Cheers to a Sparking New Beginning – A Keto Friendly Twist on the Traditional Lobster Bisque in a Dutch Oven Pot!

Posted by Daisy Sun on

Looking to start the new year right with a healthy diet without sacrificing your favorite dishes? Look no further, as some may know, traditionally, Lobster Bisque is packed full of carbs and calories. However, this recipe will deliver a delicious Lobster Bisque without all the hidden calories.

A Surprising Added Health Benefit

Dismissive to most, the material of the pots and pans which food is cooked in can be either an added benefit or disadvantageous to your health. Due to material, and its ability to conduct heat, many pots and pans do not heat evenly, resulting in food cooked unevenly. Overcooked or burned food may contain various harmful chemicals and compounds that can have an adverse impact on your health and increase risks of cancer and certain chronic conditions. To prevent this, it is important to use a material that can heat evenly and prevent hot spots that can cause food to burn. A material known for its ability to heat evenly and retain heat is one that is used in RJ Legend’s 1.9Q Dutch Oven Pot – cast iron. A cast iron pot is a wonderful, intentionally healthy choice for anyone looking to make healthier choices and be able to enjoy delicious and nutritious meals without worrying about the harmful effects of overcooked or burned meals. With 3 enameled layers, this Dutch oven pot also features a natural non-stick quality.

A refreshingly healthy twist on the cult classic Lobster Bisque made in this Dutch Oven Pot will have everyone asking you for the recipe. Sitting beautifully at 8 g of carbs per serving, this recipe is perfect for anyone on a Keto diet or looking to lower their carb intake!

Instructions:

  2. In olive oil, cook your onion in the pot, then add garlic and cook until the bottom of the pot begins to blacken a little and crust at the bottom.
  3. To deglaze the pot, add in your white wine, then toss in your celery and carrots.
