Taco Tuesday is no joke in my house. For years I have been perfecting my taco-making craft. When we started a ketogenic diet we just eliminated the carb loaded chips and tortillas. I have felt like I was missing something. Something crunchy and textured. So, after much research and Pinterest-ing I have decided to go with taco bowls. It's easy and if you're new to a keto or low carb way of eating you'll find this to be satisfying as well.
I typically make my famous grilled nuggets because they are healthier but since starting keto I have made some adjustments to ingredients and now we enjoy some of our favorite foods again. Here is my families new favorite dinner and it's just as food baked or fried.
Sweet Basil Chicken & Quinoa
A quick and flavorful dish that's healthy and light.
Simple Recipe for Spaghetti Sauce
3 Cups of small ripe tomatoes (or large cherry tomatoes)
2 tbs of minced garlic
1 tsp of fresh ground black paper
1 tsp of salt
1 tbs of Oregano
1 tbs of Basil
1tbs of Parsley
1 tbs of flour
Blend together in a food processor or blender and simmer for 30 minutes on low to marinate ingredients together. Add salt and pepper as needed. This is a simple and fresh sauce...veggies can be diced and added, my favorite veggie is zucchini and maybe some carrots. Thanks to my neighbors for bringing me the most delicious tomatoes ever!
Home grown, right off the vine! YUMMM! This sauce was basically FREE! I didn't have to go to the farmers market for these babies!
Now, you can use canned tomatoes if needed. You can also add peppers and onions but my kids don't like those flavors like I do, so I keep this one simple!
Enjoy! I know we did!
I love to cook but only if the meals are healthy, easy, and yummy. .
