I'll admit it. This is not my finest looking recipe. I was thinking about reshooting it but in the end I decided to keep it. Make it authentic, real, just like it's supposed to be. It may not look as the most appetizing keto meal but it sure is delicious, convenient and filling!

This easy low-carb bake is a great option to serve any time of the day - for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You only need a few common ingredients to make this satisfying low-carb dinner. All made in one tray with minimum clean up afterwards!

Recipe Tips

We are using meaty sausages with no starches. If possible, use gluten-free sausages that only use raw meat, spices and seasonings. The are a bit crumblier than the ones with added starches but contain more protein to keep you full for longer.

The combination of cabbage, mushrooms, tomatoes and spinach is not used just for flavor. These vegetables are high in electrolytes! Feel free to use lightly cooked spinach instead of frozen, and fresh tomatoes instead of canned tomatoes. Other options that will work well in this recipe are zucchini (courgette), eggplant (aubergine) and red cabbage.

For more flavor, add a tablespoon of Dijon mustard into the cooked vegetables before baking.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
