So, I posted this picture a few days ago on my LCHF Club instagram account, and have got quite a few requests for the recipe:
Carbonara with zucchini noodles – it is quick, easy and delicious. It doesn’t matter if you are watching your carb intake like I am or not, as it is a wonderful way of getting some extra veg in your diet and making a change to your usual routine.
Last night I made an experiment in my kitchen – an experiment which had fantastic results. I made a pizza without a trace of flour/starch/gluten! I made a cauliflower pizza.
For those of you who are familiar with the LCHF lifestyle – this will be nothing new for you. However for those of you who aren’t, you may ask yourself ‘what is a cauliflower pizza’? Keep Reading
Last Friday I made possibly the easiest and most delicious curry I have made to-date. It was one of those dishes, that when I tasted it, I thought to myself – did I really make that?! It was delicious, and I was excited. Yes, I get incredibly excited when something that tastes so good is made by myself – spatula in hand I did a little jig and then than called C over to taste it. I expected him to break out into a little dance too – naturally that didn’t happen, but he did agree it was delicious. Keep Reading
Happy Friday everyone!
Here is just a quick recipe I wanted to share with you to kick start your weekend! Although, it is so straight-forward it is actually perfect for a mid-week meal. So if like me, you plan your week’s dinner menu the week before, make sure you add this one on to your list :)
The chicken burgers are so juicy and flavourful you will wonder why you don’t make them more often, and the asian greens are so versatile, you can use whatever vegetables you can get your hands on, as the dressing is the real star that will steal the show! Keep Reading
I have come to the realisation during my few months in Brasilia, that things I had taken for granted as staple produce, can be really hard to get a hold of here. Everytime you move to a new country, you expect there to be differences and you may not always be able to get hold of that specific brand or that seasonal vegetable- but I naively thought when it came to fresh produce it was pretty much standard across the board in all developed society – I was wrong!
You know what one of the best things about living in Brasilia is? Churrasco!
Well…. if you are a committed carnivore and foodie that is! :) Keep Reading
As I am sure is the case with most home cooks – I LOVE one tray or one pot cooking. The ease of throwing everything together, bunging it into the oven or on top of the stove and letting it look after itself for a while is wonderful! Not to mention cutting down the washing time (we have no dishwasher in our new apartment…and I feel as though I’m doing the dishes all day long!) Keep Reading
This is an incredibly easy and tasty way of making salmon! I adapted and updated this recipe from my all time favourite British cook Delia Smith in order to make it completely LCHF friendly and I was very impressed with the outcome.
In Delia’s original recipe she uses individual salmon fillets, however I bought an entire side and decided to keep it whole. She also uses breadcrumbs (click here if you would like to see the original recipe), however I used finely chopped walnuts instead, and you know what? I think I prefer this version. The nuts gave the dish a lovely nutty taste as well as a crunchy texture. Keep Reading
There hasn’t been a lot of food blogging going on here at The Travelling Chopsticks, and for this I apologise. However, now that we have settled into Brasilia and there are no massive travel plans until Christmas, be expecting a lot more goodies to come out of our kitchen :)
None of our kitchen stuff has arrived yet – they will most likely be arriving by November! Although with this bloody government shut down, God only knows when I will see my things again (Republicans…can you guys get your shit together and vote!?!) So it means for the time being I am cooking with rather crappy pots and pans, dull kitchen knives and no fancy, schmancy Kitchen Aid! However, I shouldn’t complain, at least I have the basics and with that you really can make anything!
Tonight we made pork chops in a dijon mustard sauce and they were good :)
I saw this recipe in June addition of Bon Appetit. It looked quick, simple and perfect for a mid week meal – I also liked the idea of making a kebab with salmon. C and I tend to buy a large bag of frozen salmon filets from Costco, and slowly work a way through them, but usually we have them as steaks, so I thought this would be fun to try.
