1/2 tbsp Keto friendly sugar (such as Monk Fruit or Swerve) *optional* -makes very sweet

Notes

I keep these recipes small so that you don’t have a whole batch of these sitting around the house tempting you. You can even half this recipe if you want. You can fulfill your dessert or chocolate need and then move about you day. Saves you from binging and feeling bad afterwards. So rich, you will feel done after one. Low glycemic means no cravings and no sugar spikes. Yay!

Almond Chocolate Nut Clusters Recipe – Keto, low glycemic

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Lily’s dark chocolate chips (keto friendly)
  • 3 almonds, salted

Notes

I keep these dessert recipes small, often cutting out a lot of extra ingredients so that you only make it when you really want to dessert, you don’t have a whole batch of these laying around the house that’s constantly tempting you. So when you just absolutely have to have chocolate you can have it in a keto friendly way and you can make it in about less than 5 minutes. Another good example would be my chocolate chip cookie dough keto friendly recipe that you can make again and probably less than 10 minutes and enjoy. I make them in small batches so that I don’t overeat and you can keep moderation and count the calories small while still enjoying dessert, you don’t have to binge and feel bad or guilty about it afterwards, it can be incorporated in your daily calories.

Directions

Put 1/4 of a cup of Lily’s dark chocolate chips into a microwavable bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir and microwave for another 30 seconds. They should be pretty well melted if some of the chocolate chips aren’t that’s okay you’re going to refreeze freeze them anyway so that you can eat the chocolate treats. Poor or scoop the melted chocolate over three almonds that are laying on wax paper. Put the wax paper with your chocolate almonds cluster into the freezer for about 15 minutes. Take out and enjoy!

Tastes like the real thing, so glad I found this and my chocolate chip cookie dough recipe.

“Greek” Pork Loin Recipe

Photo Source: Andrea Knight mediumandreaknight.com

Pork is often referred to as the “other white meat”. Pork can serve as a good source of protein and is often a cheaper alternative to chicken breasts. This is a recipe I invented just based off of an idea. I thought I would pass it along to those interested in gluten free, keto friendly recipes.

  • 1 pork loin
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic
  • Pinch Onion powder
  • Dash Oregano
  • Dash Dill
  • Dash Nutmeg
  • Sprinkle Parsley
  • Squirt of Lemon
  • Dash of Salt and pepper

Cook on medium heat. Season your fry pan with olive oil and spices (not lemon). Place your pork loin in the pan on top of the spices and fry for about 8 minutes or until browned on the underside. Flip and cook for another 5 minutes until browned on the second side. I usually adjust the seasons before placing the pork loin back down when flipping so both sides are nicely seasoned. Sprinkle on some lemon, maybe 3-4 drops. Serve with your favorite side dishes.

Baba Ghanoush Recipe

Ganoush, Ghanouj, or Ghanoush, however you spell it this recipe is delicious with your favorite veggies and meats.

  • 1 eggplant
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/8 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt, unflavored, no sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil to cover eggplant

Cut your eggplant into quarters or eighths (cut in the middle width-wise and length-wise and then length-wise again). Spray or cover eggplant on a baking tray with olive oil. Cook at 400 degrees F for 45 minutes.

Run cold water over the eggplant skin and peel off the skin. Take the flesh of the eggplant and put into a food processor. Combine with all other ingredients other than olive oil and blend in processor until creamy.

Top with olive oil and slowly mix in. Put in bowl and sprinkle with parsley for decoration or smokey paprika. Serve with vegetables and/or flatbread. My whole wheat flatbread recipe is here. It is also good salads and on fresh sliced red onion. Cut baby carrots lengthwise for easier scooping.

“Ratatouille” with Ricotta Recipe

Photo source: Andrea Knight, http://www.mediumandreaknight.com

I started off with a basic ratatouille recipe and it evolved over the weeks so that became tastier and easier to make. This recipe includes ricotta cheese, you can add other cheeses as well such as parmesan and feta.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1/2 eggplant, cut into slices and quartered
  • 1 cup shaved Parmesan cheese
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 5 slices red onion
  • 1 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
  • 1/2 cup whole milk ricotta
  • Sprinkle of thyme

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat bottom of 8×8 casserole dish with marinara sauce (pick a pasta or marinara sauce you like, mushrooms, basil, or sausage and cheese for example). Slice vegetables and place them on the tomato base either is rows or on top of each other. I usually do eggplant first, then ricotta, then mushroom and zucchini slices. Top with onion, parmesan, thyme, salt, and pepper. Drizzle olive oil on top. Cover with foil. Bake for 45 minutes. It should come out bubbling and hot.

Some other vegetables that are good in this is sliced sweet potato (so good) and carrots. I’ve tried other squashes and they didn’t quite work but I recommend trying some of your other favorite veggies in this. Great way to pre-prep veggies, cut up in quarters or 9ths and put in foil for future meals.

Cook your shrimp, shell them and cut them into quarters (4 pieces). Chop your celery and add all ingredients together. Mix well and microwave for 30 seconds if you prefer it warm or serve chilled.

Delicious and really easy to make, this is a quick spin on my Grandma’s recipe, salmon loaf. Takes about 15 minutes to assemble and sautee without optional sauce.

Ingredients

  • 1 can salmon or tuna 12 oz or 2 5oz
  • 1 tsp grey poupon or whole ground mustard
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tbsp panko crumbs (can be removed to make it gluten free or use almond flour)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Dash of salt and pepper to taste

Optional sauce (Grandma Ladwig’s recipe)

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbsps flour
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp ketchup
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 paprika
  • 1 egg

Combine all ingredients and form into patties. Heat a sautee pan with olive oil until the oil pops in the pan, about medium heat (2 to low on gas stoves power burner). Fry in sautee pan on both sides until browned. Should not take long, maybe a minute or two on both sides. Top with lemon butter, or the sauce below, and have paired with a light salad.

Optional sauce instructions

Melt butter in a saucepan at medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons flour and stir constantly to mix well for 1 to 2 minutes. Gradually add 1 cup of milk and stir constantly to make smooth and thick. Turn heat to low. Add mustard, ketchup, salt and paprika. Stir until blended and smooth. At last minute, turn off heat and add one egg. Stir and blend thoroughly. Do not reheat. Serve over salmon cakes or on the side.

Roasted Beet & Goat Cheese Spinach Salad

The delicious combo of the sweet blueberries, creamy goat cheese and the roasted beet is a lively twist on the usual dinner salad. Add walnuts or chicken for more protein or keep it light by skipping the dressing!

Ingredients

+ 1 Yellow Beet

+ 1/2 slice of red onion

+ 2 cups spinach

+ 1/2 cup blueberries

+ 2 tbsp of homemade caesar salad dressing

+ 1/2 avocado diced

Method

Slice or cut your beets into quarters, brush with olive oil, salt and pepper on each side, and bake in oven at 380 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes if in slices, or 40 minutes if in large quarters. My recommendation is to cut in 1/4 inch slices, roast for 20 minutes at 380 degrees and you’ll end up with crispy edges with a taste almost like a potato chip.  Prepare red onion, avocado, blueberries and toss with spinach. Once the beets are ready toss them in the salad, salt and pepper to taste and dress with desired dressing. My homemade caesar dressing can be found here. Easy and delicious! beet salad beet salad
