What courgetti can do, rutabaga can too, thought Janneke Vreugdenhil while making her low-carbohydrate bible. Et voilà: the kohlrabi carbonara was born. By cutting the root vegetables into slices, you can easily shave with a vegetable peeler strands that look exactly like tagliatelle. The perfect basis for a classic and low-carbohydrate pasta carbonara.

The perfect comfort food after a cold winter’s day: a pot of steaming soup. Since carbohydrates are not requirements for a successful soup recipe, the choice is huge, but we went for a heartwarming version with sweet potato and parsnip with a spicy touch.
Our advice: make a large pan and freeze it for moments of acute soup need.
