Really, this dish needs no further introduction. And if your mouth isn’t watering yet – well, it should be!

Now I know what some of you will be thinking at this point. This looks like a fatty and/or junk meal. Wrong.

Whatever the case – this low-carb savoury dessert plays by the low-carb principles and ratios, and will be satisfy without having to worry about the numbers.
