I haven’t blogged in months, people, because lookie! I got licensed and insured and am officially in business to get a 2 net carb pizza crust…or flatbread…or wrap…into the market. It’s currently only available to people in Kansas City, as I am just now officially underway, but the goal is to get it picked up nationally and into stores…there are many steps to get there, but for now, I am so excited to get this Keto pizza crust out there. For updates, please like the Fattyhead Facebook Page. Cheers!
Rice and bread and pasta! Those new to Keto long for substitutes for their favorite starch. Hemp hearts make a fantastic rice substitute! Versatile enough to add bulk to many dishes. The keto recipe below is a cooked rice-substitute dish, but cooking hemp hearts is not required. They can be added raw to any dish, sprinkled on salad even. Get creative.
Hemp Heart Rice Substitute Recipe
Sauté 1/2 small onion in 1T Kerrygold butter. Add 6T hemp hearts, 1/2 cup chicken stock, 4 oz cut chicken breast and cover for about 5 minutes. Then add 1 cup chopped spinach. I also threw in a few pine nuts. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Makes 2 servings.
I’ve recently discovered Havarti cheese so naturally, a Keto cheesesteak made sense. Havarti melts really well. I used it both as a topper for the veggies and to thicken the sauce a tad.
Keto Cheesesteak with Havarti Recipe
1. Sauté 3 stalks celery and 3 green onion stalks in 1/2 cup bone broth and 1 T butter. Season with tarragon, salt, pepper.
2. When celery is slightly soft, add 4 cherry tomatoes and handful of fresh spinach. Add one slice Havarti cheese and stir till melted.
3. Arrange drained veggies on plate and sauté 4 ounces flank steak in remaining juice.
4. Top veggies with another slice Havarti cheese and top with steak.
Bell peppers would be a delicious addition, but I had to go with what I had in the fridge. Keto eating is all about invention, creativity, and experimentation. This is a hearty, savory, filling meal. Bone broth has a host of benefits including improving gut health. You can buy it in cartons or make homemade bone broth.
If you’re new to Keto, have a look around. I keep things super simple, from recipes to Keto concepts. You’ll see a few links to products I like. If you click and buy, I earn a teensy weensy commission but you won’t pay one penny more. Thank you ever so kindly!
