Low-Carb Sauerkraut Casserole (Recipe Without Potatoes)


Low-Carb Sauerkraut Casserole (Recipe Without Potatoes)

Do you love European dishes? Then this recipe is for you.

I think a lot of Europeans  loves this. A delicious sauerkraut oven dish.

But what if you are diabetic and potatoes are not recommended? Then this recipe - and all other casseroles - are forbidden.

Fortunately, I have a solution for this so that you can continue to enjoy your delicious casseroles.


This recipe does not contain potatoes. Potatoes are not wise for diabetics or when you want to lose weight. But an oven dish without potatoes is of course not exactly tasty.

The solution:

Replace the potatoes with a variant that is more carbohydrate-friendly.

In this recipe I therefore chose oxheart cabbage, but you can also choose regular cabbage. This not only gives you much less carbohydrates, but also much more fiber. Oxheart cabbage is a healthy vegetable that you can never eat too much of.

In addition to sauerkraut and cabbage, it also contains:

  • Sausages
  • Garlic
  • Several herbs

This not only gives you a healthy but also a tasty recipe.

Are you more of a fan of minced meat? Then you can of course always replace the sausages with minced beef and mix that with the dish.

This low-carb sauerkraut dish is packed with fiber, protein and healthy fats.
