Home fries made lower carb by using rutabaga rather than starchy potatoes. This can be made vegetarian or vegan based on what you add to the 'bagas while they are cooking. Came up with this last night as a way to use up the other half of the large rutabaga I was using in soup. My husband prefers rutabaga to turnip (as we recently discovered, having never had them before), so I sub them a lot for potatoes now to cut back on carbs.
Invented this today trying to figure out something for lunch. Ingredients can easily be substituted to make this vegetarian or vegan. Simply use vegetable broth and soy cheese equivalents. Much lower carb than traditional spaghetti. I do the spaghetti squash in the microwave, which is super easy. Cut in half, scrape the seeds, then cook until it breaks into strands easily with a fork. I guessed at the spice amounts, so adjust to your own taste. Prep time includes pressing and draining tofu.
This was in an email from Trader Joe's for the holidays. (Best little store ever!) I made it today for Thanksgiving and it's delicious! Putting on here to share and for safe keeping. One note: My sweet potatoes took quite a bit longer to roast and be tender so just check them and cook until they are done. I might have used too small a pan because I had to stir them and keep cooking past the time.
This was posted in StL Today recently. For those not familiar, Kaldi's is a wonderful coffee shop, with equally wonderful desserts. Their gooey butter cake was voted the favorite in St. Louis. I have made this recipe, and the top is a little more custard like than I think Kaldi's is, but it's still a great cake.
I made this up this morning to dress up quick cooking grits... I double the cook time to make them creamy, and added eggs, bacon bits, and shredded cheese while cooking. It turned out great! It's pretty flexible, I think, and you could use minced sauteed onion for a different flavor, sliced bacon fried and crumbled, different cheeses, and garnish with what you like. If I'd had them, I would have garnished with green onions as well.
My mom and I made this up when I was visiting last weekend... High protein and very tasty. She ate this with pork rinds (low carber) while I had it on bread. Other seasonings and amounts can be added to your taste, I'm sure. Tuna salads tend to be flexible. Not sure of the yield so I guessed, since I didn't measure.
I was trying to find something to snack on one night, and I remembered reading another recipe about strawberries dipped in brown sugar, so I came up with this. Amounts are approximate, since you really just dip the cut sides of the strawberries in the sugar, and spread cream cheese on crackers... so it depends on how much sugar and cream cheese you like. This is the first recipe I have published on here, mostly because it's the kind of easy thing I like to find on the site and I didn't see anything like it.
