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 […]

Low carb vegan cinnamon pudding I came across this recipe for low carb protein mug cakes that had a very easy vegan option: ‘just leave out the egg’. You can imagine I felt it call my name, but I was ‘busy’ and scared to be disappointed, so it took me a while to actually make them. Obviously I broke down […]

Seitan chicken pieces, low carb vegan I loooove seitan! It’s cheap, low carb, high protein and super tasty. This new recipe is even lower in carbs and meatier than my ‘basic seitan’ recipe that I posted a few weeks ago. It is a little bit more work to make, but still really easy. The combination of vital wheat gluten and pureed […]

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.

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, […]

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 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 […]

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.

Low carb seitan, vegan Seitan is one of my favorite vegan protein sources.

It is very versatile and can be made into lots of different varieties and flavors, form a simple basic meaty seitan like this one, to sausages and burgers.
