When you’re adopting a keto or low-carb lifestyle, it often means saying goodbye to some of your most cherished comfort foods, especially in the winter.

Having Unbuns or Unbaguettes on hand can make it easy to quickly whip up a warm wintery meal, that is both comforting and healthy. We love the simplicity of a perfectly crafted grilled cheese and classic tomato soup.

  • 8-10 cloves of peeled garlic, smashed
  • 4 tablespoons of olive oil
