Bridal Shower Carb Free Menu Suggestions
I am a low carb queen! I would make a frittata. Something with spinach and feta perhaps? Also, I make radish hash browns alot. You should try those too. If you should offer fruit, make sure they are mostly berries which are lower in carbs. They also sell low carb vanilla yogurt in the grocery stores to serve along with the berries. Hope this helps. Here are some links to recipes:
Radish hash browns:
I'm not understanding what carb-free means if she can have fruit and vegetables since they're mostly carbs, both complex and simple. With carb free, I'm thinking roast turkey, roast beef, shrimp, cheese. Maybe shrimp wrapped with bacon. Frico cups filled with eggs and prosciutto. Even shrimp cocktail sauce has sugars/carbs. Deviled eggs w/out mayo?
You can always do lettuce wraps. Mini clafoutis, which are similar to quiches, just pour custard & desired fillings into mini muffin tin pan. And veggie dips like hummus & white bean dip are good with crudites. Also can do a nice ratatouille, although that's all vegetables.
Maybe stick to shrimp & beef skewers, don't have to use veggies, and a satay dipping sauce.
Caesar Salad with Parmesan Fricos (just spread grated parmesan into circles on baking sheets and bake til brown then remove from baking sheets and form into little cups)
Frittata or Crustless Quiche (as suggested by others)
Marinated Mushrooms and Artichoke Hearts
Chicken Cordon Bleu (just eliminate the flour or sub in soy flour if necessary)
Pureed vegetable soup
Pavlova or Floating Islands (made with stevia) for dessert... or Flourless Chocolate cake made with stevia
Thanks for the great menu ideas. This sounds like something i'd just want to make for friends for a brunch! We just actually had the Bridal shower this past weekend and i went with the following menu:
Chicken Ceaser Salad
Asparagus Sundried Tomato Lasagna (i know not carb friendly, but 90% of it is made up of vegetables.)
Flan for dessert.
The bride-to-be was happy, which was the most important person of all, and all the guests enjoyed themselves. :) Thank you again for all the menu ideas and suggestions.
There's so much you can make, and easy!
Bake little mini taco pies, the crust is ground beef and fill with a mix or cheese, sour cream mexican sauce, and avocado. Add olives or whatever you want. Great snacks!
or roll up procsuitto with a cream cheese and chive/tomato mix you can also bake those little bacon baskets since they no carb dieting. Fill with frisee, cheese, and salad. Too cute.
