This recipe for low carb and Keto scallion pancakes uses cauliflower to lower the carb count to 2g net carbs per serving. It’s the perfect Chinese appetizer.
I’ve got 2 tips for you today.
One is how to make delicious low carb keto scallion pancakes, and the other is how to listen to Hamilton for free. It’s a toss up as to which one is more useful.
I was listening to the Hamilton soundtrack as I made these scallion pancakes, so I highly recommend doing both at the same time.
I found this compilation of animatics on Youtube. (video above) When you string them all together, you’ve got yourself a free way to listen to the soundtrack. The music is just incredible. Quite a way to get a history lesson.
Also incredible, are these low carb Keto scallion pancakes.
They taste like they are straight from a Chinese restaurant. But these little pancakes have only 60 calories and 2g net carb per slice, so you can afford to indulge a little. They are made of cauliflower rice, eggs, almond flour and scallions and served with a dipping sauce that is to die for.
It’s just the snack to munch on if, like Hamilton, you are young scrappy and hungry.
