Three Lower Carb Recipe Choices : Chicken or Pork or Vegan Option

Chicken Thighs Pan Roasted with a Chive Cream Sauce

I just don't think you can beat chicken, and in particular chicken thighs.
This is such a tasty recipe idea - could be a mid-week hit - see what you think.

Serves Four
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Butter
1 1/4 to 1 1/2 Pounds Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
1/3 Cup Finely Chopped Yellow (white) Onion
1/4 Cup Dry White Wine (use whatever white wine you enjoy drinking for this, a chardonnay is nice)
1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 Cup Chicken Stock
1/2 Cup Heavy (double) Cream
1/4 Cup Chopped Fresh Chives
(Kosher) Salt + Black Pepper
and more here

Pork Loin Steaks with Mozzarella Cheese

I do like to include Pork in my weekly menu plans.
With so many ways to cook and enjoy it, it's a winner.
How about this recipe suggestion.

Serves Four
4 lean thick pork loin steaks (about 2cm (1in) thickness)
50g (2oz) mozzarella cheese or similar, thickly sliced into 4
8 fresh sage leaves
4 slices Parma style ham or streaky bacon
salt and ground black pepper
and more here

Swede/Rutabaga Mash-Pot with Greens, Mushrooms and Tempeh

For those who prefer a meatless meal.
How about this colourful plate of food.
Have a look at the recipe, you may like to give it a try.

Serves 2-3
300-400 gram swede/rutabaga or cauliflower, chopped
a few tablespoons of unsweetened plant milk or cooking cream
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons oil, separated
1 leek, in half rings (you can substitute onion or spring onion)
250 gram button mushrooms, sliced
300 gram raw escarole or lettuce (or boiled kale), shredded
200 gram tempeh, cubed small
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 tablespoon soy sauce
and more here

We eat a lot of chicken, fish and pork with a minimum of beef, so these recipes looked so good and easy is something we really like in a recipe. I just bought some pork cutlets and chicken thighs on on grocery shopping trip, so nice to have a couple of new recipes, Thanks.
