Lately, I’ve been attempting more vegetarian dishes in the hopes of finding foods that Ben and I both can eat. Here’s a dish that has been a big hit with him. I’ve made it twice already and he seems to really enjoy it. 🙂
Let’s not kid ourselves: the crust is the best part of the pumpkin pie. It’s typically the best part of any pie. But, if you’re going keto or low-carb or have thing for self-denial, here’s a pretty tasty alternative.
I like mushrooms. I made soup.
Hey, Keto friends. Do you miss desserts? I miss desserts. I miss them so much. I wanna eat a great big bowl of rocky road ice cream on top of a pair of eclairs, topped with some profiteroles and, oh, I dunno… a tub of hot fudge. That sounds like a nice treat.
Anywho, to scratch that dessert itch, I’ve been experimenting with keto-friendly desserts. Here’s my attempt at a chocolate pudding. It’s super simple, super quick, and requires absolutely no cooking! Let me know what you think!
I love meat. I adore it. There is no time of day – sleeping, showering, jury duty – when I couldn’t go for a nice grass-fed ribeye. But, I acknowledge that there are folks out there who prefer their eats a little less “moo” and a lot more “imperceptible sound of plant growth.” In fact, one of those people has been my boyfriend for the past 17 years. (Life is weird sometimes. I’ve learned to stop asking questions.)
So, for him and several of my similarly meat-averse friends, I’ve decided to attempt some vegetarian keto cooking. This spinach soufflé was my first experiment. I thought it was damn delicious, frankly. That boyfriend guy liked it, too.
I couldn’t think of a clever preamble to this recipe. I considered referencing Food, Inc. and the terror of chickens it instilled in me. Then, I considered a reference to the amazing Jacques Pépin, his apparent love of chicken, and the recently released Jacques Pépin: The Art of Craft from the American Masters series.
But, you know what? This is simple food. Let’s give it a simple post. Fuck it.
I’ve found it pretty easy to get stuck in a ground-meat rut on this Keto diet – it’s cheap and easy and reasonably fatty. So, the other day, I challenged myself to do something a bit more interesting and a lot more photogenic. And, it’s still super easy! Here’s my ground lamb version of the classic Jucy Lucy on a little arugula salad.
