French food for Bastille Day

Thank you everyone for your no-carb French food suggestions! I didn't get to make all of them, but I did make and eat a lot of delicious food and bookmarked a lot of things to make later. Here are some photos of what we ate behind the cut.

Here are the croissants and chocolate croissants. They came out really well, though I should have made more chocolate ones.

From Food

Napoleons (homemade puff pastry dipped in chocolate with coconut cream and strawberry jell - soooo good)

From Food

Rosemary almonds - very simple, but really good

From Food

Crust less broccoli and cauliflower quiche for my no carb friends - this came out really delicous

From Food

Ricard Pastis to drink - I don't even like black licorice, but this was good. I read somewhere that you can add banana syrup as well as water and that was actually really tasty. I was excited to find a non-wine (since I cannot drink wine) French alcohol!

From Food

A piperade with smoked tofu instead of ham or prosciutto - this was delicious! We used it for a filling for the crepes, though since you put it on eggs it could have gone on the quiche also.

From Food

My cousin made a savory tart with potatoes and eggplant and I don't know what else. It was really good

From Food

They also brought a French tabbouleh salad

From Food

And I made a star shaped blue white and red jello mold thing with agar and peach juice. I was so excited that it was actually keeping its shape! And it tasted really good. Who needs jello when you have agar?

From Food

My plate full of food! It was sooo good! There is a sweet crepe, a savory crepe, some tabbouleh salad, a croissant, some tart, some quiche and in the middle some jello mold and rosemary almonds.

From Food

Kind of blurry but the savory crepe has steamed asparagus, piperade, and a nutritional yeast and almond "cheese" sauce which actually came out better than I thought it would.

From Food

The sweet crepe had berries (strawberries, blueberries and raspberries) and peaches with chocolate sauce and soy whip cream. YUM!

From Food

Another picture of the napoleons for dessert. There were tons more veggies and fruits, but I didn't get any photos of them. It was a delicious French food feast!
