Zucchini & Ground Beef Casserole

"This is so simple to make and tastes great. I added garlic but followed the rest as written. Very enjoyable meal.”


Low-Carb Taco Bake

“This is definitely in the ‘keep’ stack of our low-carb choices! My husband has been recently diagnosed diabetic and we are trying many new low-carb recipes. This is one that he really enjoyed.”


Low-Carb Beef & Cheesy Spaghetti Squash Bake

“This is a good recipe. I would have liked to have a solid measurement for spaghetti squash, as ‘large’ can really be relative. I cooked a few squashes just to be sure to have enough to mix in. I added mushrooms in place of celery.”


Low-Carb Slaw

“This has become a new family favorite! After the first time following the recipe, I changed from hamburger to ground turkey, and the meat didn't overpower the yummy Asian flavors.”


Low-Carb Chili

"The spices are spot on! Don't change them until you've at least tried them as listed in the ingredients. I used garlic powder instead of fresh garlic. I also added a can of Rotel tomatoes for more flavor and bulk.”

-Mr. Sandman

Low-Carb Supreme Pizza Casserole

“I’d give it ten stars if I could. Anyone who is on a low-carb diet and misses pizza should try this.”

-Grandma Winnie

Kofte Kebabs with Cucumber Mint Sauce

“Yummy! We loved it. I didn't make the sauce as we already had some. I barbecued our kebabs, and they were delicious! I think i'll turn these into hamburger patties next time & make burgers out of them — delicious!"


Laurie's Low-Carb Meatloaf

"My wife is doing a low-carb diet, and she loves this. The only difference is I used chicken broth instead of tomato sauce. She said it tasted like a fancy restaurant dish.”

-Will W.

Low-Carb Stuffed Bell Peppers

"Absolutely delicious! I am in the transition from vegetarian to a ketogenic diet, and this was a great way to start off. Great flavor, and the meat wasn't dry at all.”


Low-Carb Breakfast Balls

"I really enjoyed these as a no-carb breakfast. Today, I am adding spinach and garlic powder."


Best Hamburger Diane

"It was easy to make, had a great flavor and my kids even liked it. I suggest more sauce than recipe calls for, because you will want to have it to spoon over the burgers when served."

-Caprice Castano

Stuffed Bitter Gourd

“Bitter gourd is a natural blood purifier and has numerous benefits. Try out this wonderful recipe of stuffed bitter gourd. Incredibly easy, simple and tasteful.”

-Hina Ali

Zucchini Beef Skillet

"This recipe was a hit with the family! Since a couple of the reviews mentioned that it might need a little more flavor, I adjusted the recipe as follows: one teaspoon Tajín (Mexican seasoning), one 14-ounce can diced tomatoes with jalapeño peppers (I drained the liquid from the tomatoes into a measuring cup and then added water to the half-cup mark).”


Low-Carb Lasagna Mama

"This has become a staple at our house. I changed the ground beef to hot Italian turkey sausage. I buy the links and cut off the casings. The dish has more spice with just the addition of the sausage."


Low-Calorie, Low-Carb Zucchini Pasta & Ground Beef

This simple, keto-friendly “pasta” dish is simply-yet-boldly seasoned with cumin and chili powder.

Cincinnati Chili II

"My husband had prepared this recipe for dinner and mentioned he only cooked it for an hour (instead of three hours) since he had not read the instructions, and it was delicious. Simmering for three hours will be fabulous the next time!”


Nigerian Kofta

These Nigerian-inspired kofte are easy to whip up. You can grill them over charcoal, pan fry them or bake in a hot oven.


Turkish-Style Mince

“This recipe has been influenced by a popular dish from Turkey called lahmacun and a popular Indian dish called keema. The combination of flavours within the mince give a warm, delicately spiced taste.”

-Fit Cookin

Balkan "Sausages"

“I’ve made this recipe several times, and it's delicious. I change it up a little with the spices and add more lamb and no pork.”

-Mary Beth N.

Croatian BBQ Burger

"This was amazingly simple and extremely yummy!”

-L.A. Stewart

Low-Carb Mexican Beef & Spinach Casserole

"My favorite recipe on this site! I changed it a little — no onions, and after the ground beef is cooked, I add everything to the slow cooker and let it cook for a couple of hours.”


Low-Carb Cheeseburger Quiche

“This is awesome, especially if you are ‘low-carbing.’ My entire family loves this and requests it every week. Even our youngest children (eight and nine) love this recipe.”


Ground Beef with Cabbage

"This was ‘wunderbar!’ You can add just about any spice to this to jazz it up. Try peppers and garlic or curry powder. I’ve already created five different dinners from this one recipe.”

-Chef Kaydia Ji

Romanian-Style Ground Beef "Sausages"

“Lovely! The entire family fully enjoyed this recipe. I followed the advice of others and left the baking soda the same amount and doubled the amount of all the spices. Excellent!”
