Keto Swallow (Low Carb Swallow)

Happy Friday, everyone! So, I tried keto swallow for the first time and I would like to say I was surprised how they all turned out or let me just say I was surprised I like it…lol. Oh yes,  I was surprised because in one of Facebook I groups I belong to there’s an Uncle that would share low carb, asked questions about it and I would say no, thank you! I like my amala…lol.

Then, I created a Facebook group  (please join if you’re not a member yet) for my blog in April and there’s this beloved sister that shares her keto meals in the group, and I said I was going to try the”swallow” dish out. A few weeks ago, a lady gave me some vegetables and the first thing that came to my mind to prepare was keto swallow.

Truly, I made low carb swallow; cabbage swallow first, I liked it a few days later I tried carrot fufu ( someone told me carrot swallow is not keto complainant but it’s good), it was good, I tried the broccoli and I liked it too by the way all the three have similar processes.

To make low carb swallow or low carb amala or low carb fufu, you need a vegetable, psyllium husk or ground flaxseed. I used ground flaxseed, water plus any your choice of soup to eat it. In all of these “swallows”, I liked the cabbage the most and I will be making it more very often.

The carrot swallow I liked it but not as much as the cabbage because it has some sweet taste. The broccoli swallow was good too but I still favor the cabbage swallow or cabbage fufu. I would be trying other low carb swallow and I will share them with Y’all.

If you’re in Nigeria, Jumia Nigeria sells Psyllium husk.

Recipe Notes

Note:

Psyllium husk serves as a binder so you need to use it. However, someone told me she used grinded ogbono in making and it worked. I haven't try it with grinded ogbono so I can't validate that but I'm just throwing it out there if you want to try it out you can.

If you're in Nigeria, Jumia Nigeria sells Psyllium husk.

    1. Hi,
      That’s what is called in the market. I don’t know any other name for it. I saw it on jumia Nigeria website. Psyllium husk is there too.
