    looks great! Would be helpful to have the amount of carb show up on the printer paper. As it is I have to print and hand write on the paper.

    Hi Michael!

    I recommend that you use Crème Fraîche. :)

    I had to use a frozen herb mix "Italian Style". It had chopped herbs and some finely chopped onion in and went really well with the veggies. It's another yummy dish I will certainly make again.

    I skipped the broccoli and added extra cauliflower instead. It was really good.

    Try little pieces of cooked bacon, try before salting in case your bacon is very salty, I don't know.

    I want to try radish also, for some reason. It's got a nice colour to it.

    How long do you fry for? And do you add the sour cream and cheese in in the frying pan or after?

    What kind of cheese?

    Looks like cheddar

    I do not really like sour cream or cauliflower but I LOVED this! I felt like I was eating something on the naughty list. I think since the cauliflower was fried up in butter it made it edible for me. Yum!

    Very good, thanks

    Are you supposed to fry the seasoning herbs (oregano and herbs) with the chopped veggies?

    i enjoyed side dish as main dish..

    At the bottom of each title paragraph, it will say whether it is low, moderate or high carb. If you "hover" over that, more information will come up. This recipe is eight carbs per serving.

    I'm wondering if I use coconut or almond flour, if I could do sort of a traditional white sauce...I could use almond or coconut milk, too...hmmm. I just looked up the carbs in a leek: 13 minus two for fiber= 11 usable carbs...might just leave that out. It doesn't sound good to me in this dish anyway.

    I tried to make a roux for some broccoli cheese soup with almond flour instead of regular flour. It was a disaster! Is there a good substitute to thicken a soup?

    Also any suggestions for BRAND names of yogurts which are legal? I keep reading labels but can't seem to find any that would fit on the strict low carb program.

    Thank you everyone who responds! I have been on for 2 weeks and have lost 7 lbs and I really am excited to keep losing another 20!

    Hi Lily,

    It is mentioned on a list of shopping for bigger on the same site. Turkish yoghurt 10 %.
    Good luck!

    I like to fry the cauli and Veges with butter for about 5-10 mins (longer if u want) I then just throw everything else in cheese sour cream etc cover pan and put on low simmer for another 10 mins or so! I cook the chicken while Veges are simmering and when chicken is done I tuck in .
    I put the herbs in just before adding the sour cream and cheese ( I put turmeric and cumin as well )
    Hope this helps :)

    I'm confused about portions. The introduction says "eat all you want" of the meats and vegetables listed, but these portion sizes are rather small and the amount of carbs would easily go over the allotted 20g if they were doubled.

    I really liked this dish. I added sour cream and shredded parmesian cheese after cooking and putting in serving dish. I subbed green onion for leeks. I was thinking it may be easier to cook veggies like I cook cauliflower steaks (bake at 500 degrees for 15 minutes). I got kinda impatient waiting for it to fry. I will make this dish again!

    This was sooooo delicious! I will definitely make again. Very easy to prepare. Thank you!

    Try a little arrowroot for thickening. There's 55 carb grams in ½ cup, but you would only need a couple teaspoons in most cases.
  36. Sam
    8 carb grams

    This was lovely. Didn't have leeks so used just 1 spring onion, used up some swiss cheese (was a bit stringy once melted but nice all the same) and fresh oregano from the garden. Really lovely with a simple steak diane/mushroom concoction I made. Delish.

    Corn starch will thicken it just a table spoon or two works
