Tip!

Open your mind to all the veggie fry possibilities… asparagus, green beans, and wax beans are yummy options. All add a festive side of ‘crunch’ to our tasty hamburger.

    My daughter has a nut allergy but is doing LCHF with me. We have quinoa flour, hemp flour and chickpea flour. Which would be the lowest carb substitute for the almond flour? (We also have coconut flour, which she can have, but find it imparts too much of a flavour to work with Parmesan.) Ideas for substitutions?

    They say peas and quinoa(grains) are not good for lchf. I only know of the coconut flour and almond flour. Did you text it with the coconut flour?

    They look good (and smell even better), but the taste is extremely bland and unsatisfying. I really wanted to like these but it simply felt like I was eating poached asparagus. I gave the recipe two stars- one because of the aspect of the "fries", and the second one because I like DietDoctor too much.
