Perhaps I should rename Philly Law Blog Philly Food Blog… but hey, it’s my law blog and I’ll write about what’s on my mind.
What people have been asking me for a lot lately are low carb recipes, and what I eat on a daily basis.
I don’t actually have a lot of “recipes.” Rather, what I use are flavor combinations and some basic ingredients.
This is what I tend to cook with:
Sauce and Flavor Combinations
Asian: Coconut aminos (tastes like soy sauce), Tamari sauce (Soy sauce but gluten free), coconut oil, fish sauce (smells disgusting but makes everything taste delicious), duck fat (you can use coconut oil), Thai pepper, chili oil. Sriracha sauce has a little sugar in it but it’s not terrible. Avoid any sauces with sugar in them like hoisin sauce.
French: Garlic, olive oil, butter (I prefer Kerrygold), lemon, white wine vinegar, mustard (makes a fantastic dipping sauce), Worcester sauce, duck fat, salt, and pepper. High end cheese and red wine is acceptable in moderation. Key word: moderation. The beauty of French cooking is its utter simplicity.
