Avocado Cucumber Salad - Keto, Low-Carb, Vegan

I happened upon this recipe concept, the avocado cucumber salad, while perusing the Interwebs. Avocado and cucumber both fall into the low-carb category, but it was hard to imagine if those two ingredients alone were enough to be a good base for a salad.

Whipped Tofu and Roast Beetroot Dip - Carb-Up, Low-Fat, Vegan

I wanted a higher protein, plant-based dip for a carb-up that doesn't use chick peas or beans that require soaking ahead of time. Whipping up tofu gives a similar consistency to Greek yogurt when combined with a non-dairy milk, so I made that the base the added roast beetroot for flavour and colour.

Tofu Custard - Keto, Low-Carb, Vegan, Sugar-Free

A couple of weeks ago, I made a vegan custard as a topping for a berry cobbler. It was good, but I thought it might be nice to have a version that used tofu as a base, to make it higher in protein. With a few extra ingredients to balance out the flavours, it worked out nicely.
