32 Keto Meatless Monday Recipes (For Any Day Of The Week) https://ketosummit.com/keto-meatless-monday-recipes

People who are not familiar with Keto can sometimes assume it’s a diet for carnivores only. Sure, many kinds of meats are great for a Ketogenic diet, but there is definitely room for vegetables on the menu.

There are various reasons you may want to include more vegetarian recipes in your meal rotation. Maybe you’d like to eat a bit lighter on certain days, perhaps you’re having vegetarian dinner guests, or there are plenty of veggies in season and you’d like to make the most of them.

Personally, I just simply love all the recipes included on this list – that’s a good enough reason for me to make my Mondays meatless!

Meatless Does Not Mean Salads Only

These days there are plenty of delicious vegetarian recipes available for everyone, but when it comes to being on Keto, it gets harder to find meals that won’t kick you out of ketosis. Don’t worry – a mixed green salad is not the only thing you can eat!

There are several salad recipes here that you’re going to want to make over and over again, but we’ve also included yummy breakfasts, hearty dinners, and wonderful soups – all meat-free.

Don’t know where to start? I would highly recommend the blueberry breakfast bars, the Buddha bowl, some delicious vegetarian pizza – and, of course, pancakes!

Keto vegetarian cooking doesn’t have to be hard! Check out how easy it is to put together your daily veggie meals.

Here are just a few of the Keto Meatless Monday we’ve included:

This easy Keto breakfast dish takes its inspiration from the ‘everything’ seasoning which has become really popular recently. If you don’t live in the US or know about this, it is a savory mix of flavors for seasoning cooked meats and bread, and in this recipe, it is replicated using garlic and onion. Partnered with the creamy and smooth avocado, this dish makes the perfect healthy start to your day!

A chocolate brownie muffin for breakfast on a Keto diet? Really? Well, yes! This is such a great recipe that has turned this once forbidden muffin into a Keto cake that you can enjoy for breakfast now and then. I like to keep these for special days like birthdays and anniversaries as they are a bit of a treat. Just follow this great recipe and you too can enjoy muffins for brekkie!

10-Minute Keto Toast

If you are like me and really miss bread, why not try this quick and easy recipe for low carb and gluten free bread to use for toast, breadcrumb coatings or French toast – the list is endless! This is made in the microwave in a mug which gives you perfect round slices to enjoy with any meal and can also help you to control portion sizes since this is easy to overeat!

Keto Blueberry Breakfast Bars

Keto Blueberry Breakfast Bars

Ingredients: chia seeds, water, almond flour, coconut flour, coconut oil, coconut flakes, almonds, blueberries, erythritol, lemon juice, vanilla extract.

If you are one of those people who is always short on time in the morning and tend to grab and go when it comes to breakfast, you will definitely find these Keto bars really handy! They are fruity and crunchy and packed with healthy fats, and will keep you going right through the morning. The best bit is that they are really portable so you can pack one in your lunchbox for that afternoon slump.

These light and fluffy pancakes are made with almond flour, which is a good source of healthy fats. These little beauties are low in carbs and sugar and are so quick and easy to make they would even be great for the busiest folks!

Keto Coconut Pancakes

Keto Coconut Pancakes

Ingredients: eggs, coconut flour, coconut milk, vanilla extract, baking soda, stevia, coconut oil, ghee.

If you need a new idea for a low carb Keto-friendly breakfast, then look no further! You can try these delicious coconut pancakes which are so easy to make that even novice cooks will succeed. These pretty pancakes are light in texture, but because coconut flour absorbs a lot of liquid, you might find them a bit dry on their own, so feel free to drizzle them with ghee, or serve them with some fresh berries.

Keto Almond Flour Waffles

– Keto Summit

Keto Almond Flour Waffles

Ingredients: almond flour, eggs, ghee, coconut milk, baking powder, vanilla extract, erythritol, berries.

If you are lucky enough to own a waffle maker but thought you would never use it now you are eating Keto, then here is the answer! These are made with almond flour which is quite filling and will help keep you going until lunch. If you like, you can serve these with a few fresh berries or spread them with a nut butter of your choice for a really nice savory option.

Keto Green Eggs and Ham Muffins

– Keto Summit

Keto Green Eggs and Ham Muffins

Ingredients: broccoli, eggs, ham, onion, coconut milk (from the can), salt, pepper, baking powder.

When I first saw this recipe, I was surprised to see the muffins had broccoli in, but after I tried one I was convinced – it works! Paired with the ham, the broccoli makes the muffin green and gives it a wonderful savory flavor. These can be eaten for breakfast, or if you know you have a really busy day, you can take one with you for a mid-afternoon hunger buster!

Matcha Keto Smoothie Bowl

– Keto Summit

Matcha Keto Smoothie Bowl

Ingredients: matcha powder, coconut yogurt, chia seeds, goji berries, coconut flakes, cacao nibs.

This dish is a wonderful mixture of colors and flavors, with the added benefit of the smooth yogurt base to set it all off. The seeds and berries give a lovely range of textures and are super-foods, so are packed with health-boosting anti-oxidants and can even improve your concentration. Serve this for a nourishing Keto breakfast or a lunch option.

Keto Meatless Monday Salads

Keto Kale Blueberry Salad

– Keto Summit

Keto Kale Blueberry Salad

Ingredients: kale, blueberries, almonds, red onion, parsley, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper.

Kale has so many more nutrients than other salad leaves, so this delicious salad could be a good way to increase your intake. Teamed with the juicy blueberries, the crunchy kale, and sweet red onion, this salad could be a wonderful light low carb lunch option or a side salad for cooked meats or fish. If you use the light dressing suggested here you won’t mask the flavors of the other ingredients.

Keto Waldorf Salad

– Keto Summit

Keto Waldorf Salad

Ingredients: salad leaves of your choice, paleo mayo, salt, black pepper, Granny Smith apple (or other green apples), celery stalks, grapes, walnuts.

Waldorf salad is traditionally made with a creamy dressing and in this recipe, it comes from the keto mayo, which keeps the dressing dairy free. Aside from the lettuce, this also has the fresh flavors of apple and celery, making this a lovely light and delicious salad to enjoy for lunch on a summer day, or as an appetizer for a dinner party. This is a simple keto recipe but it gives you a wonderfully tasty dish.

Keto Buddha Bowl

– Keto Summit

Keto Buddha Bowl

Ingredients: avocado, spinach, broccolini, cauliflower, carrots, almond butter, avocado oil, salt, pepper, cilantro.

Buddha bowls are easily adapted to the keto way of eating and can be helpful in maintaining ketosis or supporting weight loss. This recipe gives you a bowl of vibrant colors and such a great variety of textures that it looks good as well as tasting good. Thanks to the cauliflower rice, this buddha bowl is filling and nutritious but won’t affect your blood sugars or leave you feeling bloated.

Raspberry Arugula Salad

– Paleo Flourish

Raspberry Arugula Salad

Ingredients: arugula, baby spinach, cucumber, parsley or cilantro leaves, olives, salt, olive oil, lemon juice, raspberries.

The colors in this salad are amazing as the raspberries are vibrant and so appealing. This dish makes a lovely side to serve with other meals, or try serving it on its own for a tasty Paleo lunch. This is a versatile recipe too – if you don’t like the salad greens mentioned here, just change them for ones you prefer, and if you can’t find raspberries you can use other fruit like blueberries or strawberries. You could also try making cucumber ribbons instead of chopping it.

Egg Salad Stuffed Avocados

– Paleo Flourish

Egg Salad Stuffed Avocados

Ingredients: avocados, eggs, pickles, parsley, Paleo mayo, mustard, salt, pepper.

This salad is full of taste and healthy fats from the avocado and would make a very satisfying lunch that is quite simple to make. It is also an adaptable recipe as you can cook the eggs to your liking, add in any herbs you like and if you don’t like pickles you can use cucumber. This would also be a great dish to have for breakfast as the salad will give you all you need to keep you going through the morning.

Paleo Salad

– Paleo Flourish

Paleo Salad

Ingredients: eggs, avocado, cherry tomatoes (omit), blueberries, romaine lettuce, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper.

Here is a basic recipe that explains how to combine ingredients to make a delicious salad. This dish makes a great lunch, a super side, or you can add in some cooked chicken or tuna to turn it into a full meal. The trick to turning simple fruit and veggies into a stunning salad is the dressing, which can transform it into an impressive meal, suitable for the Paleo diet.

Herbed & Poached Radish Salad

– Meatified

Ingredients: radishes, extra virgin olive oil, chicken or vegetable broth, sea salt, fresh lemon juice, white wine vinegar, avocado oil, celery, fresh chives, parsley, capers, lemon zest, pepper.

Radishes are one of those vegetables that we often see as a garnish, brightening up a boring green salad or just to make the plate look pretty. However, once they are cooked, they have a surprisingly fresh flavor and a wonderfully juicy texture and make a great side or main course, contrasting well with the salty capers. If you leave this dish to cool, the flavors will meld even more.

Keto Meatless Monday Dinners

Easy Keto Vegetable Ratatouille

– Keto Summit

Easy Keto Vegetable Ratatouille

Ingredients: eggplant, zucchinis, bell peppers, tomatoes, onion, fresh basil leaves, garlic, fresh thyme leaves, olive oil, salt, pepper.

With the lovely tastes of garlic and thyme, this vegetable dish can be a fantastic Keto side with all sorts of meats or a main for non-meat eaters. The ratatouille is colorful and full of flavor and can either be cooked on the stovetop or in the oven. This dish is really low in carbs and calories and can be a tasty way to enjoy your daily intake of vegetables.

Vegetarian Keto Pizza

– Keto Summit

Vegetarian Keto Pizza

Ingredients: almond flour, flax meal, nutritional yeast, olive oil, egg, salt, pepper, Keto pizza sauce, cashew butter, nutritional yeast, basil leaves.

If you thought that pizza would be frowned on once you started eating keto then think again! With a little bit of planning, you can make a keto-friendly base and a sauce that is packed with the flavors we expect. If you use the nutritional yeast you will even get a bit of cheese flavor, making it even more like the real thing! This recipe is low carb, low calorie, and vegetarian.

Keto Cauliflower Pizza

– Keto Summit

Keto Cauliflower Pizza

Ingredients: cauliflower, almond flour, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, olive oil, egg, tomato, pepperoni (omit), arugula.

Isn’t cauliflower amazing? You can use it like rice, a vegetable on its own, or use it to make a delicious pizza base that avoids all the gluten and carbs that you find in regular pizza bases. This one even cuts like a proper pizza, so even if you are on a diet, you don’t have to miss out. Why not try different toppings too like mushrooms and caramelized red onion!

Cheesy Keto Zucchini Soup

– Keto Summit

Cheesy Keto Zucchini Soup

Ingredients: coconut oil, onion, zucchinis, bone broth, nutritional yeast, ground black pepper, coconut cream, parsley.

Soup is one of those comforting dishes that we all love on a chilly day to warm us, but it can also make a delicious low carb lunchtime bowlful or even enjoyed as an appetizer at dinnertime. The nutritional yeast adds that subtle hint of cheese to complement the zucchini and this is a hearty soup that will fill you up and get rid of the hunger pangs right away!

Keto Broccoli Soup

– Keto Summit

Keto Broccoli Soup

Ingredients: broccoli, chicken broth, pine nuts, salt, ground black pepper, coconut cream.

Broccoli is a fantastic source of vitamins and antioxidants, but it can be one of those veggies the family turns their noses up at, so turning it into a homemade soup could be the answer. The broccoli retains its vivid green color, so this would be a great appetizer to serve for St. Patrick’s Day, but to be honest, we enjoy it all year round! Sprinkle with pine nuts for an added crunch before serving.

Spring Soup with Poached Egg

– Paleo Flourish

Spring Soup with Poached Egg

Ingredients: eggs, chicken broth, romaine lettuce, salt.

This soup is reminiscent of Asian soups and makes the perfect choice for a light and tasty breakfast, lunch or dinner! If you are not sure about soup at breakfast time then we suggest you try this one as it has a freshness and flavor that can set you up for the morning. If you prefer, you could add in some spices or herbs, but it is delicious as it is, and the egg is a great source of protein.

Paleo Broccoli Soup

– Paleo Flourish

Paleo Broccoli Soup

Ingredients: broccoli, chicken broth, mixed seeds, coconut cream, salt, ground black pepper.

If you have picky eaters in your family and you find it difficult to get them to eat vegetables, a lovely bowl of homemade soup is a really useful way to get the goodness into them without them noticing! Broccoli is a great source of iron and vitamin C, which can help to ward off some illnesses, so it is one of the best veggies to introduce into your diet. It also tastes great!

Simple Egg Drop Soup

– Paleo Flourish

Simple Egg Drop Soup

Ingredients: bone broth, swiss chard, eggs, coconut aminos, ginger, salt, pepper.

This is such a quick recipe to make that it would be perfect for lunch on the run. Simply heat up the bone broth, trickle in the eggs and add the vegetables, cook for a few minutes and you are good to go! This is a really tasty way to get your protein intake, and you can vary the flavor of the soup by using different types of broth – my favorite is to use chicken broth and add a little garlic.

No-Cook Refreshing Mint Avocado Chilled Soup

– Paleo Flourish

No-Cook Refreshing Mint Avocado Chilled Soup

Ingredients: avocado, romaine lettuce leaves, coconut milk, lime juice, fresh mint leaves, salt.

This soup would make the perfect appetizer for a summertime meal as it is chilled, yet packed with fresh flavors from the lime and mint. The avocado gives the soup a creamy consistency and the lime also helps to stop the avocado from oxidizing and turning brown. This is also a great recipe for a light Paleo lunch if you are short on time as it only takes 5 minutes to prepare.

Farmers Market Winter Soup

– The Nourished Caveman

Ingredients: ghee, garlic cloves, onion, celery, carrots (omit), leeks, butternut squash, kale, sea salt, red pepper flakes, ground black pepper.

If you are used to making homemade soup you will probably find you stick to the same recipes all the time, but using your local farmer’s market is a great way to introduce different veggies into your Keto diet. You can often find bargains there too, which can help if you are cooking on a budget. This delicious winter soup can be frozen, and if your kids don’t ‘do’ veggies, try blending it before serving.

Zucchini Noodles Salad with Parmesan & Walnuts (Contains Dairy)

– I Breathe I’m Hungry

Ingredients: zucchini noodles, radicchio, parsley, parmesan cheese, walnuts, avocado oil, fresh lemon juice, garlic, granulated sugar substitute (swerve), kosher salt, pepper.

Walnuts are really good for you as they have a high level of healthy fats and fatty acids, so this meal is super-healthy! They also add a whole new dimension to the texture of salads, so they don’t have to be boring. The vinaigrette used here gives the whole dish a light and fresh taste and can be prepared in advance if you are going to be short of time on the day.

Crustless Broccoli Cheddar Quiche (Contains Dairy)

– Low Carb Yum

Ingredients: eggs, heavy cream, broccoli florets, cheddar cheese, salt, onion powder, garlic powder, ground black pepper.

Broccoli goes so well with cheese in soups and quiches or as a side with cheese sauce, so this quiche is bound to be tasty! It is filling and nutritious as well as tasting amazing, and it is really low in carbohydrates. With its golden color, it would even make a lovely contribution to a potluck. This recipe does use a lot of dairies, so we recommend you only make this quiche occasionally.

Strawberry Balsamic Zoodle Salad (Contains Dairy)

– Wicked Stuffed

Ingredients: zucchini noodles, strawberries, goat cheese, pistachios, balsamic vinegar, avocado oil, garlic, salt, black pepper.

Zucchini is one of those veggies that doesn’t have much flavor on its own, but it easily takes on the flavor of other ingredients like the garlic and balsamic vinegar. In this lovely summery low carb salad, the balsamic also boosts the flavor of the strawberries. If you don’t tolerate dairy, just omit the goat’s cheese, but the flavor won’t be as strong.

Low Carb Cauliflower and Broccoli Cheese Soup (Contains Dairy)

– Peace, Love and Low Carb

Ingredients: butter, onion, garlic, sea salt, black pepper, cauliflower, broccoli, leek, chicken stock, heavy cream, sharp cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese.

In the UK, broccoli and cheese soup is traditionally made using blue cheese like Stilton, but I do not like the metallic flavor you get, so this recipe has become my go-to instead! The soup has a rich and velvety texture, the flavors of the earthy broccoli and leeks, and the whole dish is finished off with the slight sweetness from the caramelized onions. If you prefer a smoother soup just use a hand blender to get the consistency you like.

Cold Sesame Cucumber Noodle Salad

– Ketogasm

Ingredients: cucumbers, salt, sesame oil, rice vinegar, sesame seeds.

Although zucchini is normally the way to turn for a Keto pasta alternative, cucumber noodles can also be used in salads like this one to be served as a side or as a main. The smooth cucumber is complemented here by the crunchy sesame seeds, giving you a good mix of textures. Cucumber is really low in carbs and calories, and a salad like this is a healthy addition to a weight loss plan as it can fill you up without adding many calories to your intake.

Creamy Paleo Cauliflower Casserole

Ingredients: cauliflower, onion, ghee, button mushrooms, mayonnaise, full-fat coconut milk, Herbamare seasoning salt, dijon mustard, fresh dill, fresh chives, Inca Plantain Chips (omit), olive oil.

This is a really clever recipe for cauliflower casserole with a creamy, but dairy-free sauce that you can use as a side with roast meats, but as it has sliced mushrooms in it, this would make a satisfying main course. The topping is made with crushed plantain chips, adding a bit of crunch to go with the creamy cauliflower. This casserole even goes down well with the kids!
