LOW CARB EGGPLANT ZUCCHINI PARMIGIANA

Low Carb Eggplant Zucchini Parmigiana:  an old-time Italian classic transformed and ketofied to reduce carbs, but still yummy! The classic Parmigiana is an Italian favourite and extremely well-known dish. I am sure that Italian foodies will cringe at my ketofication. But a girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do to make her favourite recipes keto-friendly, right? And so I have. To make a Classic Parmigiana you use aubergines (eggplants) that you need to coat in batter and deep-fry. I’ve used aubergines together with courgettes (zucchini) because the latter contains fewer carbs. Instead of coating them in batter and frying Continue reading LOW CARB EGGPLANT ZUCCHINI PARMIGIANA

POTATO FREE LOW CARB FRENCH FRIES

Potato Free Low Carb French Fries: just 7.6g carbs for each serving. Finding a vegetable that can substitute potatoes. The one thing that the ketogenic family misses the most, is French Fries, together with their fatter cousins, chips. Try as you might, you cannot fake the feel and taste of real potato French fries or chips with vegetables. I gave it a shot with swedes, with turnips and with celeriac. I tried baking them after boiling them first and I tried baking them raw. Nope. They shrunk immensely, they did not become crispy and they tasted nothing like the Continue reading POTATO FREE LOW CARB FRENCH FRIES

Initially designed for 4 servings, it turned out so good that it became dinner for two with a healthy side salad. I just love it when I can make a totally new dish out of bits that I already have. Sometimes the end result leaves a lot to be desired. Sometimes it’s not quite there but has Continue reading EASY KETO ZUCCHINI AND RADICCHIO BAKE

Low Carb Keto Cauliflower Cheese: a recipe that will make you love this vegetable again. And just 4g carbs each serving. I can guess what you’re thinking… cauliflowers again, bo-ring! I admit that following the ketogenic regime has its difficulties.  Yes, there are very few vegetables that are classed as low carb enough to satisfy ketosis. True, cauliflowers pop up again and again in everything from mash to pizza base. And yes, I get sick of cauliflowers too at times. But NO, this recipe is far from boring. In fact, I promise you that Continue reading LOW CARB KETO CAULIFLOWER CHEESE

LOW CARB CAULIFLOWER MASH

The perfect low carb cauliflower mash. This is by far my favourite way to cook cauliflower. Cauliflowers are a perfect low carb vegetable for the keto lifestyle. As with all other cruciferous vegetables, it is an incredible source of Vitamin C, Vitamin K, manganese, folate and so on. It is also very versatile and can be cooked in many ways. I used to love potato mash, but this is so nice I do not miss the original version at all. You might have eaten plain boiled or steamed cauliflower in the past and thought Continue reading LOW CARB CAULIFLOWER MASH
