Keto Masala Fries
A delicious 0 Net Carb snack
Who doesn't love fries? Well in the keto / low carb journey, the one thing that I missed the most where fries, But there is absolutely nothing about regular fries that are even REMOTELY keto. I have tried the various veggie fries out there, but somehow, they always lacked that extra crunch and didn't really satisfy any cravings.
The other day I just happened to find some Halloumi Cheese at the store. I have never really used this cheese before, but was excited to try it! I just decided to coat it with some spices and almond flour and just have as a snack... Well guess what! They tasted like FRIES! And the BEST PART... each serving is 'zero' net carb!
