With protein being a significant part of the keto diet, it’s easy to assume that it’s best suitable for meat-eaters. But the diet is something that even vegetarians can take part in by simply tweaking their diet plan. These vegetarian keto recipes have an abundance of offerings, such as this flavorful paneer masala that you can enjoy throughout the week.
Are you a vegetarian looking for keto food inspiration? Or perhaps you are looking for ways to cut down on your meat consumption. Whatever the reason might be, you can easily incorporate a vegetarian diet with the help of exciting new keto recipes. If you are new to the Keto Diet, check out our blog post, Keto Diet Plan and Advice for Beginners.
1. MEDITERRANEAN CABBAGE STEAK WITH PESTO FROM INSPECTOR GORGEOUS
Steak is a popular meat choice amongst keto dieters. But did you know that you can swap it for well-seasoned cabbage and get a different texture by baking it in an oven? Play around with ingredients like pesto, tomatoes, and artichokes to get your desired taste.
2. BROCCOLI CHEESE SOUP FROM CURBING CARBS
Traditional broccoli soup is often carb-loaded thanks to the flour used to prepare it, but this keto recipe is an excellent choice if you’re really looking to keep your carb intake low. You will only use ten recipes – including cheese, broccoli, and broth, making it an easy meal that will be ready in only 15 minutes.
3. BLACK BEAN CAKE WITH AVOCADO CREAM FROM THE DINNER MOM
Marjory’s bean cake is a keto meal that will only take you 30 minutes to make. Her vegetarian keto recipe includes breadcrumbs made from whole wheat, which is not exactly keto-friendly. However, you can exclude the breadcrumbs or swap it for almond flour.
4. COCONUT FLOUR PIZZA FROM SWEET AS HONEY
Enjoy this four-ingredient keto pizza made with coconut flour without feeling guilty for indulging. The dish is one of many easy keto meals that will give you energy to power through the day. The pizza is vegan-friendly, having no dairy products, but if you’re looking for that extra punch, you add any cheese of your choice.
5. CAULIFLOWER RICE RISOTTO FROM THAT LOW CARB LIFE
Cauliflower is another versatile vegetable that can be cooked in different ways. As you mix it with ingredients like sauteed shallots and garlic butter, you will get a soft creamy texture that resembles a traditional risotto. Top this thick low-carb meal with fresh parsley.
6. GARLIC AND HERB GRILLED EGGPLANT FROM EVERY LAST BITE
Sprinkle lemon and herb (or any other condiment of your choice) on the eggplants, and throw them on the grill for 12 minutes to get a crunchy yet soft side dish. The best thing about this keto recipe is that it’s dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, and nut-free.
7. ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH PECANS AND GORGONZOLA FROM KALYN’S KITCHEN
This Brussels sprouts recipe is a must for any vegetarian out there. It’s a light yet filling gluten-free keto meal that you can share with family and friends. Unfortunately, the dish isn’t suitable for those suffering from nut allergies. But if you really want to have a go, exclude the pecans.
8. GRILLED HALLOUMI SALAD FROM TASTEAHOLICS
Halloumi is the perfect grilling cheese as it doesn’t melt all the way through when you grill it. Spice up your usual salad by adding a few bites of it, and throw in some chopped walnuts for added flavour. With a 15-minute prep time, it’s a great lunch option if you’re tight on time.
9. CREAMY ZUCCHINI NOODLES STEP AWAY FROM THE CARBS
Zucchini noodles – also known as zoodles – are a healthier yet delicious substitute for spaghetti. Using a spiralizer, you’ll make keto pasta noodles that are low on carb yet will satisfy your taste buds. But the best thing about this gluten-free dish is perhaps that it’s saturated in a flavourful creamy sauce that you’ll love.
10. SPICY INDIAN STYLE MASALA FRITTATA FROM ARCHANA’S KITCHEN
Archana’s version of a classic frittata is packed with flavour and pays homage to Indian cuisine. The omelette takes just 10 minutes to prepare and is a dish that you can enjoy on its own or with a side of keto bread.
