Thai meal soup, low carb vegan

I love meal soups. They are quick and easy to make, and you can chuck in any ingredients you have lying around. This Thai-ish version is nice to use up all the odd ends of veggies that are lying around in your fridge. Peppers, selery, cauliflower, broccoli, carrot, leeks, rutabaga, parship and many others work well in this. If you don't have some of the veggies in the ingredient list, just substitute something else.

Ingredients

  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1 bell pepper, in strips
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2-3 handfuls of green beans, peas or broccoli, in small pieces
  • 2-3 handfuls of cauliflower, in small pieces
  • 1 1/2 cup (1 can) cooked chickpeas (optional, if the carb count doesn't have to be super low)
  • 1 heaping teaspoon unchicken or vegetable bouillon powder
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons (green) Thaiy currypaste
  • 3 oz /100 g creamed coconut in a block (or replace half the water with a can of coconut milk)
  • 16 oz / 500 g firm or extra firm tofu, cubed

Instructions

Sauté the onion in a little oil until it is translucent. Add the bell pepper and garlic and sauté for another minute. Add the green beans, cauliflower, optional chickpeas, bouillon and water. Bring to a boil and cook for 6-7 minutes until the veggies are done. Stir in the currypaste and creamed coconut.

In the mean time, fry up the tofu cubes in some oil until they are crispy and golden brown. Divide the soup over 3 or 4 bowls and sprinkle the tofu on top.

TVP breakfast porridge Textured vegetable protein (dry soy granules) are usually used in savory recipes as a stand-in for ground meat, but it actually has a neutral flavor which means they can also be used in sweet recipes! If you cook them with soy or almond milk, sweetener and some cinnamon, they actually taste quite similar to oatmeal, […]

Vegan mayo, low carb Depending on where you live, vegan mayo is getting easier to find in stores, but it often contains quite a lot of sugar and other carbs. This soymilk based mayo is super easy to make and contains almost no carbohydrate. It's perfect for salad dressings, spreading on stuff and dipping your favorite veggies in.

Silken chocolate mousse, low carb vegan This tofu mousse is a real life saver if you are craving low carb dessert. It’s super creamy and nicely soft and firm at the same time. You won’t taste the tofu at all. If you want a stronger chocolate flavor, add more tofu. A serving has about 4 g of net carbs and 8 […]

Low carb vegan nut&seed granola This granola is David's favorite breakfast. He has been eating this every morning for as long as three years or so. It's amazing! It is gluten free, and paleo friendly. I guess you could also make it raw, but I like a little toasty flavor to it.

Raw paleo vegan low carb cigköfte We don't have many vegan take-away option in our town, but we do have a Çiğköftem. This Turkish chain serves çiğköfte, little cold 'meat' rolls made of bulgur grains, walnuts, tomato paste and herbs that are accidentally vegan. The köfte are very delicious but not at all low carb friendly. That's why I decided to try and make this nut based version and it came out really good!

Kale-pumpkin salad, low carb vegan This salad has a great bite and is packed with nutrients like calcium, iron and vitamins A and K. As with all cruciferous veggies, it's nice to let the salad sit for a while so the dressing has time to soften up the kale. If you mix it up in the morning and take it to work, it will be nice and tender by lunchtime.

Low carb vegan nut bread This recipe came from a loose leaflet that I found in an old cookbook that we got from David’s granny. I love getting inspiration from these old family recipes. First I veganized it by repalicing the milk and eggs with alternatives, and then I made it low carb by replacing the wheat flour with my […]

Vegan steamed rice cheese This is not a low carb recipe, but it is so awesome I wanted to share it here anyway. For a long time I’ve wanted to make a vegan cheese that was similar in texture to Violife (Europe) or Chao (US). I’ve tried many times with different ingredients and methods and this steamed rice flour […]

Low carb vegan lemon poppyseed muffins These little cakes are very filling. They are a perfect snack to bring with you to work or when you are going on a trip. Unfortunately, they only keep for about two days at room temperature. They freeze and thaw very well though, so you can easily make a big batch and put them in the freezer for when you fancy something sweet.
