Vegetarian lchf summer lunch for four

Hi everyone - here's a pic of the lunch I made for four of us today:

Quiche made with almond flour base, asparagus, 3 eggs, cherry tomatoes & cheddar;

Coleslaw - sweetheart cabbage, carrot, apple, pistachios and mayo;

Mixed salad - sliced tomatoes, roasted apricots, avocado, feta, fresh basil dressing.

No bread, spuds consumed - and still four full tummies ☺️

Thank you! It’s always an unknown dishing up vegetarian food for carnivores, let alone lchf - but without blowing my own trumpet, everyone this week has enjoyed their meals 🥗

I’m such an lchf convert and have to suppress the urge to evangelise 🤣

Looks lush monday1957!

Can I ask how you made the fresh basil dressing?

Hi lucatree - I snipped a load of fresh basil into a bowl and added juice of half a lemon, 1/4 cup olive oil, salt & pepper and tsp pesto. 🌻

Looks delicious! I had never thought of putting pistachios in coleslaw, what a great idea!

They're extra crunchy if you toast them in a dry pan for a few minutes, too.

It was pretty good, I won’t deny it!

It’s the dressing etc that makes it a bit different eg the apricots are stoned (hey man) & halved & I put a drop of olive oil, tamari & pinch of brown sugar in the dimple of each one - then roast for about 20mins. If any of the dressing spills out, all the better, as that gets drizzled over the final salad. Doing the fresh basil dressing only takes a minute, too.

The almond flour pastry base is easier than ordinary pastry too:

Mix 2 eggs with 4 cups of almond flour (or ground almonds) & pinch sea salt. Bake blind for 15 mins. Then your veg and cheese & egg mix is ready to pour inside the case & bake for 25mins. Simples ☺️
