No need to blow your healthy keto diet during the holidays. Get all the best low carb and keto Thanksgiving recipes here for a happy and indulgent celebration!
Are you still wondering what to cook for Thanksgiving this year? Or at least, what to cook that will fit your ketogenic diet and yet still be delicious enough to satisfy? Never fear, I’ve got you covered. I searched high and low for the best keto Thanksgiving recipes the internet has to offer. I worked on this list for a long time, trying to find you the classics made low carb, gluten free, and sugar free.
Here’s the deal. I figure you know how to make turkey low carb. Slap some butter on that thing, sprinkle it with herbs, toss it in the oven. If you’re desperate for gravy, collect the pan juices, reduce them in a pan and add your thickener of choice – I like arrowroot starch but many people prefer xanthan gum so it will have fewer carbs. If you’re still uncertain, check out this primer on low carb gravy by Laura Dolson. Or go hog wild and make this BACON GRAVY from Fluffy Chix Cook to go with your turkey (bacon and turkey? A match made in heaven!).
Cranberry sauce? That’s ridiculously easy to make low carb as well. You don’t need me for that. Just grab a bag of berries, put them in a pan with a cup of water and the low carb sweetener equivalent of a cup of sugar, bring to a boil and cook until most of the berries have popped (about 10 minutes). Bam!
But it’s all the other Thanksgiving recipes that get tricky on a keto diet. Apps and sides and dessert, that’s where you might find yourself floundering. But you don’t have to suffer without all of your favourites, believe me. There are delicious keto recipes to replace all your old standards. From low carb stuffing to sugar free pumpkin pie, there are recipes here to make your holidays perfect.
Keto Appetizers & Cocktails
Do you start your festivities off with appetizers and a beverage? These sugar-free cocktails and keto snacks will keep your party humming along in a healthy fashion.
Keto Stuffing Recipes
The best part of any Thanksgiving meal is the stuffing. And yes, there is such a thing as keto stuffing. All the best recipes are right here!
Keto Thanksgiving Sides
Non-starchy veggies make tasty low carb holiday side dishes. Think Brussels sprouts, spaghetti squash, cauliflower, and green beans for healthy keto side dishes.
Keto Breads & Biscuits
Low carb cornbread? Yep! Except it really isn’t made with any corn at all. Coconut flour has a surprisingly corn-like flavour when baked into muffins and skillets. If you have my book, The Everyday Ketogenic Kitchen, check out the skillet cornbread recipe on p. 118. It’s divine!
Cheesy Skillet Bread – apparently I have a thing for cheesy bread over the holidays!
