Keto Courgette Cheese Fritters with Spicy Tomato Relish

Keto Courgette Cheese Fritters

The spicy tomato relish really is the star of the show with this dish, as it cuts through the rich, cheesy courgette fritters – it adds a spicy, sweet and acidic freshness which I find is essential. These fritters may be a little too rich and too high in protein to serve as a side dish, but they will make a great breakfast or light lunch option at 2.6g carbs per serving.

I get so many messages from friends wanting to know what knives I use. When I finished culinary school (now, almost 10 years ago), Funnyman bought me a Robert Welch Cook’s Knife and… I LOVE IT. I use a hundred times a day, I sharpen it with pride and it still lives in its protective box. No one is allowed to touch it, not even Mark – unless he wants me to use it on him. Coming up to Christmas, if you are looking to get a great knife set for your loved one, RW have a set now available – a perfect gift for the foodie in your life. So, to cut a long story short, I thought it would be a great time to showcase what knives I use, especially on this dreamy side dish which is so simple to make and will sit perfectly on the side of your grilled steak, or roast this Christmas.

Keto Celeriac Dauphinoise

Coming from South Africa, a (mandatory) Potato Bake was the highlight of any braai – especially in my family where my aunty and cousin would get frequent requests to bring one along to family gatherings. (They would add bacon and mushroom soup powder if I can recall correctly.) It is a wonderful memory and one that deserved mention here. Anyway, after moving to the UK, I used to make my own version, which was more of a classic Dauphinoise. After going keto, not being able to tuck into one stung a little, until recently when I discovered how low in carbs celeriac was! (Up until then, I avoided it thinking it was a root vegetable and therefore a no-no). So, I adapted the exact recipe I used to do, but used celeriac instead of potatoes. Fantastic results, and perfect to enjoy alongside the Pork Belly and Keto Gravy I posted on Monday.

Keto Cauliflower Rice

Keto Cauliflower Rice

This is a nifty way to mimic rice when you are serving a dish that needs all its lovely sauces mopped up. I cooked down onions and garlic to add more flavour before adding and cooking the blitzed cauliflower. It’s high in fibre and filling. You can play around and pimp it using different freshly chopped herbs or flavoured oils, but this recipe below is a good ‘base’, so go wild…
