Buttered Asparagus with Parmesan (Keto)

Keto Buttered Asparagus

OK, let’s be honest here.. everything tastes better with butter and this is merely an idea with some cheffy techniques added to help you prepare perfect buttered asparagus (and macros calculated to help you along). If you are okay with your urine smelling funky for a day, try this super-simple recipe. And if you don’t suffer from bizarre-smelling urine after eating asparagus, consider yourself a very small percentage of the population. (I will leave you to Google what I am on about, if you don’t already know.) Enjoy this lovely, easy side dish – and be sure to also check out the Brown-buttered Brussels Sprouts on the site #EatYourGreens!!

Cashew Nut ‘Cheese’ Sauce (Vegan)

Cashew Nut Cheese Sauce

Ok I admit, I am jumping on the Veganuary band-wagon here BUT only for a day (because….. well, bacon…?!)Here is a delicious ‘cheese’ sauce which is so versatile. I call it a ‘cheese’ sauce because the Nutritional Yeast Flakes in it add a deep umami ‘cheesy’ flavour which is absolutely delicious – especially when served over cooked Broccoli. I have created this for my dairy-free readers here on M&L … Happy 2019!

Stir-fried Greens with Bacon (Keto; Paleo)

Keto Cabbage Bacon Stir Fry

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.
