Test Lab – Easy Dinner

Middle Eastern Chicken Shawarma (marinade)

I grew up eating Shawarma; In the Netherlands, where I was born and raised, there are lots of “fast food” restaurants that sell it and serve it with pita bread and mayo based garlic sauce. I have also tried to recreate it many times since it’s such an easy flavorful meal to make that is…

Crab Cakes

I was making Keto Fish Sticks the other day (that reminds me.. I have ro check if those are already on the site; they are amazing!), and while I was looking for Pork Rinds in my pantry for breading I came across 2 cans of lump crab meat that I forgot I had. I figured…

Fish Tacos

It’s one of those ultimate street foods right? I promise you won’t feel deprived when you try these instead of the real deal! You can even dress it up with your favorite creamy low carb sauce or street dressing, go crazy 😉 Ingredients (2 servings) 2 low carb tortillas (When picking low carb tortillas go…

Tuna Boats

Is it just me or do we never sit down for lunch anymore? When I grew up we had lunch break at home instead of at school and my mom always had the table set with bread, cheese, jelly, lunchmeat etc. I loved sitting down with her and relax, chat and eat for that little…

Jamie Oliver’s Tomato Salad

One of my favorite chefs! His book “Jamie at home” came out in 2007 and I bought it right away… It has been used ever since and is filled with donkey ears, sticky notes and sticky pages. I love the fact most of his dishes are inspired by Italy and use fresh, seasonal ingredients. This…

Frittata with Kale, Mushroom and Ghee

I am convinced that Ghee makes everything better… seriously, it’s my new bacon. For those of you who don’t know what Ghee is: It’s clarified butter. But what does that mean? Ghee is butter but the water and milk solids have been removed. Therefor it has a slightly higher fat content gram for gram than…

Crispy Boneless Chicken Thighs

While on keto, lots op people stay away from too much chicken since it’s low in fat and high in protein. However, chicken thighs are a more fatty part of the chicken and when you leave the skin on and sear them in tallow, ghee or oil, you get enough fat in your dish to…

Chinese Stir Fry with Shrimp

Easy, keto and delicious! This stir fry is one of those dinners that are done in 30 minutes with minimal prep and turn out perfectly every time 🙂 Ingredients: Sauce: Stir Fry: Instructions What I’ve learned… Stats: The stats vary greatly in this dish depending on what vegetables you are using and in what amount.…

Chicken Chowder

I love soup, although I have not been a fan of the creamy kind though. I lived in New England for a while (Middletown, RI) and of course there were many occasions that the infamous Clam Chowder was served. Also, not a fan (sorry!!!). Anyway, today I am posting a recipe that has everything in…

Turkey Pesto Meatballs

This is a recipe, albeit tweaked, that I got got from one of my favorite non keto cookbooks; “Weelicious” by Catherine McCord. (The recipe has been tweaked to adhere by our low carb standards though!) I bought it as soon as it came out in 2012 (when my youngest, Charlie, was born) and have been…
