Following a KETO diet doesnt have to be hard, complicated or time consuming! Try these 5 five-minute KETO lovin' recipes that will definitely shave off time and keep your tastebuds going MM good!
#1 TAVO Sandwich
Tuna and avocado are two wonderful sources of healthy fatty acids (omega three among them!). Mix up a lovely can of tuna with some ripe avocado, add a dollop of mayonnaise and layer it between two crunchy iceberg lettuce leaves. It’s as easy to eat as a sandwich without the hassle of high carb bread. Or, as an alternative, roll up smaller lettuce leaves and serve it as a lovely finger food or snack at the next dinner party or as an alternative to popcorn on movie night!
We love to season our sandwich with a variety of Do You Bake? spices (especially for the LOVE of garlic) that can be found in our seasoning collection HERE
#2 - PB and C
Peanut Butter and Jam might be your go to comfort food, but scratch the J and replace it with some fluffy cream (sugar free) and a sprinkle of your favorite sugar free KETO approved sweet spice blend from your pantry.
Melt the peanut butter in the microwave, and slowly add the whipped cream until it forms a creamy, light consistency. It will feel like cake batter as you tuck into this gorgeous treat. Try to avoid artificially sweetened peanut butter, though. PB is a healthy source of protein and the right kind of fat, but it goes out the window if a ton of sugar has been added to it in the manufacturing process, so be mindful of that.
PB and C is an ultimate topper to a cup of full fat greek yogurt or even a delicious smoothie. Or delish on its own as a perfectly created fat bomb of a snack!
#3 - Spinach and Shrimp
Chop some onions and garlic, fry it golden brown in a pan. Then, add some shrimp until cooked to perfection. Then, stir in some fresh spinach leaves. For flavour add our kick in your THAI seasoning blend! and let the spinach get just slightly mushy (to taste). You’ve got yourself a keto meal that will delight everyone and is beyond healthy. For a vegan option, replace the shrimp with tofu.
#4 - Oven Baked Salmon
Love the taste of salmon, but hate the smell of fried fish in your kitchen? The perfect solution comes with the help of one of the most useful household items: aluminum foil. Get a nice cut of salmon, which is filled to the brim with the healthiest kind of fatty acids found in nature, season it to taste with curry powder, bay leaves, sea salt and coriander leaves. Wrap it up in some foil, put it on a baking tray and bake it for about 20 minutes (depending on the size of the cut and if it was frozen). You can add some green beans or asparagus right into the foil, that way the fish will absorb the subtle flavours of these veggies and give you a tasting experience that is complete and very rounded.
#5 - Cabbage and Bacon
Any Irish person (or any grandmother) will tell you, there is nothing quite like cabbage and bacon as a comfort food. And surprisingly, this staple of western society is completely in line with a keto diet. And it could not be simpler to make. Get the best streaky bacon you can find and fry it up until it’s nice and crisp. Then, simply cut up some white cabbage and sear it in a pan. Gradually add some beef stock to give it flavor. Serve with some butter or ghee dollopped on top.
