Twice Baked Potato Style Zucchini

Twice Baked Potato Style Zucchini

If you love the combination of flavors that make twice baked potatoes so good, then you know that it’s really the filling ingredients that you enjoy so much. The potato itself is just a conduit for getting goodies like sour cream, butter, bacon bits, and cheese into our mouths in a single bite. With a ketogenic diet, it’s OK to have it all as long as you don’t stuff it into a potato. Zucchini makes the perfect low-carb vessel for this heavenly filling. First, crisp up a few strips of ...

Brussels Sprouts with Melted Leeks and Prosciutto

Brussels Sprouts with Melted Leeks and Prosciutto

While Brussels sprouts and leeks aren’t what first come to mind when we think of low-carb and ketogenic diet friendly foods, we can incorporate these nutritionally dense foods into the diet on occasion. What it takes is the right combination of ingredients to get the balance of fats, carbs and proteins. Here, we cook the vegetables in a healthy amount of coconut oil, which causes the leeks to almost “melt” into the sprouts, creating a rich silky texture. Topping it off, we splurge on some ...

Mashed Cauliflower with Parmesan Cheese and Truffle Oil

Mashed Cauliflower with Parmesan Cheese and Truffle Oil

Mashed cauliflower is the go-to mashed potato replacement for people on ketogenic diets. Sometimes, however, mashed cauliflower can get a little boring. This recipe turns down-home mashed cauliflower into a gourmet side dish. The cauliflower is steamed and then mashed with butter, salt, and pepper. A handful of Parmesan cheese adds interest and a nutty flavor, but the crown jewel of the dish is black truffle oil. Black truffle oil provides a deep, earthy flavor and complex aroma. It is a ...

Keto Bread Loaves

Keto Bread Loaves

Bread is right up at the top of the list when it comes to what we miss being able to eat on our ketogenic diet. These keto bread loves combine high fiber coconut flour with wholesome flaxseed meal and a handful of standard baking ingredients.

Keto Mushroom Wild Rice Pilaf

Keto Mushroom Wild Rice Pilaf

Okay, okay, before you get angry and say that wild rice pilaf isn't keto - we're definitely not using wild rice in this recipe. We're using shelled hemp heart seeds to mimic this taste and texture, and boy does it do a good job. I grabbed these hemp seeds when I first heard about them and immediately knew I was going to do a rice type of dish. I highly recommend grabbing a pack to try out yourself! The slightly crunchy, slightly al dente texture really gives off a vibe of a couscous or a wild ...
