Are you a fan of pimento cheese but worried about its carb content? Well, you’re not alone. Many store-bought pimento cheese brands can be high in carbs, which can be frustrating for those on a low-carb diet. But fear not! We have a solution for you – a homemade low-carb pimento cheese recipe that will satisfy your cravings while keeping your carb count in check.
Creating a Low Carb Pimento Cheese
As a pimento cheese lover myself, I understand the struggle of finding a low-carb option at the grocery store. Recently, my go-to brand changed, and I was shocked to learn that it went from 0 carbs per serving to a whopping 9 carbs! That’s just unacceptable when the ingredients for making pimento cheese are naturally low in carbs. So, I took matters into my own hands and created a homemade version that is not only easy to make but also bursting with flavor.
What Exactly is Pimento Cheese?
For those unfamiliar with pimento cheese, it is a delicious spread made with freshly shredded cheddar cheese, cream cheese, pimentos, and sometimes mayo. In our version, we kick it up a notch by adding garlic and onion powders, giving it a more savory taste that complements a variety of recipes.
Using a Food Processor to Make Pimento Cheese
If you’re like me, you may have had some less-than-pleasant experiences with food processors in the past. However, I have discovered my all-time favorite food processor that has changed the game for me. It’s incredibly simple to assemble, with no twisting or puzzling required. I love it so much that I have one in my camper and another one in my house!
To get a better idea of what this amazing food processor can do, check out this unboxing video I made.
