These little low carb garlic parmesan rolls make the best accompaniment to your favourite healthy soup or stew. Serve them hot out of the oven and slathered with butter for the perfect keto side dish.
Keeping it short and sweet today because Christmas is almost here and I am swamped. As are all of you, I am sure. It’s a wonderful but nutty time of year. It’s supposed to be about love and family and giving and community, and it is all of that, of course. But as you get older, you are juggling kids and jobs and myriad other responsibilities, and it can often feel like a bit of a sprint to the finish. You don’t really relax and enjoy the holiday spirit until maybe the day before, if you’re lucky. Sometimes not until the day of. But I find, no matter how hectic my holiday lead-up is, I always enjoy the actual day. It’s by far my favourite holiday, and there’s nothing quite like it.
But perhaps I should say I am keeping this post short and savoury, not short and sweet. I had the sense that readers were feeling a little burnt out on the holiday cookies and other sweets. I get it, I really do. Every year, I get going on my holiday recipes a little earlier to try to get ahead of the curve. And then I end up with a whole lot of low carb holiday recipes that I lob at you, my readers, one after the other in quick succession. It’s bound to lead to a little holiday goodie weariness. I am feeling a touch of that myself. So as I got ready to post yet another sweet treat that would just get lost in the huge holiday shuffle of sweet treats, I paused. And decided to ask my Facebook fans what they would rather see: Sweet (low carb Pecan Toffee Bars) or Savoury (these low carb, grain-free Parmesan Garlic Knots). The answer wasn’t entirely unanimous but it was about 80/20 in favour of savoury.
So here they are, yet another fun riff on the mozzarella dough, this time turned into little mini rolls you can dunk into your favourite soup or stew. They are also wonderful just eaten on their own as a little keto snack. Slathered in melted butter, garlic, and parmesan, how could you possible go wrong? And just to give you a little soup inspiration, I will be posting all the best low carb soup recipes of 2015 in a few days as well.
And don’t worry, my sweet treats lovers. Those Pecan Toffee Bars will be coming soon…just not quite in time for Christmas. This weary mama needs a little break herself!
