Roasted Celery and Macadamia Cheese

Keto Side Item Recipes > Keto Recipes

Celery that’s roasted in the oven turns buttery and sweet. Pair this with a completely dairy-free macadamia cheese and you’ve got yourself a side dish that’s rich but also low in carbs. Perfect for those of you who are unable to eat cheese.

The macadamia nut cheese alone is worth making just so you can spread it over keto friendly crackers. The nutritional yeast is really important for making it taste great, so make sure you don’t skip this ingredient. You can find it inexpensively in the bulk bin of most major grocery stores. Trader Joes also carries it now.
