Low-carb Cabbage and Mince Rolls

Keto Cabbage Mince Rolls

Get a little creative with ground beef and savoy cabbage and spend some time making these attractive little parcels. I used the full yield of the Roasted Tomato Sauce recipe for this dish, so be sure to have that prepped and ready before beginning. (You could, alternatively use 500g / 18oz of passata, but I want to encourage you to make your own sauces so you know exactly what has gone into them.) One serving = 2 parcels (as pictured) so this recipe will happily feed a family of 4.

Low-carb Sausage and Cabbage Soup

Low Carb Sausage and Cabbage Soup

You wouldn’t think that such simple ingredients could create a soup that would pack such a punch like this one can – and its all thanks to the Poles who brought us delicious Kielbasa (a smoked sausage found in the deli meat aisle.) For my South African readers, these are what we have come to know and love as ‘Russians’. This recipe is a great example of what we refer to as Dirty Keto. Its a low-carb soup (only 10g carbs per hearty bowl)… but the small amount amounts of wheat and soy found in the sausages are considered highly frowned upon with the keto police. And they are correct, wheat is inflammatory and the Kielbasa itself is a processed meat. BUT …if you are not so strict and you are happy to give this a go on your low-carb / dirty keto journey, you will love the homely, hearty flavours the Kielbasa brings, along with the glorious flavour of smoked paprika. (Plus, its fun to be filthy once in a while….) If its not substantial enough as a main meal, serve it up with a slice or two of the Quick Chia Keto Bread.
