Toad in the Hole (Low carb)

Funnyman loves my keto yorkshire puddings and I love pork sausages, so creating a low carb ‘Toad in the Hole’ seemed inevitable. Traditionally, Toad in the Hole is served with some form of gravy, but we enjoyed this as a summer meal, so I scattered over my favourite (super-easy) homemade relish which cuts through the richness perfectly. Made from tomatoes and garlic, the fresh Tomato and Garlic relish adds the perfect amount of sweetness, flavour and juice to every mouthful. I hope you love it as much as we do!

Keto Chicken and Chilli Soup

Chicken Chili Soup
Chicken Chili Soup

I originally started the development of this chicken and chilli soup to be a chicken version of chili con carne to serve over Cauliflower Rice, Cauliflower Mash or even Konjac ‘rice’. But while cooking it, I simply stopped the dish right there and thought, wow – this is a fantastic soup. This lovely dish yields three servings, but if you choose to cook it for more people, simply use the plug-in on the recipe below and increase the yield amount (which will automatically display new ingredient amounts for you).Its important to mention that you should use skinless, de-boned chicken thighs for this recipe. Do not be tempted to use chicken breasts. Thighs are far more succulent and will hold up well with the amount of cooking without drying out and leaving you miserable. If you aren’t a fan of soup, scroll down to see how else you can change up the recipe to use as a chunky chicken sauce as I originally intended. Also, if you are cooking for the kids, adjust the amount of chili and cayenne pepper to your liking…

Coconut Milk Poached Salmon (Keto)

Keto Salmon Coconut Milk
Keto Salmon Coconut Milk

I just love konjac / shirataki noodles and clean out the shelves at Holland & Barret when they have a penny sale! (I have tried many brands, but here in the UK, Eat Water has got them spot on.) In this recipe, I poached salmon in coconut milk which was infused with lemongrass, chili and ginger, then served it over warm ‘fettuccine‘ and added toasted desiccated coconut for additional texture and flavour. Its a lovely, light dish which happens to be very filling – all this at only 7.7g carbs per serving: perfect!

Cod in Dill Cream Sauce (Keto)

Keto Cod in Dill Cream

This dish was inspired by a staff meal I enjoyed while working at the Duck several years ago. (Imagine having the chefs of a 3-Michelin star restaurant cooking your lunch every day?) It is one of my favourite dishes to make using cod and I can’t stress enough how delicious it is. You simply have to try it for yourself. Each cod portion is approx 120g / 4.2oz and is poached in an enormous amount of cream. The stars of the show are the jammy onions hidden under the cod and the generous amount of freshly chopped dill scattered over after baking. Double up the recipe to make this for your family, and enjoy alongside some high-fibre vegetables.

See my Side Dishes for some ideas, but I will lean heavily towards advising it over my Keto Cauliflower Mash to mop up all that glorious sauce. Step-by-step pics to help you along…

Low-carb Cabbage and Mince Rolls

Keto Cabbage Mince Rolls

Get a little creative with ground beef and savoy cabbage and spend some time making these attractive little parcels. I used the full yield of the Roasted Tomato Sauce recipe for this dish, so be sure to have that prepped and ready before beginning. (You could, alternatively use 500g / 18oz of passata, but I want to encourage you to make your own sauces so you know exactly what has gone into them.) One serving = 2 parcels (as pictured) so this recipe will happily feed a family of 4.

Pork Shank with Mustard Keto Gravy (Keto)

Pork Shank with Keto Mustard Gravy
Pork Shank with Keto Mustard Gravy

This recipe uses a beautiful, fresh (not cured) shank which you can get from your local butcher. (Be sure to ask him to score the fat for you.) I slow-cooked it in a casserole (covered with a well-fitting lid) in the oven, along with onions, garlic and stock. Afterwards, I made a gravy from the cooked down onions and juices, and cranked the heat up in the oven to puff that skin up for that all-glorious crackling. A 1kg /2.2lb / 35oz shank will sufficiently feed 4 people and should be enjoyed with my Keto Creamy Cauliflower Mash, so that the accompanying mustard gravy – which really makes the dish sing – can be mopped up. Be sure to check out the Side Dishes option on the site and choose your favourite one to enjoy alongside it. The 11g carbs per serving includes only the pork and gravy on this recipe, so while this may seem quite hefty to you, why not save this Sunday roast to break your fast if you are intermittent fasting.

Quick and Easy Low-carb Phở Bo

Low carb Pho Bo
Low carb Pho Bo

Backpacking around Vietnam with Funnyman in 2010 was one of our best holidays ever! I recall having pho bo (pronounced “fuh” – not “foo” or “foh”) for the first time in Hanoi – and I was blown away! I happily slurped it down numerous times as we travelled from north-to-south over those 3 weeks! Now, many years later and hardcore into my low-carb lifestyle, I wanted to relive those awesome memories. I created a quick 15-minute low carb pho bo using the (konjac / shirataki) ‘noodles‘ from the UK company Eat Water’s range to make it low-carb friendly. I LOVE THIS.

Smoked Paprika Chicken & Chorizo Bake (Low-carb)

Keto Chicken and Chorizo Bake

This is why you must try my Cauliflower Rice recipe! I added the cooked cauli-rice to the chicken roasting dish halfway through and it absorbs all that glorious smoked paprika flavour. This is chicken & chorizo bake is a great family dinner that can be enjoyed with a fresh side salad. This chicken and chorizo bake uses the Fats of Life Cauliflower Rice recipe, which you will notice only serves 4. You should therefore make 1 and 1/2 times that cauli-rice recipe to yield enough for 6 people (and this is also how the macros were calculated.)

Sausage and Cauliflower Bake (Low carb)

This recipe doesn’t require a long-winded head note because it is so fabulous! It’s SO simple, SO tasty and I bet your kids will love it! This recipe yields 4 servings and would go well with a lovely, fresh green salad on the side. You could double the recipe to serve 8 (using the handy plug-in below) – and use a larger casserole, but please be sure to use Gruyere cheese, as I am not sure Cheddar or any other cheese would pack the same punch. It’s one of my favourites. (I used 97% Pork Sausages (Tesco Finest brand) for this recipe: With those, there is no added wheat/gluten. However, there is a small amount of potato starch present, but honestly I am fine with that for occasional consumption. It’s only 1.5g carbs per TWO fat, beautiful pork sausages!) THIS RECIPE IS ACCOMPANIED WITH A VIDEO. (Scroll down to see it, and be sure to watch the blooper reel Funnyman slips in at the end!)
