Easy Vegan Keto Lunch Recipes

Easy Vegan Keto Lunch Recipes

To continue looking at the daily meals of a low carb vegan, I’ve put together a few easy vegan keto lunch recipes for you to peruse! This is building on the dinner recipes post I did recently. Basically, it’s just a way to compile a collection of the easy, everyday things I make for lunch on a low carb vegan diet. They’re all really easy (I don’t love complicated recipes), and contain fairly common ingredents. 🙂

Easy vegan, low carb, keto, gluten free lunch recipes!

Mock Tuna Salad

  • 1 block extra firm tofu, drained and pressed to get the extra moisture out
  • 1/2 cup vegan mayo (Hampton Creek’s Just Mayo is pretty amazing)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped carrots
  • 1/2 tsp kelp powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • celery sticks & seaweed snacks for serving
  • Mix all of the above ingredients in a big bowl until everything is well combined (except celery sticks and seaweek snacks). Crumble seaweed snacks on top, and serve with celery sticks. This makes about 4 servings, with about 4-5g net carbs. Not bad!

Jackfruit & Cauliflower Taco Bowls

  • 1 can young jackfruit in water
  • 1 tbsp (or more, if you like things spicy) taco seasoning/chili powder
  • 1 cup frozen kale
  • 1 package cauliflower rice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • garlic and onion powder to taste
  • Vegan cheese and guacamole for serving
  • Drain the can of jackfruit, and chop it into more manageable pieces. Dump everything (except vegan cheese and guac) in a pot and sautee until the cauliflower is nice and tender. Make sure to stir often so that the spices are all well incorporated. This makes about 3 servings that are 5-6g of net carbs each (pre-vegan cheese and guac). Serve with lots of guacamole or plain avocados, and vegan cheese (if you’d like – though, that will add some carbs for sure).

Kelp Noodle Pad Thai

  • recipe for the sauce is here
  • Basically, since the sauce recipe makes 4 servings, I like to make this 3-4 times a week by draining, rinsing and soaking two bags of kelp noodles together, portioning them into 4 tupperware containers and then dividing the sauce and toppings of choice on everything. It’s so easy, and absurdly delicious.

Lemon Poppy Tahini Salad Boats

  • There are two variations on this – in lettuce boats, and in avocados
  • 1 avocado, halved and pitted OR 3-4 lettuce leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped/grated carrots or purple cabbage
  • 2-4 tablespoons of sunflower seeds or tahini
  • dressing recipe is here!
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Combine carrots and dressing, and serve in the lettuce boats, or avocado halves. This makes an awesome breakfast, too, and has only 5.5g of net carbs!

Falafel Salad

  • This is less a salad, and more lettuce with falafel on top.
  • 2 cups mixed greens
  • 3 falafel balls
  • tahini sauce – 2 tbsp tahini mixed with 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • This is actually a bit higher in carbs – about 12g net for the whole shebang. Worth it, though!

  • Do you have any brilliant suggestion for camping lunches/ dinners? I’m a big fan of multi-day hikes and backcountry camping, but I’m struggling to come up with easy to pack, non-parishable HFLC foods to bring with me!

    • Hi Jennifer! I wish I did – this is such an awesome point! Backcountry camping and hiking are pretty much my favorite activities (haha, well, not in the winter), but I’m so lazy with food for them. I usually just eat packets of peanut butter, nuts and seeds, coconut and protein bars. I’m sorry that wasn’t partiularly helpful!

  • Just curious, but is the recipe for the pad thai sauce the one listed as “raw vegan pad thai”? Just asking because the there isn’t a link under the photo above.

    • Hi Sarah – great question! You are correct. It is the same sauce. I’ll correct this in the above post. Thanks for pointing it out! 🙂

  • I had a Jackfruit craving and ended up here! Can’t wait to try the Jackfruit and Cauliflower Taco Bowls! You have the best ideas!

  • Hi from Ireland! liz, just starting out on vegan keto and I’m not experienced with macro management yet. I need an amazing vegan keto weekly plan that i can shop for and takes the effort out for the beginning stage. Can you direct me anywhere? I downloaded and shopped one for this week but next week i’m stuck!! i would be so grateful to you if you could point me in the right direction.

    I made chia seed pudding this am from the plan I have and it was GROSS. Inedible!! I put green stevia in instead of the white stuff. Ugggh. learning
