Fathead Pizza!

Standard

In the long time that I have been eating Low Carb and searching the internet for recipes, I have seen the name fathead come by a lot, but never quite knew what it was.

Until today. I found a recipe for a fathead pizza base, made with cheese and almond flour, and it turned out great!!

Here’s the recipe:

170 grams of grated cheese, mozzarella or gouda;

85 grams of almond flour

1 egg

2 T creamcheese

 

First melt the cheeses in the microwave and stir well. After that add the almond flour and the egg and mix well again.

Put the mixture (with some herbs, garlic, salt/pepper) on a baking tray with a baking sheet at flatten it. Bake at 220C for 12-15 minutes, turn over and bake for another 5-10 minutes.

This is your pizza base. You can put just about anything you want on this pizza, just bake it for another 5-10 minutes and then your pizza is ready!

Diner for the in-laws

Standard

Today my husband’s parents came from the North of Holland to visit us for the day. Very nice, and my inlaws always enjoy the things I cook, so I put some thinking in the menu for the evening.

I went for a vegetarian menu.

As starting course I decided on beet with pear and goat’s cheese and rocket. See picture… The sweetness of the pear and beets combined very well with the saltyness of the goats cheese and little sharpness of the rocket.

As a main course I made spaghetti a’ll aglio e olio, accompanied with fresh pesto, and insalata caprese. As a side dish a made bread with pesto and mozarella. This also tasted very good! Again some pictures…

For dessert a finally made what I’ve been wanting to make for a long time now: Eton Mess! I made some delicious meringues and made strawberry sauce. Combined with whipped cream it made a luxurious dessert! And another picture…

Because I expected that the kids wouldn’t appreciate the starter, I thought of a special “kids-starter” which the kids loved! I took some pieces of cucumber and made star-shaped pieces of cheese:
