Week two of avoiding carbs and I’m doing just fine. In fact, I’m loving it. Mostly because in the last week I’ve managed to pack away sushi (erm, rice), a pork and roast fennel burger (erm, bread) and a seriously deevine little crayfish pasta dish I slapped together from my super secret crustacean freezer stash. I told myself if I made my own pasta instead of going the packet route, it would somehow magically be low carb. After the second glass of Chardonnay I believed it.
But I’m back in the saddle. I think. So here is this week’s bad-bad-girl-no-carbs-for-you offering. Yes, it contains fruit. Which contains sugar. Which is a carb as far as I know. But really, I think extra points for me just because there’s no rice, bread or pasta in sight.
This is one of those recipes that looks frightfully ‘cheffie’ but is really so easy. You can grill the nectarines in a griddle pan or pop them on the braai. It’s absolutely perfect as a light lunch or fancy-ish starter.
