Beat the clock and beat the carbs

Windsor Star - - YOU - JU­LIAN ARM­STRONG

At first glance, the cover pho­to­graph of Toronto blog­ger Va­lerie Azinge’s 30-Minute Low-carb Din­ners (Page Street Pub­lish­ing/ Cana­dian Manda Group, $32.95) looks as if lamb chops are sit­ting on a bed of mashed pota­toes.

Not so fast — since this is a book of low-car­bo­hy­drate recipes, pota­toes, pasta, rice, bread and sweet foods are taboo. The pic­tured purée is curry-flavoured cau­li­flower — one of dozens of flavour­ful, fast and un­com­pli­cated ideas from Azinge.

Her pep­per steak has a sauce made with Grand Marnier, her pork loin is cooked with peaches, chicken burg­ers con­tain Ca­jun sea­son­ing and the kale frit­tata is en­riched with aged ched­dar cheese.
