Keeping vegan and keto may seem challenging, but there are plenty of high-fat, protein- and nutrient-rich options that offer the best of both worlds. From simple tofu stir-fries to entertaining-worthy cauliflower steaks, this list of plant-based keto recipes has you covered for dinner options every day of the week.
Cauliflower Steaks with Lemon Salsa Verde
Give cauliflower the steak treatment and make it the star of the show. This elegant keto dinner feels hearty while remaining healthy and bright thanks to a generous amount of vegetables and zesty lemon.
Zucchini Noodles with Spinach Pesto
Walnuts and greens – hold the parmesan – are blended together for a healthier, vegan and keto pesto for pasta. Of course, in this recipe, the pasta is low-carb zucchini noodles. Top your bowl with baked tofu cubes for a little extra protein.
Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Kale and Parm
Satisfy pasta cravings while keeping vegan and keto by turning to low-carb spaghetti squash. Kale and parm (use a vegan version or nutritional yeast) make this a “meaty” meatless meal with plenty of flavour.
Vegan Sunflower Seed Tuna Salad
Sunflower seeds are rich in healthy fat, protein and fibre, making them the ultimate faux-tuna salad sandwich filling. To make this keto, swap the wheat wrap with lettuce or radicchio cups.
Vegetarian Cauliflower Fried Rice
Sesame oil, soy sauce, shiitake mushrooms and ginger flavour cauliflower rice for a healthier, keto, at-home take of the take-out classic. Make this dish fully vegan by using crumbled firm tofu in place of the eggs.
Vegan Tofu and Spinach Scramble
Serve up this one-pan meal, complete with protein and vegetables, for something a little different for dinner tonight. If you have any keto wraps on hand, turn the scramble into breakfast-for-dinner burritos.
