Default Low Carb Side Dishes

Looking for some simple and convenient side dishes/recipes to serve with dinner. Something that doesn't scare the kids. My wife hates mushrooms so that's out of the picture.

Anything that can be served on a plate with protein

I have a couple Paleo books but the side dishes/veggie dishes aren't that great. Many are mushroom-based.

Nice! That's exactly the type of thing I'm looking for.

Don't know if this is the sort of side dish, but wok fried/cooked (since it's more steamed than fried) veggies:

Tablespoon of oil (of choice)
Sliced peppers (red, green and yellow)
cauliflower florets, small
broccoli florets, small
thinly sliced carrot
add squeeze of lemon juice and a dash of worcestershire sauce (or flavourings of choice)


cook, serve. veggies can be added, such as mange tout etc, as desired, baby sweetcorn...the combos are endless and it's quick and easy to alter and you can even serve most of it, and then add some mushrooms in just for one person and serve the remainder.

Pretty much a 3-minute cook.

As much as most people don't like bb.com, the recipes are still applicable.

For times I craved sugar, they helped with keto brownies at 1g of carbs.
Check the recipe section. It was helpful for my keto diet.

You did say simple didn't you? I have really started to enjoy steamed brocoli since doing keto last year.

I never would have thought I would eat it. But, keto style w/ lots of cheese got me to rethink.

I just put a little water, oil, or butter in a microwavable dish, put in the raw brocoli, add seasoning (I like garlic, pepper, and sea salt) cover with something and push start. 2 min is what I like in my microwave. If you want cheese, add it the last several seconds to melt.
