Keto Spinach & Cheddar Soufflé

spinach souffles (1)

I love meat. I adore it. There is no time of day – sleeping, showering, jury duty – when I couldn’t go for a nice grass-fed ribeye. But, I acknowledge that there are folks out there who prefer their eats a little less “moo” and a lot more “imperceptible sound of plant growth.” In fact, one of those people has been my boyfriend for the past 17 years. (Life is weird sometimes. I’ve learned to stop asking questions.)

So, for him and several of my similarly meat-averse friends, I’ve decided to attempt some vegetarian keto cooking. This spinach soufflé was my first experiment. I thought it was damn delicious, frankly. That boyfriend guy liked it, too.

I Wrote A Book!

When I was a little girl, I wanted to be just two things when I grew up: five foot nine and a writer. I only made it to five foot seven, but guess what! Yesterday I self-published a book!

How to Celebrate National Days: Instructions for Enjoying Daily Pseudo-Holidays, Volume 1 is the work of my not-so-secret alter-ego, Certain Doom.  Over on Certain Doom’s site (followmetocertaindoom.com), I post questionable advice for a different “national day” celebration every single day. It’s a lot of fun and surprisingly challenging, but more than anything else, it allows my mind to go to some very weird places. Here’s a recent example…

Winner Winner Chicken Lunch

Pan-Fried Chicken Mushrooms en Creme.png

I couldn’t think of a clever preamble to this recipe. I considered referencing Food, Inc. and the terror of chickens it instilled in me. Then, I considered a reference to the amazing Jacques Pépin, his apparent love of chicken, and the recently released Jacques Pépin: The Art of Craft from the American Masters series.

But, you know what? This is simple food. Let’s give it a simple post. Fuck it.

Jucy (Lamb) Lucy

Lamb Burger

I’ve found it pretty easy to get stuck in a ground-meat rut on this Keto diet – it’s cheap and easy and reasonably fatty. So, the other day, I challenged myself to do something a bit more interesting and a lot more photogenic. And, it’s still super easy! Here’s my ground lamb version of the classic Jucy Lucy on a little arugula salad.

Keto Baking is Hard

Despite all the benefits this keto lifestyle has provided, goddammit do I miss baked goods.

So, this weekend, I tried my hand at two different baked goods – one savory, one sweet. The verdict? Maybe keto baking isn’t for me. 😦

Still, I took some pictures and thought I’d share my failure all the same.

Brocc-iflower Soup. Get hype.

Brocc-iflower Soup.png

You ever buy a bunch of vegetables thinking: “Oh, man. I’m going to eat so healthy! Vegetables are amazing and I am a person who eats them!” and then a week later you still have mounds of untouched broccoli and cauliflower in your fridge?

Well, here’s a soup you can make with that untouched broccoli and cauliflower. Hell, you might even go to the store and just pick some up – this nonsense is pretty fucking tasty. (Though all the heavy cream may have something to do with it, but, whatever: #ketolife, ya’ll.)

Here’s what you’ll need and how to put it all together…
