Easy Vegan Keto Lunch Recipes

Note: Hi, friends! Just a a quick reminder – some of the links on this site are affiliate links, and so I may earn a little cash on qualifying orders. It doesn’t cost you anything extra, and is a nice way to help support this site! I also want to point out that I don’t promote products I haven’t actually tried or products that I don’t trust. 🙂

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!

  1. 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!

    1. Liz Author says:

      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!

  2. 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.

    1. 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! 🙂

  4. 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

    1. Liz Author says:

      Hi Dee! It’s definitely a learning curve. I’ve actually made that same mistake with stevia…it’s not pleasant!
