1. Keto Lasagna
"You won't miss the noodles in this keto-friendly casserole," says Bren. "I use a good quality marinara that has lots of seasonings for a great weeknight dinner."
"This creamy, decadent, and low-carb chicken Marsala is so easy to make in your Instant Pot!" says Fioa. "This keto dish is perfect for a quick and easy weeknight dinner."
"This za'atar-marinated chicken gets an extra dose of za'atar seasoning right before being roasted in the oven for a tender and juicy meal," says France C. "Za'atar is a Middle Eastern spice blend found in most spice shops or you can make your own using one of the many recipes found online. Serve the za'atar chicken with couscous, roasted potatoes, or atop a salad."
"This beats store-bought Alfredo sauce and is so easy to make," says thedailygourmet. "As a bonus, it's keto and low-carb friendly! I use a Microplane® grater to shred my Parmesan cheese. If you use store-bought grated Parmesan cheese, it won't be as smooth."
"This is a chicken breast covered in cheese, pepperoni, and sauce," says Camilla Padron. "Very keto friendly and each piece is about 4 carbs depending on the sauce you use. Some people add a little bit of Parmesan cheese to the top as well to give a little extra flavor."
"Pork gyro meat is made simple with the help of your Instant Pot® or other multi-functional pressure cooker," says Soup Loving Nicole. "Serve topped with hummus, sliced red onion, tomato, tzatziki sauce, and feta cheese."
"This beef tagliata cooks in the oven and is perfect for those following a low-carb diet!" says thedailygourmet.
"Boneless, skinless chicken thighs are simply coated in za'atar and olive oil, then baked to perfection. The chicken gets a simple treatment because the za'atar spice mix imparts loads of flavor! Even better, it takes just a couple of minutes to prepare. I like these baked chicken thighs alongside a Middle Eastern inspired side dish, or try them in a wrap or green salad with a tahini dressing."
"Put a healthier family classic on the dinner table by substituting ground turkey for ground beef, and using frozen riced cauliflower instead of high-carb white rice," says lutzflcat.
