Enjoying Your Keto-Friendly French Fries and Ketchup

Posted by Fernando Acosta on

Are you on a keto diet but still crave comfort foods like french fries and ketchup? Fortunately, there are delicious keto-friendly recipes you can try. Let's take a closer look at the ketogenic diet, the benefits it offers, and some recipes to enjoy french fries and ketchup without breaking your diet.

The Ketogenic Diet

The keto diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet that helps to burn fat for energy instead of carbohydrates. It has been shown to help with weight loss, improve brain function, and reduce the risk of certain diseases.

Keto-Friendly French Fries

Traditional french fries are made with potatoes, which are high in carbs and not suitable for the keto diet. But don't worry, because there are plenty of delicious alternatives that will satisfy your french fry cravings.


One of the best options is to use jicama, a root vegetable that is low in carbs and high in fiber. Here's how to make keto-friendly jicama fries:

  • Peel the jicama and cut it into thin strips.
  • Toss the jicama fries with avocado oil, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  • Spread the fries out in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the fries are crispy and golden brown.

Keto-Friendly Ketchup

Most store-bought ketchup contains high amounts of added sugar, which is not keto-friendly. But making your own ketchup at home is easy and allows you to control the ingredients and sugar content. Here's a simple recipe for keto-friendly ketchup:


  • Whisk together tomato paste, water, apple cider vinegar, erythritol, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt.
  • Blend the mixture until smooth.
  • Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before using.

Enjoying Your Keto-Friendly French Fries and Ketchup

Now that you have your keto-friendly french fries and ketchup recipes, it's time to enjoy them together. Here's how to serve them up:

  • Heat up your jicama fries in the oven or air fryer until they're hot and crispy.
  • Serve the fries alongside a dish of keto-friendly ketchup for dipping.
  • Enjoy the classic combination of french fries and ketchup, without the guilt or extra carbs!

Conclusion

The keto diet doesn't have to mean giving up your favorite comfort foods. With these keto-friendly recipes for french fries and ketchup, you can satisfy your cravings and stay on track with your diet. So give them a try and enjoy the delicious taste of french fries and ketchup, the keto way!
