Mango Chutney

MANGO CHUTNEY Mango is not a fruit that is often seen as part of a keto diet as this wonderful fruit contains so much natural sugar (and therefore carbs).  However, as I’ve said before, I am not a keto purist, so because I love mango so much, I have worked on recipes where I can

Raita

RAITA This lovely, cooling and fresh accompaniment is perfect to serve with my Indian Samosa Pinwheels or to be used as an individual salad dish.  It takes just minutes to prepare and this recipe produces a 250g tub of Raita, which is roughly 10tblsp.  Each tblsp of Raita comes in at 0.8g net carbs.  The

Roast Beetroot

ROAST BEETROOT I just love beetroot.  I particularly love it roasted or pickled.  This easy roast beetroot recipe is a favourite in our family and although not a keto purist, I have adapted this recipe to be as keto and low-carb friendly as possible.  3 medium beets are used in this recipe and this will

Roasted Romanesco Cauliflower

ROASTED ROMANESCO CAULIFLOWER This is a truly lovely vegetable dish.  This lovely, earthy, dark green and beautifully shaped cauliflower is roasted with lemon and garlic and is the perfect accompaniment to roast beef (and keto Yorkshire Puddings) or with roasted or pan-fried chicken.  The lemon and garlic bring a fresh taste to what is sometimes

Raspberry Coulis

RASPBERRY COULIS This lovely sweet and tart coulis is perfect for serving over Panna Cotta or Ice-Cream.  It takes just a few moments to make, can be stored in your fridge for a couple of weeks (if it lasts that long) and one batch will make approximately 350ml of coulis, which equates to 24 tablespoons

Persian Rice

PERSIAN RICE This is the perfect accompaniment to Persian Lemon Chicken Skewers.  This rice is made from cauliflower to qualify as a keto or low-carb alternative, but is just perfect with the addition of the saffron, turmeric, chives and toasted almond slivers.  This lovely, exotic and tasty dish comes in at just 8.5 net carbs

Crusty White Bread Rolls

CRUSTY WHITE BREAD ROLLS

This wonderful bread roll recipe comes courtesy of www.thehungryelephant.ca.  It’s the nearest recipe I’ve found to real, crusty, white bread rolls.  A lovely crust and soft, fluffy bread roll inside.  Simply delicious with just your favourite dairy butter and so easy to make; made and baked within 20 minutes.  Perfect for serving with keto lasagna or for burgers and cold sandwiches.  I make 4 rolls with this recipe (rather than 5) so the net carb count comes in at 4 per roll.

Strawberry Jam

STRAWBERRY JAM Summer is thinking about arriving here in the UK, so I’ve been inspired to make something with our rather wonderful English strawberries – and what could be nicer than Strawberry Jam?  This easy to make, keto-friendly, sugar-free version of this English classic is sweet and delicious and just perfect on homemade keto scones

“Lundy” Cabbage Casserole

‘LUNDY’ CABBAGE CASSEROLE

This lovely dish is the perfect accompaniment for all meat and chicken dishes.  It is particularly good with pork, bacon, ham and sirloin steaks.  It’s a recipe I’ve adapted from www.dietdoctor.com and is now a firm favourite in our household.  I use savoy cabbage as it tends not to go as soft as other varieties and you can use whichever hard cheese is your favourite.  It’s border-line keto as this recipe comes out as a low-carb 11 carbs per serving.

Cauliflower Cheese

Cauliflower Cheese

This Sunday Lunch accompaniment classic is brilliantly easy to make and includes lashings of incredibly rich and cheesy sauce with a firm (not soggy) cauliflower. This lovely dish is 6.5g per serving if you divide the recipe below by six. 

Tirokafteri (Spicy Greek Cheese Dip)

TIROKAFTERI  

(Spicy Greek Cheese Dip)

This is a wonderful, thick and chunky, dip that can be spread on keto crackers for a quick and tasty lunch or snack.  This lovely recipe takes just minutes to prepare and the chilli spice level can easily be adjusted to taste.  I like it quite spicy.  The whole pot of Dip is just 15 carbs and covers approximately 30 crackers depending on how much you like to load them!  You just have to decide how to serve it…

Amazing Yorkshire Puddings

AMAZING YORKSHIRE PUDDINGS Being a Yorkshire lass, there’s nothing better than Sunday Lunch (or any lunch for that matter) including Yorkshire Puddings so, it’s been a relief and a welcome revelation for me to discover that Yorkshires can be made without using wheat.  Although Arrowroot (the wheat substitute) contains some starch carbohydrate, Yorkshire made this
