Low Carb Bobotie

It's time again for a tasty and healthy low-carb main course! This time we made low-carb bobotie. Bobotie is a dish from South Africa that consists of minced meat, egg, green beans and various herbs.

In the Netherlands, most people know the dish from the pack of Knorr world dishes. We used Knorr's dish as inspiration for our low-carb version! Making low-carb bobotie Bobotie is a meat dish with curry as the main seasoning.

The basis is often the same, namely minced meat, egg and milk. Bobotie is often baked in the oven and served with rice and raisins. We have chosen to replace the rice with cauliflower rice and omit the raisins. As a result, a serving contains only 13.7 g of carbohydrates.

The difference in taste is almost impossible to taste! The cauliflower rice is an addition and gives the dish a fresh taste that combines well with the rich curry flavour.

Tips! With this recipe you can make 2 large portions or 3 small portions of bobotie. You can add more or less spices to taste. Leftovers can be kept in the fridge for up to 2 days and reheated in the microwave or oven. I hope you like it! Check out our other dinner recipes for more inspiration.
