Low Carb Refried Black Soy Beans

When I found out my regular grocery store carries Eden Black Soy Beans in the Natural Foods section, I grabbed a bunch to try out some recipes. I had wondered how these would taste mashed and fried. I found a recipe at Low Carb Luxury for Refried Black Soy Beans, but of course I had to modify it a little. I did like the addition of bacon because it gave a really nice flavor to the soy beans. In fact, I think I’ll add more bacon next time.

I simplified the original recipe because I like to make my cooking as easy as possible. There were a lot more steps in Lora’s recipe. Other than cooking the bacon, the ingredients can all be processed together before frying in the skillet.

These low carb refried beans would taste great with cheese rolled into a carb conscious tortilla to make a burrito. They can be served plain or topped with cheese. This is also something that can be used to make a layered tortilla chip dip. I know you will enjoy this if you are a fan of Mexican food.

Coconut Flour Pizza Crust or Bread Sticks

Gluten Free Low Carb Pizza Made with Coconut Flour

Gluten Free Low Carb Pizza Made with Coconut Flour

I have returned from a week long vacation and am ready to get back into low carb cooking. Before I left, I had been experimenting with making a pizza crust out of coconut flour. My first try resulted in a bland and spongy bread. I received several suggestions on my Facebook page on how to improve the recipe. I added ground flax seed to get rid of the sponginess. The added flax really made a difference and resulted in a much crisper crust. I like pizza crust that is thin and crispy so the flax meal was a great addition. To fix the taste, I added more seasoning as well as a little olive oil.

I warned my picky daughter that the delicious smelling pizza had a “special” crust on it. She was still willing to try it because I had already sampled it and told her it wasn’t bad. My daughter’s favorite frozen pizza is Freshetta so her comment was “It’s okay, but it’s no Freshetta.” Just the fact that she finished the slice without a complaint is reason enough to call the recipe a success.
