Creamy brocolli salad (banting, low carb, lchf, budget-friendly) 

This salad was inspired by a salad I had at a braai(bbq) but as fate would have it, it wasn’t so banting friendly so I decided to create my own. Here goes. 


1 head of brocolli (chopped) 

1 clove ground garlic or 1 teaspoon ginger powder

2  tablespoons grated onion

100g chopped cheddar

1 teaspoon ground ginger or 0.5 teaspoon ginger powder 

2 tablespoons chopped coriander OR 1 tablespoon  coriander powder 

1 teaspoon salt

0.5 teaspoon ground black pepper 

1 teaspoon erythritol  OR  xylitol 

Juice of half a lemon 

1 cup thick cream (if using fresh cream just beat it till it becomes slightly thick but a little runny or pour into a bottle and shake till it starts to thicken) 

3 slices of tongue OR cold meat (chopped) 


Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl and enjoy. That’s really all you need to do.  

Bon apetit! 🙂

A really great addition to a braai/bbq, this is a twist on the traditional potato salad but using cleaner ingredients and carries less carbs.

0.5 cup water


2 Tablespoons thick cream

3 Tablespoons double cream thick yoghurt

2 Tablespoons finely chopped fennel

1 tablespoon chopped parsley

Juice of half a medium lemon

1 tablespoon grated onion

1 teaspoon ginger powder or ground ginger


15 Minutes to steam

5 Minutes to mix

Total: 20 Minutes

Place the sweet potato into a pot with the water then steam until tender but firm. Remove from the stove then mix in a bowl with the cream.

In a separate bowl: Mix the yoghurt with the rest of the ingredients. Then pour over the sweet potato and mix well.
