Low-Carb Savoury Puddings Are Possible!
This Turkey (or Chicken) & Mushroom Pudding is a serious bit of winter-warming wholesomeness. Packed to the rafters with its savoury filling, FULL of flavour and incredibly satisfying, this is a great meal for a cold night! If you have plenty of leftovers after a Sunday Dinner or even Christmas dinner, this is a great way to use some up!
By using Lo-Dough instead of a traditional suet pastry crust, you'll massively drop the calories and the carbs (and the fat for that matter), whilst upping the fibre content of the dish. Fibre contributes massively to satiety (the feeling of fullness), so you'll still have a very satisfied tummy at the end of this one.
