Top 47 Easy Keto Recipes You'll Make Every Day
When starting the keto diet for the first time, you may be wondering, "Wait, what can I really eat?" Apparently, quite a few things! And at suppertime, that is definitely the case.
These 45 keto dinner ideas prove that: 1. It's really simple to stick to the diet; and 2. A lot of your favorite foods are already quite keto -friendly, even if the rest of your family isn't!
We assure you that no one will ever guess you're serving them "health" food if you serve them some Tuscan butter shrimp.
Some people forego all of their favorite comfort food favorites when attempting to change their eating patterns. However, that's not a lifestyle we support, and we don't think you should either! It's really not that hard to keto -fy any of your favorite recipes—nor does it require any difficult-to-find ingredients.
The savory trick to giving our keto breaded shrimp and keto fried chicken recipes that fried-style crispy crunch is crushed pig rinds; similarly, our keto beef stroganoff and keto stuffed cabbage recipes get bulk from cauliflower rice.
As previously mentioned, a large number of our go-to supper dishes are already keto -friendly. Our recipes for feta and herb-crusted salmon and garlicky Greek chicken are the ideal balance of "easy" and "dinner party-friendly," and everyone will be happy to try them.
Dinner is essentially served if you make sure to serve enough of keto -friendly side dishes alongside your main course.
Next, be sure to check out our best keto breakfasts, keto lunch meals, and keto desserts for even more incredibly simple keto recipes!

Feta & Herb-Crusted Salmon
We understand that salmon may be a little frightening. But trust us, you only need to figure out what kind of cooking is best for you. Among our best, perhaps? assembling an entire fish on a single sheet pan and adding seasoning to it instead of only the fillets.
Simply place the salmon on a sheet tray (lined with aluminum foil for the best cleanup), top with the toppings, and bake for 25 minutes to create this Mediterranean-inspired variation. No messing, no flipping, and no sticking!

7. Garlicky Greek Chicken

This is the easy (but incredibly gratifying) way to shake up your weekly rotation of chicken dinners. A few staple ingredients (that you probably already have on hand) are all it takes to turn chicken thighs into a garlicky, herbaceous fantasy.
The finest aspect? This is a great, substantial dinner to make at the last minute because your main dish and sides will be done in less than an hour.
We served this one-pan dinner with roasted asparagus and zucchini, but you can use any seasonal vegetables you happen to have on hand instead.

8. Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

The possibilities for stuffing these adaptable stuffed peppers are endless, but this is the recipe we use when we're in the mood for traditional rich and cheesy flavors.
Tender and soft peppers, stuffed with tender sirloin steak, onions, mushrooms, and two slices of cheese, add a welcome vegetable element to the well-known sandwich's flavor profile.

9. Cacio E Pepe Egg Noodles

One of our all-time favorite pasta meals is cacio e pepe. The good news is that creating your own pasta is considerably simpler than it may seem in this simplified method. Any decent nonstick pan will do. It's really easy to make, enjoyable, and, of course, tasty.

10. Keto Beef Stew

If you follow a keto diet, you are aware that traditional mac and cheese has several no-nos. This approach eliminates all the mess without compromising flavor, sorry, PASTA. Although completely optional, we believe the pig rind topping adds a nice crunch.

19. Garlicky Lemon Mahi Mahi

No matter how you prepare it, mahi mahi is a solid, mild fish that is incredibly flaky and delicate. How do we like to prepare it best? Smother it in a lemony butter sauce after cooking it over the stove with some fresh asparagus.
Serve it with extra lemon wedges, ultra-creamy mashed cauliflower, and a savory roasted vegetable, such as balsamic Parmesan roasted green beans.

20. Keto Meatballs

22. Lobster Salad

Lobster Salad

While lobster rolls are a traditional summertime dish, the split-top hot dog buns (or melted butter if you're serving it Connecticut-style) are really not necessary.
Lobster salad is amazing served on its own, especially with slices of creamy avocado. It is lightly seasoned with mayo and finished with a generous squeeze of lemon juice.

23. Bruschetta Grilled Chicken

Even though we have a ton of weeknight chicken meal recipes under our belts, one of our favorite ways to enjoy fresh summer flavors all season long is with grilled chicken that takes inspiration from bruschetta.

Cheese, bacon, and mushrooms—need we say more? Whether or not you follow a keto diet, this simple skillet dish—which is rich, creamy, and comforting—will quickly become your new weeknight favorite.

Much though oven-roasted salmon is already great, it will taste much better with a stuffing of earthy sautéed spinach, briny feta cheese, and savory-sweet cherry tomatoes.
Finally, the salmon is topped with a mixture of crushed red pepper, scallions, and—you guessed it—more cheese. Ahh.

32. Keto Lasagna

When you consider what you'll be giving up, going Keto can seem like a difficult decision. Thankfully, one of them won't be a traditional lasagna. When topped with meat and cheese, the low-carb lasagna's substitute noodles have the consistency of spaghetti. It's the cozy dish you no longer need to yearn for. To make sure your tomato sauce is Keto -friendly, make sure it has no additional sugar!

33. Keto Egg Salad

Keto Egg Salad
Keto Egg Salad
As such, traditional egg salad is typically keto -friendly. However, since fat is beneficial, we also included avocado, which is extremely creamy and nutritious! Even in a lettuce cup, it tastes delicious and fresh, but we assure you that it will fill you up. Should we serve it with crispy bacon on the side? Naturally, we do.

34. Keto Pork Chops

How on earth is something this delicious and creamy keto genic? You'll want to pour the mushroom cream sauce that comes with these simple pork chops over everything.

Eating pork meat can be very dangerous on your health.

35. Keto Meatloaf

Almond flour serves as the ideal nutty binder, bacon adds a flavorful saltiness and crunch to the top, and soy sauce gives meatloaf an umami boost you never imagined possible.
You won't hesitate to forgo the ketchup or bread crumbs at the party because there is already so much amazing flavor there.

36. Creamy Cajun Stuffed Salmon

37. Keto Taco Cups

Keto Taco Cups
Cheese taco shells are the perfect keto cheat. Essentially, what we're discussing is frico, an Italian cooking technique that involves pan-cooking cheese until it becomes slightly crispy but still pliable.
Here, we're molding small mounds of baked cheddar into portable cups before they cool all the way down.

38. Zucchini Ravioli

Zoodles can replace spaghetti in so many ways—these even outdo our favorite ravioli dishes, especially in the summer when we're craving fewer carbohydrates.

39. Iceburgers

Iceburgers
Iceburgers
Burgers drive us crazy. For evidence, just take a look at our search for the perfect burger. Unfortunately, there are occasions when we must reduce our carb intake or, to be honest, we just want the extra crunchy iceberg.
We may indulge in our burger appetites a little more when we substitute lettuce for the bread. It benefits both parties.

40. Tuscan Butter Shrimp

Is there anything in this dish that is *truly* Italian? Nope. Is it flavorful? Completely. This sauce is so delicious that you might find yourself eating it right out of the pan. (And it wouldn't be our fault!)

All of your favorite fillings are present, along with a keto -friendly cheese sauce and a crunchy cheese crisp that mimics the tostada you'd typically get in a crunchwrap supreme!

43. Zoodle Alfredo With Bacon

Zoodle Alfredo With Bacon
At Delish, we're huge fans of zoodles. Not only do they sound like such a fun term to say, but they also provide a tasty and healthy substitute for traditional spaghetti. This zoodle alfredo is so much better than the original!
This is due in part to the fact that we stuff it full of bacon and like the fact that making it with zucchini makes it a little less of a guilty pleasure!
Additionally, it takes the same amount of time to create as the original, if not less. You really must try this delicious keto -friendly meal!

44. Keto Taquitos

Keto Taquitos
Keto Taquitos
Taquitos are typically produced by tightly rolling a maize tortilla with a variety of ingredients and then deep-frying it. They are excellent. Really, really good. Sadly, they're not keto , but we used our creativity to swap out the tortilla for cheese, which is!

45. BLT Burgers

46. Keto Chili

The majority of Texans will argue that beans have no place in chili. Tomatoes, according to some, don't either. Having said that, we had no problem excluding both from this keto version.
Here, meat and veggies are stuffed into a deeply flavorful beef broth base that has been infused with paprika, cumin, and chili powder.
Whether a crowd is keto -friendly or not, this filling stew with its toppings of crispy bacon, creamy avocado, and fresh green onions is sure to delight.
