    Pretty in Pink! Low Carb Pasta Night with Primal Kitchen’s Pink Sauce

    When I asked my husband Ryan and his mom about what did they miss about the non-keto diet, both of them gave me the same answer –  Pizza and Pasta. Ryan’s mom is Italian, she grew up with all these delicious family Italian meals. I totally understand the Keto diet is not easy if you have to give up your favorite foods in your life. BUT! The good thing is that pizza and pasta have the keto-friendly options now. Thanks to Primal Kitchen’s pink pasta sauce, Ryan’s pasta dream just came true last night.

    Both Ryan and I work until 6pm in almost weekdays, I don’t have that much time and energy to take care of a complicated dinner. But we had last night – I would give the name of our pasta – The Pink Sausage Black Bean Pasta… It’s not a pretty name, but anyways, it is quick, delicious, and important to Ryan, it is keto-friendly.

    I used Organic Black Bean Spaghetti, Polish Sausages and Primal Kitchen’s No-Dairy Pink Primavera Sauce with a sprinkle of arugula leaves and sriracha sauce on the top. Ryan was super happy with that. Of course I felt happy too.

    Introducing this magic pink sauce, thinking pink for pasta night! Primal Kitchen No-Dairy Pink Primavera Sauce is a must for all your favorite Italian-inspired dishes. With cashew butter for creaminess, carrots for sweetness, beets for an earthy edge, and the anise flavor of fennel, this elegant sauce is full of flavorful complexity. Whole30 Approved®, Certified Paleo, and vegan, this veggie-forward, creamy pink primavera pasta sauce is made without dairy or sugar*.

    No Dairy Pink Primavera Sauce

    Add color and flavor to your next seafood pasta with pink sauce or penne pink sauce dish… without dairy! Smooth, robust, and perfectly pink, Primal Kitchen No Dairy Pink Primavera Sauce is a plant-based, vegan, Non-GMO Project Verified sauce made with high-quality ingredients like avocado oil, creamy cashew butter, apples, organic diced tomatoes, onions, and carrots, enhanced by a bevy of Italian spices. Whole30 Approved® and Certified Paleo, this primavera sauce is made without added sugar*, soy or canola oils. Enjoy over a bowl of zoodles or gluten-free penne, add creamy flavor to seafood dishes, whip up a pink sauce pizza, or craft a vegan pasta primavera with red sauce and roasted veggies.

    If you want to follow the new trend of Heart of Palm Pasta, you may be interested in this pretty pink pasta recipe. Similar to shirataki noodles, pasta made from hearts of palm are a lower carb alternative to pasta made with flour (including nut-based flours). This recipe used Palmini low-carb linguine, which contains 4 grams of carbs per serving, in our keto vegan spaghetti. These gluten-free noodles provide the texture, chew, mouthfeel, and bland flavor that allow the sauce and toppings to shine.

    The recipe paired the swirly hearts of palm noodles with Primal Kitchen vegan Pink Primavera Sauce, which is made with avocado oil; beets, tomatoes, apples to get a gorgeous fuchsia hue; and cashew butter for creaminess with no dairy. This four-ingredient keto vegan spaghetti is the perfect pantry dish to throw together in less than 10 minutes.

    Keto Vegan Spaghetti Recipe

    Ingredients

    Instructions

    • Place linguine in a colander in the sink. Drain noodles and rinse well, allowing all water to drain after rinsing.
    • Heat Pink Primavera Sauce in a pot over medium-high heat. Add drained noodles, and stir with tongs to combine the sauce and noodles.
    • Heat sauce and noodles until both are hot, about 3 minutes.
    • Chop parsley. Divide spaghetti onto 3 plates (or store extra servings in a glass container with lid in the refrigerator). Sprinkle 1 tablespoon parsley and 1 tablespoon vegan parmesan on top of each plate of spaghetti.

    There are a lot of other fun and yummy recipes on Primal Kitchen’s website or instagram. Checking out them today and make a plan for your family’s next keto meal.

    While the kids hunt for pastel-hued colored eggs, and neon-colored plastic eggs that pop open to reveal candy, stickers, or tiny toys inside, the adults usually look forward to Easter brunch or family dinners that traditionally include glazed spiral ham or rack of lamb, potato salad, crisp green beans and roasted asparagus.

    This Easter ham uses a bone-in spiral ham, which is precut for easy carving and is already cooked. Simply heat in a low oven for a couple of hours, and brush with Primal Kitchen’s sweet and savory No-Soy Island Teriyaki for an all-in-one sauce without the brown sugar, soda, or syrup used in other ham glazes. This two-ingredient Easter ham recipe provides a show-stopping centerpiece for any holiday meal.

    Easter Ham

    Ingredients

    Instructions

    • Preheat oven to 250ºF.
    • Remove packaging on the ham, and remove any plastic disk that may be on the underside of the ham bone.
    • Place ham in a shallow roasting pan, cut side down.
    • Bake ham for about 1 hour and 40 minutes (for an 8-pound ham), or 2 hours and 10 minutes (for a 10-pound ham).
    • Remove ham from oven and baste with Primal Kitchen No-Soy Island Teriyaki Sauce. Apply several coats of the teriyaki sauce to the ham. Place ham back in the oven to bake for another 20 minutes.
    • Total bake time for spiral ham: Bake ham for about 15 minutes per pound until the internal temperature reaches 140ºF (about 2 hours for an 8-pound ham, and 2 hours and 30 minutes for a 10-pound ham; these times are estimates, and your oven may differ.).
    • Remove ham from oven once the internal temperature reaches 140ºF. Spoon juices over top of the ham, and tent with aluminum foil to keep warm.
    • Let ham rest for 15 minutes before carving and serving.

    One more simple recipe here to fully complete your Easter Feast! A pop of spring color isn’t just for dying Easter Eggs! Grab a head or three of colorful cauliflower, smother in Primal Kitchen Chipotle Lime Mayo and roast to perfection for colorful spring side dish. Want even more flavor?

    • Coat the sliced cauliflower with Chipotle Lime Mayo, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
    • Place on parchment lined baking sheet.
    • Roast 40 minutes or until golden brown.

    Creamy Guacamole, Hummus with Avocado Oil, Cauliflower Bites, Loaded Game Day Nachos – These Healthy Appetizers Got Your Snacks Covered

    It’s time to whip up some mouthwatering snack recipes! Surprise your family and kids with these easy to make, delicious and healthy snacks. Enjoy the foods you love, plus soak up tons of flavor and finger-licking fun!

    Creamy Guacamole

    This two-step process makes it super easy to throw together creamy guacamole whenever the urge strikes. The key to a great guacamole is a combo of very ripe (but not over ripe) avocados and a blend of sharp garlic, salt, the tang of freshly squeezed lime juice, and the grassy taste of fresh cilantro. Stir in a cup of creamy mayonnaise — this recipe has obviously partial to Primal Kitchen’s mayo made with avocado oil—and prepare your tastebuds for the creamiest, richest guacamole you’ve ever tasted.

    Ingredients

    • 4 ripe avocados
    • 1 large clove garlic, minced
    • 2 tablespoons lime juice
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
    • 1 cup Primal Kitchen Pesto Mayo

    Hummus with Avocado Oil

    A classic dip to add flavor, contrasting texture, and more satisfaction to snacks like cut fresh vegetables, and flaxseed, rice, and other gluten-free crackers, hummus can be thrown together in a blender with pantry ingredients in five minutes or less. If you don’t have fresh lemons on hand, substitute bottled lemon juice or go without it. You may need to add a bit more water if you leave out the lemon juice to make sure the hummus has the right consistency.

    Classic hummus, which is made with chickpeas, does have a higher amount of carbs than other paleo or keto snacks (such as additive-free salami, organic full-fat cheeses, olives, nut butters, coconut oil, etc.), so pay attention to portion size if you’re watching your carbs.

    Ingredients

    • 3 cups chickpeas (drained if canned)
    • 1/4 cup Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil
    • 1/2 cup tahini
    • 1/4 cup water
    • 1/4 cup lemon juice
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 2 cloves garlic, peeled

    Instructions

    • Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Pulse three times for 2 seconds each time.
    • Continue blending on medium until desired consistency is achieved.
    • Remove hummus from the blender and spoon into a bowl.
    • Serve with cut vegetables, flackers, or gluten-free crackers.
    • Store any unused hummus in an airtight container in the refrigerator for four to five days.

    Teriyaki Cauliflower Bites

    Tender on the inside, toasty brown on the outside with a bit of coarse texture from the light dusting of almond flour, this teriyaki cauliflower bites provide the perfect pop-in-your-mouth snack or vegan side dish. This easy two-step keto-vegan breading process includes a dunk in the sweet, savory, tangy, umami Island Teriyaki Sauce before a toss in salted almond flour—then it’s into a hot oven to bake for about 30 minutes. Whole30, vegan, paleo, and keto appetizers don’t get much easier than this; serve with the vegan or regular Ranch dressing to add a creamy, herby, ready-made sauce.

    Instructions

    • Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line two baking sheets with silicone mats or metal racks.
    • Wash cauliflower and dry. Remove any leaves and cut away the stem. Cut the cauliflower into florets.
    • Mix almond flour and salt together in a large bowl. Pour the Island Teriyaki Sauce into a separate large bowl.
    • Add the cauliflower florets (in batches, if necessary) to the bowl with the Island Teriyaki Sauce. Use tongs to toss and coat well.
    • Use tongs to place sauce-covered cauliflower florets into the bowl with almond flour. Toss well to coat.
    • Place the lightly breaded cauliflower bites onto the baking sheets in one single layer.
    • Bake for 25–30 minutes, or until tender and browned.
    • When done, transfer the cauliflower bites to a large plate and serve with Primal Kitchen Vegan Ranch for dipping, if desired.
