Five Quick and Easy Low Carb Recipes
Low Carbohydrate Recipe
Five low carbohydrate recipes you can whip up in a snap! From snacks to soup.
Ham and Cheese Logs
These little roll-ups make great snacks!
Softened cream cheese
Take some sliced ham and spread the slices with softened cream cheese. Put a small wedge of dill pickle on the small edge of each and roll into a log. Cut the log into 1-inch pieces, securing with a toothpick if necessary. Refrigerate to chill thoroughly.
Thin slices of Provolone cheese
A non-stick pan
Place one slice of cheese on the non-stick pan and cook on low to medium heat til bubbly and the browning from the other side comes through. Turn and cook on the other side. Let cool and break into pieces. These cheese chips are good plain, but they're also good dipped in low carb dips, such as a dry vegetable soup mixed with sour cream.
1 shredded cabbage
1/2 cup mayonnaise
Can of tuna packed in water
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Drain the water from the tuna. Mix all the ingredients together - a great lunch combination.

Creamy Chicken Soup
Saute a little broccoli, green beans, and chopped mushrooms in a little butter (gives the soup a little more flavor) until tender but not mushy.
Add some cream and chicken stock (plain water could be used), some chopped chicken, and zucchini grated on the smallest part of the grater. Simmer this soup mixture for about 10 minutes.
Note: The grated zucchini gives the illusion of a nice thick base.
Quiche is a really good way to have eggs, however, the crust is not suitable for a low carb diet recipe. Use nonstick cooking spray instead and thoroughly spray your pie pan.
Break a half dozen eggs into a bowl and beat them with a mixer until they are frothy. Pour them into the pie pan. From here, use your imagination and combine some of the following for a yummy crustless quiche:
- Ham chopped in cubes
- Grated cheeses
- Broccoli flourettes
- Chopped asparagus
- A few chopped bell peppers
- Chopped celery chopped
- Grated zucchini
Fill the egg mixture with one or more of these ingredients and bake for about 30 minutes, or until set and lightly browned.
