Beef stew! I use turnips in place of potatoes, 1 small carrot, and cut green beans instead of peas. I thicken it with Not/Starch. Very delicious!
I learned that turnips won't be bitter if you drop them in boiling water for 4 to 5 minutes, and then immediately put them in ice water to stop them from continuing to cook. After that, you can use them in whatever recipe you like.

I made a pot roast in the pressure cooker with rutabaga, parsnip, a couple carrots, pearl onions, and chayote squash. Boy it turned out yummy!
I also love any kind of chile - chile verde, chile adovado, chile Colorado, whatever! Topped with shredded cheese and chopped sweet onion...mmmmm.
AND I love pot pie made with a Carbquik/cheese crust.
Heck I love hot food. Any kind!

Clam Chowder and Barbo's White Sauce Mix.
Low Carb Clam Chowder
Note: add drained clams last, so they don't get rubbery....
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 tbsp chopped garlic
2 celery sticks chopped
1 c. large shred carrots
1/2 a head cauliflower
2 cans chicken broth
1 8 oz. bottle clam juice
2 10 oz. cans clams
1 stick butter......yes a whole stick ;-)
2 cups heavy cream
6 crumbled pieces cooked bacon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp paprika
2 tsp. Xanthan gum
In a big pot sauté onion in a little oil cook on med-hi until caramelized in color (must do this because it adds soooo much flavor). Then add in chicken broth, clam juices from canned clams plus 1 bottle of clam juice, all the veggies, crumbled bacon plus the bacon drippings and all spices except X gum.... simmer until veggies are soft.
Add 1 stick butter, 2 cups heavy cream, heat a little, then sprinkle in 2 tsp. X gum, bring to a mild boil cook until slightly thicken, NOW! add the drained clams and cook for a couple of minutes. I got 6 Ziplocs bowls full.
PS, I also mash it a little, thickens it a touch
Also my very LC White Sauce Mix for the fridge:
Barbo’s Instant Low Carb Sauce Mix
TNT Instant Béchamel, Veloute, Beefy Mushroom
2 c. Carbalose plus 2 tbs.
1- 4oz. cube butter
¾ tbs. salt
¾ tbs. coarse pepper, freshly ground is best
*Onion powder to taste
Place everything in Cuisinart except onion powder and whirl until the mix is like coarse sand.
1 serving: 3 tbs. mix ½ c. liquid
4 serving: ¾ c. mix 2 c. liquid
For white sauce or Béchamel sauce. (Add cheese for cauli. & cheese)
1. I used ½ c. Low Carb 2% Hood milk, pinch onion powder, 3 tbs. mix
2.I used ¼ c. heavy cream and ¼ c. water, pinch onion powder, 3 tbs. mix.
I think I liked the milk best.
Serving size was the same as above
½ c low sodium chicken broth
Pinch of onion powder
3 tbs. mix
*Onion powder was a pinch as I made small servings
as my experiment. It is optional but I thought it disguised the
Carbalose taste. Method is make a slurry and cook on low for 3 minutes once it comes up to a boil turn heat down, keep stirring with a whisk. When using the large amount use hand held blender
Beefy Mushroom Sauce
Serving size was same as above
Sauté fresh sliced mushrooms, set aside, add when sauce is ready
½ c. really good strong beef broth
3 tbs. mix.
