Another LCHF meal idea!

imageI’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.…

Recipe: Cheesy Tandoori Stuffed Peppers

imageThis recipe is a twist on the Triple Cheese Tandoori Mushrooms, almost the same, however using a little twist of tomato and way more garlic Can you have too much garlic?.

Recipe: Tandoori Chicken

image

This Tandoori chicken dish is super easy to make, and only takes around 10-15 minutes prep in total. You may have had something like this from an Indian Takeaway, maybe labelled as a Shashlik (Although that is cooked slightly differently), however probably down simply as Tandoori Chicken.

Serves 2. Don’t be put off this recipe for marinade times, you can do anything from 1 hour to 24 hours, obviously the longer the marinade the better, but don’t be pressured into thinking it has to be an age, it doesn’t!…

Recipe: Creamy Garlic Chilli Lime Chicken

imageWhere do I start with this one!? This is a recipe of two halves which complement each other perfectly. Depending on how you serve this, it can be a LCHF dish.

On one half you have perfectly seared and cooked butterfly chicken, and on the other a creamy zesty sauce. I suppose you could do this with chicken pieces, or bashed-flat chicken breasts, but I thought the butterfly style would be best!…
