Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes are a great way to make you feel warm inside…until you remember exactly how many carbs that equates to (about 300!).
If you’re looking for a low carb replacement for potatoes, look no further. Recipes for keto potatoes may use cauliflower as a replacement, but there’s actually an even better tasting ingredient for making a low-carb potato gratin.
Rutabaga, or swede if you’re fancy.
Root Vegetables: The Rutabaga
Rutabaga belongs to the cabbage family as it’s a root vegetable (which is a cross between turnips and cabbage). They contain many nutrients such as high levels of potassium, magnesium, calcium, and iron.
Some of the health benefits range from improving digestion, boosting the immune system, and lower blood pressure.
Can your potato chips do that? I thought not.
This recipe makes for an amazing side dish that’s just oozing with goodness (hello cheddar cheese) whilst curbing those carbs.
This vegetable is a bit of a challenge to prepare with for one’s first try. Make sure you wash it thoroughly to remove any dirt. Place it on a cutting board and cut the top and bottom parts.
