You guys, this is really delicious. I’ve never been a fan of corn on the cob, or served up piled on my plate. But I do love corn bread. My Mother makes a steamed corn bread with minced corn that is utterly sublime. It is steamed in a pressure cooker in a deep pudding bowl with a tented aluminum foil lid tied down with cooking string. Utterly delicious. I wish I had a photo of it from back in the day!
Here is my recipe which is a fond throwback to my very old and most thumbed, loved and favourite recipe book, Moosewood Cookbook by Mollie Katzen. More on this marvelous and beloved vegetarian book after my recipe adaptation to a keto-friendly recipe with some changes. No sweetcorn in here but a super moist corn bread with good flavours. I did purchase an entirely natural corn essence but you don’t need it!
Sometimes you have days when a quick lunch or dinner dish is all you feel up to, or it’s been a busy day and you’re not feeling like the usual longer meal prep. Our favourite dish to make on days like these is Egg Foo Young.
My sister takes full credit for this tasty recipe shared with me recently.
It’s crisp, sparks with flavour and is a keeper.
Thanks SpotiD! 👌❤ it!

I served it with a splash of reduced balsamic vinegar infused with fresh mint. Serve with boiled eggs and kielbasa sausage slices.
Aubergine, brinjal, eggplant … whatever you call it, this beautiful vegetable is the perfect keto veggie fat bomb. High in fiber to negate the carbs, it has a wonderful sponge tendency of soaking up oils and seasonings and delivering a delicious meal. You’ll need a large aubergine, sliced in thick disks, marinated in herbs and garlic, brushed with pesto and tomato paste and topped with mature parmesan, then oven baked.
