Yummy tuna wok

Woks are easy and quick šŸ™‚ i tried fresh tuna for the first time in my life and it turned out perfect! Even the cooking bit was absolute joy from the very beginning with all the bright colours. Very pretty šŸ˜€

 

ingredients (the amounts and even theĀ ingredientsĀ can vary, be creative!)

  • 200g fresh tuna
  • half of a red bell pepper
  • 150g red cabbage

+ seasoningĀ (i put: salt, some chili, herbs)

Chop the ingredients, heat the oil in a pan, pop the ingredients in and wok em in high heat until ready. You may want to consider what goes first if the ingredients vary in cooking time (i put cabbage first, then bell pepper and fish). Season according to your own taste. In my dish there were loads of good flavours there already so i didn’t want to put too much seasoning to spoil them so i seasoned it nicely and lightly with salt and herbs and gave it a nice little kick from chili.

andĀ VoilĆ ! šŸ˜€

Low carb bread

As i’ve been rolling this low carb lifestyle for a while now there are certain things that i miss in the “old” eating habits. Bread being one of them. One day i bumped into a marvellous recipe which allowed me to put bread back into my life šŸ™‚

  • 2 eggs
  • 1tbsp psyllium fibre
  • 1tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • random amount of seedsĀ (i put abt 1 tbsp hemp seeds but you can use what ever you wish)
  • about 100 g cheese (grated)
  • 1,5-2 tsp baking powder

Mix em all together and form your breads on the oven tray. The texture should be quite soft and more liquid than the regular bread dough yet solid enough to not go all flat. You can make it go lighter by adding one more egg or even some natural yoghurt and more solid by adding more almond flour etc. By trying out the different consistencies you can find the one that works best for you. Bake in the oven (225Ā°C) until they get a nice amount of color (this doesn’t take a very long time so be ready šŸ™‚ ).

enjoy:)

I always kind ofĀ resentedĀ meatloaf. Ā Those biiiiig chunks of tasteless and dry meat, but after a little surfing for cool minced meat recipes i found some cool recipes and combined the best bits to make one surely tasty meatloaf.

  • 400g minced lamb meat
  • an egg
  • 50 g grated cheese
  • 4 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • salt
  • pepper
  • parsley
  • other spices according to your taste

Mix the ingredients well. take half of it and mold it into the bottom half of the loaf.

  • 100g cheese
  • 2 boiled eggs
  • ~8 bacon strips

Peel the eggs and place them and cheese on top of the bottom part of the loaf and put the upper half in place. Form into a nice loaf. Top it with the bacon strips.

And then bake in the oven at 175Ā°C for 30 to 45 min, or until it is nice and ready.

You can serve it with a nice salad and some cottage cheese, for example.

Enjoy:)

Here’s a little more low carb version of the good ole shepards pie. Instead of mashed potato im using cauliflower and instead of lamb some moose meat. Although there is absolutely no reason why you can’t use the lamb here too, so if you’re into lamb then go for it. Here’s how it goes:

  • 400g minced moose meat
  • 400g cauliflower ( i added some broccoli too to get a nice bit of color)
  • 30 g butter
  • 15 g olive oil for frying the meat
  • 100g grated cheese
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic
  • spices according to taste

Boil the cauliflower bits in salted water until soft, mash them and add most of the cheese, butter and 3 crushed garlic cloves and mix them well. or take a short cut here and just throw them all together without mashing and crushing and use a blender instead:)

Fry the minced meat in olive oil with rest of the garlic and some spices (f. ex. salt,Ā white pepper, chili…)

Put the meat in a dish and next the mash, top it with some cheese and pop it in the oven at 200Ā°C for about half an hour (or until cheese is nice and a little brown here and there).
