Keto Chorizo and Creamed Cabbage

Keto Recipes > Keto Dinner Recipes

Chorizo is a spicy sausage consisting mainly of pork and paprika seasoning. I enjoy chorizo by itself, but in this recipe we paired it with a lemony garlic creamed cabbage and it pairs wonderfully!

Chorizo goes good with a lot of other sides as well, like mixed greens, cauliflower hash, and more. The creamed cabbage I made soaks in all the flavors of heavy cream then is topped with lemon zest and minced garlic.
