5 easy keto recipes for vegetarians

The keto diet is the most effective clean eating diet I’ve tried. It is so easy to follow, yet I get dozens of questions from readers every week. Simply put, it is a low-carb, high-fat diet. That means goodbye rice, chapati and bread, hello oil and butter!

It’s the opposite of what we’ve been taught as Indians our whole lives. But it did wonders for me and it will work for you if you follow the food list and stay off sugar.

Eating keto doesn’t mean eating just any kind of fat. It’s about mindfully choosing foods that are high in healthy fats and low in carbs (don’t forget a moderate amount of protein in every meal). If you’re not sure where to begin, there are some really delicious recipes you can rustle up in minutes.

1. Cauliflower Crusted Grilled Cheese Sandwich

This recipe basically takes the method for making cauliflower pizza crust or cauliflower breadsticks and moulds them into bread slices instead.
Nutritious and delicious!

2. Cinnamon Butter Bites

Flavourful, slightly sweet, and with a whipped taste vaguely reminiscent of frosting, these Cinnamon Butter Bites are a delicious way to eat your healthy fats. Just pop one or two at the end of your meal, or even between meals if you feel like you need a little pick-me-up.

3. Easy Cheesy Zucchini Gratin

This au gratin will make you go awww. If your children are picky eaters, this recipe will make life easier for you. Kids eat the veggies without complaining. The dish is creamy and looks good. Serve as a side with curries or as the main for light dinners.

4. Overnight Keto Oats

Overnights oats are immensely versatile. Once you have mastered the basic recipe, you can test out all kinds of different combinations. I got a new flavour every time I changed the toppings.

5. Veg Keto Burger

This vegetarian burger tastes as good as it looks. Vegetarian burgers are criticised for not being juicy enough. Safe to say, this one has a moist patty and wholesome fillings. At just 8.7 gm net carbs per burger and 55.1 gm healthy fats, it is fast food akin to slow food.
