I blogged about the fabulous Lo-Dough® product a while ago and the delicious Salami Pizzas Funnyman regularly enjoys. I like to make seafood pizzas for myself (but always devour them before I photograph them). One night I attempted a pita bread – and they turned out fantastic and comes in at 3.9g carbs per entire pita! If you want to make it a more substantial meal, add some good-quality prosciutto after baking – see pic at the end).
The first time I ever tried padrón peppers was in Barafina in Soho, London about 2 years ago. Funnyman and I were out drowning our sorrows for some or other reason, I cannot recall exactly but I suspect it was something financial. The irony was that we sat in this restaurant for about 4 hours and ordered three-quarters of the tapas menu items throughout the evening, washed down with plenty of wine (this was LBK- life before keto). Whatever was bothering us that night was soon forgotten (along with our financial common sense) – but the padrón peppers were thankfully as memorable as they were delicious. Eaten whole, this is a risky little appetiser as some are hot and some are not – you just don’t know what you will get. They are simply the perfect appetiser for someone who likes to live on the edge and I was delighted when I saw they are now readily available at the supermarket. I have made this several times and never encountered a spicy one, so perhaps it’s not that risky after all. A lovely, simple tapas – you should give it a try!
