

Here we are with another 'Thursday Three' of lower carb recipe suggestions.
I hope you enjoy these suggestions 😊

Silky Chocolate Mousse
This tofu mousse is super creamy and nicely soft and firm at the same time.
You won't taste the tofu at all. A serving has about 4 g of net carbs and 8 g protein.
The portions may seem a bit small, but this is very filling …

6 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
concentrated liquid sweetener to taste
More details can be seen here

Winter Green Beef Casserole
During cooler months, you just cannot beat a warming casserole.

Serves 2 / 3
.450kg casserole steak, diced
1 green pepper
1 leek, trimmed
2 (medium sized) courgettes / zucchini
mushrooms, a handful 4 - 6
salt and black pepper for seasoning
mixed herbs
gravy / stock (of choice) about 3/4 pint (to cover meat etc.)
White cabbage to accompany dish
More details can be seen here

Halloumi Fries
These are low carb and gluten free.
Can be made with either almond flour or coconut flour.
Makes eight fries
8.9 oz. Halloumi
3 Tablespoons Almond Flour
(you could also use coconut flour, but almond flour gives a crispier coating)
1/2 teaspoon Oregano
1/2 teaspoon Thyme
1 tablespoon Paprika
1/4 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
3-4 tablespoons Olive oil
More details can be seen here
