A Keto Lemon Lover’s Dream!
When we found out our friend Martina from KetoDietApp was publishing a cookbook we were so excited! It would be nice to have a low carb cookbook in the house from which to get inspired and from KetoDietApp no less!
When our copy of The KetoDiet Cookbook arrived, we dived right into it and were really impressed with the number of recipes, stunning photos and informative tips. Through the breakfasts, lunches, dinner, side dishes and desserts, we made it all the way to the end of the book until we saw her lemon meringue tartlets. That’s what we’d be making first for sure. It would also give Rami a chance to learn how to make a meringue.
Since we only had 2 tartlet pans and they were bigger than the ones Martina used, we decided to halve the recipes and make 2 large tartlets. We ended up sharing one and it was very filling. Plus it’s always fun to share dessert with a loved one (even if you really enjoy dessert).
The lemon meringue tartlets looked formidable but were actually pretty straight forward to prepare. Whenever you have multiple layers to a dessert it seems like a daunting task to undertake, but we powered through. We’re glad we did because these tartlets turned out pretty amazing. We’re not sure whether to save the second one we made for our friends like we usually do… or conveniently forget to tell them about it. I think we both know where that second tartlet’s going to end up.
We modified this recipe just the slightest since we didn’t have arrowroot powder and unknowingly ran out of gelatin in the middle of prep! So we added a pinch of xanthan gum and it seems to have done the trick. Other than that, we followed the recipe and got some amazing results! Martina, your dessert section is amazing – can’t wait to try more recipes!
