It’s Tuesday Trio Time
and it features low carb vegetable side dishes,
though some may prefer to serve them as a main – the choice is yours.
This is a beautiful, and most colourful, side dish. Easy-to-make with lots of good flavour.
Choose to serve it with either meat, chicken or fish …
But perhaps if you just like vegetables, enjoy the dish by itself!
6g carbs per serving
300 g brussels sprouts
150 g cherry tomatoes
150 g mushrooms
2⁄3 teaspoon sea salt
1⁄3 teaspoon ground black pepper
2⁄3 teaspoon dried rosemary or dried thyme
80 ml olive oil
Celeriac and Walnut Gratin : Vegetarian
Serves 4 – 6
4g carbs per serving
1 large celeriac
2 tbsp. walnut oil
300ml vegetable stock*
handful chopped walnuts
100g blue cheese, such as Bleu d’Auvergne or Stilton
(* you can also reduce the amount of vegetable stock slightly and add crème fraiche,
it makes for a slightly creamier texture)
Green Beans with Garlic and Almonds : Low Carb Side Dish
This is a wonderfully green, crispy and crunchy low-carb side dish.
Green beans always go great with a nice Sunday roast, or perhaps a Thanksgiving, or Christmas turkey!
7g carbs per serving
4 garlic cloves
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons olive oil
700 g fresh green beans
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
80 ml almonds, chopped
I hope you’ve enjoyed this ‘Tuesday Trio’.
I wonder have you a favourite looking out of these three? It’s the roasted vegetables tricolore for me …
