Two of my favorite low carb recipes.....
For those of you who just don’t get along well with carbs, here are two recipes that are delicious and very low carb. I like snacking on these when I get slightly hungry between meals.
Warm Spinach Cheese Dip:
2 - 8 oz. packages of cream cheese, softened, and cut into 1-inch blocks.
1 – 10 oz. package of frozen spinach, thawed, drained.
½ cup – heavy cream or sour cream. ( I use sour cream.)
½ cup – grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
1 clove – garlic, minced
Combine the ingredients in a food processor or beat with an electric mixer. Spoon into a 9 inch pie plate. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. Serve warm with low-carb vegetables and enjoy!
Crepes in a minute
Ready when you need them, these quick-fixers turn any low-carb leftover into a grab-and-go treat. It can be used to fill with tuna salad, a little grounded hamburger with shredded lettuce and cheese. Yummmm I have also used this with left over chicken or beef, lettuce and cheese.
4 TBL. Heavy cream
Salt and pepper, oregano, or sweet dried basil as desired, depending on the low carb stuffing.
2 TBL. Butter or olive oil
Combine the ingredients in a medium bowl. Heat a small amount of butter or olive oil in an 8-inch non-stick frying pan. Pour about ¼ of the mixture into the pan, swirling quickly to cover the bottom with a thin layer. Cook for only a few minutes, until the bottom is brown. Flip gently and lightly brown the other side. Remove from the pan. Repeat for each remaining crepe.
These recipes come from the book: The 7-Day Low-Carb rescue and recovery plan. This is a great book and it has some great recipes. These two recipes are two of my favorites, they are simple and there when you need it.
Have a great weekend everyone.
