Happy Mother’s Day! To all the Mother’s reading this, you are more appreciated than you know. I had been thinking about what recipe to create and wanted to do something special. My spicy, low carb, oven baked catfish is so delicious and has only 3g of carbs per serving!
Eggplant Amala Fufu (swallow) is an excellent choice when low carbing and craving the taste of the traditional Amala Fufu (Elubo). In Nigeria, Amala is made from yam flour, cassava flour or plantain flour, and is usually eaten with one of our popular soups like Egusi soup.
Fried rice had been on my mind for about a few weeks. I had taken my kids to a birthday party and there was a huge plate of party fried rice front and center, and it looked so delicious! I just knew I had to make my own low carb cauliflower fried rice.
One of the things I missed the most about going low carb was my noodles/spaghetti dishes. I think I went a whole year before I discovered the miracle of Miracle Noodles, aka Shirataki/Skinny/Zero Noodles.
The Nigerian Local Jollof Rice goes by many names: local jollof rice, palm oil rice or concoction rice. This delicious meal is prepared using cauliflower for a lower carb count, but does not sacrifice on taste.
This low carb, cabbage jollof rice recipe is another one of my favorite recipes which is very fast and easy to make. Depending on how much time you have, you can make it without any other veggies (except the cabbage, of course) and it will still taste great!
Egusi soup is a very popular soup eaten in Nigeria and usually served with Fufu (pounded yam, eba, semovita, etc). It is very rich in healthy fats and protein and made from ground melon seeds.
This is a low carb version of the African Fufu (also known as swallow) made with cauliflower. Fufu is a very popular and versatile West African dish eaten with a rich, thick soup and decorated with different types of meat (beef, goat, lamb, fish, you name it).
Rice is a staple in most African countries and in my native country, Nigeria, no party is complete without our national food, Jollof Rice.
