Everyone knows that potatoes aren’t allowed on a low-carb or keto diet because they are too starchy. But that doesn’t stop us from missing them! Luckily, we found a way for you to dive into your cravings without getting kicked out of ketosis.
This is one of those dishes that combines two pleasant facts. First, it is easy to prepare and it’s so delicious. It’s also low-carb!
We use radishes in place of potatoes. They are the perfect side dish for many other recipes, such as beef or chicken. This dish can also be used as an appetizer for a family meeting, friends meeting and any other get together.
In this recipe, you can feel free to adapt the seasoning to your favourite flavor but just keep the main ingredients. We keep the spices to a minimum in our recipe, but you can add parsley, oregano, garlic, and anything else you’d like!
Radishes are an overlooked low-carb vegetables. A 100 gram serving contains 16 calories, 0.1 grams of fat, 3.5 grams of net carbs (1.9 grams of net carbs), 1.6 grams of fiber, and 0.7 grams of protein (a). It also contains 25% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C and 10 different minerals.
Radishes also have a high water content. This means they can help keep you hydrated when you eat them, which helps eliminate bloat, improves digestion, and helps make your skin glow.
Because radishes have such a high water content, you’ll want to make sure not to overcook them. Potatoes are a tough vegetables. This means you can leave them to boil in a pot of water without keeping much of a watchful eye on them. Be careful not to overcook your radishes or they will lose some of the nutrition.
Radishes are also great because they look similar to potatoes and they take on the flavor of the spices you cook them with. Serve this dish as is or with your favorite meat.
