I have friends coming for dinner next week and they're thinking about going low carb to help with a couple of health issues. Can anyone suggest anything for a delicious low carb feast to help persuade them?
I might do something like pan-fried scallops, wrapped in pancetta, on a bed of pea and mint puree to start.
Fillet steak with a blue cheese sauce, with a green salad, and a celeriac dauphinoise for main
Pudding is obviously more difficult. You could serve a platter of berries, with a white chocolate and cream sauce (it's so sweet you really don't need much of it!), possibly with some crumbled meringue over the top for a bit of added texture. If you make your own, you could always use a sweetener. You could also make a vanilla cream, rather than a white chocolate one, using vanilla bean paste.
The shallot and Gruyere tart that's on the recipe thread is not only very easy to make, but also very delicious. You could do this with other salads - a green salad, and possibly some roasted veg or ratatouille.
