Do You Have Your Keto Basics?
A Greek Inspired Side!
We’re big fans of Greek food. It’s hearty and full of exotic flavors that come largely from the herbs and spices they use in their cuisine. Some of the quintessential herbs found in Greek cooking are rosemary, basil, parley and thyme. Then, of course, there’s the liberal amounts of olive oil and balsamic vinegar that they use to cook their food! Sounds perfect for anyone on a keto diet actually.
Have you guys heard of the Mediterranean Diet? It’s similar to keto in that they embrace fat in the forms of fish, nuts and oils. They also embrace wine and a relaxed lifestyle, similar to the principles of a paleo diet/lifestyle! One key difference is that the Mediterranean Diet does allow whole grains and limits meats to mainly fish. We’ll borrow just a few of their diet highlights in our next low carb side idea: Mediterranean Herb Grilled Portobello Mushrooms!
Just look at those herbs!
We used some Greek inspired herbs plus our favorite mushroom pairing – tarragon. Tarragon is a French herb that’s actually part of the sunflower family! It’s got a distinctly sweet aroma and mild flavor, though you don’t want to overdo it, because it can take over the dish. A sprinkle is just enough.
