Perfect Keto Meal Inspiration
Did you know that Lo-Dough makes the perfect low-carb coating for meats, vegetables and cheese? Well, it really does - these golden, breaded nuggets of brie prove that point perfectly. Crunchy on the outside and soft and oozing in the middle... What's not to love?
It couldn't be more simple. Make your crumbs, flavouring them up with herbs and seasoning (we added some of Eatlean's brilliant shaker cheese). In a second bowl, whisk up an egg. Cut your brie into about 10 pieces and put them in the bowl with the egg, coat and then throw them into the crumbs and shake until coated. For an extra thick crust, repeat the egg/crumb process a second time. Fry in olive oil (not extra virgin) on a medium/high heat until golden brown. This will give you two generous portions (5 pieces each).
Serving Up A Low-Carb Meal
We've paired our crispy, breaded brie with a reduced carb tomato and chilli chutney. By using erythritol sweetener instead of sugar, the carbs are massively reduced, but the sweet/sour flavour is all still there (the main liquid in the chutney is white wine vinegar. That sweet/sour flavour works perfectly with the rich brie. Alongside a simple salad, this would make the perfect lunch or a lovely evening meal.
If you are following a low carb diet, then you absolutely have to try this - and if you are just generally counting calories, this would make the perfect treat meal that still comes in at under 500 kcal.
