What Are Low-Carb Vegetarian Recipes?

These 60+ Low-Carb Vegetarian Recipes are a collection of delicious breakfasts, snacks, lunches, appetizers, side dishes, dinners, and desserts all made with low-carb or keto-friendly ingredients and no meat or fish.

Making vegetarian recipes is often quite easy, as a large number of classic recipes are naturally vegetarian. But it can become tricky to make them low-carb as you need to use different ingredients.

For example, you would use the following:

  • Almond Flour or Coconut Flour instead of regular flour
  • Eggs
  • Low-carb fruits
  • Low-carb veggies such as cauliflower, zucchini, cucumber, broccoli, celery, red bell peppers instead of carrots, potatoes, and sweet potatoes.
  • Tofu or cheese instead of legumes and meat
  • Almond or Coconut milk instead of regular cow milk.
