Low Carb Cracker Substitutes

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Line baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper.

Add cheese slices leaving about 1/4 inch between. Slices about 1 1/2 x 1 1/2

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until browned.

Using a paper towel, dab each cheese slice to absorb the oil.

Very low carb pumpkin pie

•1 15 oz can pumpkin
•2 eggs
•2/3 cup unsweetened soy milk (or unsweetened almond milk, milk, or cream - milk has more carbs, so adjust)
•1/3 cup cream
•1 C sugar equivalent from artificial sweetener (zero-carb sweetener such as liquid sucralose preferred)
•1 teaspoon dark molasses (optional)
•2 teaspoon cinnamon
•1 scant teaspoon nutmeg
•1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
•Pinch cloves
•1/4 t salt

Preparation:

As an artificial sweetener, I prefer a form of liquid sucralose, as powdered types have more carbs and sometimes an off-taste.

1) Preheat oven to 425 F. (important)

2) Dump all the ingredients into a food processor or blender and whirl to blend.

3) Pour into the crust.

4) Put the pie in the oven and immediately turn the oven down to 375 F. In 15 minutes, turn the oven down to 300 F. (This cooks the crust, so it isn't soggy, but then allows the custard to bake more slowly.) Bake until almost set in the middle, about 30 to 40 minutes more. If it starts to crack a bit around the edges, it's probably ready

Crust

•1 cup pecan pieces (frozen)
•2 T melted butter
•2 T sugar equivalent from artificial sweetener of your choice

Preparation:

1. Take pecans out of the freezer and measure them into a food processor (you can use a blender, but be careful not to blend them down too small). Pulse the processor until the largest pieces are as big as lentils or split peas.

2. Add the butter and the sweetener (I prefer "liquid Splenda"). Blend until it's mixed evenly.

3. Dump it into a pie pan, and push with your fingers to cover the bottom and sides. It should be the right consistency to mold the crust to the pie pan evenly.

SPAGHETTI SQUASH LO MEIN


1 medium spaghetti squash
1 tablespoon olive oil
1⁄4 cup sesame oil
1 clove fresh garlic, thinly sliced
1⁄2 cup teriyaki sauce (not thick marinade, we use Kikkoman’s brand)
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
sesame seeds as garnish
SPECIAL EQUIPMENT: wok or large sauté pan and 12 quart stock pot

directions
1. Cook the spaghetti squash by cutting in half length wise, scraping away the seeds from the center, and boiling the two halves in a large pot for around 20 to 25 minutes, until the pulp pulls away in strands with a fork.

2. Place a wok or large sauté pan over high heat with the olive oil and sesame oil. Add the fresh sliced garlic and cook for just a few seconds to lightly brown the garlic.

3. Use a fork to remove the cooked spaghetti squash in strands and add to the hot pan cooking for about 2 minutes while stirring or tossing carefully.

4. Remove from heat and serve garnished with sesame seeds if desired.

Tips:
Add mushrooms, bean sprouts and bell peppers for a Low Mein feast. Dare I say add shrimp? Yes, add shrimp!
20 min. in a microwave will also cook squash, I add shredded chicken to this also

PEPPERONI CHIPS
6 ounces thin-sliced pepperoni

CHEESE CRACKERS
2 slices deluxe American cheese (not “processed cheese food”)
½ teaspoon salt
1⁄8 teaspoon chili powder
1⁄8 teaspoon garlic powder

PEPPERONI CHIPS
1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Lay the pepperoni slices in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

2. Remove the pan from the oven and soak up the excess grease by pressing paper towels against the pepperoni chips. Return the pan to the oven and bake an additional 2 to 4 minutes, until the pepperoni slices are very crispy.

EASY CHEESE CRACKERS
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Stack the slices of American cheese and cut them into 16 very small squares.

3. Separate the cheese squares and transfer them to a small bowl. Add the salt, chili powder, and garlic powder, and toss to combine.

4. Arrange the 32 cheese pieces in 4 rows of 8 on the parchment paper-lined baking sheet, leaving as much space in between each as possible. (A silicone baking mat works perfectly here and you can use it over and over.)

5. Bake until they puff up, are well browned (almost burnt), and crispy, about 7 to 8 minutes. If undercooked, they’ll be soggy, so don’t be afraid to check them and put them back in for more time, if needed.

Cool the crackers completely before serving since they will crisp up as they cool. Store on the counter in an airtight container for as long as a few days. Enjoy!

Baked Cauliflower Head

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 head cauliflower

1½ cups plain Greek yogurt

1 lime, zested and juiced

2 tablespoons chile powder

1 tablespoon cumin

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon curry powder

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon black pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 400° and lightly grease a small baking sheet with vegetable oil. Set aside.

2. Trim the base of the cauliflower to remove any green leaves and the woody stem.

3. In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt with the lime zest and juice, chile powder, cumin, garlic powder, curry powder, salt and pepper.

4. Dunk the cauliflower into the bowl and use a brush or your hands to smear the marinade evenly over its surface. (Excess marinade can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to three days and used with meat, fish or other veggies.)

5. Place the cauliflower on the prepared baking sheet and roast until the surface is dry and lightly browned, 30 to 40 minutes. The marinade will make a crust on the surface of the cauliflower.

6. Let the cauliflower cool for 10 minutes before cutting it into wedges and serving alongside a big green salad.

• 1 pint heavy cream
• 1 8oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
