A few months ago, I fell in love with tapas. Or more specifically - tapas restaurants, which there are an abundance of where I live. The plates are small, so you get to taste a lot of different foods. It's social, because you share. What's not to love about it?
Even though I love the tapas restaurants, their food isn't very healthy. But that doesn't matter. I can make my own! If you want to serve some healthier tapas for your family or friends, take your pick from these 10 Low-Carb Tapas...
1. Marinated Olives with Citrus and Herbs
It's not a tapas party without olives! These marinated olives are super easy to make.
2. Spanakopita Meatballs with Tzatziki
These delicious meatballs are great for sharing.
3. Marinated Eggplants and Tomatoes
Take your vegetables to the next level by marinating them! Marinating is not just for meat, you know.
4. Butter and Wine Roasted Mushrooms
Delicious food is ridiculously easy to make. These mushrooms are the perfect example.
5. Bacon-Wrapped Sriracha Lime Chicken
Bacon? Chicken? Sriracha?! Yes, please.
6. Grilled Apricots with Brie, Prosciutto, and Honey
Hmmm...my mouth is watering right now...
7. Smoked Salmon Rosti
This remains one of my favorite recipes, and for good reason - it's absolutely delicious!
8. Beef, Fig, and Red Onion Balsamic Skewers
You'll love this interesting flavor combination!
9. Caramelized Onion & Bacon Compote on Sweet Potato Crostini
I think this one pretty much speaks for itself...
10. Chorizo in Red Wine
Another one of my favorites at tapas restaurants. You can't go wrong with chorizo!

Just discovered your Website, as I was looking for "keto" tapas recipes. I'm trying one more time to please my "keto" guests, but it is very hard. Those are the same people who used to eat like there was no tomorrow and for over a year now they have a theory that the only right way to eat is the keto way. They calculate everything, except for the wine that they drink in large amounts! And don't even think to serve dried or fresh fruits or even vegetables (except for the ones that are allowed).
I will try the chorizo in red wine as it looks delicious.
If my keto cooking doesn't work this time, I am not going to try to please those guests again.
A funny thing is happening: at the same party, I will be trying to serve a few "vegan gluten-free" tapas as well!
I love challenges!

These are far from low carb!
There are Carbs in fruites, portatoes etc.
Hi Micheal. Yes, fruits and vegetables contain carbs. There are good carbs and bad carbs. We do not use any processed and refined carbs in our recipes (the bad kind). But since there is such a wide difference in what people consider low carb, we are currently rebranding as a "whole food" blog to avoid getting constant negative feedback for difference of opinion.
No such thing as a good or bad carb you Beavis. A carb is a carb. Please tell me you are not giving people real advice. If you eat LC, ANY carb is counted.
Hey Jim "Butthead" (since we're in the spirit of calling names haha). Nowhere do we claim to be medical professionals giving nutritional advice. We are just regular people cooking up recipes at home and sharing it for fun! BUT maybe just do a little extra research. Not all carbs are created equal. A close family member of mine has type-1 diabetes and eating a piece of bread compared to eating beans or a potato with the exact same carb level does two very different things to their body and the insulin spikes it creates. But of course, everyone's body reacts different and if you don't like the recipes we share, don't use them.
This recipe looks amazing. Thank you. It's sad that I can't even go on a recipe site and not get the cultural " hostility" comments. Good on you for being bigger person. And "butthead" is hilarious
Agreed, brought to you by food geniuses!
