Today, here and now, again some recipe ideas from my archive of the recipe book app. These include some of my favourite LowCarb dishes which I would like to present here. Depending on your taste and personal preference, you can of course add carbohydrates such as pasta or rice to these great dishes.
In this way you get a full meal for lunch which can also be prepared and cooked in a relatively short time. Especially the vegetable gratin with feta cheese is currently the long runner for our children. Simply delicious - have fun trying it out and cooking it yourself. 🙂

LowCarb vegetable gratin with feta cheese
Yesterday there was finally something tasty from the Low-Carb category: a vegetable gratin! Healthy, tasty and quickly prepared. It contains different kinds of vegetables like zucchini, paprika, mushrooms, carrots and celery. These consist mainly of water, contain few calories, but important vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium and sodium.
Due to its high potassium content, celeriac has a diuretic effect and is often used for detoxification. The vegetable gratin is then rounded off with egg, feta cheese and a good olive oil, which provide plenty of protein and healthy fats.
List of ingredients and instructions for the Lowcarb vegetable gratin
- 2 celery
- 1 paprika (red)
- 3 carrots
- 5 mushrooms
- 2 zucchini (green or yellow if you like)
- 4 eggs
- 200g feta cheese
- a good olive oil
- 1 pinch of pepper
The preparation is very simple. First wash zucchini, carrots, paprika, celery, dice and put into a casserole dish. Then pour a good shot of olive oil over the vegetables and spice with some pepper. Now put the eggs in a bowl and whip briefly. Add the eggs to the baking dish and pour over the vegetables. Now crumble the feta cheese and spread evenly over it.
Finally, the whole thing is placed in the oven at 180 degrees for about 30-40 minutes. Enjoy your meal! 🙂
Wok dish - chicken, zucchini and mushrooms
Today I would like to introduce one of my favourite LowCarb dishes. Main ingredients are protein (chicken breast fillet) and healthy fats (creamy unsweetened coconut milk). The other ingredients like courgettes and peppers are mostly water, low in calories, but contain important vitamins and minerals like magnesium, calcium, potassium and sodium. Carbohydrates were largely avoided. Quickly prepared in the Wok and extremely tasty! Who would like, can extend this Wok dish however also still by rice or noodles. 😉
List of ingredients - Wok dish with chicken, zucchini and mushrooms
- 500g chicken breast fillet
- 300g mushrooms
- 1/2 onion
- 2 green paprika
- 2 big zucchini
- 800ml Coconut milk (creamy/unsweetened)
- 3 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp Thai fish sauce
- 1/2 tsp red Thai curry paste
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 teaspoon vegetable stock
- Salt and pepper
- paprika powder
- sunflower oil
Preparation - Chicken-Zucchini-Mushroom Wok dish
First, the vegetables (courgettes, peppers, mushrooms) are cut into small pieces. Then the onion is chopped into small pieces. Now place the wok on the stove and set the stove to the highest setting. Add some oil to the wok and as soon as the oil is hot, add the onion and saute. Now cut the chicken breast fillet into strips and fry together with the onion. Season the meat with some paprika powder, salt and pepper. At this point add the vegetables, stir occasionally and let roast.
Stir a teaspoon of vegetable stock into 2 tablespoons of water and also add to the Wok and mix. Add the Thai fish sauce and soy sauce and fold in some Thai curry paste. Wait until the sauce is hot, then stir in the coconut milk. Let the wok simmer for about 10 minutes and stir from time to time. Ready! If you don't want to do without carbohydrates, you can cook rice or noodles and add them directly to the wok.
Hint: If you let the wok dish stand for half a day, it tastes even better 😉 Enjoy your meal! More tasty recipes can be found here in the blog.
