Cauliflower Dip

Cauliflower Dip ... you won't believe the taste!
Ketosis alternative to hummus

This alternative took me by pleasant surprise. I was absolutely blown away at how delicious it is. Simplicity is another great benefit. This dip can be made in the time it takes to steam the cauliflower plus  a minute ... serve still warm or cold either is just as yummy.
Don't tell them it's good for them and they'll never know ♡

* Steam about 3 cups cauliflower florets and put them in a bowl.
* Add 3 tablespoons olive oil.
* Add 3 tablespoons lemon juice.
* Add 3 garlic cloves minced.
* Add 1.5 tablespoons tahini.
* Salt to taste.
* Blitz everything together with a stick blender and serve in a flat bowl spread with the back of a spoon to make some holes in to collect the oil and lemon.
* To serve sprinkle lightly with smoky paprika, olive oil and a squeeze of lemon. Apple slices, celery and radish slices for dipping. ENJOY!

Cream of Mushroom Soup with Parsley

Cream of Mushroom Soup with Parsley
This home made soup can be made from scratch and served in about 20 minutes ...
Delicious and nutritious ... If you love mushroom you will love this...
  • In a saucepan melt a large knob of butter and gently fry off until golden either a couple of spring onions, some diced shallots or maybe half a sweet red onion finely chopped.
  • Then add 500grams of sliced mushrooms and sauté for a few minutes until they have softened and  then stir in about a tablespoon of flour and cook this for a further 2 minutes.
  • Gradually blend in 1.5 litres of nice stock of your choice... I have used vegetable because I wanted a vegetarian dish however either chicken or beef would be great... season carefully with salt depending on the stock you have used, fresh cracked black pepper and I have added a large handful of chopped parsley as I love and use fresh herbs in everything I create... it may change the colour of the soup slightly green but a very yummy and nutritious choice.
  • Finally remove from the heat and add 30ml of cream which has been blended with an egg yolk and the juice of 1/2 a lemon and serve.
