Keto Salmon Pie

Ingredients

Pie crust

  • 1 tbsp ground psyllium husk powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tbsp water

 Filling

  • 8 oz. smoked salmon
  • mayonnaise
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped
  • Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).

Place the pie dough ingredients into a food processor fitted with a plastic pastry blade. Pulse until mixture forms a ball. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a fork to mix the dough.

Fit a piece of parchment paper into a 10-inch (23-cm) springform pan. (This makes it a cinch to remove once it’s cooked.)

Oil your fingers or a spatula, and gently press the dough into the springform pan. Pre-bake the crust for 10–15 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Mix all the ingredients for the filling, except the salmon, and pour that in the pie crust. Add the salmon and bake for 35 minutes or until the pie is golden brown.

Let cool for a few minutes and serve with a salad or other vegetables.

Keto Pork Skewers with Mash and Salsa Verde

Ingredients

Pork skewers

  • 1 lb pork shoulder, in slices
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp butter or olive oil

Cauliflower mash

  • 25 oz. cauliflower
  • 2 oz. grated parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper

Salsa Verde

  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • Instructions

    Place the ingredients for the sauce in a beaker and mix for 1-2 minutes with an immersion blender.

    Cut the pork shoulder slices in inch-thick pieces lengthwise. Sprinkle the ranch seasoning on the meat. Season with extra salt if your seasoning is low-sodium. Place on wooden skewers cut to fit your frying pan.

    Heat up oil or butter in the pan and fry the skewers for a few minutes on all sides until fully cooked.

    Divide the cauliflower into florets. You can also include the stem, cut into smaller pieces.

    Boil the cauliflower in lightly salted water for a few minutes or until soft, but still retaining shape.

    Drain the water. If you want a firmer mash, place the cauliflower in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out the remaining water.

    Place the cauliflower in a mixer or food processor and mix it with butter and parmesan cheese.

    Season with salt and pepper and add more butter or olive oil if you like.

    Keto Pizza

    Ingredients

    Crust

    • 4 eggs
    • 6 oz. shredded cheese, preferably mozzarella or provolone

    Topping

    • 3 tbsp tomato paste
    • 1 tsp dried oregano
    • 5 oz. shredded cheese
    • 1½ oz. pepperoni
    • olives (optional)

    For serving

    • 2 oz. leafy greens
    • sea salt and ground black pepper

    Instructions

    Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

    Start by making the crust. Crack eggs into a medium-sized bowl and add shredded cheese. Give it a good stir to combine.

    Use a spatula to spread the cheese and egg batter on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You can form two round circles or just make one large rectangular pizza. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes until the pizza crust turns golden. Remove and let cool for a minute or two.

    Increase the oven temperature to 450°F (225°C).

    Spread tomato paste on the crust and sprinkle oregano on top. Top with cheese and place the pepperoni and olives on top.

    Bake for another 5-10 minutes or until the pizza has turned a golden brown color.

    Serve with a fresh salad on the side.

    Keto Meat Pie

    Ingredients

    • ½ yellow onion, finely chopped
    • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
    • 2 tbsp butter or olive oil
    • 20 oz. ground beef or ground lamb
    • salt and pepper
    • 1 tbsp dried oregano or dried basil
    • 4 tbsp tomato paste or ajvar relish
    • ½ cup water

    Pie crust

    • ¾ cup almond flour
    • 4 tbsp sesame seeds
    • 4 tbsp coconut flour
    • 1 tbsp ground psyllium husk powder
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 3 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
    • 1 egg
    • 4 tbsp water

    Topping

    • 8 oz. cottage cheese
    • 7 oz. shredded cheese

    Instructions

    Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).

    Fry onion and garlic in butter or olive oil over medium heat for a few minutes, until the onion is soft. Add the ground beef and keep frying. Add oregano or basil and add salt and pepper to taste.

    Add tomato paste, pesto or ajvar relish – use what you have on hand. Add water. Lower the heat and let simmer for at least 20 minutes. While the meat simmers, make the dough for the crust.

    Mix all the dough ingredients in a food processor for a few minutes until the dough turns into a ball. If you don’t have a food processor, you can mix by hand with a fork.

    Place a round piece of parchment paper in a well-greased springform pan — 9-10 inches in diameter — to make it easier to remove the pie when it’s done. (You can also use a deep-dish pie pan.) Spread the dough in the pan and up along the sides. Use a spatula or well-greased fingers.

    Pre-bake the crust for 10-15 minutes. Take it out of the oven and place the meat in the crust. Mix cottage cheese and shredded cheese together, and layer on top of the pie.

    Bake for 30-40 minutes on a lower rack or until the pie has turned a golden color.
