Keto Lavender Panna Cotta

Panna Cotta literally means “set cream” so it’s the perfect low carb dessert! And there is something so special about that beautifully textured and lush first spoonful. You could flavor this with so many different things but lavender is such a lovely ingredient to use and it tastes amazing. This lu ...

Low-Carb Cilantro Pesto

Cilantro. There, I’ve said it. Now I’ll just sit back and wait for the two opposing sides to battle it out. I get it, if you’re one of those people genetically hardwired to not like cilantro, it tastes like soap to you. This is probably not the recipe for you. But to me? Cilantro is fresh and pepp ...

Low-Carb Lemon Myrtle Shortbread

I’ve been playing around with native Australian ingredients lately. I’m amazed at the diversity and range of native spices that I can access that I never knew existed. If you can get your hands on some, try them out for yourselves, it’s a lot of fun! Lemon Myrtle has a fresh lemon and herb flavour. ...

Homemade Pink Sauerkraut

I’ve been trying to get more fermented foods into my daily diet. I brew my own kombucha and love that, but I’d really like to branch out into different types of fermentation. Sauerkraut is a brilliant beginners ferment and the addition of grated beetroot in this one gives it such a pretty, jewel-li ...

Low-Carb Golden Crumbed Cauliflower

I love cauliflower. Any cauliflower. In fact, when I was young we lived quite a distance from the market and it was not unheard of for little ole me to snack away on my poor mother’s freshly purchased cauliflower head during the car ride home. I still adore raw cauliflower, but this yummy “crumbed” ...

Keto Tomato & Goat's Cheese Quiche

Is it a quiche? Is it a tart? Is it a pizza flavoured cheesecake? It’s all of those, and yet a dish all on its own. I make this on a regular basis as a quick and impressive lunch or picnic plate. The crispy crust against the smooth and creamy filling is delicious and sturdy enough to eat with your ...

Low-Carb Chocolate & Cardamom Ganache Tart

As you know, I enjoy mixing sweet and savoury flavours together. Recently a friend of mine gave me the coolest gift, it was a book called the Flavour Thesaurus. It was all about pairing different flavours together. I reached the C’s and read Chocolate and Cardamom and a lightbulb went off in my hea ...

Keto Flipped Pork Belly

I’ve got a love hate relationship with pork crackling. My husband loves it, it’s one of his favourite things. When I was young and carefree, I used to just throw a pork roast in the oven at temperature, until it seemed cooked, with no thought whatsoever as to correct technique or cooking temperatu ...

Keto Chicken Lo Mein

Is there anything better than a lovely bowl of just cooked, tender vegetables and juicy chicken, coated in a delicious sauce? Yep. Adding kelp noodles to the mix. Wow guys, just…wow! I had never even heard of kelp noodles until recently and was hesitant to say the least about trying them. I admit ...

Keto Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole

I’m new to the world of breakfast casseroles. They’re just not a common dish here in Australia, or not to my knowledge anyway. But they’re growing on me. It’s a good way to be able to pre-prepare the dish and then set and forget until you need it. If you’ve got an early start, it’s nice to have br ...

Low-Carb Chocolate & Coconut Custard Tarts

I never used to be much of a fan of coconut. I can remember that my sister used to like those Bounty bars (check out these Keto Bounty Bars), which were basically chocolate coated coconut. I didn’t realise until later in life that there was a god chance that she chose them because she knew that ther ...

Low-Carb Chicken & Herb Terrine

I won’t lie, this recipe takes some forethought, as it needs to set in the fridge overnight. But it is a really tasty and impressive dish to take along to a summer party or potluck, and is actually really simple to make. You just need to plan ahead. You can slice it quite thin to serve on a me ...

Low-Carb Cream of Asparagus Soup

Asparagus. I can never decide what to think about asparagus. I want to love it and I buy those pretty little green spears from the market excitedly, until I remember that generally they disappoint me. I can eat them smothered in hollandaise, or wrapped in bacon, but I kind of feel like if I h ...
