CAULIFLOWER CHEESE DAUPHINOISE

IMG_20170402_144129_901

Ingredients

Cauliflower slices

Grated parmesan

Double cream or sour cream

Egg yolk (one egg yolk to every 100 ml double cream)

Salt and black pepper

Method

Slice the cauliflower. I like to blanche  the cauliflower before I use it. Sometimes when I want to finish the meal more quickly I microwave the cauliflower pieces for  a few minutes on medium heat.

Arrange the cauliflower slices in a dish. Season with salt and black pepper. Scatter generously with grated parmesan.

Put another layer and cheese.

Season.

Mix the double cream or sour cream with egg yolks and pour over the cauliflower.

Scatter with grated parmesan and bake at 200C° for 10-15 minutes until the surface turns golden and bubbles.

Enjoy!

Aubergine egg blini with cauliflower and mozzarella

IMG_20170310_131925_824

This is full protein and vegetable breakfast.

The “blini” is made with eggs and aubergine flesh.

This blini is topped with spicy cauliflower stir fried pieces and mozzarella slices.

Finish in your grill until the cheese melts.

If you want to increase the protein, place one poached egg on top of it!

Ingredients

4 eggs

1 medium aubergine

1 cup chopped cauliflower

1 mozzarella sliced

Crispy bacon

Salt, black pepper, chili flakes

Oil

Method

The aubergine blinis.

IMG_20170310_131811_256 bake aubergine in the oven, spoon out the flesh. Put in a bowl with the eggs, season and blend until you have a paste. Fry two pancakes.

Chicken scalloppini with mushrooms

 

IMG_20170218_162819

Another chicken-protein dish of my low carb meal plan.

One chicken breast gives 20-25 g protein.

To make it a little complex I made a mushroom sauce with double cream.

I served with steamed cauliflower florets.

If your meal plan allows, you can serve it with 60 g booked rice or 60 g boiled pasta.

Ingredients

2 chicken breast cut horizontally half

Salt and black pepper

Flour to dust

1 cup sliced mushrooms

2 tbsp chopped onion

2 tsp ginger garlic paste

1 tsp thyme

Salt and black pepper

Red chili flakes

1 beef cube

Double cream

Method

Cut the chicken breast half like a papillion. Pound it to the thickness of five millimeter.

Season with salt and black pepper.

Dust with flour.

Fry the chicken in 1-2 tbsp oil for 1 minutes on both sides.

Remove the chicken. On the oil fry the chopped onion with the ginger garlic paste.

Add the mushrooms and fry for 5 minutes.

Add a little water, the beef cube.

Put the chicken scallop into the sauce.

Simmer for five minutes, add cream or sour cream.

Bring to the boil and remove from the heat.

Enjoy!
