TOAD IN THE HOLE
This lovely family favourite is so quick and easy to make and gives you that really satisfying, traditional, home-cooked supper feeling. Using this blog’s Yorkshire Pudding recipe and simple pork sausages from our local butcher, I can’t think of a much better choice for a cold, rainy evening. There are 10g of carbs per serving.
STEAMED MONKFISH & PARSLEY SAUCE
This is a wonderful, quick and easy, dish to prepare for supper (or even a substantial lunch). The meatiness of the monkfish provides for a filling and satisfying meal and at less than 4 carbs per serving, this is a perfect keto meal, full of flavour and goodness. You’ll need a steamer for this recipe, but this could be cooked with the fish wrapped in a greaseproof paper parcel and baked in the oven.
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
This lovely winter dish has been given the keto treatment by using cauliflower mash. When I first tried it on my family, they hadn’t even realised it wasn’t potato mash! It’s just 10g of carbs per serving, but with some steamed or creamed spinach, you’ll not need much else.
CHEESE & ONION QUICHE
This wonderfully easy quiche is a staple in our family. You can dress it up or down as you like and served with either a green salad or some keto-friendly vegetables, it’s a must. With only 10g carbs per serving, it’s likely to become a go-to quick, supper or lunch for you too!
RUSTIC MINCED BEEF PIE
Wonderful rustic suet pastry crust on top of a minced-beef, onion and mushroom filling. A true winter-warmer that is full of flavour and only 7.5 carbs per serving.
A firm family favourite of ours, I just had to adapt our traditional family recipe to enable us to continue to enjoy it whilst observing our keto and low-carb diets. We like quite large portions, so this comes out at 9g each if you cut 6 portions from the recipe. Using courgettes in place of the regular pasta has been a revelation. It works!
ROAST CHICKEN BREASTS WITH
LEMON & HERBS
This is one of those wonderful rustic dishes that takes just 10 minutes to prepare in the morning and then is simply put into the oven to bake, with an enticing aroma of tangy lemon and herbs filling the kitchen. With only 4 carbs per portion, this is a hearty and delicious addition to any menu.
This dish is wonderfully versatile as it sits alongside steaks, roast chicken and pork just beautifully. It is rich and creamy and hardly has any carbs at all. This recipe comes in at only 3.6 carbs per person. Rich in vitamin C, vitamin K and iron, it’s a delicious little powerhouse of goodness for all keto and low-carb diet enthusiasts.
CHICKEN GARAM MASALA
Satisfy your spice cravings. If you fancy something exotic that is quick and easy to make, then this lovely Indian dish is a must and only has 10g carbs per serving. It’s one of my go-to favourites and is easily adaptable to transform into delicious Thai curries too (which I’ll detail on separate posts). I serve it with cauliflower rice and keto naan bread, which I’ll also detail on separate posts. It’s just like being at your local Indian restaurant!
CHICKEN & MUSHROOM PIE
A classic pie with a wonderful Keto twist. Crispy pastry pies packed full of chicken breast and mushrooms to deliver a hearty pie, worthy of challenging any pie. These hearty pies come in at a total of 11 carbs each and are the perfect main course for a wintry day.
