I’m back on the LCHF (Low Carb, High Fat) diet this week, and whilst not bored of the usual recipes, I’m always looking to put a twist on an existing meal, after all a boring diet is one which you won’t end up sticking to.
People are always looking for carb substitutes, but nothing quite hits the spot, so I decided to go the other way, also away from the usual salad – as I don’t know about you, but I do tend to get a little bored with the same accompaniments all the time. Bring on the roast peppers, onions, and tomato tossed in a little salt, pepper and some olive oil – just toss the roughly chopped onions and peppers in the salt & pepper, drizzle lightly with the oil, and roast in the oven for around 40 to 45 minutes at 180 degrees centigrade. For the tomato, just cut in a x shape, not all the way down, and drizzle with some oil, placing in the same pan to roast. Some people prefer to cover the roasting pan with foil and then uncover for the last 10 minutes or so, but I’ve never bothered, and they come out just fine for me. You can also sprinkle some marjoram, or perhaps oregano on top for some extra flavour.
The burger… Well either make your own, or carefully choose a burger with a high meat content – 94% or above. Top with a little black pudding and some grated mozzarella & mature cheddar mix. There you have it, a burger feast which is low carb, healthy and most importantly very tasty and different 🙂
Yes, I know there are some carbs in peppers, tomatoes, onions, and black pudding, however this is low carb, not no carb!
