What are your favorite high fat veggie recipes?

Hi all,

I've been on again, off again with the ketogenic diet and think I have finally found the formula that works for me - eating plenty of high fat veggie dishes. I seem to over eat the protein unless I'm having a fair amount of veggies, but I can't stand the veggies without plenty of fat.

Most veggie recipes out there are of the "healthy low fat" variety so I've had trouble finding good choices. I usually saute up some bacon and/or drown the dish in butter afterwards, but I'm wondering what your favorite variations are?

Thanks!

Mike

Hi Mike,
I love string beans cooked in lots of bacon. Broccoli with homemade mayo. Blue cheese dressing (homemade - Blue cheese + hwc) on romaine. Or avocado in any form. Avocados are a super food!

Cabbage fried in bacon grease! Broccoli drenched in Alfredo sauce! Any and every veggie covered in garlic & herb Kerrygold! Linda Sue's Mockafoni and Cheese is great too, it has about 10 grams of protein a serving, and 18g of fat. I sub in broccoli for cauliflower and top it with parmesan at the end before I broil it for a couple minutes. So good!

Don't forget mashed cauliflower. I made it this evening with a combination of sour cream, butter and olive oil. And then added a bit more butter at the table.
Nom nom.

Stir fry some broccoli then stir up a oz of sour cream in the serving bowl. Very tasty.

Cabbage fried in bacon grease is delicious. I can't believe no one told me about that till about 9 years ago.

These are fantastic ideas! Thank you all. mizzcase thank you in particular for mentioning Alfredo sauce - I can't believe I've been low carb for a year and a half and never even thought about Alfredo sauce! I am not sure I can handle all the dairy but I sure am going to try!

svenskamae I actually made some rainbow chard tonight that was fantastic. Cooked up 4 strips of chopped bacon, then added 2 tbs butter with a little lemon juice and garlic, then added chard and covered for about 4 mins. I could live on that stuff!

I also have a family favorite - brussel sprouts with bacon and toasted pine nuts.

Keep them coming everyone!

Another good thing on brussels sprouts (and asparagus, and just about any other veggie) is hollandaise sauce. If you don't feel like making your own, trader joe's has it premade. :9 I also really like sauteed cabbage cooked in coconut oil. It's a good main dish with a bit of protein added to it, as well, and it's filling.

Steam some cauli, toss in some cream cheese, sprinkle w cheese and pop it under the broiler for a minute or in the over for a few.

Here is one of my fav main dishes; saute some garlic and red pepper flakes in a good amt of EVOO then add a bunch of green beans ( frozen in my house, canned will turn to mush), cover and allow to sizzle for a few min. When almost done slice in some brat/italian sausage or whatever you have in the house.
When it's back up to temp adjust seasoning and eat.

My fav soup; Simmer some cauli/broccoli in stock until almost done (a few min), add in the sausage as above (spicy for me). When it's back up to temp add a scoop of sour cream and stir in.....eat.

Most of my favorites involve bacon grease. One that hasn't been mentioned so far is yellow summer squash sauteed in bacon grease and I like a bunch of red onion in there, too.

I also love to make a soup of chicken bone broth, garlic, onion (sometimes leave out the onion and its fine) and tons of escarole.

Also, you can whip up a low carb peanut sauce pretty easily and that would be yummy over a lot of different cooked veggies or salad or a stir fry with meat. I like to make a salad with red leaf lettuce, cucumber, mint, basil, and cilantro with peanut sauce, and it's good with some chicken or pork on top.

Last night I made a skillet of steamed fresh kale and had a nice portion tossed with a Tbl of butter - it was so good. I eat a lot of frozen artichoke hearts (from Trader Joes), sautéed in butter or coconut oil and various seasonings, also I like fresh green beans sautéed in lard or ghee over high heat until wrinkly and lightly browned - really good. Those are my favorites.

My boss just told me about a braised brussels sprout recipe that she found on the NPR website. Can't link - do a search for npr braised brussels sprouts and look for the article entitled "Understanding the Brussels Sprout". I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds oh so delicious!

I like to steam some fresh broccoli and then, separately, fry some diced onion in butter, add some HWC and shredded cheddar, stir until creamy, then mix with the broccoli.

Food Network Chef Bobby Flay has a great recipe for cauliflower gratin on the Food Network website. We also like sauteed fresh green beans in olive oil, fresh garlic and fresh ginger. Check out Bobby Flay's cole slaw recipe which has lots of sour cream and mayo. You can also roast vegetables in olive oil and garlic. In your grocery store produce section, you may find a product called Broccoli Slaw, which is excellent. We use that for stir fries -- just sautee in vegetable oil with fresh garlic and lots of ginger and a dash of hot sauce.

Another idea is to take a tomato, scoop out the insides and fill with pesto, sprinkle with a little garlic and top with romano or parmesan cheese and then bake it for 20 minutes. I also roast cherry tomatoes in olive oil, fresh basil and garlic too -- they are delicious and very sweet tasting. Another good idea is to make a creamy herb dip (sour cream, cream cheese, mayo, fresh dill, scallions, fresh parsley, salt & pepper) and have that with raw veggies like radishes, celery, cucumber, fennel, tomatoes, asparagus, etc.

Oh and don't forget steamed asparagus with homemade hollandaise sauce!

I love sauteed spinach in olive oil or butter. Add a touch of salt and garlic and a pat of butter on top when ready to eat... Velvety goodness!

Cauliflower cheese is always fabulous...

Broccoli with browned butter and roasted almonds...

Any kind of salad with a good vinaigrette...

Grilled green asparagus, when ready pour over extra virgin olive oil and sea salt...

I had lunch at an Afghani restaurant today, and with the kebabs ate some cabbage cooked with a ton of spices (so much turmeric it was orange), spinach that had green peppers and herbs (cilantro for sure, garlic...?), and stewed eggplant with tomatoes. The eggplant also had some yogurt and cilantro sauce, in addition to the usual cilantro based sauce with the kebabs. All with lots of curry type spices (wish I knew which) and lot of olive oil. I NEED to find some recipes for these.

LOTS of olive oil!

Mike,
Regarding the broccoli with browned butter:

I would steam the broccoli, which was cut into florets before steaming, then in another pan brown a good amount of butter, till it goes all nutty, but not burnt. At the end, throw in the almond slivers and pour this over the steamed broccoli. Add sea salt to taste... My MIL makes this to perfection, and she knows nothing about LC, LOL!

Yesterday evening I had eggplant which I cubed and I slow sauteed this with some Indian Spices (turmeric, cumin, coriander and mustard seeds; first sweat them in a little ghee), salt, pepper, garlic and a little tomato paste in lots of ghee... It goes all soft, gooey and sticky... Soooo good!

My son makes a delicious broccoli in bacon! It is heaven. Fry up the bacon, then remove the bacon and put the fresh broccoli cut up in the bacon grease and saute...then add the bacon back in at the end! One of the main reasons I started the program with him!!
Love all the wonderful recipes and ideas.
I do have one question though....what is HWC??? Since I am rather new, I am clueless. Thanks!

I like summer squash mash - slice a yellow squash or zucchini and boil until tender. Drain and return to heat. Add HWC and butter (amounts depend on amount of squash cooked, but I use enough to make it slightly soupy) then stir vigorously to 'mash' up the squash. Turn heat up to high - stirring constantly to reduce liquid. Salt and pepper to taste - it's a wonderful, creamy comfort food.

Wow! That sounds really good. I have some squash I need to use up too.
