If you’ve recently started the vegan keto diet or even if you’ve been on that train for a while, you might be looking for new and fun ideas for vegan keto meals. And it doesn’t have to be as hard as you think it does. While vegan keto meals are quite restrictive, you can have fun with them. You can also mimic some classic meat dishes - without using any meat.
So, if you’re coming up short with meal ideas, don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. In fact, we’ve got 7 easy vegan keto meals you can make right now (and once you do, we’re sure you’re going to want to make them again and again!).
7 Ideas for All Your Vegan Keto Meals
So, what should you make? Check out our list of ideas below.
1. Cauliflower Steaks with Vegan Cashew Cheese
Cauliflower comes in handy on the vegan keto diet. In fact, it’s a staple in many vegan keto meals including cauliflower steaks. And the whole thing takes about 30-40 minutes to make.
Start by slicing two heads of cauliflower in four steaks. Add a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper, and fry your cauliflower until they are nice and crispy on each side, then transfer the pan (if oven-safe) into the oven. Cook these in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until they are soft and top with vegan cashew cheese.
2. Mushroom Lettuce Tacos
You can make these tacos in all kinds of ways. This is really a personal preference, especially when it comes to how you like your mushrooms cooked and what toppings you desire. You can also add your favorite spices or sauces. Wrap it all up in a piece of lettuce, and you’ve got one yummy vegan keto meal.
3. Zucchini Noodles Mixed with Avocado Sauce
Grab your spiralizer and get to work. Once you’ve spiralized your zucchini, blot some of the moisture out before you pan fry them. While your zucchini noodles pan-fry, mix up your avocado sauce. There are a lot of options for what kind of avocado sauce you can use. We recommend finding your favorite and going with that! Also, you can add walnuts or another nut to add a bit more texture to this dish. Bon appetite!
4. Cauliflower Pizza
As far as vegan keto meals go, cauliflower pizzas are all the rage. Who doesn’t love a good slice of pizza? On the vegan keto diet, you don’t need to avoid your favorite foods. You can enjoy them just the same but with a few different ingredients.
Vegan keto cauliflower pizza requires cauliflower rice, flax seeds, almond flour, salt, oregano, and garlic. It’s so easy to make and you can add all the toppings you love once made!
5. Avocado Fries
Fries don’t exactly fit into the vegan keto diet, but avocado fries do! While potatoes are high in carbs, avocados are full of healthy fats.
The best part? You only need three ingredients: avocados, almond milk, and almond flour. However, if you prefer your fries a little crispier, you may want to throw in some shredded coconut for that coating along with almond flour. You simply cut up the avocados, dip them in the almond milk, then dip them in the coating of almond flour and shredded coconut. Bake them for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and enjoy! Eat them alongside your favorite dipping sauce.
6. Tofu Breakfast Scramble with Coconut Bacon
We weren’t going to leave this list without a breakfast option. And tofu breakfast scramble might sound intimidating but it’s actually quite easy to make.
Start by crumbling the tofu up into little bits (like you would see in scrambled eggs). Then pan fry the bits of tofu for about two minutes. While they are pan-frying, mix your favorite spices together, such as a half teaspoon of salt, garlic, and cumin with a quarter teaspoon of chili powder. Add just enough water to the spices so that you can pour the mixture into the tofu scramble. Cook for a little bit longer and your scramble is ready to eat!
Alongside your tofu scramble, you can have coconut bacon. Remember that vegan keto meals always require a bit of creativity. Thankfully, the internet has a ton of ideas for this. There are various different types you can make, depending on your preference. And it’s probably a good idea to make the coconut bacon before your tofu scramble since it’s more than likely that it’ll have to cook in the oven for at least 10 minutes.
7. Brussel Sprouts with Mushroom Bacon
The key to making mushroom bacon is to slice it into very thin pieces. Toss these pieces with olive oil and salt (or spices of your choice, such as garlic). After this, you’ll want to put them in the oven and bake them until they are nice and crispy - just like bacon!
Top these mushroom bacon pieces over top of steamed or baked Brussel sprouts, and you’ve got yourself a filling and tasty vegan keto meal.
