Keto Zucchini & “Rice” Gratin – Low Carb Zucchini Casserole
Have you ever found a recipe in a book or magazine that wasn’t low carb, but looked delicious? In this video, I’m looking at a few techniques that low carb and keto cooks can use to lower the carb counts of a recipe. It’s not always possible, but with a little ingenuity, I can usually make it work.
This recipe originated from the July 2017 issue of Southern Living magazine, one of my all-time favorite publications. Tucked away in the last few pages is a recipe for Zucchini Rice Gratin, which they state was inspired by Julia Child’s recipe for Tian de Courgettes au Riz (Zucchini Rice Gratin). I took a look at both recipes and developed a plan of attack to bring this beautiful casserole to the dinner tables of low carb and ketogenic eaters everywhere. I successfully lowered the carb count from 28g in the original recipe to 6.5g in my low carb version!
