Try These 17 Vegan Keto Recipes for Your Next Family Gathering
Like many children of the ’90s, I grew up eating my share of processed foods. (Frosted Pop Tarts, hot dogs, and boxed mac and cheese were regular players in my diet.) And like many mothers, my mom served her family lots of meat-based entrees. Now I’m vegan and my parents are keto—meaning they stick with high-fat, low-carb foods that are low in sugar and moderate in protein. The whole family is eating more plants (and less meat) than ever, but it turns out that learning to navigate plant-based and keto family gatherings is an ongoing process.
Since the ketogenic diet minimizes carbs, some of my favorite foods, like potatoes, lentils, pasta, puff pastry dough, and most fruits, don’t fit into my parents’ keto lifestyle. And because I don’t eat meat, dairy, or eggs, most of my mom’s go-to recipes don’t work for me. Luckily, the internet abounds with delicious, healthy, and simple keto-friendly vegan recipes that even my young nieces enjoy.
Whether you’re preparing for your own vegan keto family gathering or you just feel like switching things up in the kitchen, there are plenty of healthy and satisfying plant-based keto dishes to munch. I scoured the web to find mouthwatering keto-friendly vegan recipes. From coconut bacon and dark saltwater truffles to collard green burritos and 14 other amazing recipes, my favorite food bloggers did not disappoint.
