Almost everyone on a keto plan will agree that preparing everyday meals can be exhausting. Also, the most difficult part is saying goodbye to the unhealthy but rather delightful carbs! However, your keto recipes don’t have to be bland and limited. To revive your taste buds, here are 3 healthy but appetizing keto recipes that you should try.
Broccoli cheese soup
A perfect last-minute pick for demanding weeknights, broccoli cheese soup merely takes 20 to 25 minutes to prepare. To whip up this recipe, you will just require five ingredients, i.e., broccoli, chicken broth (you can also use bone or vegetable broth), heavy cream, garlic, and cheddar cheese. All you need to do is saute minced garlic on medium heat for a minute or so. Then, add the broth, cream, and chopped broccoli and let it boil until the broccoli turns soft. While stirring the mixture, keep adding shredded cheese on a low heat. Once the cheese melts and the soup reaches a thick consistency, turn off the heat and serve it in a bowl with some cheddar cheese shavings on top.
Chicken Alfredo with zucchini noodles
One of the things that makes keto extremely frustrating is giving up the beloved, comforting pasta. The good thing is that pasta can be replaced with something healthier. In this recipe, zucchini comes to the rescue. For throwing this recipe together, cut 3 to 4 small zucchinis in long strands with a vegetable peeler. Put the zucchini strands in the colander and place the colander over a bowl. Season zucchini with salt and let it rest for at least half an hour.
Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a pan and season the diced chicken with salt and pepper (you can customize the seasoning by adding some herbs and spices). Then, add the diced chicken pieces to the pan and cook them for at least 10 to 12 minutes. Lower the heat, add butter to the pan, and let it simmer until brown. Then, pour heavy cream and whisk it continuously until it comes to a boil. Then, add garlic and parmesan and cook it until the cheese melts. Finally, add the zucchini strands, chicken, and some parsley and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes.
If you are a “pancake for breakfast” kind of a person, this recipe is a must-try to salvage your early morning cravings. A mere 20-minute recipe, to make keto pancakes, you need blanched almond flour, coconut flour, your choice of natural sweetener, unsweetened almond milk, vanilla extract, avocado oil, and sea salt. Mix all these ingredients in a bowl until the batter turns smooth. Then, in a preheated oiled pan, add the batter and flatten it into small circles. Cook both the sides on medium heat for 2 minutes each or until they turn golden brown. Then, serve it with maple syrup or coconut sugar on top.
