32 Keto Meatless Recipes To Make Meat-Lovers Swoon

Keto Vegetarian Main Dishes

Keto Cauliflower Pizza

– Keto Summit

Keto Cauliflower Pizza #keto

Ingredients: cauliflower, almond flour, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, olive oil, egg.

Isn’t cauliflower amazing? You can use it as 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!

Easy Paleo Spaghetti Recipe with Tomato Sauce

– Paleo Flourish

32 Keto Meatless Recipes To Make Meat-Lovers Swoon

Ingredients: onion, diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning, bell pepper, zucchini, garlic, basil, olive oil, salt, pepper.

Have you ever been in the position of having to rustle up a quick but delicious lunch when someone drops in unexpectedly? Especially challenging if the guest is vegetarian? Well, keep this recipe filed away and it provides you with a light meal that makes the most of fresh flavors and ingredients that most of us keep regularly. The Italian seasoning and basil give this dish a true flavor of the Mediterranean!

Paleo Breakfast Enchilada Recipe

– Paleo Flourish

32 Keto Meatless Recipes To Make Meat-Lovers Swoon

Ingredients: hatch chile pepper or poblano pepper, eggs, salsa, salt, pepper.

There can be nothing nicer for breakfast than an egg dish with a bit of a kick! The flavors of the pepper and salsa really spice up the eggs and the idea of making these into an enchilada creates an attractive and appetizing start to your day. You can boost the flavors even more by adding in some mushrooms or other vegetables.

Keto Pierogies Using Fathead Dough (Contains Dairy)

– I Breathe I’m Hungry

Ingredients: super fine blanched almond flour, full-fat mozzarella cheese, butter, egg, onion flakes, yellow onions, salt, pepper, cauliflower, heavy cream, dubliner or other sharp cheese.

Pierogies are filled dumplings that are served with or without toppings and can be stuffed with potato or other ingredients. These ones use a cheesy cauliflower filling and are delicious served with fried onions over the top, but you can experiment with your own fillings and toppings. Try using sweet potato inside and top with fried mushrooms!

Leek and Cauliflower Soup with Coconut Cream

– The Coconut Mama

Ingredients: leeks, cauliflower, coconut cream, bone broth, salt.

This is a simple recipe and is a healthier alternative to the traditional leek and potato soup. Cauliflower is more versatile than you may think and is used to give this soup a creamy texture. The cauliflower also does not have a strong flavor, so it makes a great base for the sweetness of the leeks. You can use any bone broth you have, or boil up a leftover chicken carcass to make use of every part of the chicken.

Keto Breakfast Frittata With Black Olives and Fried Avocado (Contains Dairy)

– The Nourished Caveman

Ingredients: eggs, kalamata olives, full-fat Brie Cheese, Herbes De Provence, MCT Oil, organic butter, sea salt, avocado.

I recommend this frittata for a colder day or for a hearty start in the morning as it is very filling and will definitely fill you up till lunch! This dish is rich in flavor thanks to the herbs and cheese and has the added goodness from the olives which are loaded with healthy fats. Frying the avocado slices increases their creamy texture even more and they make the perfect topping for this frittata.

Lasagna Rolls (Vegan & Paleo)

Ingredients: eggplant, zucchini, organic tomato sauce, ghee, coconut oil or sustainable palm oil, salt, pepper, raw cashews, water, sea salt, garlic powder.

These little rolls make a wonderful appetizer, especially if your guests are vegetarian or vegan. They are quite straightforward to prepare and the color of the tomato sauce adds a lovely finishing touch. Just remember to dry off as much moisture as you can from the zucchini and eggplant so that they don’t taste soggy.

Zucchini Pasta Pesto

– Cook Eat Paleo

Ingredients: zucchini, roasted garlic walnut pesto, cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, sea salt.

Sometimes a simple dish like this is just what we need – packed with fresh flavors and so tasty it will keep you coming back! Pesto makes a great addition to a pasta dish and this recipe is a great way to use up home-grown basil and tomatoes. This makes a great meal on its own and is a good go-to for vegetarian guests.

– Low Carb Yum

Ingredients: shiratake ziti Miracle Noodles, cheddar cheese, coconut milk, heavy cream, egg, Dijon mustard.

Many of the macaroni cheese replacement recipes that I have seen involve using cauliflower, but if you or your family don’t like the flavor, you can try this one using noodles. You can cut them into short ‘macaroni’ too if you prefer. The cheesy sauce is full of flavor, thanks to the mustard, and the garlic gives the taste a lift too. Remember to rinse and dry the noodles first to get rid of any smells.

Delicious Lemon-Garlic Keto Pasta Using Yellow Squash

Ingredients: yellow (summer) squash, lemon pepper seasoning, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, fresh parsley, almonds, salt, lemon.

Here is a quick and simple recipe for delicious ‘pasta’ that would be perfect for a light lunch or summer meal. It is made using strips of summer squash, but if you can’t get those you can use zucchini instead. Lemon and garlic together give this dish a lovely fresh taste and this can be served either on its own as a meal or as a side for an Italian-inspired chicken dish.

Keto Curried Squash Soup (Contains Dairy)

– I Breathe I’m Hungry

Ingredients: butternut squash or pumpkin, garlic, water, Madras curry powder, onion flakes, kosher salt, coconut oil, unsweetened coconut, milk, chopped pistachios & toasted coconut (optional).

I just love the look of this hearty soup, with its vivid yellow color and the wonderful curry aroma. There is also something very special about the creamy texture which comes from the squash and the coconut milk, making it into real comfort food and the curry flavor is very warming. If you have any left over, you can store it in the fridge, but it also freezes very well.

Spinach & Zucchini Veggie Burgers (Contains Dairy)

– The Happy Health Freak

Ingredients: cooked spinach, zucchini, red onion, almond flour, egg, grated cheese of choice, garlic, red pepper flakes, onion powder, salt, pepper.

A friend recently let me taste these burgers because I was moaning that vegetable burgers must be pretty bland – how wrong I was! These taste amazing, especially if you use red pepper flakes which give the burgers a bit of heat. It can be nice to go meat-free just now and then, so if you are a skeptic like I was, give these a try and you will be surprised too!

Low Carb Falafel with Tahini Sauce

– I Breathe I’m Hungry

Ingredients: cauliflower, slivered almonds, ground cumin, ground coriander, kosher salt, cayenne pepper, garlic, fresh parsley, eggs, coconut flour, tahini paste, water, lemon juice.

This is another recipe that you can use if your family are not cauliflower fans, as they will never notice it! Falafel can be great to serve for a snack, as party food or on picnics, or with a fresh salad for dinner. If you are serving these at a party you can reduce the portions to bite-size pieces. Try to serve a sauce with falafel as they can be a bit dry on their own.

Vegetarian Greek Collard Wraps (Contains Dairy)


Ingredients: full-fat plain Greek yogurt, garlic powder, white vinegar, olive oil, cucumber, fresh dill, salt, pepper, collard green leaves, cucumber, red bell pepper, purple onion, kalamata olives, feta, cherry tomatoes.

These wonderful wraps are absolutely packed with flavor! The salty feta goes so well with the chunky veggies and you have the added healthy fats from the olives. This is all tied together with the freshness of the tzatziki which is rich in garlic and has the added aniseed flavor of the dill. This is such a lovely dish to serve for a summery lunch!

Mushroom Cauliflower Vegan Burgers

– Food By Mars

Ingredients: yellow onion, garlic, olive oil, mushrooms, cauliflower, dried rosemary, almond flour, salt, pepper.

These vegan burgers get their meaty texture from mushrooms and a lovely flavor from the garlic and rosemary. They are easy to make and take on a lovely brown color when cooked. You can serve these on a Keto bun, or use lettuce leaves as wraps, then top with your favorite toppings. I recommend thin slices of red onion or caramelized yellow onions.

Garlic Spinach Saute [AIP, Paleo, Keto] #paleo #recipes #glutenfree

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 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.

Not only that, but it adds such a depth of color that it can brighten loads of dishes! You can serve this with curries, chili or stews, as the cauliflower rice takes on the flavors from other ingredients.

Cauliflower Tabouli (Tabbouleh) Salad Recipe

– Paleo Flourish

Cauliflower Tabouli (Tabbouleh) Salad Recipe [Paleo, Keto, AIP] #paleo #keto #aip #recipes -

Ingredients: cauliflower florets, parsley, mint leaves, cherry tomatoes, lemon, olive oil, salt, pepper.

One of the best things about this dish is that it uses cauliflower florets to give you tabbouleh, which is normally made from grain such as bulgur wheat. The cauliflower gives a similar texture and, just like couscous, it takes on the flavors of the other ingredients. This salad makes a lovely side for chicken or pork and can be adjusted to suit your own taste.

Raw Italian Cauliflower Salad Recipe

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 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.

To look at these wonderful mushrooms you would never believe that they are so healthy! They have an amazing crispy ‘breaded’ coating and the garlic brings out the flavor of the mushrooms. These would be great served with salad for lunch, but they also make a great side dish for a steak dinner or with chicken. I like to serve these as party food with a dip of choice.

Ingredients: water, cauliflower, garlic powder, sea salt, coconut flour, eggs, Dr Cowan Kale Powder.

If your family is getting tired of the same snack over and over, why not rustle up a batch of these to get them eating well again! Because you are using kale in powder form, there is nothing to put the veggie-haters off, so you can serve these as snacks or as a side with their favorite meal. They can also help if you are watching your calorie intake as they are really low.

Creamy Paleo Cauliflower Mash Recipe

Here is the perfect creamy yet healthy mash to serve to family and friends as it can be used in place of mashed potato with any meal. This is ideal for people with blood sugar issues such as diabetics as the mash is very low in carbs. If you are serving this mash with fish, you could chop the scallions and mix through the dish then sprinkle a little dill on the top.

The asparagus gives this dish such a vibrant color and it would be great as an alternative to your regular mash. This dish is lighter and would be good to serve on a warm day as it can be enjoyed hot or cold. The lemon juice adds a note of freshness to the mash and stops the asparagus from oxidizing and turning brown.

Ingredients: dried oregano, paprika, sea salt, cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, kale, extra virgin olive oil.

I know it can be difficult to persuade certain members of the family to eat kale, but in our house kale chips go down really well! Even with the youngsters!

Ingredients: zucchini, yellow squash, pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, sea salt, butter, Parmesan or Asiago cheese, pork rinds (optional).

Vegetable casseroles can be so hearty and warming and are the perfect way to use up squash that can be in abundance at certain times of the year. This one has great color and texture, especially if you top with the pork rinds, and the cheese and buttery topping sets it all off really well. You could also make this with just squash and serve it over zucchini noodles.

Even if you or your family don’t like cooked sprouts, you may well enjoy them raw in a lovely salad like this one! The apple cider vinegar helps to combat any bitter flavor in the sprouts and adds a great freshness to the dish. This is a great dish to serve as a side with grilled chicken or steak, and if you add in a little chopped dill it also goes well with fish.

Ingredients: okra, olive oil, sea salt, garlic powder, smoked paprika.

Just to clarify, okra can also be known in some countries as Lady’s Fingers and they are very common in southern cuisine. If you are missing fries on your diet as a snack or a side you might find these ones fill the gap. The smoked paprika adds a real boost to the flavor and these can be served with a dip to enjoy on game night.

Ingredients: butter, shallot, cremini mushrooms, beef stock, balsamic vinegar, fresh flat-leaf parsley, fresh thyme, sea salt, black pepper.

This has got to be one of the tastiest side dishes ever! The balsamic vinegar boosts the flavor of the mushrooms and shallots, giving the dish a really rich taste. This would be great served with steak or chargrilled chicken and don’t worry if you can’t source cremini mushrooms as this recipe works just as well with white or chestnut ones.
