1: Simple Keto Enchiladas KETO DINNER RECIPES

I’ve been loving simple keto swaps lately, so that’s why I was excited to try this simple keto enchiladas recipe.  I love using homemade keto tortillas in my recipes, but sometimes I just don’t have the time or energy to make them from scratch.  I also hate to spend money on the storebought ones because let’s face it, they all taste terrible.  This recipe ditches all of that by using rolled up lunchmeat.

I know you’re probably like, “Wait, what?” I was too, but the ham slices are a perfect stand-in.  They are just strong enough to hold everything together but soft enough to easily cut through with a fork.  Plus, the taste is fantastic.  Honestly, I’m kicking myself for not trying this earlier!

Yields 4 servings of Simple Keto Enchiladas

10 Easy Keto dinner Ideas

THE PREPARATION

  • ½ pound ground beef

2: Seared Salmon and Asparagus with Easy Hollandaise KETO DINNER RECIPES

This dinner recipe is as impressive as a restaurant meal, but it’s so easy to put together. So, no excuses for eating out again, we’re dining in tonight! The salmon and asparagus spears are seared in a single pan, then the hollandaise is quickly whipped up in a blender. Anyone can make hollandaise using this method, yes that means you. Even if you’ve broken this sauce a million times, you’ll have this on the table in no time.

I chose salmon and asparagus, but you could easily substitute broccoli if you’d prefer that instead. Our keto spin on rice pilaf would go great with this recipe as well. Let me know what you’d pour this sauce on top of in the comments. It’s a great way to add more fat to your meals, and I’m always looking for new ideas!

3: Keto Ground Beef Stroganoff KETO DINNER RECIPES

Classic beef stroganoff serves cubes of beef in a creamy sauce, served over rice or noodles. This ketofied version of the recipe also cuts down on its cost, by making use of ground beef. This ground beef stroganoff dinner is easy to make, and a wonderful tool to have for a quick family dinner.

This stroganoff uses mushrooms instead of the noodles. They have the perfect texture, but without the fuss of cauliflower rice or noodle substitutes. Though, adding a side of cauliflower rice would be great for this too!

  • 1 clove minced garlic

This Instant Pot recipe converts lasagna into a keto treat that’s oh so easy. Forget the noodles! We’re going without in order to save time on the prep.

Now, if you want to, you can of course easily convert this recipe for use in the slow cooker. Just use your stovetop to cook the beef, garlic, and onion. Then you can assemble straight in the pan, but don’t add the water, and cook on high for 3-4 hours.

Yields 8 servings of Instant Pot No-Noodle Keto Lasagna

THE PREPARATION

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

5: Keto Shepherd’s Pie  KETO DINNER RECIPES

This keto shepherd’s pie casserole is a recipe you’ll make again and again. It’s filling comfort food at it’s finest, and a great dish to prepare when you’re trying to make sure you have leftover. Well-seasoned ground lamb is topped with a creamy cauliflower mash, then baked in the oven until golden.

This recipe is a great way to use up any ground meat that you have on hand. We’re using lamb but you could also do this with chicken or beef. Just make sure that the cooked cauliflower is drained super well. You want to remove as much water as possible in order to ensure a good mash.

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

6: Tex Mex Casserole KETO DINNER RECIPES

A Tex-Mex style casserole packed with bell pepper, green onion, cilantro, and jalapeno, then topped with cheddar cheese. Great served with a dollop of sour cream, or even extra jalapeno if you can handle the heat! If you love Mexican flavors, and meatloaf, then this recipe will be one you enjoy too.

To make this meal fast we used a food processor, but you could also chop everything by hand if you don’t happen to have one. You want the vegetables to be a chunky, colorful, and flavor-packed edition to the casserole. Not a puree!

Yields 4 servings of Tex Mex Casserole

THE PREPARATION

Casserole Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ pounds ground beef

  • ¼ cup packed cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

7: Keto Chicken, Bacon, Ranch & Sun-Dried Tomato Salad KETO DINNER RECIPES

What if I told you that you could make this amazing chicken, bacon, ranch, and sun-dried tomato salad then serve it either hot on top of zoodles or cold on top of a bed of lettuce? Fortunately, unlike certain 90’s movies you don’t actually have to choose.

You can have this recipe both ways! However, for simplicity’s sake we’ll show you how to make this into a salad today. This recipe clocks in at just 3 net carbs per serving. We used our own ranch dressing for this recipe, but you can use whatever dressing you like. Just be sure to adjust the nutritional information when tracking.

8: Keto Salisbury Steak with Mashed Cauliflower KETO DINNER RECIPES

Salisbury steak has a long history with the low-carb community. It’s named after Dr. Salisbury, who was an early advocate for the low carb style of eating. His diet recommending eating these three times a day, which is probably a bit much. It’s almost a bit funny that most of the Salisbury steak served today has high carb fillers, gravy with flour in it, or noodles on the side. This recipe takes Salisbury steak back to its low carb roots.

This Salisbury steak uses almond flour in the beef patties, then serves it up with mashed cauliflower and savory mushroom gravy. While the beef patties are cooking in the oven, whip up the gravy for a meal that comes together quickly. This dinner is great for meal prep too.

Yields 3 servings of Keto Salisbury Steak with Mashed Cauliflower

THE PREPARATION

  • 3 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
  • 12 ounces ground beef
  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons fresh chopped parsley
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 ½ cups sliced mushrooms
  • ¼ cup beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream

9: Keto Instant Pot Creamy Chicken  KETO DINNER RECIPES

This creamy chicken recipe is wildly popular across keto websites. It’s basically a chicken salad mixed with cream cheese, bacon, ranch seasoning, and green onions. This recipe is one of those where it’s hard to put the spoon down!

Making this in the Instant Pot just makes it that much easier. You can even throw frozen chicken in there if you forget to thaw it out. An extra five minute on the timer and you’re good to go.

Yields 8 servings of Keto Instant Pot Creamy Chicken

THE PREPARATION

  • 2 slices bacon, chopped
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless, chicken breasts

  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

10: Roasted Chicken Thighs In Red Pepper Sauce KETO DINNER RECIPES

Got some chicken thighs to use up, but not sure how to go about it? Or perhaps you’re finally ready to get off the low-fat chicken breast train and commit to using the best part of the chicken. (I’m biased, I know.) Here’s an easy roasted chicken thigh dinner that features minimal prep but maximum flavor.

The creamy red pepper sauce turns this recipe into a restaurant quality dish, punctuated by goat cheese and fresh parsley. You’ll want to add this recipe to your regular dinner rotations.

Yields 4 servings of Roasted Chicken Thighs in Red Pepper Sauce

Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

11: VEGETARIAN KETO “CRAB” CAKES KETO DINNER RECIPES

Crab cakes can easily be made keto with a simple swap for bread crumbs, but today we are going even further to make a keto crab cake that is crab-less! That’s right, a vegetarian-friendly crab cake with absolutely zero meat that still achieves that flakey interior and a crisp buttery crust!

The secret ingredient in these crabless cakes is hearts of palm. This vegetable is harvested from the core of many different varieties of palm trees and is nutrient dense yet low in net carbs. Its flavor could be compared to an artichoke in that it’s mild and slightly briny but pairs well with cheesy dips or a buttery crumb coating. The texture of this vegetable is very similar to lump crab meat when carefully broken apart with a fork or gently with clean hands.

20 KETO DINNER RECIPES FOR YOUR LOW CARB DIET

Because there is some moisture in the hearts of palm, this recipe calls for almond flour in the crab mixture as well as a bit more to coat the cakes. This keeps them from falling apart while giving you a beautifully browned and crisp coating. Pan frying is also crucial to keeping them together and gives the cakes the proper texture.

Serve these crabless cakes with your favorite dipping sauce or as a patty on a bed of lettuce! These cakes are best served immediately but will hold up to reheating for up to three days. These crabless cakes make a great option for lunch or even a keto dinner.

Yields 3 servings, 2 cakes per serving, of Vegetarian Keto “Crab” Cakes

THE PREPARATION

  • 1 can hearts of palm, drained
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon (10g) onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons almond meal
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
  • 4 tablespoons avocado oil

12: Vegan Portobello Steaks with Avocado Salsa KETO DINNER RECIPES

Whether it’s BBQ season or you’re just in the mood for something smoky and grilled, this marinated portobello mushroom steak is the answer to any vegan keto cravings! The perfect option for a vegan keto dinner.

20 KETO DINNER RECIPES FOR YOUR LOW CARB DIET

Fitting in enough fats can be a challenge when eating vegan recipes on a keto diet. The avocado piled on this marinated portobello steak is not only for flavor but for the satiety and health benefits of saturated fats! This is also why we added hemp seeds. Hulled hemp seeds are one of the only plant sources for a complete protein. Just a tablespoon or two adds much-needed amino acids without adding a significant amount of carbohydrates, not to mention the nutty flavor boost!

When grilling or searing the mushroom, remember that mushrooms have a lot of moisture. You want to heat the exterior of the mushroom quickly without cooking it so long that it becomes too soft.

If you have difficulty finding the large mushroom caps, then this recipe also works with the large sliced portobello mushrooms that are often in the produce section. Prepare them the same way then fry them in a cast iron pan or a dark coated skillet to create a savory side dish!

Yields 2 servings of Vegan Portobello Steaks with Avocado Salsa

THE PREPARATION

For the Marinade

  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 tablespoon liquid aminos
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

For the Mushrooms

  • 2 large portobello mushroom caps
  • 1 medium avocado, diced
  • ½ medium roma tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup finely minced parsley
  • 2 tablespoons hulled hemp seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

13: Spicy Peanut Tofu Lettuce Cups KETO DINNER RECIPES

20 KETO DINNER RECIPES FOR YOUR LOW CARB DIET

If you have been wanting to try tofu for the first time, this recipe is perfect for beginners!

Tofu takes on the flavor of what food or sauce it has been cooked with, which makes it very versatile in vegetarian and vegan keto cooking. This recipe combines sweet with spicy in a thick and creamy peanut sauce and is wrapped in a leafy lettuce cup. These are then topped with crunchy peanuts and fragrant green onion for extra crunch!

In typical tofu preparation, you must press the tofu to remove the extra water. This means wrapping the block of tofu in a clean towel and applying pressure to squeeze out the extra water. Today you can find “pre-pressed” tofu in the grocery store which takes the extra time and labor out of your meal prep! I prefer extra firm, also known as super firm, but in general firm tofu will also work with this recipe. If you can’t find pre-pressed tofu, then try to press out as much water as you can.

The sauce is kept gluten-free by using a soy sauce alternative called liquid aminos. Traditional soy sauce will work in this recipe as well, though it has different macronutrients that will change the final carb count of the recipe so I highly recommend using this substitute.

Yields 5 servings of Spicy Peanut Tofu Lettuce Cups

THE PREPARATION

  • 1 block extra firm tofu
  • 5 tablespoons natural peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons liquid aminos
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon erythritol/stevia blend
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 small red bell pepper, diced
  • 5 medium butter lettuce leaves
  • 1 tablespoon crushed peanuts
  • 2 small green onions, chopped

14: KETO BROCCOLI AND CHEESE SOUP KETO DINNER RECIPES

It’s time to get comfy and cozy with a delicious bowl of cheese and broccoli soup! This keto recipe is pretty easy to prep and execute. It is a great meal to make quickly before relaxing by the fire during fall or wintertime, or as an appetizer before dinner.

20 KETO DINNER RECIPES FOR YOUR LOW CARB DIET

If you want to spice things up a little bit, you could add in some jalapeno peppers or pepper jack cheese.

Yields 4 servings of Broccoli and Cheese Soup

THE PREPARATION

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt and Pepperto taste
  • ½ teaspoon xanthan gum
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup broccoli, chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese

15: LOADED CAULIFLOWER CASSEROLE KETO DINNER RECIPES

I went to make a casserole today, but couldn’t decide what kind! I had all these ingredients, but nothing specific in mind…jalapeno popper casseroleMushroom casserole? Instead, I decided to combine ALL the tasty ingredients into one.

20 KETO DINNER RECIPES FOR YOUR LOW CARB DIET

This loaded cauliflower casserole is easy to make with minimal prep time and takes only an hour to cook. To reduce prep time, you can buy pre-cut mushrooms and jalapenos from the grocery store.

16: Steamed Pork Cabbage Rolls KETO DINNER RECIPES

Egg rolls have always been one of my favorite side dishes. I’ve been finding new ways to use cabbage lately and had the idea to make these steamed pork cabbage rolls. Instead of putting shredded cabbage inside, the cabbage makes a great roll filled with savory ingredients and a bit of spice from freshly grated ginger.

20 KETO DINNER RECIPES FOR YOUR LOW CARB DIET

These don’t have a fried layer like a traditional egg roll, but that doesn’t make them any less flavorful! The dipping sauce is optional, but it adds a burst of spice that completes the flavor of the rolls. Keep in mind the rolls are steamed, so when you bite into them you’ll get a nice and tender crunch.

For this recipe, you’ll need a steamer basket, vegetable peeler, and grater. If you don’t have a steamer basket, a metal strainer that fits over your pot and hooks onto the side will work as long as you are able to keep the food elevated out of the water.

Yields 8 servings of Steamed Pork Cabbage Rolls

THE PREPARATION

  • 8 medium cabbage leaves
  • 2 stalks green onion
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 small piece ginger

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

Craving tostadas while on Keto? This recipe is for you! It combines the salty spicy crunch of crispy chicken skin with shredded chicken that’s been marinated in sweet, peppery spices. The chicken skin on its own is very addicting!

20: Chicken Cordon Bleu And Kale Soup KETO DINNER RECIPES

For a lot of us, hectic schedules can mean skimping on time to prepare a good, hearty meal. That’s why it’s important to have this super simple Chicken Cordon Bleu and Kale soup recipe in your arsenal for nights when you want an easy bowl of comfort food!

Chicken Cordon Bleu and Kale Soup

So how is it possible to cozy up with a cup of this creamy Chicken Cordon Bleu and Kale Soup in less than an hour? It is as simple as utilizing some of the ingredients you may already have lying around as leftovers in your fridge! A traditional chicken cordon bleu can take hours of prepping, assembly and baking and though it’s worth it, this soup allows you to enjoy all of those flavors with minimal effort.

The secret begins with using a simple grocery store rotisserie chicken. Most grocery delis will carry a version of a rotisserie chicken either whole or in pieces. You may be able to find them pre-cut and shredded in the perfect portion for this soup, which will cut your time in half. If you have a difficult time finding the pre-made chicken, cooked chicken breast leftovers are perfect for this soup. Just dice or shred it with no extra fuss. I also like to use pre-cooked ham, but if you are making a ham for dinner or a holiday, reserve some pieces to make this soup later in the week! I love the addition of kale to this soup because it’s so nutrient dense and really holds up to the creamy texture of the soup. It’s even better reheated the next day!

Yields 6 servings of Chicken Cordon Bleu and Kale Soup

THE PREPARATION

  • 6 small strips bacon
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 6 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup cubed ham
  • 6 ounces shredded chicken breast
  • 2 cups chopped kale, stems removed
