I posted a recipe of Cream-baked Broccoli a little while ago (it’s a lush recipe: rich, filling and full-flavoured, please try it). However, I wanted to take the concept up a notch and add crispy bacon and Cheddar. Can we all take a moment to high-five the keto way-of-life: what other “diets” can encourage adding bacon and cheese?… Anyway, I created this recipe in 4 individual little stoneware pots (because its SO cute) but you can make this same recipe in an appropriately-sized dish if you choose to – as long as the end-result serves 4 people in even-sized portions as that is how the macros were calculated..
These mini bacon, prawn and avocado kebabs are like someone said, “let’s take all the best keto items and grill them on a skewer!” Bacon? “Yes please!” Prawns? “Yes please!” Avocado? “Oh, stop it, now you are just showing off!” They are a little finicky to make, but totes worth it in the end. A fun, tasty appetiser at your next braai (BBQ). Please note though, that tamari is used in this marinade and soy is not permitted on keto, hence my keeping this titled as low carb.

Everything tastes awesome with bacon with its lovely salty, smokiness… This side dish of stir-fried greens with bacon is sensational! A large portion of this could easily stand as a meal on its own, but it would be better for your macros if this recipe was made for two as a side dish and served alongside a nice portion of protein, such as pork chops. TIP: use only the sliced white parts of leeks as the green ends are bitter. Be sure to check out all the other SIDE DISHES ideas on the site.
I love big, bold flavours that slap me right through the face. Craving pasta happens to all of us, but thanks to Eat Water’s ‘fettuccine’, I can make a creamy sauce and enjoy it with their konjac (shirataki) fettuccine, making a great keto pasta dinner. A few nights ago, I used everything I had in the fridge to make this deeply-satisfying dinner.
These little zero carb keto breakfast ‘muffins’ are something of a mini-frittata. They are very rich, so one batch could last you a couple of mornings (they store well in the fridge). Pop them in the microwave for a quick keto-friendly breakfast. Do change up the filling – mushroom, peppers and different cheese all work well. If you can’t be bothered with cleaning the muffin tin (eggs are notorious for sticking), use cupcake cases. One serving = 2 muffins.
