Almond flour fufu - a quick and easy low carb dish that makes an excellent alternative to high carb fufu like eba and pounded yam. Eat it with any African soup for a satisfying low carb meal!
I have a few keto fufu recipes like my cauliflower fufu and cabbage fufu, but I am always on the hunt for more to enjoy with my African soups. And since I already have coconut fufu, why not almond flour also?
This almond swallow has a neutral taste and is super easy to make. I like to make it on days I have no energy to cook, but already have soup in the fridge for my family.
It is ready in less than 10 minutes from start to finish and takes minimal effort and energy to prepare!
Is almond flour good for weight loss?
Almond flour is one of the best low carb flours and is used in many keto and gluten-free dishes. It is a good source of protein, fiber, and healthy fats. It is also high in magnesium, vitamin E, and anti-oxidants.
Ingredients used in making almond flour fufu
Almond flour: Any brand of almond flour will do as long as it contains 100% almonds and nothing else is mixed with it.
Psyllium husk: Keto flours do not contain gluten, so they do not naturally bind together. Psyllium husk acts as a binder and cannot be omitted, or the fufu will not hold its shape. I always use Organic India Whole Husk Psyllium, and I swear by it.
How to make almond fufu
I use one cup of almond flour for this recipe, which comes to about 12 net carbs. You might feel the quantity is too small and might be tempted to add more, but remember that the carbs will add up.
Almond flour contains a lot of fiber, so a small quantity will fill you up very quickly.
Add one cup of water to a pot and turn on the heat. While waiting, mix the psyllium husk and almond flour in a bowl.
When the water boils, pour in the flour and stir. If it looks a bit watery, just keep stirring, it will begin to thicken up. Don't be in a hurry to add more water unless you're absolutely sure you need to.
If you need to add more water, add very little at a time. Unlike coconut flour which readily absorbs water, almond flour does not. You run the risk of making it watery if you add too much water.
When it is done, wrap in a plastic wrap and let it sit for about 30 minutes to really set if you want it firmer. This step is completely optional. The majority of the time, I get my soup ready and dive right into it!
This recipe serves 1 and contains 12 net carbs.
