Pork and black-eyed-pea meatballs in tomato sauce

September 9th, 2009

This recipe was inspired by some quick, cheap and tasty black-eyed-pea balls at an African restaurant called Le Kilimanjaro recently. Black eyed peas have a low GI (38-52) and a carbohydrate portion of 30g per 150g. They are high in fibre, magnesium, folate, iron and protein. I found a recipe for the traditional African version […]

Bean lover’s scramble

September 6th, 2009

Perfect for a mid morning brunch, a lazy dinner on a Friday night, or a midnight snack after a late night out. A bit like bubble and squeak, this recipe makes use of what was left in a near empty fridge prior to shopping day! Check out our beans tag for more info about beans. […]

I find it wonderful experimenting with my favourite restaurant delicacies, and being able to eat them without restraint! This is a lower fat version […]

Mushroom Soup

July 5th, 2009

This recipe is loosely based on a recipe by Damien Pignolet for mushroom broth with herb cream crust. I have made the original version, and it is very tasty. It is made with creme fraiche and cream which is a very special treat, but not great for every day. This much more cholesterol friendly version […]

Herb-stuffed roast lamb with garlic confit

June 28th, 2009

The best part of this recipe is the delicious garlic confit. This recipe is taken from Damien Pignolet’s book “French” (consider buying it through this Amazon link to support lowgicooking.com) however I have altered the way it is cooked slightly, excluding lavender from the herbs, using less parsley, and rather than spending the hours it […]
