Trenette al pesto (with zoodles ๐Ÿ˜ฌ)

If you have kids, you may have seen the Disney movie โ€œLucaโ€ the action of which takes place in Liguria, the original place of Pesto Genovese. The dish in the movie is a pasta dish with green beans and potatoes. I boiled the potatoes a day earlier and refrigerated overnight, then cooked the beans with the pasta for my family and made zoodles for myself. I made my own pesto (used Pecorino only) and these were the resultsโ€ฆ(I added 100g cooked chicken thigh for myself because, well, protein, and I need to feed these muscles ๐Ÿ˜ฌ)

Cheesecake brownie

(death by chocolate)

Ingredients for chocolate mixture
160g dark chocolate (min 70%)
100g grass fed butter
170g erythritol
60g coconut flour
20g raw cacao powder
175g cream cheese
50g 18% fat cultured cream (creme fraiche)
3 eggs
Pinch of salt

Cottage cheese mixture
700g cheesecake ready cottage cheese (smooth blended cottage cheese)
3 eggs
130g erythritol
1tsp vanilla extract
30g coconut flour
200g raspberries

1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees.
2. Melt the chocolate with butter, then add the remaining ingredients and mix to obtain a smooth batter (itโ€™s quite thick).
3. In a separate bowl, mix the cottage cheese with eggs, sweetener, the vanilla extract and flour. It may be runny, that is no issue.
4. Take 2/3 of the chocolate mixture and spread over the bottom of a parchment lined form (30x24cm). Pour the cheese mixture over it, then spoon out the rest of the chocolate mixture and put the raspberries on top.
5. Bake for 50-60 mins at 170 degrees Celsius placed low in the oven. Cool for at least 2h, then another 3h in the fridge.

Rhubarb meringue pie

I make this pie on a lupin flour base I posted some days ago. The meringue is 4 eggwhites with 120g of erythritol and vanilla essence. I used 1.2 kg rhubarb and 100g wild blueberries (hence the gorgeous colour), and I cook the chopped up rhubarb with erythritol and pectin to get it to thicken.

As you can see, the nutrition values are very keto friendly, and the CGM confirms.

Keto chocolate cake

Amazingly rich and moist because it is steamed, but you can bake it too (just do not use the cling film then ๐Ÿ˜†
