These Fries Are Keto-Friendly!! 

Sure - but not the French fries that most people are so used to. Don’t worry, if you used to be addicted to regular French fries made of potatoes (I truly was an addict), you’re going to love these Ketogenic recipes:

  • Keto Paprika Lime Green Bean Fries - If I hadn’t made these with my own hands, I would never have guessed these were green beans. Crunchy and absolutely delightful, these Keto fries are going to blow your mind.
  • Spicy Seasoned Keto Zucchini Fries - This is not just a side dish; these zucchini fries make a great movie-night snack, and even the kids are crazy about these.

Your Favorite Side Dish Recipes Made Keto... 

Great news; some of your old favorites may already be Keto-friendly! And it’s fairly easy to tweak them, if they aren’t.

Use Ketogenic flours in place of wheat flour, or just ditch some of the ingredients that are not Keto. Potatoes can be replaced with low-carb vegetables, and instead of dairy you can use almond or coconut alternatives.

An even easier option is to make these recipes that are already 100% Ketogenic, but very similar to your old favorites:
