[PART 5] GLUTEN-FREE, LOW CALORIE, LOW CARB Fancy Avocado Toast

GLUTEN-FREE LOW CALORIE LOW CARB Avocado Toast

Believe it or not – when I made this amazing gluten-free, low calorie, low carb toast for the first time a few years ago (I was at varsity and on a Banting diet) I was SO FREAKING PROUD OF MYSELF:

  1. It is made with ONLY 2 INGREDIENTS

  2. It takes less than 5 minutes to make

  3. It is LOW IN CALORIES

  4. It is GLUTEN-FREE and LOW CARB with a bread-like texture

I felt like I had just invented the wheel, because I created something so simple, that (I thought, anyway) was pretty much the best thing I had accomplished in my life – nevermind my university degree haha!

Okay – ja I think I’m exaggerating a bit now, but you get the picture.

I was on a Banting diet and created a Banting-friendly pizza base! Yip – this recipe started out as a pizza! I know you get tonnes of them in the shops nowadays, but being made (usually) from seeds like flax-seeds – they are usually pretty high in calories. So now that I am no longer Banting, I don’t need all those fat calories, and I don’t necessarily want to make cauliflower pizza everyday because it takes some effort, and I DEFINITELY can’t eat regular pizza every day.

Only 2 ingredients: eggs and psyllium husks.

That is the story of how this gluten-free, low calorie, low carb fancy avocado toast was born! 

Now you may be wondering how I thought to add psyllium husks? Well, not to overwhelm you all with TMI – but I had a bit of a digestive problem when I was Banting due to the lack of fibre in my diet. So I bought some “banting-friendly” fibre called psyllium husks (you can find it in any health shop, even supermarkets).

The original plan was just to add it to my usual omelettes – I didn’t really think it would change what I know as an omelet completely!

So I added the psyllium, and literally saw it absorb most of the egg-liquid when I mixed the two ingredients. What I was left with, was a thick mixture that needed to be spooned onto a griddle right away (before the mixture became too hard).

Afterwards, I was like “It makes sense!” because obviously fibre absorbs liquid!

Anyway, once on the griddle, it proceeded to puff up a bit like a flapjack! So I spread a little tomato pizza sauce and sprinkled a little mozzarella over the top, removed from the pan and topped with sautéed mushrooms 🙂 yuh-uhm!

I was further surprised when I cut into the “pizza base” and it was bread-like!

So without further ado – let’s continue to the recipe below…
