    I like making chicken caprese stuffed portobello mushrooms...burritos/quesadillas with low carb tortillas, salmon avocado sushi with cauliflower rice, lasagna using zucchini slices or even eggplant as the pasta base, Red lentil/bean soup, margarita pizza using cauliflower crust or broccoli crust...

    Protein on a bed of salad. Skip any potato called for in salade nicoise or gado gado recipes.

    Protein or fatty dip for raw veg. Skip the potato for grande alioli. Skip bread in traditional interpretations of bagna cauda but do include scrambling egg in the last of the sauce. Skip optional rice for nam prik ong. There are more Thai dishes that are warm protein dips for raw veg. Google "ong" =curry based and "lon"=coconut milk based for more meals along these lines.

    Cauliflower rice to accompany any asian meal. Blitz raw cauliflower in the food processor until it is a rice like texture. I like it raw, but you can warm it in the microwave.

    Lower carb substitue for grains are legumes such as lentils or navy beans if you want a starchier side with your meal.

    I have used cauliflower in place of mashed potatoes but have yet to make it into rice. I love the idea of it and will give it a try.Thank you for all of your suggestions!

    Dinner roll replacement: Cheese loaves: Can use any cheese, I prefer Trader Joe's feta.

    1 lightly beaten egg in mixing bowl
    Crumble a block of feta and mix with egg.
    Mix in 1/2 stick of melted butter.
    Dash of salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Mix.

    Pour into a lightly-oiled small pyrex glass baking dish, bake 350 for around 20-25 minutes.

    Let cool, cut into squares. (Leftovers make a great snack, cold or reheated).

    Would be great served with lamb or gyro meat!

    I use 8 oz block of feta, or other cheeses. We also make an Italian flavored one with mozzarella, parmesan, seasoned with dried oregano and basil.

    Cut into to 9-12 little squares.

    I had this ground beef and zucchini skillet last night for dinner. Topped it with shredded cheese.

    I also suggest if looking for low carb recipes or tips... join the Low Carber Daily Forum group on MFP.

    A lot of low carbers or ketoers do not like to post about it in general forums, where there is a sense of cyber bullying against anyone who chooses these ways of eating.

    Reading and chatting with others in the low carb groups, you find that a lot of people cut carbs for specific health reasons (myself included). Autoimmune disorders, Diabetics, Crohn's disease, other ulcer disorders, etc. and are also battling with the depression that often accompanies illness. The groups feel like more of a safe and supportive environment!

    Case in point: you got maybe 10-15 suggestions here. In the group, I'm following a thread with 75 pages of recipes and suggestions. And no woos on a single one!!

    Other groups with low carb recipes:
    Keto cooking (not active discussions, but one female who posts a lot of recipes).

    Recipe swap (again not very active, but lots of threads to read through with recipes).

    This sounds amazing. I make a keto "Oopsie Bread" made with cream cheese and eggs thats great for a sandwich. Looking forward to giving this a try! Thank you!!
