I'm not much in the way of a chef, but I do love food.  I want to see what the FTS family will come up with.  This should be a lot of fun.  I'll be checking back often on this thread!  Yum! :o :o :o
Wishing you love, joy, peace, light, and laughter for every moment in your life;)

Hi, Doug! :)

I would like to add that ALL recipes should have been prepared and eaten by the contest entrant.
This avoids propagating bad recipes... Some recipes look good until they hit the palate. ::)

Do you agree?

Tony

Yes...starts today! Tony I think it depends on the recipe. Elaborate recipes should certainly be tested by the author :)

Okie Dokie - I could use some zero, I'm almost out  :)  I was waiting for someone to be first, but guess it's going to be me.

This is a recipe I found in a magazine and I've converted it -

Spanish CHICKEN PIE (makes about 4 generous serves) or Spanish CHICKEN CASSEROLE (without pastry)

2 tblspn olive oil
chicken thigh fillets (thinly sliced) 750g
chorizo sausages (sliced) x 2
50g red onion (sliced/diced/wedge - your choice)
140g red capsicum (diced/sliced)
pitted olives (as many or little as you want)
fresh oregano leaves - optional
chicken stock  3/4 cup (or 1 cube + water)
glucomannan powder (or your choice of thickener) to thicken

Heat oil.  Fry chicken. Remove.
Add chorizo, onion, capsicum - cook 5 minutes.
Add stock and chicken.  Heat.
Sprinkle glucomannan in and thicken.
Add olives (and oregano).

The pastry I've had to amend as it called for white flour and as we all know is a NO NO.
I use this 'pastry' as a base for quiche as well.  I originally used it as a base then wondered if it wouldn't be better as a pie top instead, but haven't got around to it as I enjoy the filling with side vegies.  It has a great flavour.

Pastry -
25g soy flour
75g almond flour
75g golden flax meal
100g margarine softened
1/2 tspn papricka (optional - I don't use when doing quiche)
Opt - parmesan cheese which is sprinkled on top of the decoration pastry

Mix all together, flatten between 2 sheets baking paper
(can put in fridge to firm up).
Place in dish.  (Save a few pieces, place on tray to cook - doesn't need to be blind baked).
Bake blind for 10 mins at 200oC.  Then further 10-15 mins.
Pop in filling.  Decorate with the cooked extra pieces.
Bake till hot through.  Serve.

By my calculation (and ingredients) - Pie filling = 13 carbs/ Pastry = 8.22 (the .22 is the papricka)
Total 21.22/4 = 5.2c

You don't have to follow the filling recipe exactly - you can add more or less of any ingredient (just adjust carbs).

Enjoy.

Here are what I made up/ adapted yesterday. Not sure if my carb calculations are correct. Mary loves it when I make up recipes!


Cinnamon Green Tea
by Susie Owens

I love my Yerba Mate green tea. In the summer I make it into lemon iced tea, but in fall it's a wonderful cinnamon tea!

Green tea
1 Cinnomon Stick
Sweetner to taste (I use 6 drops liquid Stevia and 2 drops FTS Zero Sweet)

Brew your green tea as usual. When you steep it, steep for 5 minutes with the cinnomon stick in it.
After seeping 5 minutes, swirl around about 30 seconds, and taste the wonderful cinnamon!
Save your cinnamon stick to use again & again. Let it dry out in a cup on the counter.
You can even get more creative & use mulled spices in a cheese cloth bag.
Isn't fall wonderful?

by Susie Owens
8 net carbs for entire recipe

2 tablespoons plus 1 tsp Coconut Flour
2 tsp Flax Meal
3 medium Eggs, beaten  
3 tablespoons Cooking Oil
3 tablespoons Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk
3 drops FTS Zero Sweet
1/2 tsp. Baking Powder  
1/2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
Pinch of Salt

1. Preheat non stick pan, spray or add oil.
2. Mix all together very thoroughly.
3. Pour 1/4 cup batter for each pancake.
4. Cook on Medium flame until browned.
5. Flip, cook other side until brown.

Fall Low Carb Chili
by Susie Owens
Made this recipe from my mother's "Best Chili" recipe. I changed  it  to be low carb and added a fall spice.
My daughter Mary loves fall food and she asked for seconds of this chili. You can put in less tomatoes to make it lower carb. I'm going to sneak in some flaxmeal to make it healthier next time.
32 net carbs for entire recipe

2- cloves garlic, minced
2- lbs ground beef
1- large green bell pepper, diced  
1- large onions  
3- cups diced tomatoes  
2- 15 oz cans black soy beans
2 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp allspice
1 tbsp oil
2 dashes cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf
salt & pepper to taste

Saute garlic in oil until golden. Crumble the ground beefin pieves & cook 10 minutes, breaking up the meat to brown.. Pour off fat into another pan and cook the diced onion green bell peppers in it until tender. Add to cooked ground beef and tomatoes, black soy beans & other ingredients. Cook covered on low heat for 1 hour. If dry, add water. Serves 6 (made about 8 servings for us though)
