Mongolian Beef Egg Roll in a Bowl - Gluten-free, Low-carb, THM-FP, skillet dinner

This is my take on P. F. Chang’s Mongolian Beef. They prepare theirs with steak strips and I wondered if we could get the same yummy taste using ground beef. Knowing how easy egg roll in a bowl is to make I decided to combine these two dishes and it turned out amazing.

The atmosphere and the food of P. F. Chang’s is so wonderful and to be able to recreate this taste at home and inexpensively is a win for me!

I decided to use a 16 oz. bag of coleslaw to make this dish even quicker. If you prefer to shred the cabbage yourself you would need about 5 cups and also 1 shredded carrot.

Of course you can use chop sticks to make this dish more fun to eat like my family does, but I can’t seem to get the hang of them so I’ll keep with my fork.

The glucomannan powder in this recipe is a carb-free thickener that can be used as a replacement for cornstarch. This powder is made from the konjac root and it doesn’t take much to achieve it’s thickening power. It’s mixed with the sweetener and ginger to make sure it spreads out nicely as it can clump up if you just drop it into a recipe. I use it in my dairy-free smoothies to get a creamy texture.

Trim Healthy Mamas this recipe is an FP. You can serve this with brown rice and make this meal an E. Keep your portion to 1/4 of the recipe or less to keep it an FP or E.

Ingredients

Instructions

In a large skillet brown the ground beef. Drain off fat and rinse ground beef with hot water to quickly drain off any extra fat. Place ground beef back in skillet and begin reheating on medium heat.

Stir in the sliced green onions and garlic. Carefully pour in the coconut aminos and water and stir to mix.

In a small bowl mix together the erythritol, glucomannan, and ginger. Then add to the skillet.

Drizzle in the blackstrap molasses.

Add in the package of coleslaw. Stir to combine. Cover and let cook over medium heat for ten minutes stirring occasionally.

Notes

Trim Healthy Mamas, this recipe can be used as is, as an FP. And that would be one serving which is 1/4 of the entire dish.

It’s what you serve with it that will change it to an E or an S.

Serve it with brown rice and the rice will give it the good carbs to make it an E.

Serve it with other foods that are in the S category and it will be an S. You won’t need to rinse the beef if you are wanting it to be an S.

If you prefer you can use 5 cups shredded cabbage and 1 shredded carrot in place of the coleslaw.

Dairy-free Cheesy Cauliflower Rice - Gluten Free, Dairy-Free, Low-Carb, THM-S

I love being able to get a quick side ready for a meal and this cheesy cauliflower rice is super easy. Just put the frozen cauli-rice in a pot with a little bit of water to cook it and add the coconut oil and seasonings and it’s ready to go.

Dairy-free Cheesy Cauliflower Rice - Gluten Free, Dairy-Free, Low-Carb, THM-S

The butter-flavor coconut oil in this recipe is one of my favorite products. If you are dairy-free you really need to try it – it’s so good. I have found it at my local grocery store for less than the price on Amazon. So be sure to look for it in the baking aisle.

Another good ingredient to keep on hand if you’re dairy free is nutritional yeast. It gives your food a yummy cheesy flavor.

If you like to rice your own cauliflower that would work for this recipe as well, but for ease I like to be able to grab a bag of frozen cauliflower rice.

This cheesy rice is also really good in a bowl with sliced sausage or shredded beef and avocado with just a little bit of salsa.

Trim Healthy Mamas this recipe is an S.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Step by step pictures and instructions on how to cut and cook a spaghetti squash in the oven and in the Instant Pot. Easy to make ahead for quick dinners. It’s the perfect gluten-free low-carb solution to enjoying pasta dishes.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

(This post contains affiliate links. Any purchases you make through my links will provide me with a small commission at no extra charge to you. Thank you for your support!  See my disclosure policy here.)

I remember the first time I tried a spaghetti squash I was perplexed at how hard it was and really didn’t know how to cut it open. So I pulled out my big butcher knife and called my husband into the kitchen and asked him to take care of it. He did and then I baked it up and we had the first of many wonderful meals featuring spaghetti squash.

As time went on I realized I needed to be able to cut that hard spaghetti squash myself and so I searched for the best way to cut one and this method is now my go to way to cut it open. It’s actually super easy and we never really needed that big ole’ knife after all.

Supplies needed:

A small paring knife (I love and use this one daily)
Cutting board
Large spoon and bowl for the seeds
Cooking spray (I use these spray bottles to spray my oil)
Baking pan for baking in the oven or use an Instant Pot

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Hold onto one end of the spaghetti squash, keeping your fingers far from the cutting area.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Take the paring knife and insert just the tip. Do not push the knife in very far as it will get stuck from the pressure of the shell. So put just the tip in and then pull up and make another little cut.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Make your way all the way around the spaghetti squash until you connect with your first cut.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

You may need to go around the squash with your paring knife one more time making the cut just a little bit deeper. This will not take hardly any time at all to do.

Then pull it apart.

There it is all cut and ready to go.

Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds. I also use my knife to clean up the stringy seeded area a little more thorough.

Ready to cook.

When I bake them I like to spritz the squash with some avocado or olive oil, you could also use a coconut cooking spray. It’s not necessary to spritz them if you will be cooking them in the Instant Pot.

Give a good sprinkle of salt.

Place open cut side down in baking pan.

I often make two or three spaghetti squash at a time and keep the cooked spaghetti strands in my refrigerator for a quick meal. It also freezes well, so I may put half of it in a freezer bag and freeze for another day.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

I bake it in the oven at 350° for 60 to 70 minutes until nice and fork tender. I like to have my spaghetti squash soft so if you would prefer to have a crunchy bite just bake it for a little less.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Let it cool and then using a fork pull out the long strands of spaghetti.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Keep pulling out the spaghetti strands.

This part amazes me everytime! All these strands of squash come right out looking like spaghetti.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Two spaghetti squash will make about 8 cups of cooked squash.

I use spaghetti squash in any recipe that calls for pasta. It’s the perfect gluten-free low-carb solution to enjoying pasta dishes.

Ingredients

  • spaghetti squash

Instructions

  1. Using a paring knife, cut around the middle of the squash making very small cuts with a paring knife. Continue cutting around the middle until you reach your original cut. Go back over the cutting line with your paring knife making your cuts a little deeper. Go all the way around again. The squash should come apart. Scoop out seeds.

Baking in oven for one or more spaghetti squash

  1. Spritz the cut side of the spaghetti squash with avocado, olive, or coconut oil. Sprinkle with salt and place cut side down in baking pan.
  2. Bake at 350° for 60-75 minutes until fork tender.
  3. Allow the squash to cool before removing the strands of spaghetti with a fork.

Cooking in Instant Pot for one spaghetti squash

  1. Place the rack in the bottom of the pot and add 1 cup water. Place the two halves of the squash in the pot. You may need to place on up and one down to fit. Close lid and make sure steam vent is closed.
  2. Press Manual mode and set at 10 minutes for pressure.
  3. When pressure is finished and it switches to warm mode (with the L for low in front of the numbers) turn it off and carefully open the steam vent.
  4. When all the pressure is released you can open the pot and remove the squash.
  5. Allow the squash to cool before removing the strands of spaghetti with a fork.

Dairy-free Peach Frozen Yogurt - Sugar-Free, Low-Carb

This dairy-free peach frozen yogurt brings back memories of my childhood. I remember one summer when I was little and we had a large family reunion the adults were making peach ice cream for everyone. They were using one of those crank ice cream makers and family members were taking turns cranking the machine, while everyone was anxiously awaiting. Well, I know I was anxiously awaiting. It was such a novelty to me to have homemade ice cream and for it to have peaches in it. I’m thinking it was my grandfather’s favorite flavor.

After what seemed like forever to my young mind, they started passing those bowls of creamy goodness out to everyone. I remember taking those first few bites of peachy goodness and thinking the world was a wonderful place. It’s a snapshot in my mind of a perfect summer day with family and the most delicious peach ice cream man could make.

Fast forward to today and we have the blessing of being able to make homemade ice cream and frozen yogurt in a simple to use electric ice cream maker. I love to use my ice cream maker, especially now that our family needs to eat dairy-free we can still enjoy delicious and healthy desserts like this one.

Dairy-free Peach Frozen Yogurt - Sugar-Free, Low-Carb

 

This dairy-free peach frozen yogurt is so simple and easy to make, just blend the ingredients and put it all in the ice cream maker and let it do it’s magic. I’ve added in the flavors of vanilla and just a bit of ginger to make the peach flavor really shine.

Trim Healthy Mamas 1/4 of this recipe is an FP. If you have more than 1/4 of this recipe it will push it into an E category.

Fried Green Beans | gluten-free, low-carb

Fried green beans is an easy and delicious side dish. I like to keep frozen green beans on hand to quickly round out a meal. When I was growing up, I think I was the only one in my family who didn’t like green beans, but frying them like this made me come to love them. They have such a great texture and flavor.

I use gluten-free Herbamare organic seasoning salt in my recipe, but feel free to use your favorite seasoned salt blend. Make sure to check ingredients if needing to be gluten-free.
