Vegan Keto Chick’n with Cauliflower Mash, String Beans & Mushroom Gravy

Whether you are on keto diet or not, I am sure you would enjoy this delicious Vegan Keto Chick’n with Cauliflower Mash. Therefore, I must also introduce you to an amzing product, the Soy Curls by Butler Foods. They are available on Amazon as well, if you wish to have them delivered fast.

I found this versatile product in Vegan Boutique many years ago, when I was living few months in Montreal. It was love at the first sight, lol. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find it anywhere in Toronto. Yet, after searching the internet, I found the company, but back then it was very expensive to order directly from them. The price for delivery cost more than the product, lol. So you can imagine the excitement when I found out they are available on Amazon now.

In addition, my daughter found out that ordering directly from the company now, is very feasible as well. Evethough, it takes longer to deliver. The choice is yours; it may also depend on where you live. Nevertheless, I highly recommend, because, as I said, they are versatile and also easy to prepare.

In this case, I decided to make Vegan Keto Chick’n with Cauliflower Mash since this diet has been so popular lately. However, I like to clarify, I am not on keto diet. My friend was and she shared lots of information with me and I did my own research online as well. It definitely is a great diet if you wish to loose weight fast, but it’s not easy especially the the first few days. But before you decide to go for it I suggest to do your own study. For example reading Wikipedia first is a good idea.

Nonetheless, vegan or plant based keto is even more challenging than regular kind. It means giving up even source of protein such as beans and quinoa, corn and squashes, which means you are left with tofu, tempeh and nuts. Well you can eat most of vegan meat substitutes, especially Beyond Meat and some Gardein products. Yet they are not so versatile as Soy Curls and I also believe, not as healthy. You may also check some vegan keto websites to see for yourself.

Otherwise, I don’t have too many keto recipes on my blog yet, although I am definitely going to create a few. In the meantime. you can check the GREEN KETO SALAD and VEGGIE CHOWDER, although you would have to skip the corn in this one. Also, the SPINACH TOFU SCRAMBLE is suitable for keto diet, as long as you omit the waffles. Anyway, I guess that is all for now! Thank you for visiting and feel free to contact me with questions or suggestions.
