Keto Spaghetti Recipe
Keto Spaghetti is a tasty and healthy dish that is perfect for individuals on a ketogenic diet. Instead of traditional spaghetti pasta, we use a vegetable substitute such as spiralized zucchini and carrot. The flavorful meat sauce, prepared with ground meat, tomatoes, and aromatic spices, gives the dish a unique character. Keto Spaghetti is light, full of flavor, and low in carbohydrates, making it an ideal choice for those who are conscious of their healthy diet. This is a simple recipe that allows you to enjoy your favorite Italian dish without compromising your ketogenic diet.
- 1 medium zucchini
- 1 large carrot
- 1 onion
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 500g ground meat (e.g., beef or poultry)
- 1 can of diced tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil or olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Fresh basil leaves (optional, for garnish)
- Begin by preparing the spaghetti substitute. You can use a spiralizer to process the vegetables or a special vegetable cutting tool that creates long strips resembling spaghetti. In this recipe, I suggest using zucchini and carrot, but you can experiment with other vegetables such as spaghetti squash.
- In a large saucepan or deep skillet, heat coconut oil or olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped onion and garlic, and sauté for a few minutes until they become soft and slightly golden.
- Add the ground meat to the pan and cook until it is well browned. Once the meat is cooked, add the diced tomatoes and tomato paste. Season the sauce with dried oregano, basil, sweet paprika, salt, and pepper. Stir everything together, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 15-20 minutes to allow all the flavors to meld.
- Meanwhile, in a separate pot, cook the previously prepared spaghetti substitute (zucchini and carrot). You can steam them or blanch them in boiling salted water for a few minutes until they become slightly tender. Remember not to overcook them to maintain their crispiness.
- After cooking the spaghetti substitute, drain it and divide it onto plates.
- On each plate, place a portion of the spaghetti substitute, and then top it with the meat sauce. Sprinkle the dish with fresh basil leaves, if desired.
- Enjoy! This dish will surely satisfy your cravings for delicious spaghetti while staying true to your ketogenic diet.
