Low Carb Kale Chips

Standard

In Holland it isn’t easy to find Kale as a bunch. It is sold just about everywhere, but then the kale is shredded because most of the time it’s eaten in ‘stamppot’, which means together with potato mash and sausage.

But in one store in Rotterdam I found some organic kale, so I bought this to try making kale chips again. Last time they didn’t turn out great. This time they did!

The recipe:

Some kale (I just used 50 grams)

Olive oil

salt.

Preheat the oven on 250F/120C.

Wash and dry the kale. Sprinkle oil over the kale and make sure all the leaves are covered. Use your hands.

Lay the kale in a single layer on an oven plate covered with parchment paper. Sprinkle with salt (not too much, I did this I am sad to say) and put into the preheated oven.

After 20 minutes check how they are doing. If they are crispy, they are ready! If not, leave them for another 5 minutes.

Enjoy!

 

Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Soup

Standard

This meal – because it isn’t just a soup, it fills you up entirely – is so nice!! It is salty, spicy, a little sweet, tart, everything! The creaminess combined with the pieces of chicken is just lovely.

Whenever I eat this soup I put everything except the cilantro, xanthan gum and sriracha sauce in the crockpot in the morning, and in the afternoon I have a great dish ready!

Ingredients: Chicken stock, chicken, cream cheese, cilantro, sriracha sauce and a little xanthan gum. And a crockpot!

I adapted the recipe from the post by Ruled Me: http://www.ruled.me/crockpot-buffalo-chicken-soup/ so feel free to adjust it the way you would like it!

Low Carb – Keto – Waffles

Standard

A great keto breakfast are low carb waffles. There are many recipes to be found on the internet; 2 of them I have tried and fully approved of!

The darker ones are chocolate waffles, the lighter ones were obviously without chocolate. The bottom picture on the right was with some Waldenfarms chocolate sauce though…

Turkish scrambled eggs

Standard

During the holidays in Turkey with my best friend, we spent a lot of time at a particular restaurant on the boulevard. We had breakfast there also a few times, and I saw the owner eat a nice looking dish, and asked him if I could have this as well. It wasn’t on the menu, but it was no problem of course.

It was a simple, but oh so delicious dish! Scramled eggs with some feta melted in. Lovely!

Back home in Holland I have made this dish several times already, a very nice breakfast!
