If you're often shocked by the sheer volume of sugar and salt in store bought sauces, this Keto version of the famous Thai Sweet Chili Sauce is for you. It will take the guesswork out knowing what's in your food and ensure that you don't have to question why something is so delicious – because you made it! This sugar-free recipe is suitable for a ketogenic (low-carb) diet as it has no sugar, and few ingredients overall. Simply throw all your ingredients into your Thermomix and blend until the consistence is as desired. Magic.
Commercial tomato sauces and passata tend to have surprisingly high added sugars – primarily to balance the taste of often quite acidic tomatoes, as well as preserving the sauce for a longer shelf life. Making your own sauces, be they for pasta, pizza or anything else is a much healthier, tasty alternative to buying in-store. Serendipitously, we have a Thermomix recipe for such a sauce, which requires little more than a tin of tomatoes and some dried herbs, almost all of which you will have in your pantry. So throw this together in mere minutes for a healthy and flavorsome alternative.
This lively Enchilada Sauce is one that will spice up Mexican night. It requires a few special ingredients like xanthan gum and dried Guajillo chilies – but they're worth hunting down in advance. If you don't have the time nor the inclination to seek them out, simply substitute for alternative thickening agents (gelatine) or any chili of your choice. We love Guajillo for their unique sweet and smoky flavor, but you can use more accessible ones like chipotles in adobo or anchos. However you make it, this low-carb, high flavor Keto sauce will surely impress.
