Broccoli and cauliflower are great vegetables to eat as a side dish while on a ketogenic diet. We are always on the prowl looking for some new way to spice them up. You can only eat steamed so many times before you get bored! This dish is relatively easy to make and has a wonderful hint of dijon that blends so well with the parmesan cheese.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Start off by steaming the broccoli and cauliflower for 6 to 8 minutes. They should remain crisp but tender. Drain the vegetables and season with Morton Salt Lite Salt and pepper. Grease a 9″x13″ baking dish and place all the steamed florets into it. In a separate bowl mix the mayonnaise, cheddar cheese, 3 oz parmesan cheese, green onions, dijon mustard and cayenne pepper. Spoon this mixture over the broccoli and cauliflower in the baking pan and spread it out as evenly as possible. Finally sprinkle the 1 oz portion of parmesan cheese over the top. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the topping has turned a golden brown.

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!
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!

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!
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!
