Keto Bread- Easy and Delicious Low Carb Bread

You all probably heard about Low Carb KETO Bread, so I just made my version of the same bread.

When carboholic decide to join the low carb club and cannot live without a slice of bread. That would be me. I just had to clean up my act and start the most strict form of carb cleanse because I felt like I was out of control. 

Have you heard of Keto Bread? I am almost certain that you all probably heard about it, so I just made my version of the same bread.

You guys know that I was baking a homemade bread almost every single day. If not bread than some kind of rolls, focaccia or flatbread.

I am one of those people that would eat heartily bread with pasta. Yup! Guilty as charged… but that was it! It was a time for me to change.

Keto Bread- Easy and Delicious Low Carb Bread

Well, I am entering my fourth week and I feel freaking fantastic. I lost lots of inches, a nice chunk of weight for a beginner, not too much like some people, but it is going slow and steady which I like the most.

My sleep and energy level drastically improved, I no longer snore, I have far fewer cramps and no headaches. Overall, so far so good!

I know we all have different successes and even failures, some see amazing results in a shorter period of time and for some of us takes time. That’s okay. We are all different and unique.

What can I say? I have never felt better, however, yes, I missed bread the most so I made my own. We tried to experiment for a week with it, and I think this is it. I absolutely love this version.

Keto Bread- Easy and Delicious Low Carb Bread

The first one that I made was too eggy and buttery, so I dropped to six-room temp eggs, added ghee instead of coconut oil, and used a bit of sour cream to make it rise up a bit more.

My family wanted to support me so they join Keto Fun as well. So now, I need one fridge just for bacon and eggs because they literally ate over the weekend my week supply of both.

Also, they sincerely love this bread as well and it was gone for lunch. Like, seriously?! I could eat this bread all week long. LE SIGH!

Anyhow, It is utterly scrumptious and so tasty! I know this bread is for sure going in the rotation as long as we are on Keto. I might do some updating like adding cheese or herbs.

It tastes like cornbread meets savory pound cake, but way less eggy taste… Hey, it replaces reg bread beautifully, so you can eat it once a day or every other day.

I hope you guys like this bread as much we do. With that being said, please, comment and tag me if you make it.

This post is sponsored by Mission Foods. The opinions and text are all mine.

An air fryer is one of my favorite kitchen appliances, so I thought to use Mission® Tortillas and create these simple vegetarian air fryer mushroom and cheese taquitos.

 

Don’t you just love the way these taquitos look?

 

Not only are you going to love the taste and texture, but they are super easy to prep, plus you will not miss the meat factor at all.

 

Obviously, these are cooked in an air fryer, however, you can easily use your skillet or bake them in the oven.

Air Fryer Mushroom and Cheese Taquitos

 

I partnered with Mission Foods for this post, so I used Mission Foods tortillas to create this delightful vegetarian recipe, which can be turned into a vegan dish if you use plant-based cheese.

 

Ever since I started my low-carb journey, I began experimenting with different recipes, and I enjoyed making my meals using Mission Foods Carb Balance tortillas. I love that they are keto-friendly, soft, and taste so good! It’s the perfect solution for any picky eaters out there.

 

If you did not know already, you can find Mission tortillas in the bread or Mexican/multicultural foods aisle at Publix.

 

mission low carb tortillas

I like that they have so many options for anyone’s taste and dietary needs; gluten-free tortillas, protein tortillas, whole wheat tortillas, low carb tortillas, low-calorie tortillas, and smaller street taco-sized tortillas.

 

Anyway, I thought it would be an excellent substitution for shredded taco chicken if I used King oyster mushrooms. I love mushrooms, so this was very flavorful.

 

Just in case you are unable to find King oyster mushrooms, I would suggest shiitakes, which are easier to find and less expensive, and just as delicious.

I will love it if you try this recipe. During the Be the Best You promotion going on now through 2/20/21 at Publix, you can get a few packs of Mission Tortillas, whichever you prefer, and create a delicious meal with 55¢ off any one (1) Mission Carb Balance, Protein, Gluten Free or Organic Tortillas 8–20 oz.

Yield: SERVES 4

Air Fryer Mushroom and Cheese Taquitos

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

An air fryer is one of my favorite kitchen appliances, so I thought to use Mission Tortillas and create these simple vegetarian air fryer mushrooms and cheese taquitos. They are super simple and tasty,

Ingredients

  • 1 Mission Fajita - Whole Wheat - Carb Balance - 8ct - 8.0oz
  • 2-3 King Oyster mushrooms, depending on the size
  • 1/8 cup olive oil + for brushing
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend, or any other in hand

Homemade Taco Seasoning

  • 1/4-1/2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste

Instructions

  1. Slightly wet a cotton kitchen towel and clean oyster mushrooms.
  2. Separate or cut off the mushroom top from the stem. We will use only stems for this recipe.
  3. Using a fork, apply pressure up and down lengthwise, all around.
  4. Then with fingers, pull apart oyster mushroom stems.
  5. Combine all the spice mix ingredients in a mixing bowl, mix well, add oil and like juice, and olive oil. 
  6. Add shredded mushrooms into a bowl with spices and coat well.
  7. Place on the baking sheet and bake or air fry at 350F for 7-10 minutes.
  8. After mushrooms are cooked (sometimes I like to cut them in hlaf becase they could be too long), add about 2-3 tablespoons of shredded cheese, a shredded Mexican blend of cheeses work best.
  9. Add seasoned mushrooms and roll tortilla into a thin roll; place in the baking sheet and continue.
  10. This makes 6 to 8 Mission Fajita size tortillas.
  11. Brush each rolled tortilla with olive oil and air fry at 375F for 10 minutes.
  12. Serve with pico de gallo and guacamole.

Notes

  • You may add 1 tablespoon of corn starch to taco seasoning if you wish.
  • You could use other Mission Tortillas; gluten-free tortillas, protein tortillas, whole wheat tortillas, low carb tortillas,
    low-calorie tortillas, or smaller street taco-sized tortillas.
  • Plan the amount of filling if your tortillas are larger.

Easy Chicken Marsala

Easy Chicken Marsala

Chicken Marsala is an Italian-American dish made from chicken fillets or cutlets, mushrooms, garlic or onions, and Marsala wine.

It is an easy yet extremely delicious way to prepare the chicken with incredibly creamy mushroom sauce.

Easy Chicken Marsala

My family and I absolutely adore this dish. Well, what’s not to like. Am I right or am I right?

It is one of those dishes that you can literally eat it with a slice of bread and mop all the goodness or over potatoes, pasta or perhaps rice.

Since we are mostly following low carb diet, as well as gluten-free I served it with low carb wraps and used GF flour to make these.

However, in the recipe, you will find a classic recipe. Yes, you can modify it to support your lifestyle just like I did to support mine.

So, since I fully started cooking, 21 years ago, I made this recipe probably every other week.

I got to tell you that I am a mushroom lover which is the best part of this dish. Needless to say, I could eat them daily.

Easy Chicken Marsala

When I was still eating potatoes regularly, and not only from time to time on my cheat days, I would serve Chicken Marsala over mashed potatoes. Oh, boy! It is so good!

I must admit that if I choose one meal as my last one that would be exactly it; mashed potatoes, creamy mushroom sauce and chicken.

With that being said, I really love many dishes so I cannot be certain that I can pick that one and not anything else.

I could probably fit three dining room tables with my favourite dishes to be my last meal. Haha!

A joke on the side, I really hope you make this one. I know it is a well-known recipe, and many of you probably already made it before.

However, let me gently remind you to make it again.

Easy Chicken Marsala

On the other side, if you have never made this one before, grab your skillet and start making. You won’t be sorry!

It is seriously the most comforting dish ever, and freaking easy as well as delicious.

Also, you could use pork or beef for this recipe, although the cooking time will be different.

Recipe
Yield: Serves 4

Easy Chicken Marsala

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Chicken:

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts halves, sliced horizontally in half to make 8 cutlets.
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter divided

Marsala Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1⁄4 cup dry marsala wine
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • Generous pinch of salt and ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon flour or any other thickening agent + water
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley or freshly chopped

Instructions

Chicken:

  1. Cut each chicken half in half horizontally. Season it with some salt and pepper on both sides and garlic powder.
  2. Heat oil and butter in a large frying pan or a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken cutlets until golden-brown on both sides, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. If your skillet/pan is smaller then cook the chicken in batches so the pan is not overcrowded.
  3. Transfer to a platter and cover with a lid or aluminium foil until ready to use.

Mushroom sauce:

  1. In the same large frying pan or a skillet with grease leftover from the chicken, add more butter.
  2. When the butter has melted add onion and garlic and stir well, then add sliced mushrooms and cook for a couple of minutes until browned.
  3. Scrap any of the leftover chicken bits off the bottom of the pan while mixing it.
  4. Pour in the dry marsala wine and the broth. Simmer until reduced by half and starting to thicken, about 10 minutes on low temperature.
  5. Pour in the cream stir to combine.
  6. Take 2 tablespoons of flour or any other thicker such as cornstarch and mix with 4 tablespoons of water. Mix until smooth. Add thickener to the sauce and mix well until it starts to get thicker, a few minutes. The sauce will continue getting thick even off heat, just keep that in mind. If you see that it gets too thick stop adding more and you can always add more liquid to make it thinner.
  7. Return the chicken into the sauce. Add all those chicken drippings as well. Cook until the sauce coat all the chicken, reheated and gets thicker and shiny. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve.

Notes

  • Other thickeners:
    cornstarch, arrowroot, tapioca flour or starch, potato starch.
  • Low Carb Roux and thickener for keto sauces:
    Rule of thumb for using xanthan gum is 1/8 teaspoon per 1 cup of flour. 1/4 cup water, 2 tablespoons oil and 1/2 Tablespoon xanthan gum. Mix and add to the sauces.
  • I did not use any flour to fry chicken to show you that you could make this without it, especially if you are on the low carb diet.
  • You could use 1/4-1/2 cup all-purpose flour (alternative almond flour or GF flour) and dredge the chicken in the flour mixture and shake off excess before cooking.
