Low-Carb Sugar-Free Apple Pie Filling

Published by:

I was craving a slice of apple pie but didn’t want to go through the whole mixing up a pie crust baking for an hour thing so instead I stirred up a pan of low-carb, sugar-free apple pie filling in just a few minutes. No measuring required!

While peeling and chopping apples brown a pat or two of butter in a large pan over medium heat. When the butter is browned add a flavorful liquid such as orange juice, apple juice or other fruit juice, or monk fruit sweetened maple flavored syrup. Sprinkle in cinnamon and nutmeg and a healthy dose of your favorite calorie-free sweetener. I like to use a mix of stevia, xylitol, erthritol, Swerve, and granulated monk fruit. For a little extra somethin’ somethin’ add some chopped dates and chopped toasted pecans. Allow to cook until apples are almost soft making sure there’s still liquid in the pan. Stir in a thickening agent such as coconut flour, arrowroot flour, whole wheat flour or brown rice flour. When the sauce has thickened and the apples are soft remove from heat. Serve hot, warm or cold. Top with a dollop of vanilla yogurt or sugar-free ice cream if you like.

Balsamic Mushrooms

Published by:

mushrooms

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon cooking oil or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion (about 2 ½-inches in diameter), peeled and sliced
  • 4 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Heat butter or oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add onions and a small pinch of pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add mushrooms and a small pinch of pepper. Continue cooking without stirring for two minutes. Add vinegar, stir and continue sautéing until vegetables are browned and the vinegar has caramelized, about four to five minutes.

Season to taste with salt and pepper. Don’t add salt while cooking or the vegetables won’t caramelize, they’ll steam as the salt releases their juices. Pile veggies on top of the steak.

Notes

Make Ahead:
Make extra onions to use in sandwiches, or on top of a burger, a green salad ... Remove the extra onions before adding the mushrooms. Or, just go ahead and double up on the entire recipe as Balsamic Mushrooms are great on sandwiches, burgers, and salads.
