No-Patatas Bravas

January is Tapas month at the 2KetoDudes test kitchen.

In blue we have Albóndigas en Salsa: Carl’s Keto Tapas Meatballs (navy), Pork Belly bites (sky blue)  with mayonnaise with a dash of horseradish (white), an this recipe (red) Patatas Bravas without the Potatoes.  The trick was to use red radishes instead of potatoes.  This recipe also uses the Smoked tomato sauce.

  1. I had assumed, being a root veggie, that radishes were higher carb, but they’re actually really low. That’s awesome. Radishes would be awesome textural replacements for potatoes in many dishes and soups. I wonder how they would work instead of cauliflower in @carl’s clam chowder.

  2. That looks delish. Who says keto is boring?

  3. @richard - which kind of chorizo? There’s the Portuguese / Carribean kind, which is firm like salami, and the Mexican, which is soft & cooks like ground (minced) hamburger but spicy & porky.

  4. And some people think potatoes and onions are root vegetables when potatoes are stem tissue and onions are a mix of stem and leaf tissue.

  5. Sweet potatoes are true root vegetables. And in general are considered healthier/lower glycemic/better nutritional profile than white potatoes though both should be avoided or heavily restricted on keto.
