Keto Eggplant Salad

Keto Eggplant Salad

I never appreciated eggplants properly until I fell in love with Greek cooking! When cooked well, they become buttery, soft and so moreish. They work beautifully roasted and warm, grilled or baked then cooled in a salad like in this Keto Eggplant Salad.

I’d suggest using smoke almonds if they are easy to get – they add a beautiful complexity to the flavour, but this is just as delicious with normal roasted almonds or even raw almonds.

While you wouldn’t normally want to spend 40 minutes on a salad, it is mostly passive time with the eggplant baking. It’s perfect to get in the oven while you are cooking something else. I think this Keto Eggplant Salad would be perfect made into a larger batch and taken to a summer barbeque!

    With 17g of carbs in a single meal this is far from Keto, you realise that most people on Keto only have 20g carbs a day, right? Unless this was your only meal for the day you would most likely , if not definitely go over your daily carb intake.

    • Hi Danielle

      Are you familiar with how fibre and net carbs work?

      This is 7 grams of net carbs, because the ingredients are so high in fibre (which we need in our diets). You’ll see the fibre listed on the nutritional panel.
      I don’t believe in eating as low carb as possible at the sake of nutrition, and 7 grams net carbs for a substantial, filling salad is very manageable. You’ll also see it mentions to serve it with some grilled meat, meaning the total meal would be around 7 – 8 grams of carbs. Again, very easy to fit into a standard 20 – 25 grams of carbs per day.
