Low Carb Shrimp Toast

Keto Shrimp ToastKeto Shrimp ToastLow Carb Shrimp Toast. So, I have been watching this series on NetFlix called The Chef’s Show and one of the many recipes that has been done was simply called Shrimp Toast. I’m thinking that not only did it seem easy, but something very, very tasty so…I thought I’d give it a try. I already had all the ingredients that were called for and this is my result. If you ever do watch it, you’ll see that mine is not too much different except for gochujang. Koreans use  gochujang for just about everything and I don’t have any, let alone would I use it. It is very sugary and hot so if you want a spicier or sweeter keto shrimp toast then you could use a hot sauce and a bit of sugarfree sweetener of some kind. Now, if you do not make Carbalose Bread, or some version of low carb bread you will have to punt on that ingredient and perhaps serve it in a bowl but I did use it and the low carb shrimp toast that resulted was divine. The idea of the bread is to soak up all those heavenly juices and yes, it does do that.  I think using Cauliflower Grits, which I used the following night, would be the best food option under your shrimp. I make and freeze cauliflower grits so I can use them when wanted.

The original recipe used head-on prawns and I’m thinking you may not be interested in that so yes, I did use peeled shrimp. It of course looked kinda messy and if you like that messy stuff then by all means get head-on shrimp.

Keto Caramelized Mustard Cream

Keto Caramelized Mustard CreamKeto Caramelized Mustard CreamKeto Caramelized Mustard Cream.  I have pretty much always said that a sauce can make the meat, and this keto caramelized mustard cream is one of  those sauces. I have shown it with a beautiful black peppercorned pork rib chop and it is equally as comfortable with a steak, fish, and chicken. It’s really is an all-bases-covered sauce. I put it under the chop so you could see the gorgeous cracked peppercorn crust (which not only tastes incredible but also keeps the meat moist) but it’s easily comfortable smothering a piece of meat so, top or bottom, your choice.

In case anyone is wondering what that beautiful stuff with macadamia nuts on it is, well, it’s a Keto Bacon Broccoli Salad with everything but the kitchen sink in it and…it’s super easy to make.

Keto Stuffed Mini Peppers

Keto Stuffed Mini PeppersKeto Stuffed Mini PeppersKeto Stuffed Mini Peppers. I am unable to see how large your mini peppers are, as they come in different sizes so, I am going to use kind of an average in telling you how many you may need. These keto stuffed mini peppers are very easy to make, can be table ready in 10-15 minutes, and if you have a bit of help, even less time than that. I happened to pick up a bag of mixed colored peppers and the next thing ya know, in another store, there are seedless red minis which I would have purchased…If only I had known. These little puppies can be used as an appetizer or a replacement for a salad and no matter your choice they are good, good, good and…if you have kids & don’t make them too spicy, they will love them too.

Keto Bacon Broccoli Salad

Keto Bacon Broccoli SaladKeto Bacon Broccoli SaladKeto Bacon Broccoli SaladKeto Bacon Broccoli Salad.  I am here to tell you that this salad in a keto winner. It is very easy to make, piquant beyond belief, and because of its high fat content, is a perfect adjunct to any keto dinner. Really, do not have any long diatribe about this keto bacon broccoli salad recipe…the proof is in the eating.

As you look at the pic I hope you are noticing that I cut my broccoli pieces very small and there is a reason for this. If your pieces are too large, they are difficult to get into your mouth without smearing it about your face. As a kid I probably didn’t care about it and as an adult, I don’t like it. The peppers are also cut into smaller pieces. With that said, you may cut them any way you like cause this salad is going to be yours-not mine.

  3. The day I ate this I had fixed myself three chicken tenders flash fried in browned butter with a little
  4. salt and pepper and even at the time I realized it would have been so easy to have chopped up the chicken, topped the salad and called dinner good to go. Well, there is always a next time and...you can see, I fixed this as a luncheon with a friend a week later and...this time I had the chicken for it.

Keto Crab Dip

Keto Crab DipKeto Crab DipKeto Crab DipKeto Crab DipKeto Crab Dip. Was lucky enough to get my hands on some raw chicken skins and I was off to the races with this keto crab dip recipe. It’s the first time I have gotten skins in any number and I kinda wanted to pig out with them.  Now of course this can be scooped with any low carb vegetable but the fried chicken skins?…To die for. Keto crab dip by itself is very easy to make and shouldn’t take more than 30-40 minutes or so and most of that time is just letting the veggies, herbs and spices cook.  I used Parmesan cheese as my topping but pork rind dust could just as easily be used too and surprise, I purchased my crab meat at Safeway. Yes, there a few things I get there and crab is only one of them plus, it comes in handy ½ lb. containers.

Keto Cajun Shrimp & Grits

Keto Cajun Shrimp & GritsKeto Cajun Shrimp & GritsKeto Cajun Shrimp & Grits. This is such a fabulously easy recipe that it’s a shame you have to wait to go to New Orleans to get it. Well, you don’t and here’s a good recipe to start with. Keto Cajun shrimp & grits is spicy, piquant, and every bit as good as what you can get elsewhere and a bit of good news:  It is not nearly as expensive as eating it in a restaurant. Yes, the Grits are made with cauliflower but by the time you are finished with them you are not going to know. You can use any cheese of your choosing in the grits and I chose Mozzarella because It is what I happened to have on hand but cheddar, white cheddar, or any cheese of your choice works.

Keto~LowCarb Crêpes

Low Carb Crepes

Low Carb Crepes. As we now well know, crêpes have become a thing not only for a fancy dessert or breakfast, they have also become mainstream for some pretty fancy dinners too. In the last 5-6 years there have been 100’s of créperies opened nationwide while people stand in line to eat in them. The wonderful thing about my low carb crêpes is they don’t cost an arm and a leg to eat.

Each of the keto low carb crêpes recipes begin with a full recipe (12) of ZeroCarb Flaxseed Meal Crêpes and then the directions are for each of the fillings.  Some are savory for dinners and some are sweetened for desserts.  It is my opinion that after you have made the crêpes once or twice, you will come up with many more of your own choosing.

All low carb crêpes on this site are diabetic friendly and include keto, low carb, paleo, and primal recipes. Vegans need not apply. All are made with real food for a healthier you. Please, eat well.

Keto Eggplant Mushroom Lasagna

Keto Eggplant Mushroom LasagnaKeto Eggplant Mushroom LasagnaKeto Eggplant Mushroom Lasagna. It would be customary to think of lasagna with a red sauce but no, this keto eggplant mushroom lasagna is made with a white wine cream sauce. I know it is not much to look at but boy oh boy is it good, assuming you like eggplant, cheese, mushrooms and oozy gooey food.  If you have looked at many of my dinner plates you have seen lots of eggplant as a side dish but this takes center stage on the plate. Your portion will be larger than mine as I only made ⅓ the recipe and because I always eat many other things with dinner. Despite the picture, there is no basil in the recipe…I ate it with my tomatoes…with abandon.

Keto Italian Bubble Bread

Keto Italian Bubble BreadKeto Italian Bubble BreadKeto Italian Bubble Bread. No telling what I may Google on any given day and I have no recollection how I started seeing pictures of something called bubble bread but I did, and this keto Italian bubble bread is the culmination of what I saw and gads, it is easy, cheesy, garlicky, herby, goodness at its best. Now that I think about it I may have seen the pics when I finally finished my Keto Monkey Bread recipe.

When I am testing a recipe, many times I only make half just in case I end up not liking it and because uh, I am going to have to eat it but, that was not the case here. This keto Italian bubble bread is terrific and…I ruined another dinner cause…I immediately ate it after taking my pictures and about an hour before a good planned Sunday dinner.  This is not the first time I have done this and probably won’t be the last. I have a really good sugarfree Dry Italian Herbs Mix if you want to make your own. It makes tons at a time for use in the future.

  3. Mix And Set Aside
Instructions
  1. Bloom yeast & sugar in 1 cup warm water for 10 minutes or until foamy.

  5. Add olive oil to bloomed yeast and with processor on, slowly add to dry ingredients and run for 1-2 minutes. If needed, add more water 1 T at a time.
  6. You want to make sure there is enough water. Dough should hold together, have a loose consistency and should not be sticky on your hands. At this point the dough should have the same look and feel of regular bread dough.

  11. Divide dough into 4 quarters. Divide each quarter into 4 pieces and then the 16 pieces in half again for a total of 32 pieces.
  12. Quickly make into small balls, place evenly in pan, and brush liberally all over with garlic oil.
  13. Sprinkle with topping, cover and allow to rise about 15-20 minutes.
  14. Bake 25 minutes and slide on to serving platter.

Keto Lemon Garlic Aioli

Keto Lemon Garlic AioliKeto Lemon Garlic Aioli as shown with padron peppers. An aioli, as I know it, pretty much always has garlic in it and by garlic I mean GARLIC and served as an appetizer with padron peppers? Yikes, so good. Not too long ago chef Taffiny Elrod from NY, a twitter friend, became a real-life friend when she came to visit Portland for a food conference.

We ate at the spectacular restaurant OX and one of the appetizers we had was padron peppers in some to-die-for sauce.  I have always loved padrons just blistered and drenched in olive oil and lots of salt but as you can see and may find out that the addition of the keto lemon garlic aioli with the padrons are simply to die for.  Blistered padron peppers have what I consider a very mild heat but…every once in a while you might get a zinger.

Keto Orange Sauce

Keto Orange SauceKeto Orange SauceKeto Orange SauceKeto Orange SauceKeto Orange Sauce.  Whew an orange sauce with no orange juice? Yes, here it is, and if you weren’t told, you’d never know.  It is orangeyness at its best…with NO ORANGE JUICE. I do use a good quality extract diluted with alcohol and not a seed oil. The alcohol will gas off and the seed oil?-You will end up eating it as it will not.

There are so many ways to use this keto orange sauce. With Crepes Suzette, on Pulled Pork, chicken, scallops, most any fish, and my personal favorite, duck breast, which I have shown above. I happen to have access to a farm that raises and sells their ducks to a market in the area where I live so I am lucky in that respect, but you can always find whole duck in any Asian market, spatchcock it and use this keto orange sauce with it. Peking Duck has always been a special meal for me and with the advent of my Low Carb Hoisin Sauce I can pretty much have it any time I want to-and I do.

I don’t-but it you eat ice cream, this would probably make a pretty tasty topping and since it has butter in it, I think it would crackle before you got it served.

  1. No problem with refrigeration, as it really will not get hard and will last more than a week or two but who are we kidding. It simply won’t last as you will want to have it again and…again…and…again.
  2. If you do get it into a refrigerator, just let in sit on the counter for an hour or two and stir to get that beautiful sauce ready to use again. Any butter bits will melt immediately upon hitting any warm food.

Keto Brown Sugar Cookies

Keto Brown Sugar CookiesKeto Brown Sugar Cookies. Yep, and they are so easy too. Tons of butter to sooth any savage beast and They. Are. Huge. To be more exacting they are over 4″ huge so one is plenty enough after a good low carb dinner. A while ago I did a recipe for Giant Ginger Cookies and this is just kind of a sister-cookie. When baked, and after sitting, these keto brown sugar cookies have kind of a soft-crunchy texture but, that’s if you get people to leave alone long enough to actually sit.

Brown Sugar Cookies
Print
Ingredients
  1. 2¼ C Carbalose Flour***
  2. 3 Sticks Butter
  3. 1 C Just Like Sugar Brown***
  4. 30 Drops Liquid Sucralose***
  5. 2 Eggs
  6. 1 T Vanilla Extract
  7. ⅓ C Just Like Sugar Brown*** Additional for sprinkling on top.
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350° .
  2. Mix eggs, vanilla extract and Sucralose.
  3. In large bowl cream butter, then add and beat in egg mixture.
  4. Slowly add 1 C Just Like Sugar Brown.
  5. Slowly add in flour. Mixture should be a very thick dough.
  6. With a ¼ C scoop place 8 balls onto a parchment lined baking sheet and with your fingers, press each ball to flatten a bit.
  7. Generously sprinkle on more sugar and press with a flat surface to about 4" and it's the sugar that keeps them from sticking to whatever you use for the final flattening. I use, of all things, my meat pounder but whatever trips your trigger.
  8. Bake 18-20 minutes or until just beginning to brown at the edges.
  9. Repeat for last 8 cookies.
  10. Allow cookies to cool on sheets.

Notes
  1. I have a very large baking sheet that fits all the cookies at once but since you may not, it's why you either need 2 sheet pans or to repeat the process for all your cookies.
  2. Yes, they freeze very well, I wrap mine individually, and thawing is a snap.
  3. The dough will be fine if you are doing the cookies in two batches and they do not have leavening in them except for the eggs.

Keto Crepes Suzette

Keto Crepes SuzetteKeto Crepes SuzetteKeto Crepes SuzetteKeto Crepes Suzette.  Somewhere in one of the many recipes on this site I talked about having worked for the Broker Restaurants, a group of restaurants in Denver.  Mine was the Continental and it was the only one that did table-side cooking and yes, I wanted to increase my tips so when Eugene, our Maître d’ was busy, I would step in and do table-side for the other wait staff. One of the fancy dancy desserts we did was Crepes Suzette. Remembering that this was in the mid 70’s, a fully prepared table-side dinner was only between $9-$10. The crepes suzette was about $3. and that was a fortune back then. Whoa, those really were the good old days. Think of this; I lived up into the mountains, about a 50 minute drive, and sometimes had to work a split shift which meant a 2-3 hour afternoon break. I couldn’t go home & come back because the drive was too long but guess what I did get to do.

I went next door to the original Cherry Creek hole-in-the-wall (yeah only 950’ ft on 2 floors) Tattered Cover Bookstore and settled into the dreamworld that is books. Now, I would liken the Tattered Cover to Powell’s Books here in Portland, and Strand Bookstore in New York City. They are all three huge, they are iconic, and they are all independently owned and are NOT Amazon.

So, I have been a bit long winded and the keto crepes suzette recipe is so small and easy it’s ridiculous.  You will need a recipe for Zero Carb Flaxseed Meal Crepes to finish the dish.

Low Carb Desserts

Low Carb Desserts. I know, I know, I pretty much look like a low carb desserts junky here and that is absolutely not the case.  I do like small amounts of pretty much any dessert maybe 1-2 times a week but my LCHF eating lifestyle doesn’t really allow me to eat too many goodies after dinner as I am most often too full. I mostly make them now to dazzle dinner guests.  My absolute favorite listed below?  All of them.  My absolutely least favorite? None of them.  The first sign of an addict?  Denial.

DessertsFood Lagniappe:  When you are baking any kind of cake or bar I advise using professional square, rectangular, or round aluminum pans.  Compared to a glass baking dish aluminum is far and away the better heat distribution system.  No hot spots & no lop-sided cakes.  Magic Line Pans are the best quality available, they come in about every size & shape you will ever need and…they are made here in the USA.  Because I promote this set of pans several places on this site they keep selling out of them so if you don’t see the 6 pan combo call 309-747-2125 and they will make one for you.

Low Carb Dinners.  Whether you are preparing a dinner for yourself, your family, or guests, people are going to know you have fixed the food they have just partaken in and eaten was made with love. It would be impossible to eat any of these low carb dinners without the beginnings of a change in your health. If you will just try eating keto low carb for two weeks you will feel the changes taking effect and the longer you eat this way the better you will feel. The higher amounts of fat will get you to, and keep you with, a higher satiety level which will automatically keep you from eating more food that you need.

Think bearnaise or a compounded butter that you have gotten in a good restaurant. You know that “something” that makes you want to get back to the restaurant as soon as you can. That’s what a good sauce can do for food. To this day there are times I can remember exactly where I was when I had______and fill in the blank.

Be careful with this stuff as it is blow-your-brains-out spicy and then again, I’m guessing that’s why you are here.  If you are tired of the crap you get with Chinese takeout (if you even eat Chinese take out) then this super easy recipe is for you. If you are so inclined to sweeten it (no don’t)  you can sweetener to taste. I would suggest the recipe for Chinese BBQ Pork be served with this but it is also good with sliced pork on a good Lowcarb Bread or even on pulled pork mixed with the juices.

Keto Sherry Wine Vinaigrette

Keto Sherry Wine VinaigretteKeto Sherry Wine VinaigretteKeto Sherry Wine VinaigretteKeto Sherry Wine VinaigretteKeto Sherry Wine Vinaigrette. If you don’t know much about cooking or how to make a simple salad dressing,  you can make this. It is an easy emulsion dressing with all the flavor in the world and takes 10 minutes to do.  Keto sherry wine vinaigrette will need a bit of time to marry the flavors but that’s just time sitting on your kitchen counter and no, it does not need refrigeration and you can be doing other things while all this magic happens.

I have shown and used both the sherry and red wine vinegar because I think they make a good combo.  The sherry is much more mellow than any vinegar would be, but you also need a bit of vinegar for bite.  Wait until you taste this…you’ll see what I mean.

Keto Chicken Rice Soup

Keto Chicken Rice SoupKeto Chicken Rice SoupKeto Chicken Rice SoupKeto Chicken Rice SoupKeto Chicken Rice Soup.  It probably goes without saying that this soup has NO rice in it but…it does have cauliflower rice.  I don’t normally do too many soup recipes without heavy cream in them and this no exception.  Not only does it add extra fat, it just plain tastes better and can easily end up as a soup for dinner rather than something light before eating.  I love soups and one of things I like is how very easy they are to make, keto chicken rice soup is no exception, and it should come together quickly.  I made this with ½ a roasted chicken (what I called Jekyll & Hyde) and also retained about ½ the schmaltz (fond on the bottom of the roasting pan) to smear all over my chicken and to put into the soup.  I don’t much care for dried out old chicken so, at least for me, the fat helps, let alone the rich flavors it adds. If you can get your hands on a RossDown Chicken it is the best I have ever eaten.  It’s a Canadian product and I have found it in several Halal and Middle Eastern markets here in Portland.

Keto Blue Cheese Garlic Butter

Keto Blue Cheese Garlic ButterKeto Blue Cheese Garlic ButterKeto Blue Cheese Garlic Butter.  You know, we may never have realized it but if you have ever ordered steak in a restaurant chances are you have been served a compound butter a time or two.  Often enough it may arrive as a little puddle of something on top of your steak but boy oh boy, it sure was good. Compound butters are small but powerfully flavored allies in the meat world. Can you use a keto blue cheese garlic butter with vegetables?  Yes, of course you can but it just isn’t done that often because as garlic cooks it also mellows to milder, you probably would not want blue cheese in it and as a compounded butter you get the bite and flavor of GARLIC which, with a steak or meat of some kind is sometimes just what you want.  Coupled with an off the outside grilled steak?  Ooh La La La La La La.

One of the really nice things about a compounded butter is how wonderfully they freeze for use at another time and when you don’t have the time to throw a sauce together.  Just take your log out of the freezer, let it sit for 15 minutes, slice what you need and pop it back into the freezer for next time.

Keto chocolate mocha pie is rich, decadent, fabulous and doesn’t need to be saved for special occasions.

Chocolate Mocha Pie
Print
Crust
  1. 1¾ C Almond Flour
  2. ½ C Ground Pecans
  3. 6 T Just Like Sugar Brown*** (Paleo) Or 9 Drops Liquid Sucralose***
  4. ½ C Melted Butter
Filling
  1. 1 Divine 85% Chocolate Bar
  2. 4 Eggs (Divided)
  3. ⅓ C Hot Water
  4. 1½ t Instant Coffee (More If Stronger Coffee Flavor Is Wanted)
  5. 2 t Vanilla Extract (Divided)
  6. 1½ C Heavy Cream
  7. 12 Drops Liquid Sucralose (Or ½ C Sweetener Divided)
Crust
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Put almond flour into a medium bowl.
  3. In a small processor add pecans and Just Like Sugar Brown and process until pecans are ground.
  4. Add pecan mixture to almond flour stirring well, then mix in melted butter.
  5. Press into an 8” glass pie dish all the way around and to the top just like any regular pie crust.
  6. Blind bake crust 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees and then “tamp down” as it will puff up. Return to oven for about 5 additional minutes or until it starts to turn slightly brown. If it has puffed up again knock it back down. Put on counter to cool completely.
Filling
  1. Finely chop chocolate bar. You don’t want it chunky as your chocolate mixture won’t end up being smooth.
  2. Line up 3 bowls-2 medium and 1 large.
  3. Separate eggs making sure not to get any yolk in the whites. I do try to gently take the chalazae off the yolks as I don't want hard little cooked knots in my mousse.
  4. Put whites into 1 medium bowl and yolks into the large bowl, adding coffee, water, and add 6 drops sucralose or ½ of your sweetener.
  5. On medium low and whisking constantly, cook coffee yolk mixture until pretty hot and very frothy. Don’t worry, the eggs shouldn’t scramble because of the water content but you need it hot enough to eventually melt the chocolate.
  6. When yolk mixture is hot enough remove from heat, add 1 t vanilla, add grated chocolate all at once stirring to cover all chocolate, let it sit a minute or so and whip until all chocolate is thoroughly melted. Allow mixture to cool and it shouldn’t take too long. Chocolate will be very, very thick.
  7. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, first beat egg whites to stiff peaks. Making sure chocolate is cooled, FOLD in egg whites ½ at a time until well incorporated.
  8. In second medium bowl, beat whipping cream. Add vanilla & last 6 drops of sucralose or the other ½ of your sweetener.
  9. FOLD ⅔ of whipped cream into mixture until all is well incorporated and add to pie shell. Cover filling with remaining whipped cream and refrigerate until ready to eat.

Notes
  1. Before filling crust, make sure it is loose in the pie dish. It should not stick but once it's filled it might just a bit and that's not what you want.
  2. Not that this pie takes very long to prepare, but you can always make the crust ahead of time.
  3. If assembled just before service the crust will stay crunchy.
  4. Sorry for the crummy picture but hey, I'm a chef not a photographer and it shows quite well here.
  5. I sprinkled a little espresso powder on the pie---BIG mistake unless you do it just before serving as it immediately started to "melt". Probably best to use cocoa powder instead.

It was probably in about 1978-79 in a kind of upscale steakhouse joint just to the right off I-25 headed north in the Denver Tech Center.  You know the routine; waitress lists off the salad dressings and then tell us about this new dressing called buttermilk ranch.  I bit, ordered, and oh Lordy, It. Was. So. Good.  Of course I had never had anything even close and was obsessed to figure out how to make it. I never did need to learn to make it on my own because the next thing you know it was being shown at all the restaurant shows and it was suddenly available everywhere.  Now, it had actually been invented by a dude ranch owner in the 1950’s but as I used to eat in a lot of different restaurants, I had never come across it until this time. One of the first things you see in the ingredients list on a ranch dressing dried powder packet is sugar in the form of maltodextrin and though mine tastes like the original ranch I had had, it does not have any added sugar.

The reason I finally made my own keto ranch dressing from scratch all these years later is that I wanted to do a recipe for Chicken Milanese and I wanted it sugar-free.  I also eat Buffalo Wings from time to time and now…I have my very own keto ranch dressing so I made wings the  next night.  I would like to give a huge shout-out to Chef Taffiny Elrod from NY who became a real life friend from Twitter when she came to Portland to attend a conference a couple of weeks ago. Met and had a fabulous dinner at Ox restaurant after. Ran into Nora Gedgaudas  that night, we spoke briefly, and you know if Nora eats at Ox it’s a gonna be good.  Taffiny and Nicole gave me my own swag bag with a couple of cheeses and some of it is in the upper left picture.

Ranch Dressing

Ingredients
  1. ½ C Mayonnaise
  2. ¼ C Full Fat Sour Cream
  3. 2 T Full Fat Buttermilk
  4. 1½ T Dried Parsley Flakes
  5. ½ T Lemon Juice
  6. 1 t Maggi Seasoning (More To Taste Later If Needed)
  7. ¼ t Garlic Powder
  8. ¼ t Onion Powder
  9. ¼ t Fresh Ground Pepper
Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients, refrigerate for at least 4 hours and overnight is best.
  2. 8 Servings 2 T
  3. 119 Calories, 0.5 Protein, 13.3g Fat 0.8g Carbs, 0.1g Fiber, 0.7 Net Carbs
Notes
  1. This will make 1 C dressing which is about the amount you get in a bottle of store-bought stuff. If you decide you love this dressing it is probably a good idea to double the recipe because 1 C is not enough. Besides being better than Ranch Dressing making your own is a lot cheaper.

Keto Ranch Chicken Milanese

Keto Ranch Chicken MilaneseKeto Ranch Chicken Milanese.  Don’t think for one minute that I don’t look at recipes on the internet because I do…and lots of them. Most don’t interest me much but I came upon a Ranch Milanese with radishes & cucumbers as garnish which sounded sort of interesting to me.  The problem with nearly every recipe are the attending carbs in flour, panko crumbs, etc. which we are not interested in so…I have changed the high carby ingredients and it actually sounds better and probably tastes better than the original.

Yes, I do have Maggi seasoning sauce and the original recipe says it can be swapped out with soy sauce.  There is a HUGH difference in flavors and I used the Maggi. You may have been lucky enough at some point in your life to have eaten Kewpie Mayo and it is my belief the Maggi sauce makes this taste like Kewpie mayo. I also always have Aleppo pepper, use it extensively, and suggest you might get a little to try. It is available from most any Middle Eastern grocery store.  I believe once you have tried it, you too will always want it around. If you look closely at the buttermilk (Bulgarian) it is 3.5% butterfat and thick as mud. It you drink buttermilk, it is absolutely divine. It’s a bit tangier than the regular old anemic stuff but in my opinion it’s so much better.  I then freeze it in 2 T cubes and have when needed.

You may have left over ranch dressing and we all know the things you can do with it like;  dress a salad, add some cheese and bacon to use as a dip with veggies, serve it with Buffalo Wings and…you can always have Keto Ranch Chicken Milanese again. It’s best to make and refrigerate your dressing the day before using to be sure your flavors are mixed, mellowed, and married and it should only take you no more than 5 minutes to make it. I did use radishes as I wanted to show off my watermelon radishes but they are not necessary and not in the recipe. The tang of the vinegar coupled with the cucumbers is however, essential to the overall flavor of the dish.

Keto Italian Chicken DrumsticksKeto Italian Chicken DrumsticksKeto Italian Chicken DrumsticksKeto Italian Chicken Drumsticks.  I’m about out of stories regarding chicken drumsticks as this is the 4th and last one so if you are interested in the stories you will need to visit each of them.  I can say one thing though, whatever keto kitchen heaven smells like, this has got to be it. Garlicky, cheesy, herby heaven. The other three keto chicken drumstick recipes include AsianGreek, and Mexican and all of them are terrrrific. I do use my own recipe for Italian Herbs because not only it it so spot on…it has no sugar in it.  But if you have your favorite Italian herbs then by all means use them.  Keto Italian Chicken Drumsticks for the win.  You better believe that all that fresh basil (including the garnish) was eaten.  Have you ever had salted tomato with a leaf of basil on it?  It’s another taste bud heaven.

Keto Monkey Bread

Keto Monkey BreadKeto Monkey BreadKeto Monkey BreadKeto Monkey BreadKeto Monkey BreadKeto Monkey Bread.  It’s been a whirlwind of recipes since I came up with Keto Rum Caramel Sauce.  and this will probably be the last recipe for more than a couple of reasons but have given you enough to branch out and come up with your own.  I have had this recipe for keto monkey bread on the drawing board for about 5-6 months.  It’s not that I’m not busy because I am, but one would think that with all the other new Carbalose Flour dessert recipes I have done recently, that I should have done this before now.  Every once in a while I have to hit myself in the head and say oops, I coulda had a V-8.  This is one of those times.  My problem was getting the nut mixture in between the little dough balls and of course it really turned out not to be a problem at all.  Several months ago I did a recipe for Rich Rum Sticky Buns and this keto monkey bread uses nearly identical ingredients (a bit more butter) and just put together a little differently.  So stop monkeying around and get to makin.  I have shown the keto monkey bread on a couple of plates but the idea is really to individually pull each ball by hand and eat it.  Incredibly, it is not sticky, yes it is messy, and your kids will love eating it with their fingers.  I personally think about 4 balls is plenty enough as they are filled with so much fat but…that is up to you. Really easy to eat and very easy to overeat because of the oh-so-high fat content.

That sweet little 8″ angel food cake pan is something I have had for 45-50 years so keep that in mind when choosing your cake pan size.  I have found one by Chef Made with a removable bottom on Amazon for 18.99 and here is one made by Fat Daddio also on Amazon for 15.99.

Monkey Bread

Caramel Topping
  1. ¼ C Butter
  2. ¼ C Heavy Cream
  3. 2 T Sugarfree Maple Syrup***
  4. 1 T Rum
  5. ½ t Vanilla Extract
  6. 6 T Just Like Sugar Brown***
  7. ⅔ C Un-Toasted Pecans (To Be Used Later)
  8. 1 t Butter (To Be Used Later)
Nut Filling
  1. ½ C Pecans
  2. ¼ C Just Like Sugar Brown***
  3. 1½ t Cinnamon
  4. 6 T Melted Butter (To Be Used Later)
Dough
  1. 1½ C Carbalose Flour***
  2. 2 T Coconut Flour
  3. 2 T Gluten
  4. ½ t Salt
  5. ⅛ t Guar Gum
  6. ⅛ t Xanthan Gum
  7. 2 T Golden Flaxseed Meal
  8. 2 T Warm Water
  9. 1 Large Beaten Egg
  10. 2 T Heavy Cream
  11. 2 T Refined Coconut Oil (Un-Refined Is OK Too But Will Add What I Consider Too Much Coconut Flavor).
  12. 12 Drops Liquid Sucralose***
  13. ⅓ C Warm Water + More As/If Needed 1 T At A Time
  14. 1½ T Yeast
  15. ½ t Sugar
  16. 1 t Orange Extract (This Is An Important Essential Ingredient)
  17. 1 t Butter (To Grease Bottom Of Pan)
Caramel Topping
  1. This can and should be made a day or two in advance (for time’s sake). Be sure to hide it in the fridge or someone will get into it. Bring to room temperature the day of final assembly.
  2. In a small sauce pan barely, and I mean barely, melt butter, take off heat, add heavy cream, syrup, rum & vanilla.
  3. Begin mixing in Just Like Sugar 2 T at a time until all is incorporated.
  4. Bring to very slow simmer, stirring occasionally and cook for about 15-18 minutes. It will begin to darken and get a little thicker. The idea is to have an overall bit of bubbling for the total cooking period.
  5. The color will start out very light, get darker with cooking, and then lighten again.
  6. Cool to warm.
Nut Filling
  1. Put pecans, cinnamon, and just Like Sugar in small processor and grind until nuts are finely ground. Set aside. This can also be done a day or two ahead of assembly and trust me, it’s easier. I do mine the night before and it only takes a couple of minutes at most to do.
Dough
  1. Put first 6 ingredients in processor.
  2. Add 2 T warm water to flaxseed meal for 10 minutes, add to dry ingredients and pulse to mix.
  3. Bloom yeast with sugar in warm water for 10 minutes.
  4. Add Sucralose, orange extract, and melted coconut oil to top of bloomed yeast.
  5. Beat egg and add cream.
  6. Add egg mixture to bloomed yeast mixture.
  7. Start processor, add liquids, and process for 1-2 minutes or so.
  8. If needed, add more water 1-2 T at a time.
  9. Carbalose flour is not sticky but eggs are so this time your dough might be a little sticky to begin with and as you are cutting and forming dough to put into your pan it will then end up pretty much non-sticky. It's kind of like magic.
  10. Place dough in a small round pan, cover with film and let rise about 15 minutes.
Final Assembly
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Begin bringing caramel sauce to room temperature and when ready, heat slightly until warm and slightly liquified.
  3. As lightly as is possible grease bottom of pan with 1 t butter. Evenly distribute ⅔ C un-toasted pecans (they will get roasty-toasty in the oven). Butter is to hold the pecans in place more than anything else as the monkey bread will slip out with no help after baking.
  4. Invert dough onto countertop (or your trusty Silpat is perfect), cut dough in half and them cut into 24 pieces. Repeat with second half of dough for a total of 48 pieces.
  5. As best you can roll into balls and they DO NOT need to be perfect. (See Picture)
  6. Place 24 dough balls in kind of a zigzag around the bottom and on top of the pecans. Sprinkle with ½ of the nut filling and then drizzle with ½ the melted butter. Repeat with last 24 dough balls, nut filling and butter.
  7. Cover and allow to rise for about 20 minutes.
  8. Place monkey bread in oven for 25-30 minutes.
  9. Invert onto serving plate with the pecans on top.
  10. Allow to cool for 8-10 minutes.
  11. Drizzle warmed caramel topping all over top & down the sides and voilà, it’s ready.

Notes
  1. CAVEAT: I use the ingredients that I feel are the best available, for me personally. If you decide to make this (and I sure hope you do) I am unable to vouch for substitute sweeteners. I have multiple reasons for NOT using eryritol with or without oligosaccharides, food grade glycerin, or anything with probiotic tapioca fiber. None of them are as low in carbs as you may have been lead to believe.
  2. I do occasionally used EZ-Sweetz liquid Sucralose (and have for over 9 years with zero ill effects) as it adds a different depth of sweetness rather than leaving something one dimensional and neither of the products used here have any carbs in them no matter how much you use. None of the above mentioned can begin to say that which is why you see a nutritional label for 1 t or God forbid ½ t.

Keto Asian Chicken Drumsticks

Keto Asian Chicken DrumsticksKeto Asian Chicken DrumsticksKeto Asian Chicken DrumsticksKeto Asian Chicken Drumsticks.  I started making a small series of chicken drumstick recipes because my grocery store had a sale on them. Thus far this is the third along with Keto Mexican Chicken Drumsticks,   Keto Greek Chicken Drumsticks, with the last being Italian Drumsticks.  Little did I know how much I would love them.  As a little kid my favorite part of a chicken was, and has continued to be, the thigh meat and preferably with the bone out and with the skin left on.  Also, back 65-70 years ago, chicken were just as scrawny as well…a chicken and the drumsticks didn’t have enough meat on them to wad a shotgun.  I have two younger brothers who both liked them so um, magnanimously, I let them each have one and got a thigh instead.  Now I had to argue with my mom because she liked them too but I usually did get one of them.  Fast forward to 2019 and the chickens are nearly as big as whales and that includes even the drumsticks.  These have nearly zero carbs in them so um, eat as many as you wish but probably two keto Asian chicken drumsticks should be plenty.

Notes
  1. You taste this marinade turned dipping sauce just once and you will be a true believer.
  2. I would not marinate the drumsticks more than 8-10 hours as they have lemon juice in them and an acid tends to "cook" raw meat. Think fish as in cerviche.

Keto Pork Rind Zucchini Latkes

Keto Pork Rind Zucchini LatkesKeto Pork Rind Zucchini LatkesPork Rind Zucchini LatkesKeto Pork Rind Zucchini Latkes.  I was in the grocery store the other day and ended up buying a couple of zucchinis with nothing particular that I had in mind to do with them.  This is not necessarily a good way to buy food but um, I do it more often than from time to time.  I also had gotten a couple of jars of a new Pork Rind Crumbs from Netrition and I have been anxious to try them.  So, not having any idea how it would turn out but knowing it would be super easy, I decided to try making these.  Well Oh Lordy, besides being kind of pretty they are also so good.  I put the recipe for Asian Dipping Sauce with them, but they really do shine with a traditional dollop of sour cream.  They have a perfect pork flavor which is quite striking with the sour cream and just OK with the dipping sauce but neither has carbs to speak of so-your choice and either way, these keto pork rind zucchini latkes are the bomb.

Keto Mexican Chicken Drumsticks

Keto Mexican Chicken DrumsticksKeto Mexican Chicken DrumsticksKeto Mexican Chicken Drumsticks.  I am going to state this right up front that these keto Mexican chicken drumsticks are carbfree, as in zerocarb.  No carbs in the Taco Seasoning, no carbs in the olive oil and no carbs in the chicken.  So have at it and eat as many as you want.  Now, I guess there may be <.5g in the lime juice if you use it but it’s optional anyway and if you like to dip you drumsticks in some kind of sauce I made mine with a little lebna, a little sour cream and yes, a little more taco seasoning to taste and it was delicious.  You may have al little taco seasoning left over so just put it in a jar and use if for next time.  If you like Fajitas you might use it for them and then maybe in a Spicy Taco Hamburger Bowl.  As/if you look at all these recipes, you will notice they are all very kid friendly too.

If drumsticks are your “shtick” you might end up anywhere in the world with Greek Drumsticks, Italian Drumsticks, or Asian Drumsticks.

Keto Greek Chicken Drumsticks

Mediterranean Greek Chicken DrumsticksKeto Greek Chicken Drumsticks. Oregano? Rosemary? Garlic? Olive Oil? What’s not to like with a combo like that?  There are several other ways to fix chicken drumsticks and I will get to them a little later.  If you have kids they are going to love them, and you are going to love how ridiculously easy they are.  I needed four thighs for a dinner I was doing, the whole legs were on sale so…I had Frankie cut off the drumsticks and de-bone the thighs but leave the skin on.  What a bargain at $2.50/lb. minus my “geriatric day” 10% discount. Who says keto needs to be expensive?  So, the next time you think of drumsticks think Keto Greek Chicken Drumsticks. If you are interested in visiting other countries around the world you may also like  AsianGreek, or Italian drumsticks.  They are all wonderful and of course, as I said, very kid friendly.

Keto Tomato Cucumber RoundsKeto Tomato Cucumber RoundsKeto Tomato Cucumber RoundsKeto Tomato Cucumber Rounds.  I don’t know if anyone who reads and/or uses the recipes on this site has noticed this or not, but I do not have any categories under breakfast or snacks and I have lots of recipes under AppetizersSalads, and a few others under Odd Balls.  I personally do not believe in eating snacks and I pretty much eat once a day at around 3:00-4:00 in the afternoon.  I have eaten this way most all my adult life and about the only things that have changed are the amounts and to a lesser extent, what I eat.  This recipe is one that I would put under appetizers but it is actually eaten all over the Mediterranean and Middle East nearly everyday for breakfast. Yes, there are a few variations but not too many.  They eat pita bread and certainly lots of cheese.  People use the spices shown in copious amounts for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  I didn’t use olives because they are easier to eat with your fingers without them, and olives are always pretty much used as a scoop and conveyance vehicle for dips like hummus, real yogurt etc.  When I was in Dubai in 2010 I was introduced to this breakfast and have eaten and loved it ever since.  Me?  I eat mine as dinner-in a bowl-or…sometimes make it for dinner guests as shown-or…eat it as my salad.

These Keto Tomato Cucumber Rounds should be about 2-3 bites so be careful as you eat them because they are so good, you may end up like me, stuffing yourself with no room left for dinner. As an appetizer I would allow two rounds, as breakfast four rounds, as salad whatever you can get on the plate, and as dinner in a bowl, just pile it in there.  I try to take pictures before adding olive oil because it makes them so dark but rest assured…I do use it.

Mediterranean Tomato Cucumber Rounds
Print
Ingredients
  1. 2 Large Roma Tomatoes
  2. ½-¾ Cucumber
  3. ¼ C Labne (Or A Really Thick Yogurt)
  4. 1 t Mint
  5. 1 t Sumac
  6. 2 t Aleppo Pepper
  7. 2 t Za’atar
  8. 2 t Black Seed (Sativa)
  9. Salt
  10. 2-3 T Olive Oil
Instructions
  1. Slice each tomato into 8 ⅛” rounds trying to get 8 slices per tomato. Plate.
  2. Partially peel cucumber, slice into 16 rounds, spread top with 1 t labne and place on top of tomato.
  3. Lightly salt labne.
  4. Sprinkle with all spices then drizzle with olive oil.

Notes
  1. I don’t know how to tell you to use yogurt other than what I am showing. For the most part American yogurt, is too thin and watery so all I can say, you need a good quality thick high fat yogurt.
  2. Now, in Mediterranean and Middle East cuisine all of this would be drizzled copiously with olive oil and you may surely do this and it makes it a little less easy to eat with your fingers but hey, just lick you fingers.
  3. You serve this to anyone and they are going to KNOW they have had something different from what they have every had before.

Asian anything is always OK with me but these low carb Asian marinated pork chops are over the top as far as flavor goes, they couldn’t be much easier to make, and they don’t take all day to soak in some marinade.  Marinate 10-15 minutes tops, cook, and dinner on the table.

  3. Prep cilantro, green onions and quarter limes.
  4. Combine all ingredients down through the chili powder and mix thoroughly.
  5. Add chops, spoon with sauce, turn and spoon over again.
  6. Let sit 10 minutes, turn and spoon over one more time.
  7. With heat on low, cook marinade sauce.
  8. Swirl in 2 T butter one at a time. This will thicken the sauce.

Rib Rub

Rib RubRib RubRib RubRib RubRib Rub.  I have never been much of a fan of sweet BBQ sauces but a good dry keto rib rub?  Uh…yep, sign me up Scotty. This is so easy it’s ridiculous.  I don’t use any kind of vinegar mop, just a plain ole rub which is not even “rubbed” into the meat- only sprinkled liberally.  The ingredients below are for pork ribs and/or pulled pork but can easily be used on chicken too.  The recipe is for several full pork rib racks so if you don’t use it all it will last nearly forever and if you are going to need more then you can just double or triple the recipe.  Yes, it has a bit of zerocarb Just Like Sugar Brown to temper the heat, but this is really a savory rather than any drop-dead sweet concoction and remember, any or all of these ingredients can be adjusted to your taste buds. For me, I want to be able to taste my pork ribs (or any meat for that matter) and not drown them out with heat or sweet.  Ye Gads and oh, the kitchen smells this will generate.  I am sitting here writing this post and all I can smell is…the keto rib rub.

Notice there is no smoked flavor except what you will get in the chipotle powder.  Paprika is used in most rubs and at least for me, it is just a filler and not much of a flavor enhancer.  If you like it then by all means, please use some.

Low Carb Ahi Poke Bowls

Low Carb Ahi Poke BowlsLow Carb Ahi Poke BowlsLow Carb Ahi Poke Bowls.  This is another way to make Ahi Tuna Tartare but it’s a little faster and maybe a bit more traditional.  I have changed the sauce just because it is fun to have these wonderful low carb ahi poke bowls with different flavors but either way you are going to love it.

I was in the grocery store yesterday and as always, ahi tuna was expensive.  They also had plain ahi skewers for, are you ready for this, $12.00 per pound less than the steaks.  I don’t know about you but in my book that is a lot of money.  I asked what the deal was and was told the skewered meat comes in frozen and I am here to tell you that there in no difference in texture or taste between the two so I bought it skewered and cut it the same way I would cut a whole ahi steak and you can do the same. Not to plug Safeway but they also have one lb. packages of frozen ahi tuna and it was…drum roll please…$6.99. So if you divide that by 4 people it come to a scant $1.75 per person.  Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t eat well on keto because this is a perfect example of how you can.  There is scant prep work and these keto low-carb ahi tuna bowls can be on the table in about 45 minutes.  I have suggested and shown Keto Pickled Persian Cucumbers as one of the bowl accompaniments because they are so good but these bowls are a completely customizable dish and to be made the way you want them.

Keto Yellow Squash Soup

Keto Yellow Squash SoupKeto Yellow Squash SoupKeto Yellow Squash Soup.  Only in your dreams could you imagine such a delicious soup that is this easy. Throughout the summer I eat yellow squash in all kinds of ways and this is just yet another.  It is light and can be served cool, warmed or hot.  If served cool it is perfect for an outdoors picnic and it is filling because of the high fat content.  You will see ground pepper in the recipe but I actually prefer Aleppo pepper for many reasons, not the least of which because of its beautiful dark red color and if you ever get an opportunity to buy it-DO. It is that good and available in any Middle Eastern grocery.  Here in Portland, Oregon it is available in bulk so I can buy a pound anytime I want to.  Only use Amazon as a last, last, last resort.  They have a 2 oz. package for something like $10-$12 which is ridiculous.  So, if you want a terrific soup to eat in each season of the year, this keto yellow squash soup is for you.

  2. Add chopped squash, chicken base and water to onions and simmer until soft or about 15-18 minutes.
  3. Take off heat and with a stick blender whir until you get the texture you want. My opinion is not to make it totally smooth but to leave a small bit of chunkiness to it.
  4. Stir in heavy cream and bring back to temperature if serving hot-otherwise taste, correct seasoning and it's ready to go.

Keto Scalloped Daikon Radishes

Keto Scalloped Daikon RadishesKeto Scalloped Daikon RadishesKeto Scalloped Daikon RadishesKeto Scalloped Daikon RadishesKeto Scalloped Daikon Radishes.  So…we had a new Eastern European Market open here in Portland, I went to see what it was about but what I was really looking for was veal-in any form I could get it.  No primal cuts of any kind but they did have veal sausages (what I would call real bratwurst or weisswurst) but I had never seen nor tasted veal baloney so I bought some.  Oh for heaven’s sake.  To best describe it I would call the consistency a combination of heavy cream and butter-it is that creamy-anyway to die for.  Just because I could, I also bought some black radishes and when I got home, I decided to use a combo of both, coming us with this keto scalloped daikon radishes recipe.  What? You ask.  The recipe says daikon radishes.  Well, here’s the deal.  I did make it with the black radishes but they were large, a little tough, and took forever to cook, so I switched the recipe to daikon radish which will par-boil and soften in about 15-20 minutes or about the same time it takes to boil potatoes for scalloping.

This Keto Scalloped Daikon Radishes recipe is a take on one of my old (cheap) college favorites. Back in the day and in my case the late 60’s, one of the least expensive foods you could buy was potatoes. At the time potatoes were about .49 for a 10 lb. bag and ham was about .49 per lb. So if you think about it this recipe was a really inexpensive way to serve 4-6 hungry college students.  The recipe card calls for cubed ham since I’m pretty sure you won’t find veal baloney anywhere anytime soon.

Scalloped Daikon Radishes

Ingredients
  1. 2 Lbs ⅛-¼" Sliced Daikon Radish. If They Are Not Too Large In Diameter Then Cool. If They Are Little Fat Rats I Would Quarter Them After Slicing (On A Mandoline). The Idea Is To Have Pretty Much Bite And Even Sized Pieces
  2. ½ Lb Good Quality Cubed Ham (No Water Added If Possible)
  3. 4 Oz Shredded Gruyere Cheese (Cheddar Works Too but Gruyere Gives The Best Flavor)
  4. 1 Small Diced Onion
  5. 1½ C Heavy Cream
  6. ¼ Green Onion Tops
  7. 1 T Butter (Divided)
  8. 2 t Dry Mustard Powder
  9. 2 t Chicken Base
  10. ¼ C Parmesan Cheese
  11. ¼ C Pork Rind Dust
  12. 1 t Pepper
Instructions
  1. When ready, preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Slice daikon radishes, cover and simmer until fork tender 15-20 minutes depending on how thick you cut them. Drain well and put into a medium bowl.
  3. Quickly sauté ham in 1 t butter and add to radishes.
  4. Sauté onion in remaining butter until just softened.
  5. Add heavy cream, mustard, and chicken base and reduce slightly.
  6. Pour cream mixture into ham & radishes, add pepper & green onions, and mix well.
  7. Mix Parmesan cheese and ground pork rinds.
  8. Put into glass casserole dish, top with Gruyere cheese, and top with Parmesan cheese mix.
  9. Put into oven and bake until bubbly around all the edges and topping is lightly browned. If needed, broil a bit to brown but don't walk away as the top will burn very quickly.

Keto Loaded Red Radishes

Keto Loaded Red RadishesKeto Loaded Red RadishesKeto Loaded Red RadishesKeto Loaded Red Radishes.  Not long ago I did a recipe for Smashed Red Radishes and that recipe led to this one.  I’ll not bore you with how I got to them but you can read all about it on the other recipe.  Of course this is a take on what might be hashed brown potatoes with nearly none of the carbs and with a couple of eggs on top, and with some bacon or sausage, this makes a terrific power-punched breakfast or in my case, dinner.  After these keto loaded red radishes I will be done with red radish recipes, at least for awhile, and I am hoping you can see by now that they make a great, versatile potato substitute.

The only thing I can think of that they are no so good for is mashing.  They look like some kind of pink applesauce with salt, pepper, and butter.  Tasted great but it’s kind of hard to get past the look and your kids;  would probable think they were pretty nifty.

Keto Smashed Red Radishes

Smashed Red RadishesSmashed Red RadishesSmashed Red RadishesKeto Smashed Red Radishes.  Man are these good.  I had eaten at The Country Cat here in Portland and ordered the bacon duck meatloaf that came with onion, mushrooms & smashed potatoes.  Sadly, I gave them to a friend because I don’t eat potatoes but when I got home I thought they might be the perfect thing to do with red radishes.  Interestingly, I had done a couple of plain ole sous-vide eggs as a test and they were so good I was going to have them again with a sausage and some sautéed cauliflower rice. Oops, and plans changed.  I had some leftover meatloaf and also some of the house made restaurant sausage with a cheese spread we had ordered so what you see in the bowl are my leftovers, keto smashed red radishes, more of those unbelievable sous-vide eggs and wow, what a mélange of food flavors.

The smashed red radishes were supposed to be the star of the show, and they are, but the whole combo of foods was an absolute knockout. If you ever get to Portland, Oregon The Country Cat is what I would call “A Best Of PDX Restaurant”.  The chef owners Adam and Jackie Sappington have been featured on many of the foodie TV shows and are killer when it comes to butchering their own pork.  Anyway…

I will be making more of these in the very near future and the next time will be not only with mushrooms and onions but I will be topping them with cheese, bacon, sour cream, and green onions and calling them “loaded” so-the last sentence is just a heads-up.  Put a couple eggs on top, a side of bacon or sausage, and have at it for breakfast.

Keto Sticky Toffee Pudding

Keto Sticky Toffee PuddingKeto Sticky Toffee PuddingKeto Sticky Toffee PuddingKeto Sticky Toffee Pudding.  Not sure how this recipe came about but I had been thinking about a sticky toffee pudding cake I used to make for a restaurant I worked in.  I used to tell people who ordered it for the first time that it would be free if…they could guess the sweetening ingredient in it.  I never did have to give a free piece away although I did hear some pretty funny answers.  Now if I had been in England I’d have lost every time as it is a favorite dessert there, on the menu in many a pub, and made with dates-lots and lots of dates.  I have to say it was disgustingly good but oh, the carb counts, they must have been horrendous and I have seen anywhere from between 66g and 80g.  So this is my rendition of a keto sticky toffee pudding and I think you will find it quite easy to make but most of all…you will love it.

Notes
  1. This is a very dense, rich dessert and I would suggest you not eat a very large piece to begin with. I personally would (and did) cut it into 12 pieces and if you need more-have another piece. It may take a while but after dinner and a piece of this pudding it will hit you and could make you feel very full.
  2. CAVEAT: I use the ingredients that I feel are the best available, for me personally. If you decide to make this (and I sure hope you do) I am unable to vouch for substitute sweeteners. I have multiple reasons for NOT using eryritol with or without oligosaccharides, food grade glycerin, or anything with probiotic tapioca fiber. None of them are as low in carbs as you may have been lead to believe.
  3. I do occasionally used EZ-Sweetz liquid Sucralose as it adds a different depth of sweetness rather than leaving something one dimensional and neither of the products used here have any carbs in them no matter how much you use. None of the above mentioned can begin to say that which is why you see a nutritional label for 1 t or God forbid ½ t.

Keto Ahi Tuna Tartare

Keto Ahi Tuna TartareKeto Ahi Tuna TartareKeto Ahi Tuna Tartare. Maybe better known as Poke (poh-kay) but this one is molded instead of served in a bowl.  Wouldn’t you figure that if I ate Carpaccio and Steak Tartare that I would also eat raw ahi tuna?  Well, that would be me and uh, millions of other people.  A very simple dish to make and this is an elegant presentation whether served as an appetizer or main course and I personally ate mine as my main dinner.  Sometimes all you need is a little nudge to try something new and I am here to give you that little nudge and to try some keto ahi tuna tartare.

Keto Red Radish Potato Salad

Red Radish Potato SaladRed Radish Potato SaladKeto Red Radish Potato Salad.  No, and not made with any potatoes but you will never, ever know.  It looks like potato salad, it tastes like potato salad but…it has no potatoes-go figure.  The first “potato” salad recipe I put up was made with daikon radish but this is easier in that it does not take as long to cook red radishes and…it really does look like it was made with little red potatoes.  It’s summer now, lots of people are cooking out and picnicking, so this dandy little number is perfect timing.  Good with hamburgers, hot dogs, Fried Chicken, and the sky’s the limits.

For those of you who see that little bottle of Spike in the picture?  It is divine in this keto red radish potato salad, can be found in nearly all grocery stores and if you make egg salad it is the perfect blend of spices to add.  I listed salt below but if you have Spike I would use it~and do.

Keto Black Seed Red Radishes

Keto Black Seed Red RadishesKeto Black Seed Red RadishesKeto Black Seed Red Radishes. Who’d a thunk something so simple to make could taste so good.  This was originally a dish made with potatoes and probably came from India.  Please don’t confuse black seeds with black sesame seeds because there is a world of difference and as you might imagine, with a little ginger and turmeric thrown in, tastes a bit like curry, (not really) but with no coconut milk.

Keto Black Seed Red RadishesKeto Black Seed Red RadishesIn most health discussions regarding black seeds (Nigella Sativa) you will see it being used as an oil but for our purposes we are using the whole seeds.  Besides being healthy, their taste is incredible.  They are used all over the Middle East and Africa and I have to say I am in love with the taste and sprinkle them prodigiously on all kinds of dishes. Notice how different they look from black sesame seeds, they are smaller, and have rather sharp, pointed angles.  Here are a couple of recipe pics showing how I use them. The first is an African Peanut Soup and the second is a Keto Lemon Tahini Mint Salad Dressing.  Keto black seed red radishes for a completely different and fabulously tasting vegetable side dish.

  2. Yes, and you can mix the sour cream into the radishes too. I didn't do it because I wanted you to see the beautiful colors before covering them.

Keto Asian Onion Relish

Keto Asian Onion RelishKeto Asian Onion RelishKeto Asian Onion Relish. If you like onions this is heavenly.  Not something you eat a ton of at any given time, but it goes really well as a side dish to a lot of meats and particularly  well with Crispy Pork Belly.  It is very easy and made in about 10 minutes at most.  It should be refrigerated for 2-3 hours but that doesn’t count in any prep time. You can make it in the morning and have it ready for dinner.  The Asians seem to have a gift for making foods that are sweet, sour, bitter and salty with a little umami thrown in and this has it all.  Anytime you are using even a little soy sauce you are going to get umami and as I said, keto Asian onion relish has it all.  I had already named this as keto before I realized it was not.  It is actually low carb but the actual fat content percentage is only 35% just so you know.

Notes
  1. For as little sesame oil as most recipes call for please, make sure it is 100% sesame oil and not mixed with some other seed oils which is definitely not cool.
  2. This is a pretty spicy little number but if you want even more add more red pepper flakes as appropriate.
  3. If you don't already have a good sesame oil then by all means please use olive oil instead. It will not have the intense flavor of sesame but it is pretty danged good and the idea is that it is an onion relish and the flavor of onions will come through loud and clear.

Keto Dilled Red Radishes

Keto Dilled Red RadishesKeto Dilled Red RadishesKeto Dilled Red RadishesKeto Dilled Red Radishes.  I am in the process of adding new recipes for red radishes as potato substitutes and this keto dilled red radishes is a dilly. Yeah, I think I’m so funny.  Anyway, I used to make Dilled Celery Root which of course has its own unique flavor and I think red radishes make an even better sub for this vegetable dish because it has a more neutral flavor, is more akin to potatoes, and certainly looks more like little red potatoes.  I love celery root but for the average guy it is more difficult to work with and hey, everybody knows what red radishes are. The recipe is so easy it’s ridiculous so…if you like potatoes (and butter) you will love these.  At this point there is one other recipe using red radishes, Garlic Rosemary Roasted Radishes, and I hope you get the idea that for any other recipe on this site that uses daikon radishes (and there are many), you can sub red radishes.  One other note:  Red radishes take about one third the time to cook as daikons and when you are cooking for your hungry family, time means a lot.  In my opinion the very best pairing with these keto dilled red potatoes is Stuffed Shrimp though they go with pretty much anything.

Keto Mushroom Grillades

Keto Mushroom GrilladesKeto Mushroom GrilladesKeto Mushroom Grillades

Keto Mushroom Grillades. Somewhere on this huge site I have a recipe for Low Carb Grillades Over Cheesy Cauliflower Grits and for this recipe I have subbed mushrooms for the beef.  Despite the list of ingredients, it is very easy to make, and is a terrific side dish to just about any meal. (Or meat).  I have not listed it with the cheesy cauliflower grits but if you want them, then by all means use them for a great meatless meal.  I most often eat a meat of some sort with dinner but that is totally up to you.  I consider cremini and portobello mushrooms as a good stand-in for meat so…please, use your own best judgment.  Speaking of meat (who me)?  If you don’t think a good steak (or chicken or pork) nestled on top of these keto mushroom grillades isn’t good~please, think again.  Be sure you get “fresh” creminis. The ones I bought were particularly small but as it turns out were the perfect size for the dish.  If they are “open” and the gills are black, they are well past any prime-time playing.  I guarantee that you don’t want to clean out the gills and you might as well buy portobellos.
