Keto Condiment Recipes (Page 2)

Homemade Sambal

Homemade Sambal

Sambal is a sauce or condiment typically made from chili peppers and combined with secondary ingredients such as shrimp paste, garlic, ginger, scallion, sugar, and vinegar. Tamarind can also be seen commonly added to sambal to make variations on the condiment. I wanted to keep it simple and prepare a very easy sambal that you can make at home but also re-create an authentic and real taste. Boiling and then blending the dried chilies make a great basic chili paste which can be used in frying ...

Well, I'm going to be no different and going to be posting quite a large array of pumpkin based recipes for fall season! While I do love pumpkin, I try to use as little as possible for the carb counts to stay low.

Roasted Garlic Chipotle Aioli

Roasted Garlic Chipotle Aioli

Mayonnaise is well known among people on a ketogenic diet, but aioli seems to sit in a corner and not get too much attention and love. Well, there's a really easy explanation for this - they're pretty much the same thing. Aioli is...well, mayonnaise with garlic. Easy enough, right? This term was cultivated in the French region of Provence. Normally the garlic of aioli is crushed using your hands or a mortar and pestle, so the flavors of the garlic can come out into the sauce. But, if you see ...

Bacon and Roasted Garlic Spinach Dip

Bacon and Roasted Garlic Spinach Dip

Over the years, traditional spinach dip from the store has gotten a bit bland. It all tastes like the same stuff - cream cheese and some spices put together and poured out into the thousands of plastic containers that you see on the shelf. This? Nothing of the sort. It's packed full of flavors and bursting with a different texture in every single bite. Paired with chia crackers or pork rinds, nobody that's eating this will even have a clue they're eating keto - it's that good! Whether you're ...

These are all fantastic ideas - and I'm sure you can come up with some other awesome ways to eat this stuff, because it goes down easy. I was talking to a ...

Oven Roasted Garlic

Oven Roasted Garlic

Yup, it's really this simple to make roasted garlic. Although not very keto-friendly on its own, it does serve a delicious flavor throughout many other dishes. Roasted garlic takes on a deeper garlic flavor, but brings some sweetness to the pot. It's a fantastic way to get a slightly different flavor out of garlic, and to use garlic as the forefront of a dish. I don't see that many people using this technique on their garlic, and they're really missing out. Roast garlic has a wonderful flavor ...

Strawberry Chia Seed Jam

Strawberry Chia Seed Jam

Chia seeds are one of my favorite things to use when I have the chance to use them. Not only do they make for some delicious foods, they're also pretty great for you, too. They're packed full of nutrients, so much so that they're one of the most nutrient dense things you can eat, calorie for calorie. Not to mention, they're filled with antioxidants, which has shown to have some positive health benefits. I've used chia seeds to thicken quite a lot of stuff - pudding, yogurt, sauces. But, this ...

Thick and Sticky Maple Syrup

Thick and Sticky Maple Syrup

Oh the joys of maple syrup! Through the years, I've experimented and used many syrups that are low carb. Mrs. Butterworths Sugar Free Maple Syrup has always been a pleasure of mine to use, though I do use it rarely. It's got aspartame so I know others wouldn't want to use it. Torani also does some awesome syrups, but I have decided that Torani is kind of expensive for what it is. I realize many people have a budget and many people like to make their own foods to their own tastes. So, I ...

Keto Friendly Bacon Jam

Keto Friendly Bacon Jam

So, we all love bacon, right? Bacon is a delicious treat we get to eat on a regular basis...but it just doesn't seem like I get enough of it as is. I wouldn't mind having some bacon with every meal. Well, now we can! Sorry vegetarians, but this one is not going to be for you. You can pretty much use this stuff on anything savory. I spread it on keto breads, spread it on frittata muffins, and top my dinners with it. It's just plain delicious! All of the flavors together create a sweet, ...
