Low Carb Broccoli Slaw

When my wife first showed me the package of “Broccoli Slaw” she picked up from the store I wasn’t sure what it would taste like.  After all it’s coleslaw but made with broccoli stems – not cabbage.  We used this recipe for coleslaw dressing and combined the two.  The result was incredibly easy and very tasty!  This is an excellent side dish for Low Carb Breaded Fish.

Cauliflower Salad

Keto dieters are always on a quest for a “substitute” for their favorite foods.  Summer is fast approaching and in this case we wanted something that would fill the role of potato salad at our summer cookouts.  That’s when we came up with this amazing Cauliflower (No Potato) Salad!  It has all the flavor and almost the same mouth feel as real potato salad!  Check it out!

Cauliflower Salad

  • Servings: 8
  • Difficulty: Moderate

  • 1 Medium Sized Head of Cauliflower (600g)
  • 6 Boiled Eggs, Peeled
  • 2/3 Cup Mayonnaise (Don’t use light mayo, it has more carbs!)
  • 3 Tbsp Yellow Mustard
  • 3 Tbsp Pickle Relish
  • 1/8 Cup Raw Chopped White Onion
  • Lite Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • Parley and Egg Slices to Garnish if Desired

Bring a large pot of water to a boil on the stove.  While that’s heating break the cauliflower florets into bite sized pieces.  Once your water is boiled add your cauliflower to the pot and cook until they’re tender.  If you have a food steamer or another method you prefer you can prepare the cauliflower that way.  It just has to be cooked tender.  Assuming you already know how to hard boil an egg and you’ve cooked the six eggs break them open and separate the yolks into a small bowl and mash them up.  (If you don’t here is How to Cook a Hard-boiled Egg.)  Take the egg whites and break or slice them down into small bite sized pieces.  After that it’s as easy as mixing all the ingredients together in a large bowl!

This salad tastes best when it is allowed to chill overnight in the refrigerator.  Enjoy!

Bunless Keto Burgers

Life has been hectic around here the last few weeks with soccer, work and summer yard work starting up.  Having little to no time to plan or cook a meal we’ve had to resort to shaking up old pre-keto favorites and making them low carb!

Summer time around this house means cooking on the grill! We have a Char-Griller 5050 Duo Gas-and-Charcoal Grill and it gets a workout every summer! We fired it up for the first time the other day to make Bunless Keto Burgers.  This isn’t exactly rocket science.  It’s just a burger without a bun!

Bunless Keto Burgers

  • 1 lb 70/30 Ground Beef Divided Into Four 4 Oz Patties
  • Morton Lite Salt and Pepper To Taste
  • Your Favorite Keto Friendly Toppings!  (Picture is 1 Oz Swiss Cheese, 2 Strips of Crisp Bacon, A Few White Onion Slices, Yellow Mustard and Mayonnaise)

Fire that grill up to medium heat and start cooking!  I generally keep the burgers on one side for 4-6 minutes depending on how thick the patty is.  Once the burgers are charred to your taste and heated on the inside to a minimum of 160 degrees (Food poisoning is bad, mmkay?  Check it with a thermometer!) you’re ready to dress your burger how you like!  No bun?  No problem!  All the flavor of our favorite fast summer time meal with none of the carbs.  Enjoy!

Here is another quick lunch idea that takes 5 minutes to prepare!  I love tuna salad and it’s a great keto meal that has plenty of protein and fat.  Here is what you’ll need.

  • 2.6 Oz Container Tuna
  • 2 Tbsp Mayonaise (Full fat!)
  • Pickles (I used spears here cut in chunks.  Normally I use Vlassic Dill Relish)
  • Mortons Lite Salt to Taste
  • Onion Power to Taste (About Half a Tsp)
  • Pepper to Taste
  • Heinz Malt Vinegar (Optional.  I put a few dashes in because I love vinegar!)

Measure out 2 Tbsp of mayonnaise and place in bowl.  Add your vinegar, salt, pepper, onion powder, pickles and tuna.  Mix well.  Depending on how much vinegar and juice from the pickles it can be a bit runny.  Enjoy!
