Low-Carb Creamy Broccoli and Leek Soup

Low-Carb Creamy Broccoli and Leek Soup

low-carb creamy broccoli leek soup with baconThis Low-Carb Broccoli and Leek Soup was the perfect fall treat!

Part of my family lives on a farm and they were so kind as to give us some leeks from the garden to cook with.

I haven’t used leeks since my days working at french bakery/patisserie where we would use them in our savoury crepes! They were always so tasty.

I figured this Low-Carb Broccoli and Leek Soup was the perfect opportunity seeing as soups have always been a favourite of mine when the weather starts to get a bit colder.

This soup is SO delicious. It’s rich, creamy and VERY filling. It’s also quite easy to make. Continue reading “Low-Carb Creamy Broccoli and Leek Soup”

Easy Keto Feta Cheese Burgers

Easy Keto Feta Cheese Burgers

IMG_1176IMG_1180Guys..I’m going to be real honest here. I pretty much lived off these burgers and basically ate the entire batch in a day. So..be warned. They are GOOD. Top them with some avocado and tomato and it would be epic! (P.S pictures were not ideal, I wasn’t planning on writing a recipe so I’d already cut into them when the photos were taken so please don’t let that deter you!!)

Ingredients:

-1lb Ground Beef

-1 egg

-85g Feta Cheese

-1/2 tsp salt

-1/4 tsp pepper

-1/2-1 tbsp parsley

-1/4 tsp garlic powder

-1/4 tsp onion powder

-1 tbsp butter

-Additional Butter for frying

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Use your hands to mash everything together.
  2. Form 5 burger patties and set aside. IMG_1176
  3. Heat a large frying pan to medium heat, melt a tbsp or more of butter and place the burgers in the pan(you can repeat steps if using a smaller pan).
  4. Cook COVERED for 4min on the first side then flip, turn heat to low and cook for another 4-8min or until burgers are cooked through on the second side. (It’s best to cook them low and slow after flipping if you have time!)
  5. Remove from pan and serve hot with avocado slices and tomato(bruschetta topping in my previous recipe would be a great addition as well!!) Enjoy!IMG_1180

Keto Lasagna WITH NOODLES!

Keto Lasagna WITH NOODLES!

BEST LASAGNA eVER (1).png

I don’t know where to begin. This lasagna was EVERYTHING.

It tastes BETTER than regular lasagna..BETTER. I am being 100% honest guys. You need to make this like ASAP.

The “noodles” themselves are delicious on their own but pair that with a ton of cheese, meat and sauce…and OMG. That’s all I can say.

I slightly tweaked this recipe from it’s original I found here. (The author, Kyndra is a genius & I give her full credit!)

Ingredients:

Noodles:

    • 2 eggs
    • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
    • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated (I used half real parmesan and half dried)
    • 1 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded (130g)
    • Pinch of each: majoram, thyme, rosemary
    • 1/2 tsp basil
    • 1/2 tsp oregano
    • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
    • 1/4 tsp onion powder
    • 1/4 tsp salt

Filling:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups of lower-carb pasta sauce (I used “Classico Tomato Basil” but added some salt, splenda and basil to taste )
  • 3/4 cup (90g) mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 6 tbsp 2% cottage cheese
  • 1/3 chopped onion
  • 1oz finely chopped green pepper
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • 1/2 tsp chili pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • Pinch of each: majoram, thyme, rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Noodles:

1. Preheat oven to 375° Line a 9×13 baking dish with tinfoil sprayed with oil or parchment paper.

2. In mixing bowl, using a hand mixer, cream together cream cheese and eggs.

3. Next, add Parmesan cheese and spices. Mix to combine.

DSC_0959

4. Fold in mozzarella cheese and mix until well incorporated.

5. Spread the mixture into the baking dish, forming an even layer.

DSC_0957

6. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

7. When the “noodles” are done baking, cool in the fridge for about 20 minutes and then cut into thirds. This makes three perfectly sized “noodle” layers for an 8.5 X 4.5 X 2.5 loaf pan.

DSC_0978DSC_0983

*NOTE: You can also make the noodles ahead of time and store them in your fridge or freezer!)

For The Filling

8. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, combine ground beef, onion, peppers and  your spices. Cook until the meat is browned.

DSC_0966

9. Drain excess fat from pan and add ¾ cup of your sauce to meat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.

DSC_0981

Putting It All Together

10. Pour ¼ cup marinara sauce into bottom of loaf pan. Top with the first “noodle” layer

11. Layer a third of the ground beef mixture. Top with ¼ cup mozzarella cheese and 3 tbsp cottage cheese, and cover with another “noodle” layer. Repeat these steps.

12. Cover the top “noodle” layer with remaining ground beef, and mozzarella cheese.

DSC_0990

13. Sprinkle a little parmesan and basil over top. Bake for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
