Vegetarian keto recipes

Whether you’re a full-time vegetarian, not in the mood for meat or getting ready for Meatless Monday, we’ve got some excellent options for you and your family.

Keto doesn’t have to mean carnivore. We offer plenty of vegetarian choices, enjoyed by dedicated low-carb vegetarians and meat eaters who like to mix it up.

If you choose a so called lacto-ovo vegetarian way of eating, low carb will work like a charm, providing all the nutrients you need. Lacto-ovo means avoiding meat, poultry and fish and eating vegetables, nuts, eggs and dairy.

Check out our guide on how to follow a healthy vegetarian keto diet.

So, what vegetables are to be preferred on a keto diet? A rule of thumb is to avoid what is growing under ground and eat what grows above (read more about carbs in different vegetables). Picking what’s in season is often the best option for many reasons. It’s easier to find organically and locally grown produce and they’re often more affordable.


Vegetarian keto meals

Vegetables in vibrant colors served with eggs cooked the way you like them and a nice dollop of smooth mayo on top sounds like a winner to us. Experiment with different textures and seasonings to create your own favorite recipes.


Vegetarian sides

Indulge in all of our side dishes and combine them with your favorite meats and condiments for the perfect keto meal. Even the most skeptic will have a hard time turning down broccoli fried in butter with a sprinkle of sea salt on top.
