This is an easy slow cooker dish that goes well with many side dishes such as spiralized zucchini noodles or roasted low carb vegetables. Make a double batch and freeze in individual portions for lunches or a quick grab and go meal that you just have to reheat.
We don’t eat beans very often as they tend to be a little high in carbs but this recipe as a whole is only 2g carbs per serving and a power house of protein at 32g. This would make a great post work out meal or a great meal for an active day.
If you forget to start the crock pot in the morning or just don’t have the time this dish can also be cooked in a pressure cooker. I admit that the slow cooker process produces a richer flavour but opting for the pressure cooker is a viable option and super quick!
Hello and thanks for popping by!
My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking.
We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle.
Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen.
