Sara Louise’s Keto Shawarma With Steamed Bok Choy

Tasty Chinese Chicken and Cabbage

Well this keto Shawarma with steamed Bok Choy may sound like a bit of a mouthful. Try saying it backwards but I assure you the recipe is super tasty, healthy and fun to make. Bok Choy is a vegetable, a type of Chinese cabbage; which is also perfect for a low carb stir fry to to go along side a Chinese chicken; which is another easy keto dish that is quick to put together.


For the super interested among you all; Shawarma is actually a Middle Eastern meat preparation that is based on the döner kebab of Ottoman Turkey. Originally when first made; the recipe was made of lamb or mutton.

While today’s shawarma may also be chicken, turkey, beef, or even veal. So think of this keto Shawarma with steamed Bok Choy recipe as a more exotic version of regular chicken and cabbage. However you will not be disappointed as the aroma when this cooks is amazing!
