Award-winning foodie Vickie de Beer and her family started their low-carb journey after her son, Lucca, was diagnosed with diabetes.
In her new cookbook she shares healthy low-carb meals that can be whipped up in minutes.
Chicken wings normally take up to 50 minutes in the oven, but by blanching them beforehand you save loads of cooking time. This is the perfect snack for movie night or watching the rugby!
Steak should be grilled over a fire, but sometimes you just don’t have time to light up the braai and then your only option is to pan-fry. Luckily steak takes only minutes to cook, which makes it perfect for a speedy dinner.
Tabbouleh with Middle Eastern lamb chops
Tabbouleh is a fresh and zingy Middle Eastern salad normally made with bulgur wheat, which is a high-carb grain. I use broccoli rice instead of bulgur wheat, and I must say I think this version is better than the original. This salad keeps for two days in the fridge.
Soft naan breads topped with speedy curry – this combination is so delicious it’s guaranteed to become a dinnertime staple.
Grilled fish with lemon and caper butter
Flavoured butters are one of the quickest ways to add flavour to dishes. You can even make them in advance and keep them in the fridge in little rolls.
This ’70s classic is back in vogue because it’s just so delicious. The secret lies in not overcooking the steak.
