Keto halloumi cheese and avocado plate
Real food on a plate. Fried halloumi. Avocado. Cucumber and pistachios. Sour cream and lemon. Because a keto dinner doesn't have to be complicated.
This recipe has been added to the shopping list.
Making low carb simple
- Slice the cheese into serving-sized portions and fry it in olive oil over medium heat until it becomes golden. A few minutes on each side should be about right.
- Serve with avocado, cucumber, Greek yogurt, pistachios, and lemon.
- Drizzle olive oil over the vegetables. Season with salt and pepper.
Go ahead and vary the crunchy veggie... or better yet, make a medley. Celery, radishes, jicama, kohlrabi, and even romaine lettuce all work well with or as a substitute for the cucumber.
If I added Celery, radishes and romaine lettuce
1/ would the carbs be the same or higher, 2/ would I still get into Ketosis.
I work and can't use some of your meals on the challenge either (need lunches that don't require heating), so I'm adding this for lunch in the challenge.
Halloumi has about 3.5 g carbs per 100g. This may vary by brand so check the label on the brand you bought.
That's going to depend on the size of your cucumber. An average medium cucumber would be about 200g.
I’m new to Keto, joined in just yesterday, can’t wait to start this awesome journey and loose all the weight that want to loose all this years.
I have few questions on counting macros, little confused on how much fat, protein and Carb are right for me.
Also I’m vegetarian
Hope someone can answer my questions
Regards and all the best to all😊

You can use either!
You can choose how many servings to make using the drop down menu above the list of ingredients. You can click the Nutrition+ tab under the list of ingredients for full nutrition information.
You would want to choose a cheese that will brown without completely melting. Halloumi is similar enough to other cheeses which may be easier to find like bread cheese or frying cheese. Some Mexican cheese, like queso frier may work also.
You can use any yogurt or sour cream you can find locally that meet your needs. This recipe used to call for sour cream but was updated to use the Greek yogurt instead as it is higher protein. I've asked the recipe team to update step 2 to say yogurt instead of sour cream.
