Combining keto pesto with cream is a no-brainer and it works particularly well with my Celery Leaf pesto, which is naturally really peppery and a little spicy. Who knew celery leaves could do that? Not me, that’s for sure!
Ingredients for Keto Vegetable Bake with Creamy Pesto
You will need:
- parmesan cheese
- Fresh basil or celery leaves
The vegetables I chose for this dish worked really well with the pesto so give it a shot! This could definitely be a meal on its own, or makes a hearty side dish to a steak, salmon or chicken.
Substitutions and Ingredient tips
You can use other vegetables as you please but already remember to check out the NET carb count. There’s a few vegetables that I sometimes forget can be higher in carb like carrot and capsicum. Broccoli is a must though, it goes so tender and almost nutty in flavour when roasted.
