Brown Bread
Approx. 54.5 gms per loaf
Ingredients:
1 sachet dry yeast
1/2 tsp sugar (for the yeast)
9.5 fl oz warm water
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
142gms (5oz) gluten flour
35gms (1.25oz) oat flour
106gms (3.75oz) soy flour
35gms (1.25oz) linseed
35gms (1.25oz) coarse unprocessed wheat bran *

By Hand
Empty yeast into a large bowl. Add sugar and water, stir and leave it for 5 minutes. If the yeast "bubbles", it's alive, if not you can start again without wasting the other ingredients. Mix all other dry ingredients together and add to yeast. Knead for at least 5 minutes (more if you can), then place dough in a clean bowl, cover loosely and put in a warm place to rise for 45 mins. Knead again slightly (do not over work this time), then put in loaf tin, cover and leave to rise for another 40 mins. Bake at 190C (380F) for 35-45 mins depending on your oven.

Bread Machine
Empty yeast into bread pan and proceed as above, afterwards adding mixed dry ingredients to yeast. Set machine to basic cycle (3-4 hrs).

* Jordan's Natural Country Bran (can be found in the cereal aisle in Tesco)

Caulitato Pancakes
2 carbs per 100g of cauli. Serves 4
Ingredients:
½ head of cauliflower
Butter
1 egg
Salt & Pepper

Boil or steam 1/2 head of cauliflower until nearly tender. Let it drain for a while.
Nuke in Micro for 2 mins to dry it out a bit, then mash it to the consistency you like.
Add 1 egg, salt and pepper to taste and incorporate that well.
Melt butter in a frying pan and add dollups of the mixture and
flatten it out a bit so that it will cook evenly.

Fry them about 4-5 mins on each side. The trick is not trying to turn
them too quickly because they break up.

If you let them cook well until they are golden brown, they'll
flip nicely. It's a great replacement for potato with steak dinner or roast.
They are good reheated as well.

Moussaka
About 15carbs per serving.
Ingredients:
Olive oil
500 - 750g lamb mince
Half a tin tomatoes
Sundried tomato paste
1tsp ground cinnamon
Splash of red wine
Half an aubergine, cut into 1 inch cubes
Tub of creme fraiche
1 egg
Handful of grated cheese


Heat oil and brown mince in a pan - I use a stainless steel saute pan that will go in the oven (otherwise you will have to transfer to an ovenproof dish later). Add rest of ingredients except creme fraiche, egg and cheese. Bring to a gentle simmer, put lid on and leave it alone for atleast 45 mins. The aubergine needs a long time to get really soft and absorb the richness and flavour of the sauce. You could leave the lid off a bit so some of the water evaporates. When it is ready, you need to plop the creme fraiche in a big bowl and break an egg into it. Get a whisk and give it a good whipping - get some air into it. A big bowl with lots of room is best for this. Add handful of grated cheese and fold it in. Smooth this mixture over the top of your meat sauce. Cook it in a hot oven until the topping has risen slightly and turned golden. It doesn't take long - about 20 mins at gas mark 6.

50g (2ozs) Parmesan cheese
50g (2ozs) fresh basil leaves
15g (½oz) fresh parsley
2 garlic cloves crushed
salt
ground black pepper

Heat 15ml olive oil in a frying pan. Add the chicken breasts and fry gently until breasts are thoroughly cooked (approx. 15 to 20mins). While the chicken is cooking make the pesto. Process all the ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth and well mixed. When cooked remove chicken from pan and cover to keep hot. With the heat reduced slightly, put the pesto in the pan and cook gently, stirring constantly, until the pesto has warmed through.
Pour the pesto over the chicken and garnish with basil leaves.

Pizza
5.2 carbs per slice. Serves 6
Ingredients:

4ozs butter
5 eggs
4ozs Cream Cheese
4ozs H&B Soya Protein Isolate
1tsp salt
1.5tsp baking powder
4ozs ground almonds
1tsp mixed herbs
1 pkt Dolmio Stir In Tomato & Garlic Sauce
8ozs fresh mushrooms sliced
4ozs sliced peppers
8ozs grated cheddar cheese
Free meats of choice

Cream butter and cream cheese, beat in the eggs adding a little of the soya protein isolate if necessary. Mix in ground almonds, salt, herbs, baking powder and sufficient water to make a fairly soft 'sponge'. Spread into a Swiss roll tin or other baking sheet with sides, the size depends on how thin or thick you want the base. I use a full size Swiss roll tin which makes quite a thick base.
Pop into a hot oven (@190C) and cook until risen and golden brown and feels like sponge. Spread the sauce over the base and scatter the other ingredients. Put back into the oven and cook until golden and bubbling, Could be put under the grill at this stage, but as the oven is still hot...

Salmon & Prawn with Courgette Tagliatelle
About 8carbs for whole recipe.
Ingredients:

200g Salmon
100g Prawns
Couple of knobs of butter
100g Mascarpone
100ml cream
200g Courgettes

Put a couple of knobs of butter on the salmon, wrap in foil and cook in the oven. 180ºC for 25 mins.

Put Mascarpone and cream in a pan and heat gently. I used milk and it was just the right consistency, so if using cream it may be better to thin down. Add prawns to liquid and simmer.

Using a potato peeler, ‘peel’ the courgette into ribbons. Melt some more butter in a frying pan, add the courgettes and fry.

When salmon is cooked, break into pieces and add to pan containing prawns. Give a good stir to mix salmon and prawns.

Pour sauce over courgettes in pan, give a good stir. Transfer to plate. I added loads of black pepper and it was gorgeous.

Chocolate Mousse
About 5carbs for the whole recipe. Serves 4.
Ingredients:
200g dark chocolate (4 bars of Carblife Dark chocolate)
3tbsp strong espresso coffee
25g butter
1.5 tbsp dark rum
3 large eggs

Half fill a medium saucepan with water and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat to establish a gentle simmer. Meanwhile, break the chocolate into pieces and place in a bowl with the coffee and butter: you need a bowl that can be suspended over the saucepan of just-simmering water so that the ingredients can melt but not actually come into contact with the water.

Stir occasionally until all the ingredients are amalgamated. Remove the bowl from the pan, stir in the rum and then allow the mixture to cool for a few minutes. Separate the eggs - the yolks into a small bowl without breaking them, and the whites into the bowl of a mixer. While the chocolate mixture is still relatively hot, stir in the egg yolks one by one, mixing in well between each addition, the idea being that the yolks "cook" slightly.

Beat the egg whites until they form firm peaks. Take two tablespoons of the egg white and gently stir them into the chocolate to slacken the mixture. Then fold in the rest with a metal spoon until there are no streaks or pockets of egg white. Pour the chocolate mixture into little pots or ramekins - filling them almost to the brim. Alternatively, pour into a bowl and serve scoops into serving dishes.

Either way, cover individually with a sheet of cling-film and chill in the fridge for at least six hours or overnight.

Chocolate Orange Cheesecake
About 3 carbs per slice. Makes 5 slices
Ingredients:
To make the cake:
2 blocks of Philly cream cheese, softened
3 tbsp cream
1 beaten egg
Sweetener to taste (should stay sweet when heated)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp orange extract
the grated zest of a small orange- optional
3 tbsp - 1/4 cup cocoa (depends on how chocolatey you like it.)

To make the crust:
1/2 cup almond flour
2 tbsp sweetener
1 tbsp cocoa
3 tbsp butter, softened almost till melted
dash of cinnamon (secret ingredient)

Prep time: 15 mins
Bake time: 10mins + 30mins
Chill time: Overnight
Preheat your over to 180 C

1. Combine all crust ingredients in a bowl till well mixed and crumbly. Dump into a small loaf pan (about 8 inches long, 4 inches wide, 3 inches deep-ish) and pat down. If you like a crust with a bit more bite, toast some chopped almonds, and throw them in there too. Bake for 8-10 mins till golden. Let cool slightly.
2. Beat the cream cheese, cream, vanilla, sweetener and egg till thick and fluffy. Remove half of the mixture to another bowl.
3. In the first bowl, add the cocoa, till well mixed. If it looks too light, either put in some more cocoa till the colour looks appealing, or use a dab of professional cake decorating paste colour. Taste it to adjust sweetness to your liking.
4. In the second bowl, add in the orange extract, and orange zest to the cream cheese mixture. Again, if the extract happens to be uncoloured, you can use a dab of orange food colouring. Adjust sweetness.
5. Pour the orange cream cheese mixture over the crust. Top off with the chocolate layer. If you want to get really fancy, you can make a couple of layers alternating.
6. Bake at 180 C for 30 mins, until the top is firm, and has fine cracks.
7. Chill overnight. (This cake really improves the second and third day, when all the flavours intensify and blend.)
8. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream, and a low-carb chocolate chunk on the top.

Lemon Curd
About 7carbs for the whole recipe
Ingredients:
2 lemons
2 eggs
2 oz butter
2 tbsp equivalent sugar substitute

Remove the zest from the lemons (don't get down to the pith) and squeeze the juice out of them. Put juice, zest and other ingredients into a bowl set over a pan with hot water.
Cook over a medium heat, stirring very frequently, and watching carefully. The butter will melt, and a translucent mixture will form. When the mixture starts to thicken and lose its translucency, reduce the heat slightly and keep cooking and stirring until it's about the consistency of cold unbeaten egg white. Remove from the heat. (Like any custard-like mixture, it curdles if overcooked.)
Strain if you like (removes the zest, but the zest does impart flavour). Cool the curd uncovered, then put into jars and store airtight, preferably in the fridge.

 

 
Lemon and Almond Pudding with Fresh Raspberries
About 35 carbs for the whole recipe: Serves 6
Ingredients:
3 lemons
4 whole eggs
175g/6oz caster sugar(sweetener)
¼tsp baking powder
175g/6oz ground almonds

For the lemon syrup (optional)
100ml/3½floz lemon juice
100ml/3½floz stock syrup
finely grated zest of ½ lemon
1 vanilla pod, split
50g/2oz caster sugar
For the raspberry coulis (optional)
225g/8oz fresh raspberries (tinned can also be used)
3-4tbsp/45-60ml stock syrup or 2-3tsp icing sugar

For the garnishes
caster sugar, for rolling vanilla strips (optional)
2-3tbsp ground caramel or icing sugar, for dusting and glazing (optional)
10 raspberries per portion
6-8 scrolls of clotted or whipped cream (optional)

You will need six 8 x 5cm/3½ x 1¾in individual metal rings, well buttered, and a baking tray topped with well-buttered parchment paper, or two 450g/1lb loaf tins, lined with buttered parchment paper (two tins will provide a deeper texture).

Method
1. To cook the lemons, cover with cold water, bring to the simmer and cook for a minimum of 1 hour. Remove from the water, saving 100ml/3½floz of the liquor, and cut into quarters, allowing to drain well. Remove the pips and blitz with the saved liquor to a smooth, thick puree in a food processor or liquidizer. Push through a sieve and leave to cool.
2. Pre-heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Whisk the eggs and sugar together in an electric mixer to a thick sabayon (similar to lightly whipped cream). This may well take 6-8 minutes to achieve. While this is whisking, add the baking powder to the ground almonds, rubbing the mix between your thumb and forefinger to a smooth texture.
3. Add the lemon puree to the sabayon, followed by the almonds. Whisk slowly for 1 minute. This will help take some air out of the mix, preventing it from souffleing in the oven.
4. Spoon into the buttered moulds on a parchment-lined baking tray, filling each three-quarters full, or divide between the papered loaf tins. Place in the pre-heated oven and bake for 30-35 minutes (the loaves will need 45-50 minutes).
5. Remove from the oven and leave to cool before removing the moulds. The sponges can now be kept in an airtight container for several days until needed. To re-heat, place individual puddings in a microwave for 20-30 seconds until warmed through.
6. For the lemon syrup, bring all the ingredients to the boil and cook on a rapid simmer to a thick consistency. Remove the vanilla pod and use the syrup as it is, or strain through a sieve to remove the zest. Serve at room temperature.
7. To make the raspberry coulis, liquidize the fruits with the syrup or sugar, then push through a sieve; the sauce is now ready to use.
8. To make ‘vanilla sticks’ to use as a garnish (optional), rinse the split pod removed from the syrup. Press flat with a ruler before cutting with a sharp knife into extra fine strips. These can now be rolled in caster sugar and left to dry.
9. To finish the dessert, it’s best to glaze the puddings on their flat base; this will also provide the perfect platform on which to sit the clotted/whipped cream. The ground caramel or icing sugar (the caramel giving an instant bitter-sweet flavour) can be sprinkled through a tea strainer or sieved on top of the puddings, before glazing with a gas gun or under a pre-heated grill. If using icing sugar for a crunchy top, three layers will be needed. Place each pudding in the centre of a plate. The raspberries can now be positioned in pairs at five spots around the dessert, spooning 2tsp of coulis, if using, on each. Drizzle the syrup around, if using (a squeezy bottle will make this job a lot easier), before finishing with a scroll of clotted cream or whipped cream, if using, on top of each dessert. The fine vanilla stick can now be placed on top of the cream.

Little Pots of Chocolate
About 9carbs for the whole recipe, makes 6 portions
Ingredients:
6oz or 150gr plain chocolate (I used 2 x 85gr bars Carblife dark)
1/2 pt or 300 ml double cream
1 egg
salt
Vanilla Extract

Break the chocolate into small pieces into a blender. Heat the cream to just below boiling point. Pour into the blender, and whizz until the chocolate is melted. Add in a small pinch of salt, the extract and the egg. Whizz again for about 15 seconds. Pour into four or six ramekins. Cool, cover, and chill overnight. Will last four days in the fridge (some hopes), getting more fudge-like. Sprinkle with cocoa powder to serve.

Low Carb Profiteroles
Makes at least 24 – ½ carb each
Ingredients:
30g Ground Almonds
30g Gluten Flour
50g Unsalted Butter
1 Pack sweetener
2 Eggs well beaten
150ml (5floz Water)

Chocolate sauce
50g Carblife or Boots Dark Chocolate
50g Unsalted Butter
150g Double Cream - Whipped

Preheat oven to at 400 F / 200 C.

Measure out the flours and sweetener and combine in a bowl or jug.
Put water in medium saucepan together with butter. As soon as the butter is melted and the mixture comes to a boil turn off the heat immediately. Tip all the flour in at once, beating vigorously with an electric hand whisk until you have a smooth ball of paste and the sides of the saucepan are clean.

Add the beaten eggs a little at a time, mixing in thoroughly before adding more. Beat until you have a smooth glossy paste.

Place teaspoons on a greased baking sheet ( or mini muffin tins) and bake for 10 minutes. Increase temp to 425 F / 225 C and bake for a further 15-20 minutes until buns are crisp, light and golden. ( My fan oven needs a lot less than this) Pierce the sides and let cool on a rack.

Split and fill with cream.

Melt chocolate and butter ( adding sweetener if necessary) and pour over.
