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!

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 […]

Beets, vegan sausage and mushy peas The Netherlands are very much a 'meat and potatoes' country. The traditional foods are 'mash pot' (mashed up potatoes and veggies, served with some kind of meat) and just simple boiled potatoes, meat, vegetables and gravy. These types of foods are actually surprisingly easy to make low carb, and they often end up tastier than their carb-filled cousins.

Blender ice cream, low carb vegan Spring has finally arrived and that makes me think about summery treats like ice cream. If you have a high powered blender or strong food processor it's super easy and quick to make your own fruity soft serve, sherbet, ice cream or whatever you like to call it. Choose berries as your fruit to keep this really low in carbs.

Sundried tomato tapenade, vegan Yum, tomato tapenade! I like to eat it on crackers, use it as a sauce for pasta and even as a salad dressing. Store-bought tapenade is often expensive and it can be difficult to find vegan versions, so I like to make my own. It's super easy if you use a jar of sundried tomatoes in oil as the base.

Sunflower seed spread, low carb vegan I’ve been doing some meal prep recently and one of the things I do is make some spreads to use on sandwiches and as dips for veggies.

Low carb hot cereal, vegan This homemade low carb cereal is one of my favorite breakfasts, especially during the winter months. It's super quick to make. You just mix a bunch all the dry ingredients in a jar and then in the morning you add a few tablespoons of the dry mix to some plant milk, blitz it in the microwave or heat it up in a pot and you have a lovely hot breakfast porridge that will keep you full for a really long time.
