Keto: Dairy free #6

Following a healthy dairy-free diet doesn’t have to mean depriving yourself — and this week’s meal plan is proof of that.

On the menu, we have some spice-heavy keto dishes like our Sindhi-style lamb curry. Additionally, there are some quick and easy weeknight favorites such as our tasty tuna zoodle salad and chicken stir-fry.

While following this plan, if you’re not a big fan of certain ingredients, feel free to swap them. If, for example, you don’t enjoy eating lamb, you could always substitute it for chicken or beef.

The same goes for vegetables. If there’s something you don’t fancy, change it for another low-carb veggie. Check out our visual vegetable guide for more inspiration.

Get ready to enjoy some of our favorite keto meals while staying below 20 grams of net carbs per day.

    about the Tortillas - I think you left out a step. The recipe goes from spreading out the mixture to flattening the ball.
    Thanks,

    Can the almond flour be substituted for coconut flour? If so, how much would be recommended?

    We have not tested this recipe with coconut flour instead of almond flour.

    Wonder if this can be dairy free by using mozzarella "style" shreds?

    How long will it keep for after baking them?

    They will generally keep for 3-5 days but may get a little soggy depending on your climate.

    Could we pan fry the individual tortillas instead of baking in the oven?

    We have not tested these pan fried. The bottom may burn before the top cooks through and they may fall apart when flipping.
