Keto Vegan Recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and dessert

It’s no secret that I love sharing healthy keto recipes and sharing healthy vegan recipes. However, it’s been a tricky thing to develop recipes that are vegan AND keto-friendly. 

It’s often assumed that the ketogenic diet is heavy in animal protein and non-plant based fats, but that is simply not the case.

Can Keto be Vegan?

You can easily follow a ketogenic diet while being 100% vegan and plant-based. Although the keto diet does not include grains and starches, there is plenty of other options that vegans can enjoy. 

How do vegans eat low carb? 

There is often the assumption that the ketogenic diet is void of fruits and vegetables, but that is simply not the case. Non-starchy vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and spinach are fantastic staples that can be enjoyed. Furthermore, low sugar fruits like strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries can also be enjoyed.

Nuts and seeds are great to also include, such as almonds, cashews, pepitas, and ground flaxseed. Healthy oils and fats, like coconut oil and canola oil, can be used in recipes, and also to cook foods in. 

Non-dairy options that are both keto and vegan are coconut yogurt, non-dairy butter, and coconut cream.

How do I follow a vegan keto diet?

It’s not difficult to follow a vegan keto diet. There are plenty of wholesome and healthy breakfast recipes, lunch and dinner recipes, and also a plethora of desserts.

The key to any diet is to ensure good health, lots of energy and of course, satisfaction with meals. 

Like any diet, if you have any medical concerns or pre-existing conditions, it’s best to speak to a medical professional to ensure any diet (keto, vegan, both or neither) is suitable for you both in the short term, and long term. 

High protein vegan staples for a keto diet

Getting enough protein is key to any diet. Luckily, there are some fantastic high-protein vegan options perfect for a ketogenic diet. Tofu, seitan, and tempeh are all fabulous vegan meat substitutes, that all pack a punch of protein per serve! Here are the net carbs and protein per 100-gram serving (around 4 ounces). 

  • Tofu. 1.5 net carbs, 8 grams protein per 100-gram serving. 
  • Tempeh. 4 grams net carbs, 19 grams protein per 100-gram serving.
  • Seitan. 10 grams net carbs, 75 grams protein per 100-gram serving. (Please note- There is wheat in seitan, but it is keto vegan approved provided you can tolerate wheat, and only eat 100-gram servings).
