Low-carb and keto
When planning a buffet, it’s a good idea to pick dishes that compliment each other but with a diversity so there’s something for everyone. It’s a great idea to have vegetarian, dairy-free and nut-free options.
A simple, yet elegant, option that require very little cooking is putting together a cheese platter with some seed crackers on the side, butter, cold cuts, fresh herbs, olives and vegetables with dips.
If you want to finish with a dessert or sweet treat, we recommend a few pieces of good quality dark chocolate with a high percentage of cocoa solids or filling a beautiful plate with fresh berries and mint served with home made whipped cream.
And for drinks? Fill up your best pitchers with flavored water or iced tea. They are great thirst quenchers and can serve as beautiful table decorations at the same time. Check out our visual guides to learn more about carbs in different beverages.
Below you’ll find our suggestions for a wonderful low-carb buffet. What do you like to serve when feeding a crowd?
Pies are great buffet items. Make up a few batches of the crust and let you imagination do the work when it comes to filling them. If you’re looking for a vegetarian alternative we suggest our avocado pie, it’s delicious.
Add a salad to your buffet table for extra freshness. If you haven’t tried our zucchini salad we strongly suggest you do so.
