Three Keto Chinese Food Recipes!

by hungryelephant

So with the holidays right around the corner, there are many people that don’t celebrate. Instead, ordering Chinese food is a tradition among households both in North America and across the pond! So I decided to list my three favourite keto Chinese food recipes.

This post includes: Sesame fried chicken, cauliflower fried rice & garlic broccoli.

Up until recently, I didn’t want to deep fry anything but I found some avocado oil and my friends over at KetoVale had a great idea of using protein powder to deep fry. I keep seeing this as a huge success, so I decided to try!

 

 

Now I will be completely honest. I’m not a fan of deep frying in avocado oil. I found that it had a weird taste too it. I highly recommend using beef drippings/tallow instead. It has a high smoke point and it leaves no aftertaste.

Please, please, please remember to use precautions when deep frying. Peanut oil and refined avocado oil are the best 2 kinds to fry with because they have a higher smoke point. Please keep a lid nearby to extinguish any flames.
