Keto Potato Substitution

One of the most common food items to disappear from your plate when switching to a low carb or keto way of eating is potato.

Luckily the low carb world stumbled onto a quite shocking and genius keto potato substitution.  Radishes.  Yep- radishes. I know, right? This keto grilled chicken goes perfectly with the radishes! 

But I don’t like Radishes 

Don’t worry!

Radishes are known for their crisp, but spicy flavor and texture. Oddly, when you heat a radish the flavor changes almost immediately. There is absolutely ZERO spiciness left once you cook a radish.

What is left is a neutral taste that has substance and crunch, leaving you to easily be tricked into thinking you are eating potatoes. Do they taste like a potato? No.  But, they make a great alternative when on the keto diet.

Radishes can be boiled and pureed, pan fried, oven roasted and even grilled like in this recipe. We skewer chicken and radish then brush them with highly seasoned herb mixture. The result is a faux potato and chicken dish that is hearty and will leave you satisfied.
