In the kitchen again – Low Carb Pumpkin Pie Bake and Chicken Enchiladas recipes

Atkins Diet Recipes: Pumpkin Pie Bake

This was the final recipe prior to Thanksgiving, and I wanted to provide my viewers an Induction Friendly option to the pumpkin pie.  Although it includes cream cheese, the flavor is absolutely not one of a cheesecake, and is very similar to the traditional pumpkin taste.   It is a recipe I make for most Thanksgiving, and it was first posted on LowCarbFriends forums.  It was also reposted on Linda’s Low Carb recipe site. (http://genaw.com/lowcarb/pumpkin_bake.h­tml ) I highly recommend this recipe, and to top it off you can add a dollop of low carb whipped cream.

Atkins Diet Recipes: Low carb Chicken Enchiladas and Faux Spanish Rice

I realized I have already posted a video on enchilada chicken, but that one was flavored with a commercial sauce. This recipe features a sauce derived from a recipe originally posted on Linda’s Low Carb recipe Site. (http://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/red_enchilada_sauce.html) I made this recipe earlier this week using it with low carb tortillas, but I wanted to offer an option even for those on Induction.

With that in mind, I adapted my faux fried rice recipe to make it more Mexican, and it really features the flavors. I might suggest adding a cup of chicken broth to the rice initially to further increase the flavor.

Ingredients:

  • 2 TBS oil
  • 1 small onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tsp Ground coriander
  • 2 tsp Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp Splenda, or liquid equivalent
  • 16 oz Tomato sauce

Cook onions in oil until tender and slightly browned.  Add Garlic and Spices.  Once the spices have bloomed, add the tomato sauce and water combine.  Once boiling, let simmer for at least 8-10 minutes. Makes 2 cups
