Indian Samosa Pinwheels

INDIAN SAMOSA PINWHEELS I just fancied a samosa during this last week, so I put together a keto version with a twist on the fathead pizza dough that I use.  I was surprised at how well they turned out, so I’m sharing the recipe here.  You can use your favourite curry powder and although the

Tirokafteri (Spicy Greek Cheese Dip)

TIROKAFTERI  

(Spicy Greek Cheese Dip)

This is a wonderful, thick and chunky, dip that can be spread on keto crackers for a quick and tasty lunch or snack.  This lovely recipe takes just minutes to prepare and the chilli spice level can easily be adjusted to taste.  I like it quite spicy.  The whole pot of Dip is just 15 carbs and covers approximately 30 crackers depending on how much you like to load them!  You just have to decide how to serve it…

Christmas Tiramisu

CHRISTMAS TIRAMISU

This is a Christmas twist on a traditional Italian dessert.  It’s a boozy treat with brandy, orange and Christmas spices you can easily adjust to your own taste.  It can be made within 30 minutes, start to finish, so is ideal for whipping up a quick, but spectacular dessert if friends and family join you for supper.  Only 6.5 carbs per serving, what’s not to like?

Christmas Bread & Butter Pudding

CHRISTMAS BREAD & BUTTER PUDDING

The Christmas spices (and brandy if you choose it) make this family classic extra special.  It’s sweet and warm and comforting and just smells delicious.  Using the ‘Simply The Best Bread Rolls’ recipe earlier in this blog, the carb count is limited to just 6 per portion.  Easy to make, what’s not to love?

Mince Pies with Orange Pastry

MINCE PIES 

I absolutely love mince pies, but they are certainly a huge no, no when following a keto or low-carb diet.  It’s been a challenge to create mincemeat without dried fruit and sugar, so I’ve played around with several recipes and eventually settled on this one.  At just less than 4 carbs per pie, these mince pies are certainly going to satisfy that desire for crispy, sweet, shortcrust pastry and Christmas-spiced fruit filling.

Christmas Muffins with Tangy Frosting

CHRISTMAS MUFFINS with TANGY FROSTING

These lovely muffins taste delicious, are packed with flavour from beautiful, rich, spices and make the whole house smell of Christmas baking.  The recipe makes between 12 and 14 muffins and, together with the frosting, they come in at a nifty 5g of carbs each. Perfect with a cuppa and to have as a staple in the freezer for when visitors arrive.

Hazelnut Chocolate Cake with Salted Caramel Cream

HAZELNUT CHOCOLATE CAKE with SALTED CARAMEL CREAM

This is a deliciously rich, nutty cake, packed with flavour and the most delicate sweetness of salted-caramel in the cream filling and topping.  It’s a recipe I developed from making the keto cake part of my tiramisu and I just know it’s going to be a staple in this house for cake treats.  Although rich and sweet, it only contains 6 carbs per slice!  What’s not to like?

Carrot Cake with Vanilla Frosting

 CARROT CAKE with VANILLA FROSTING

There’s something very comforting about carrot cake.  This is a spicy and moist cake, with a tangy and sweet filling, that offers a richness of flavour and texture that you would not expect from a cake you can eat on a keto or low-carb diet.  With only 5.3 carbs per slice, this is an afternoon tea special you’ll want to make time and time again.

Chicken Garam Masala

CHICKEN GARAM MASALA

Satisfy your spice cravings. If you fancy something exotic that is quick and easy to make, then this lovely Indian dish is a must and only has 10g carbs per serving. It’s one of my go-to favourites and is easily adaptable to transform into delicious Thai curries too (which I’ll detail on separate posts).  I serve it with cauliflower rice and keto naan bread, which I’ll also detail on separate posts.  It’s just like being at your local Indian restaurant!
