Low Carb Broccoli and Cheese Fritters

Low Carb Broccoli and Cheese Fritters

Are you not too big a fan of broccoli? Do your kids moan and groan when you're telling them what their side dish for dinner is? Worry no more! With a handy deep fat fryer, you can turn broccoli into a treat that everybody will love. The texture of these broccoli and cheese fritters are crunchy on the outside, and decadently soft and melty on the inside. The taste is delicious and full-bodied, and you'll be asking yourself why you didn't do this sooner. I got a new deep fat fryer for ...

Keto Breadsticks

Keto Breadsticks

I based this recipe for the breadsticks on the same dough that's used in both the Low Carb Pepperoni Pizza and the Keto Roti John. This dough is extremely versatile and I'm sure will help a lot of people on their quest to finding a lot of substitute replacements on keto. Today I decided to do breadsticks in three different ways: Italian style, extra cheesy, and cinnamon sugar. Two savory flavors which taste absolutely delicious just dipped in some tomato sauce (I use Rao's), and one sweet ...

Begedil Keto Potato Patties

Begedil Keto Potato Patties

With another journey through food to Asia, we meet up with the Begedil. Also known as the Perkedel in Indonesia, these are traditionally made with mashed potatoes and deep-fried. Very commonly, you can find these in the night market (pasar malam) or small stalls along the street (garai). You can eat them on their own with a dipping sauce like mayonnaise and chili paste, or you can serve them in a clear soup/stew (usually Soto, or a noodle soup) like they are traditionally served. You ...

Keto Au Gratin Brussels Sprouts

Keto Au Gratin Brussels Sprouts

It's that time of week where most of us are looking through the fridge thinking "Why didn't I go to the store yesterday?" You're wondering what's for dinner, and you only have a few ingredients to work with. Well, no big deal - as long as you have a little bit of protein to go on the side, you'll be set with this! Brussels sprouts are a great way to get some texture into your dish for a vegetable, but you could easily do this with broccoli or cauliflower. You'll have a nice crisp crust to ...

Keto Pie Crust

Keto Pie Crust

Today I bring you a keto tart dough...that actually stays together while you're making it! A lot of the coconut flour doughs that I've tried to make and form into a tart or pie ends up working, but it's really tough to work with. It's extremely crumbly and falls apart while you're working with it. Almond flour is pretty similar, although I found that it has better elasticity to it when you're working with it. Well, I put the two together, then added a bit of psyllium and egg to help work ...

Crispy Keto Cauliflower Cakes

Crispy Keto Cauliflower Cakes

Finding the right kinds of side dishes on a ketogenic diet can be difficult. You usually end up defaulting to some salad soaked in dressing or vegetables sauteed in oil and butter. But, sometimes we just want a change that seems impossible to do if we need that extra boost of fat to stick on the plate. Sometimes a few leaves of greens just won't cut it, and we want something hearty, full of fats, and delicious to boot. There are days I find myself going overboard for a few hours, stalking ...

Lemon Roasted Spicy Broccoli

Lemon Roasted Spicy Broccoli

Side dishes have become something that we argue about in my house. From who has to make it, to how long it'll take while cooking the main meal - it usually ends up being a salad because nobody wants to do the extra work. Luckily though, roasted broccoli is quickly becoming a staple here because of the simplicity of making it. It's practically pre-heating your oven, seasoning some broccoli, and stuffing it in the oven for some fantastic hands-off flavors to develop. It doesn't get much better ...

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus with Garlic Aioli

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus with Garlic Aioli

Bacon wrapped asparagus is something that you can serve up to guests (or yourself) and feel good about it. The bitter and distinct, yet delicious, flavors of the asparagus paired with the rich and hearty bacon come together to form a fantastic combination. Pair that with a smooth and thick garlic aioli to top it all off and you have a winner on your hands. I've never been much of a fan of asparagus, but cooked right and wrapped in bacon - I will eat it any day! When I'm lacking fats in a side ...

Asian Cucumber Salad

Asian Cucumber Salad

I've bought shiritaki noodles in the past and I'm just the type of person that can't get over the texture of the things. They're just not that delicious pasta that I want when I think of a hearty dish. They're closer to eating rubber bands, wrestling with the texture to chew them up and be able to swallow. I know some people love them, but I just can't get over them! I decided to try a new take on how to use them, and this way they turned out pretty great! Though they do reduce to about 1/4 ...

Low Carb Flax Tortillas

Low Carb Flax Tortillas

It's not often that I go around the blogosphere screaming from the rooftops about how amazing a recipe is. Heck, I won't even do it now - I just want you to know that if you're looking for an awesome tortilla recipe that's really easy to do, then TRY THIS RECIPE. I know many of you have been using the other tortilla recipe on the site, but the dough starts to get a little tough to work with unless you work very fast. As the boiling broth cools, the dough starts to cling together, making it ...
