LOW CARB BEANS
While many beans are high in carbohydrates, there are a few types that are lower in carbs and can be enjoyed in moderation as part of a low-carb diet. Here are some examples of low-carb beans:
- Black Soybeans: Black soybeans are a great low-carb option as they contain only 1 gram of net carbs per ½ cup serving. They are also high in protein and fiber, making them a filling and nutritious addition to your diet.
- Lupini Beans: Lupini beans are another low-carb bean option, containing only 2 grams of net carbs per ¼ cup serving. They are high in protein and fiber, as well as other nutrients like calcium and magnesium.
- Green Beans: While not technically a bean, green beans are a low-carb vegetable that can be a good alternative to higher carb beans. They contain only 4 grams of net carbs per 1 cup serving and are a good source of vitamins and minerals.
You can still enjoy a 3 bean salad on a keto diet with these ingredients.
- Black Soy beans - you can use canned for a quicker recipe
- Lupini beans - we use lupini beans from a jar for convienence
- Green beans - these need to be blanched before assembling the salad.
- Dressing - we use a simple salad dressing but this can be changed to your own taste.
HOW TO MAKE KETO 3 BEAN SALAD
If you are using dried black soy beans or lupini beans, you will need to soak them for 24 hours and then cook them until tender. To save time use canned beans.
Blanch the green beans
Mix the salad dressing
Add beans and chopped onion in a bowl, toss with the salad dressing
Chill, then serve.
Keep this bean salad in an sealed container in the fridge and it should last up to 4 days.
WHAT TO SERVE WITH KETO BEAN SALAD
This makes a great side salad but you could turn it into a main salad with the addition of a boiled egg, cooked tofu or cheese. Serve our keto pita bread with it.
