Curious About Vegan Keto? Check Out These Low-Carb Recipe Ideas and Tips

The ketogenic (keto) diet is a low-carb, high-fat regimen aimed at changing the way that your body uses energy. We at PETA don’t advocate for any particular diet, but if you’re going to practice the keto diet, we recommend that you do it the compassionate way.

Some vegan dairy and meat products are keto-friendly, like the pea protein Beyond Burger, Miyoko’s Kitchen cashew-based butter and cheeses, and Kite Hill almond-based yogurt and cream cheeses. Here’s a list of vegan keto recipes and inspirational Instagram photos to show you how simple it is:

‘Bacon’ and ‘Cream Cheese’ Stuffed Mushrooms

These cute-as-a-button mushrooms make a dreamy appetizer or side dish. For the filling, try Kite Hill’s almond-based cream cheese.

Vanilla Keto Overnight “Oats”

Oat toppings are only limited by your imagination.

Crispy Avocado Fries

You’re just three ingredients away from avocado bliss. All you need are avocados, almond milk, and almond flour.

Mediterranean Mung Bean and Olive “Meatballs”

Add these super-healthy morsels to a kale or spinach salad, and drizzle over some oil or salad dressing to up the fat ante.

Shirataki Noodles with Almond Butter Sauce

Shirataki noodles are keto-friendly because they’re made from a low-carb Japanese yam.

Peanut Sesame Shirataki Noodles

This shirataki noodle dish opts for a protein punch of peanuts and a vegetable of your choice. (Why not throw in some edamame beans, too?)

Low carb and on trend Turn into delicious, unique breakfast sandwich buns! Cut two large avocados in half lengthwise. Carefully remove the skins. Slice off a small portion from the bottom of two halves so that they lie flat.
