Cabbage Fufu | Low Carb, Keto-Friendly, Gluten-free Fufu

Hey guys, the next in line in this low carb fufu meals series is Cabbage Fufu This is tailored to those on a low carb diet but remember anyone who wants to reduce his or her carbohydrates intake can enjoy it

I'm not on any special diet but I can eat these low carb fufu meals while still eating rice and other classic fufu meals They help you reduce your carbs intake without you missing out on swallow meals We'll be using 1 medium cabbage We all know that cabbage is a vegetable that does not have starch so you can't mould it into a fufu ball Because of that we will need a low carb binder

One of such binders is psyllium husk It is a popular binder in the ketogenic diet world Another binder you can use is Xanthan Gum Xanthan gum is used mostly in baking but it also works well with binding the cabbage I will use both of them in this video and give you a feedback on the texture

Please ooo, read up on these ingredients so you will be sure that they are good for you before you use them To make the cabbage fufu, chop the cabbage all up Blend with just enough water to get your blender moving When done, pour into a muslin bag You can also use a washed brand new pillowcase

Wring it then place heavy objects on it to help press out all the water I'll use psyllium husk to bind some and use xanthan gum to bind the rest Put the cabbage in a pot and start stirring I'm using medium heat Once it heats up, take a note of the time and stir it steadily for 5 minutes

Add 1 teaspoon of psyllium husk and keep stirring for another 2 minutes You will see it coming together like a starchy fufu meal Take it off the stove and wrap it in a plastic film This is very important so that it will remain mouldable The texture of Cabbage fufu bound with psyllium husk feels more like eba

Next we will test with Xanthan Gum Again, put the cabbage in the pot and when it heats up, note the time and stir for 5 minutes Add one quarter teaspoon of xanthan gum Xanthan gum is more potent than psyllium husk so a small quantity gets the job done Stir for 2 more minutes then wrap it up as well

The Xantham gum gives the cabbage fufu a softer texture, it feels like semolina or semovita If you are on a strict low carb diet, you MUST serve it with a low-carb Nigerian soup such as Ogbono Soup, Okra Soup, Vegetable Soup, Miyan Kuka and many more The full list will be in the description box below the video But for any other person, you can serve it with any Nigerian soup Next I will share Aubergine or Egg Plant Fufu

Bye see you soon!
