Nothing like taking a good ole southern side and turning it into a great Keto side. If you’re struggling to find a great side dish to take to a party or host, you should definitely make this broccoli salad. And as usual, you can add or remove ingredients as you see fit. You can always just use these recipes as a guide.
Freeze dried cranberries (not particularly keto but your guest may enjoy them)
Salted sunflower seeds – mine will be on the side and added as it’s served
We will want to start by making the dressing first. In a medium bowl, add your mayo, apple cider vinegar and keto sweetener. Stir together until nice and smooth and set aside.
Now, lets start on the salad part. Start by chopping your red onion.
Next, clean your broccoli and cut it up. I prefer my broccoli salad without the stems. Of course, you cut it up how you prefer to eat it. I just cut the tops off. Put these in the bowl once your 2 heads are cut.
Now, throw in your cheddar cheese and bacon crumbles and give this salad a good toss to get it all mixed together.
Now, take your dressing and pour over the top of your tossed salad. Hit it with a little bit of pepper. Mix really good until it’s all coated. This should only take a few minutes.
Cover in foil/saran wrap and put into the fridge. This will be best after several hours in the fridge or even the next day. The longer it sits, the better it gets. Eat within 4 days then throw away, but I doubt there will be any left! Hope you enjoy.
The nice thing about growing cauliflower in your garden is that you can have cauli on demand! Tonight I just decided that I wanted to kick them up a notch. So why not some buffalo parm cauli bites!! These were very tasty and very simple to make.
1 head cauliflower
2tbs grass fed butter
1 cup Buffalo sauce off choice
Grated parmesean to taste
Garlic powder to taste
Salt/pepper to taste
Wash your head off cauliflower and cut into desired dippin size.
In a large bowl, add your sauce, melted butter and garlic powder. Stir well until combined. Throw in your cut cauliflower and stir until all your pieces are coated well.
Dump your cauli bites into your air fryer. Add your salt, pepper and sprinkle with grated parmesean at this time.
Air fry at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until you’re satisfied with the tenderness. Pair with any protein or eat alone. Also, add your favorite keto dippin sauce! I chose sour cream and guacamole and this was a great combo. Enjoy!
Italian night and missing bread sticks? Or, maybe you are having pizza night and wish you had some cheesy bread sticks as well. Well, miss them no more. You can easily whip these up in less than 20 minutes, including cook time.
2 cups low moisture shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 natural shredded cheddar
In a microwave safe bowl, add your 2 cups of mozzarella and Italian seasoning and microwave for 90 seconds. Remove and give a good stir.
With your cheese still nice and hot, add 1/2 of your almond flour. Don’t put the entire 1/2 cup in at the same time because it is harder to mix. After you get the 1st half nice and mixed, now go ahead and add in the other 1/2. Mix really well until you have a uniform mixture.
Place mixture on a piece of parchment paper. Add another piece on top and spread out “dough” and form in whatever shape you like. You can use a rolling pin, empty glass, or even just your forearm. It’s best to get it about 1/4″ for a good even cook.
Before placing into oven, use a fork and poke holes all around. This will prevent the cheese from bubbling while cooking. If it does bubble while in the oven, just simply poke the bubbles and resume cooking. Cook at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes, or until nice and golden brown.
Remove from oven and top with your parmesan cheese and cheddar cheese. Evenly distribute all over. Place back into the oven and cook another 5-10 minutes until your cheese is nicely melted and your bread sticks are really nice and golden brown. Cut into equal pieces and enjoy! Don’t be afraid to get creative. Add anything you like to your bread sticks!!
