Low carb vegan bibimbap I finally managed to find gochujang Korean fermented chili paste in Amsterdam. I love the flavor, like a marriage of sriracha and miso. I want to try lots of Korean recipes now, and started with bibimbap. This is a nice quick filling recipe with lots of different flavors that takes about half an hour to […]

Palak tofu paneer, low carb vegan A reader asked me for more ethnic recipes, so here we go! For this palak paneer recipe (Indian spinach curry with tofu) I took some cues from Vegan Richa, the queen of vegan Indian food. This dish looks impressive, but it is super quick and easy to make, especially with the few small shortcuts I […]

Zucchini-broccoli soup, low carb vegan I love a nice creamy soup when it’s cold outside. Serve it with some high protein bread or crispbread spread with tofu-cream cheese and you’ve got yourself a meal. All you have to do is sauté the veggies in some oil, add water and some flavorings, let it cook and puree with your blender. Super […]

Black soybean chili, low carb vegan Our local Asian grocery stocks black soy beans, and I thought it might be nice to use them instead of regular black beans in a chili to make it lower carb. If you don't have black soybeans, you could use the more common white ones or even edamame.

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 […]

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.

Thai curry, low carb vegan I love Thai food. Thankfully it is very easy to make it vegan and low carb. In this recipe I go the easy route and use a store bought curry paste. The result tastes great and is very easy to make. It has about 25 gram carbs and 450 calories for a big and very filling serving.

Creamy sundried tomato pasta, low carb vegan This recipe goes back to when I was a student and had to cook my own meals for the first time. I used to make it with crème fraîche and tortellini. Now I veganize it with soy yoghurt and make it low carb with soy noodles instead of pasta. It's still a very tasty meal and super quick to prepare.
