Keto Turkey Gravy

Among the best parts of slow roasting meat are the delicious drippings. Rich, savory and flavorful liquid gold… To discard it, we’d suggest, borders on criminal.

While there’s nothing wrong with enjoying drippings on their own, most of us grew up enjoying the creamy texture of gravy on meats and vegetables. For some, it’s an indispensable element in a real holiday meal. And there’s no reason to deprive yourself if gravy is your thing. Even if you’re living keto, this recipe keeps your commitment. Most of all, it feels and tastes like indulgence itself.

Scalloped Potatoes

For many people, potatoes are synonymous with Thanksgiving dinner. And while the carb count of potatoes suggests moderation is best, at the holidays many Primal types choose to fit tradition into their eating plan.

Mashed potatoes might be the go-to, but another flavorful option is scalloped potatoes. It’s the perfect complement for beef and ham, of course, but with the taste of traditional herbs like sage and thyme, you might have a new favorite dish for your holiday turkey meals as well.

This recipe uses coconut cream and ghee, but you can substitute regular whipping cream and butter if you tolerate dairy.

Julienned Carrot and Kale Salad

For many Primal types, the meat is the easy part of a meal. Roasted or grilled, the taste and richness are givens. After all, few of us tire of a good steak over time. The vegetables…are often another matter. Short of resorting to the overcooked sides we grew up with or anemic examples of restaurant offerings, we know we could do better. We should be eating more vegetables, with more variety, but how? Salads are perhaps the top option, but we’re not always in the mood for a cold bowl for dinner. Side salads can be the answer. We’re not talking ordinary iceberg though…

Strawberry Spinach and Basil Salad

We couldn’t think of a better salad to close out the summer season with than this.

Simple, fresh, and sweet, it’s a perfect accompaniment to an omelet breakfast or a grilled chicken dinner, but it’s also a satisfying light meal in its own right. With just 6 ingredients (including the dressing) and 10 minutes of prep time, you have a delicious salad (and nutrient powerhouse) on the table.

Keto Cole Slaw

Whether you’re planning a summer barbecue or an informal dinner, you can never go wrong with cole slaw. Creamy, tangy and crunchy, it’s always a crowd pleaser. But most cole slaw recipes use ingredients that contain sugar or other added sweeteners as well as mayo made with industrial seed oils. Not this recipe. Here you’ll find a healthier version all around and one that even fits the needs of a keto dieter—with all the fresh taste you’ve come to expect.

The goodness of Primal Kitchen® Mayo (made from healthy avocado oil) and Primal Kitchen Organic Spicy Brown Mustard mix with the bright colors and nutrients of cabbage, carrots and green onion—with a few extras to create a zesty and creamy side you’ll want to serve every week. (Personally, we think they go exceptionally well with these tempting Low-Carb Ribs….)

Bacon & Cheddar Keto Muffins

It’s hard to decide which is more delicious, these savory bacon and cheddar keto muffins, or the original blueberry flavor. Both flavors are made from the same basic recipe with a simple gluten-free ingredient list that includes almond flour, butter, heavy cream and an egg.

The lightly sweetened blueberry version is a delicious morning treat, but this combination of bacon and sharp cheddar is equally hard to resist. Who doesn’t love bacon? These rich and flavorful muffins are perfect for busy mornings (keep a batch in the fridge or freeze, and warm one in the microwave) or for leisurely weekend brunches.
