Low carb chocolate ganache tart

The most amazing chocolate ganache tart and low carb too

The perfect low carb chocolate tart – rich, elegant and satisfying. This is one of those desserts which made me sad in restaurants. It always looked so amazing and yet of course the amount of wheat and sugar it contains made it a guilty pleasure.

But it turns out that with a few tweaks, we can make our own and it tastes every bit as good. Continue reading Low carb chocolate ganache tart

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!

Low carb raspberry cheesecake slices

Low carb cheesecake

 

The brazil nut buttery base is so delicious you could eat this on its own.  You can make these as sweet as you like by adding more stevia/raspberries.

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.
