This is a great low-carb dinner recipe for two. And it's so simple! It's just soft paneer cheese dunked in creamy curry sauce and cooked with spinach. That's it. It's easy to scale up which makes it perfect for meal prep, lunch boxes and batch cooking.

I used our homemade Curry Simmer Sauce which is mild and kid-friendly but you could always add heat by using cayenne pepper or fresh chillies. Fresh spinach can be substituted with frozen and drained spinach, collards or chard. Finally, instead of paneer cheese you could use halloumi or diced chicken unless you are following a vegetarian keto diet.

This easy keto dinner can be served on its own, with extra cauliflower rice or — if you need to keep your carbs low — serve it with shirataki rice. Enjoy!

  1. Prepare the homemade Curry Simmer Sauce by following the instructions here. This will take just 15 minutes. Store any leftover curry sauce in the fridge for up to 5 days. Keto Curried Spinach Paneer Skillet
  2. While the curry sauce is cooking, cut the paneer into about 1 inch (2 cm) pieces. Wash, drain and roughly chop the spinach. If you use baby spinach you don't need to chop it. If you use frozen spinach instead, defrost and drain all the liquid. Keto Curried Spinach Paneer Skillet

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.

I made this last night and it was so easy and so good! Unfortunately, I did not have Paneer, so I used Halloumi, but did not cut back on the salt, and should have. I added 1/4 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper to the sauce when I made it, to give it more kick...the sauce is delicious and I will now look forward to using the leftover sauce very soon!

Thank you so much Diane, I'm glad you enjoyed I like halloumi even more! 😊
