Baked broccoli spears in parma ham

Baked broccoli spears in parma ham

I’ve discovered that this classic asparagus appetiser works equally well with tenderstem broccoli. Garlicky mayonnaise would be wonderful. Or even the Delicious Aubergine Dip.

Classic cauliflower dough pizza

DSCF9243

If you have been low-carbing for even a few weeks, you will no doubt be aware of the many talents possessed by the cauliflower. A pizza crust is one of them. What it lacks in crispiness, it makes up for in tastiness. Not a bad swap in my book.

Ingredients
  1. 140g grated cauliflower
  2. 15g parmesan cheese
  3. 1 tbs soy flour
  4. 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  5. 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  6. 1/2 beaten egg
  7. 1 tsp pesto
  8. 30g chorizo or cooked bacon, chopped
  9. 30g courgette, sliced thinly
  10. 45g cheddar cheese, grated
Instructions
  1. Steam the grated cauliflower until soft. Cool for 5 minutes then use a clean teatowel or a piece of muslin to wring out the excess water.
  2. Mix with the parmesan, the soy flour, the mustard, the garlic salt and the egg.
  3. Line a baking sheet with foil and brush with groundnut oil.
  4. Use your hands to create a pizza base shape with the dough (it will be quite wet) on the baking sheet.
  5. Bake at 220 deg C for 10-15 minutes until slightly brown at the edges.
  6. Sprinkle the remaining ingredients on the top of the base and return to the oven for 10 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool for a few minutes before attempting to remove the pizza from the foil - it is more delicate than the standard wheat flour base!

Ingredients
  1. 360g chicken breasts (2 breasts)
  2. 2 tbp rapeseed oil
  3. 30g ground almonds
  4. 20g grated parmesan
  5. 1/2 tsp jerk chicken seasoning
  6. 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  7. 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  8. 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  9. 1/4 cumin
Instructions
  1. Slice the chicken into long strips, around the size of your thumb.
  2. Coat liberally in the oil.
  3. Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl and then toss the chicken into it, making sure each strip is completely covered.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes at 190 deg C on a baking sheet which has been well oiled.
Notes
  1. Deep frying these goujons would give you a crispier coating but the ground almonds will burn quickly if you don't keep an eye on them.

These take virtually no preparation and minutes to cook. They also taste amazing.

Ingredients
  1. 130g butter, melted and cooled
  2. 60g cocoa powder
  3. 1/2 tsp baking powder
  4. 6 eggs
  5. 3 tsp vanilla extract
  6. 120g cream cheese
  7. 20g soy flour
  8. 7.5g Stevia
Instructions
  1. Whisk all the ingredients together really well.
  2. Bake in a baking tin, buttered and lined with greaseproof paper. My tin is 17x26cm.
  3. Bake for 20 mins at 180 deg C.
  4. Cool and slice into 12.
Notes
  1. These freeze really well and are actually better eaten the following day. You can make them without the soy flour, but they have more the texture of a chocolate baked cheesecake.
  2. If you are new to low-carbing, you may prefer your brownies a bit sweeter and will need to add more Stevia. If you like really bitter chocolate, 7.5g may be enough.
