1. Easy Low-Carb Air Fryer Salmon with Mustard-Herb Sauce by Kalyn’s Kitchen
“This Easy Low-Carb Air Fryer Salmon with Mustard-Herb Sauce will be one of the tastiest things you’ve ever cooked in the Air Fryer, or follow the link for directions to cook it in the oven if you prefer!”
-Kalyn (Kalyn’s Kitchen)
There’s nothing like some sea-food every once in a while (trust me, you’ll want to take a break from the bacon sometimes, as hard as it might seem to imagine).
Salmons make an excellent addition to the keto diet since they are super low-carb and rich in the heart-healthy Omega-3 fatty acids. So it’s a great idea to include it in your keto meal plan and include it often!
This air-fryer salmon recipe is simple and filling and comes with a luscious, creamy herb sauce that carries a sharp kick of mustard and is bound to be a mood-fix after a long day.
In fact, take it a step ahead and hit two birds with one stone- make an extra serving and eat cold salmon for lunch the next day. Now is there someone here who will contest the fact that the mustard flavor melds with the salmon better overnight?
Add the cucumber coated in herb sauce and you’ll hit the spot. Then puff-up…
Not from the carbs, silly! But from thinking about how you made this in less than half an hour!
2. Pesto Spaghetti Squash with Chicken by Leelalicious
“Years ago, when I was a server at an Italian restaurant their pesto pasta was always my favourite. Now I know that it is actually a super simple dish to make at home. And by using spaghetti squash instead of pasta I can get all the amazing flavours with fewer carbs. Using store-bought pesto is a quick & delicious option, but I also highly recommend trying out different homemade pesto variations!”
It’s awesome how we can make keto versions of anything, isn’t it? And we didn’t stop at the zucchini this time – this pesto spaghetti squash is going to be your most sought-after spaghetti replacement henceforth!
Well, for starters, you don’t need a bowl, your meal is the bowl. If, for some weird reason, that doesn’t excite you, then just focus on how simple it is! Just cook up some chicken in a pre-made/ store-bought pesto sauce and pour it into your baked squash bowl and tada!
Also, don’t forget that you just got yourself a good amount of fiber in your keto meal, which is especially hard if you’re not a fan of veggies.
Woah! Did it just strike you that your spaghetti was actually a vegetable?
3. Avocado Taco Boats by Essential Keto
“These avocado taco boats are my favorite recipe for Tuesday nights when avocados are in season.”
-Noline (Essential Keto)
When life gives you perfectly ripe avocados…
Make avocado taco boats :p
No, seriously. I can’t think of a single reason you wouldn’t.
To begin with, who wouldn’t want to try avacado tacos instead of boring old gluten and carb-filled tacos? Second, it is filling- what with the ground beef and cheese mix. Third, it’s got that awesome Mexican vibe with the salsa to complete the awesomeness!
Highly recommended easy and quick keto dinner recipe (for those lucky times when you actually manage to wait the right amount for avocados to ripen perfectly)!
4. Keto Coconut Curry Shrimp and Zoodles by Grumpy’s Honeybunch
“Coconut Curry Shrimp and Zoodles is a solution to your weeknight dinner. The shrimp are served in a homemade curry sauce with just a touch of sweet heat, all served over zucchini noodles. This low carb dinner is bound to become a busy night favorite.”
-Shelby (Grumpy’s Honeybunch)
Coconut milk is, understandably, one of the best parts of being on the keto diet, isn’t it? Try complimenting that creamy, nutty flavor with some nut-butter and hot-sweet spice and you have all the comfort you need from dinner!
To top it off, you’ll look forward to each bite of the luscious shrimp and if you’re missing noodles, you’ll be more than made up for by the zoodles (i.e., zucchini noodles- if it has, somehow, managed to escape you- this awesome low-carb invention to substitute noodles)!
Come on, making sea-food this appealing can’t be easier- keto or not-keto!
5. No Bean Whole-30 Keto Chili in the Instant Pot by Food Faith Fitness
“This No Bean Whole30 Keto Chili in the Instant Pot is a meat lovers dream! A paleo chili recipe that’s a healthy weeknight dinner for the whole family!”
-Food Faith Fitness
Black bean is a strict no-no on the keto diet but who needs them anyway when you can whip up your own keto version of black-bean chili?
This recipe is a God-send, especially for those nights when you just cannot seem to be able to put those Mexican dreams and cravings away.
And if you’re a meat lover, this is BINGO! This keto recipe is one of those why-ever-eat-anything-veg recipes that will turn anything into carnivore-paradise.
And the added advantage?
It’s super quick to make! Yes, you can thank me later.
6. Ginger Chicken by A Girl Worth Saving
“When it comes to a simple, quick keto dinner, my hands down favorite is my Ginger chicken recipe. With less than 10 ingredients it, this recipe is full of rich and savory ginger flavor and it cooks up with no fuss!”
-Kelly (A Girl Worth Saving)
Muscle soreness from the workout? All cranky from the menstrual cramps? Suffering from indigestion because keto isn’t as easy on your not-so-strong gut?
This recipe comes endowed with the superpowers of ginger, known to work as an anti-inflammatory to heal several ailments.
And if the superpowers aren’t enough to convince you, then the hot, spicy, pungent flavor of ginger paired with the nuttiness of coconut oil and excellent onion flavor are definitely going to turn your mood around and spring you away from all things demotivating!
7. Cauliflower Sushi Rolls by Namely Marly
“For a unique and plant-based twist on keto, try this Cauliflower Rice Sushi recipe by Namely Marly. You’ll love the combination of flavors making this recipe both healthy and delicious! I know homemade sushi can sound intimidating, especially if you haven’t rolled sushi before. Thankfully this recipe has step by step process photos to help you along. This Veggie Sushi is made without rice. Instead Marly uses cauliflower rice which is delicious, especially combined with colorful veggies, avocados, and peanut butter dipping sauce.”
-Marly (Namely Marly)
All is great about keto, you can eat your favorite meat, your favorite cheese, heck there’s also low carb breads and keto cookies (psst, I have created a detailed guide on how to make your own keto cookies) and other desserts should the sweet tooth become bothersome.
But what about your love for that exotic sushi? It can be saddening to have to give up that occasional love-affair, right? Well, just don’t!
This cauliflower rice sushi rolls recipe is sure to make you go- “Woah! People can make a keto-friendly version of anything!”
Well, if that thought doesn’t excite you, then maybe this should- you can easily roll out these sushi rolls in less than 30 minutes!
Who would’ve thought, right? A+ for creativity!
8. Keto Queso Chicken Soup by Cast Iron Keto
“This Keto Queso Chicken Soup is one of our favorite 30-minute recipes. Everyone loves it regardless of diet preferences and it’s super customizable with your choice of toppings making it a great staple to your weekly menu. Personally, I love the soup topped with some fresh jalapeños, sour cream, and avocado with a few shakes of hot sauce!”
-Alex (Cast Iron Keto)
For a warm and quiet dinner, make this cheesy, rich keto chicken soup, perfect for those on and not on the diet alike!
The low-carb but high fat content makes this soup not just soup but a filling meal, zesty with the tanginess of the rotel and decadent with the creaminess of the cheese. You just don’t need to worry about separate dinner for the kids!
Alex also talks about the goodness of cooking in cast-iron, something well worth considering, keto or not!
9. Baked Cod Fillets with Brussels Sprouts by Irena Macri
“These oven-baked cod fillets with Brussels sprouts and cherry tomatoes are super quick and easy. The cod is topped with a delicious, spiced paste that turns into crispy, caramelised crust when the cod is baked. Making the fish and vegetables in one pan turns this into a fuss-free, sheet-pan dinner that you can make even on the busiest of days.”
-Irena (Irena Macri)
This recipe is actually more of a simplified concept of making a quick and easy keto dinner.
Choose a fish of choice, lay it out on a pan, slather it with some spice paste, throw in some veggies around, flavor with a drizzle of olive oil and lime zest and pop the pan into the oven.
If you follow a meal prep routine, it’s delightfully easier! You’ll have your fish all prepped, the spice paste ready and vegetables all washed and cut up, just ready to be assembled and let the oven do the job.
Who ever thought keto cooking would be a lot of effort and time-consuming, right?
Try this recipe a few times in different versions and I bet you’ll be dreaming of that crispy, caramelized crust of spice on the cod, on days when you’re not eating it for dinner.
10. Low-Carb Curried Riced Cauliflower with Shrimp by Living Sweet Moments
“This delicious Curried Riced Cauliflower recipe with shrimp is low carb, paleo and keto friendly. Ready in 20 minutes for a quick weeknight dinner idea.”
-Tiffany (Living Sweet Moments)
Of course, on keto, rice is just a dream, but you might find some solace in the replacement cauliflower rice that’s not only low-carb but also rich in fiber and micronutrients.
This recipe is definitely your one-stop carb-craving-fix, especially on nights when all you really want is to eat rice with some brilliant, flavorful curry.
The best thing is it’s totally customizable. With cauliflower rice as the base, you can experiment with different flavors and vegetables, even substitute the shrimp with chicken or beef if you’re not in the fishy mood.
11. Easy Baked Pesto Chicken Recipe by The Forked Spoon
“This Easy Baked Pesto Chicken Recipe from The Forked Spoon is made with juicy chicken breasts and oven-baked in a creamy homemade basil pesto sauce. Ready in 30 minutes or less, serve this Pesto Chicken with your favorite sides for a delicious and flavorful low-carb dinner.

-Jessica (The Forked Spoon)

It’s also family approved- serve this with roasted veggies like cauliflower and broccoli for yourself and starchy pasta, potatoes or rice for the rest of them.
Doesn’t that make dinner-making easy? Well, make it even easier by making the pesto sauce before hand as part of your Sunday meal-prep, ready and at your service!
12. Whole30 Cobb Salad (Paleo, Keto) by What Great Grandma Ate
“This delicious and filling Whole30 Cobb Salad contains all the flavors you love in a classic cobb with a healthier twist! I promise, you won’t miss the cheese at all.”
-Jean (What Great Grandma Ate)
After a long, hard day when you’re feeling down and unmotivated, this colorful, cheery Whole30 Cobb Salad is sure to lift your spirits.
And if the colors are not enough, then the crispy chewiness of bacon, the rich creaminess of avocado and the juicy crunch of the vegetables will definitely do the job!

13. Buffalo Chicken Salad by Everyday Maven
“You can serve it as lettuce wraps, on top of a salad, stuffed into half of an avocado, or with mini bell peppers for scooping! It’s easy, full of flavor, and on the table in about 10 minutes.”
-Alyssa (Everyday Maven)
If you’ve been dreaming about making the perfect buffalo but each time you try, it turns out not-so-thrilling, you’ve got to give this recipe a shot.
What’s awesome is that this buffalo chicken salad has just four ingredients- yes, you heard me- four, just four!
And the more exciting part?
It is so versatile – you could prep it once and use it for a few meals with a new spin each time- eat as is or as the filling in a keto bread sandwich or in lettuce wraps.
Or, it might be time to even get creative and make your own unique pair!
14. Quick and Easy Salmon Foil Pack by Heather Cooan

15. Mediterranean Roasted Red Peppers Pesto Cauliflower Rice by Inspector Gorgeous
“I’m a sucker for any dish that is the Mediterranean inspired. Give me feta or give me death! That being said, one of my *all-time* favorite 30-minute keto meals is this twist on Mediterranean Stuffed Peppers! It’s brimming with Greek vibes and plant protein, plus it’s just so easy to customize and “shortcut”! Use pre-riced cauliflower if you want, store-bought pesto if you’re in a pinch, and then rest is magic.”
-Liz (Inspector Gorgeous)
Here’s another vegetarian keto savior.
You’ll probably be impressed with the brilliant red of the peppers but the real appeal of this recipe is the hemp seed “presto pesto” – nutty and creamy and full of the much-needed vegetarian nutrition.
Also, look for the nutritious, low-carb base of cauliflower rice. And as if that wasn’t enough, there’s also the nuttiness of olives paired with the sharp flavor of garlic and topped with rich, salty, peppery feta.
Now is that a gorgeous vegetarian keto dinner you got in 30 minutes or what?
16. Shakshuka with Mushrooms by Julie’s Lifestyle
“Shakshuka, Arabic for ‘mixture’, is a delicious one-pan meal from the Middle East. Traditionally it consists of poached eggs in a sauce of tomatoes, chili peppers, onion and fragrant spices. This version with wild mushrooms and Swiss chard is a tasty and lighter alternative for anyone who has trouble digesting nightshades such as tomato. You can also experiment with other leafy veggies such as kale, spinach, radish greens, beetroot greens… For a vegan version, replace the eggs with tempeh ‘bacon’or smoked tofu.“
-Julie (Julie’s Lifestyle)
If you’re looking for a break from meat on keto, here’s a great option. This one-pan meal brings together the flavors of herbs like Swiss chard and parsley with the satiety of poached eggs.
It’s probably also the fastest you’ll get to be able to satisfy your post-work hunger.
17. Italian Sausage, Onion and Pepper Skillet by Primavera Kitchen
“It’s quick and easy to make and you only need a few ingredients. Besides that it’s super flavourful and the chicken broth to finish the sausages creates a good savory and concentrated “gravy” ”
-Olivia (Primavera Kitchen)
This is for one of those days when you just want sausage for dinner and you love the keto diet because you can totally go to town with the idea.
Good news! This recipe is a one-pan only which means there’s much less mess to clean up. Also, it’s simple, yet with that totally memorable flavor of garlic and onion coming together and being topped off with peppers.
A definite addition to your busy weeknight dinner meal plans!
18. Organ Meat Pie | Carnivore Quiche by Primal Edge Health
“Organ meats are some of the most affordable meats we can source from local butchers or direct from ranchers and farm to table CSAs. They also happen to be some of the most nutritious parts; rich in amino acids, fat soluble vitamins, vitamins A and D, and other essential nutrients nose-to-tail eating is very good for your health. This simple to make, Organ Meat Pie is a nourishing combination of ground beef, ground liver and ground heart mixed with egg and baked in the oven. It’s as simple as you can get! This pie is a great way to add delicious “odd bits” into your diet without any weird taste or texture.”
-Jessica (Primal Edge Health)
Following the keto diet is a delight for hardcore meat-eaters, isn’t it? If you’re looking for a simple, quick and easy dish to satisfy your carnivore urges then the organ meat pie is just the perfect choice for you.
It’s as simple as cooking ground beef (including the nutritious liver and heart) in fat, mixing in some flavors (optional- I understand that ‘hardcore’ means no additional flavors to mask the flavor of meat) and baking in a pie plate.
Could it get more carnivore yet this easy?
19. Avocado Arugula Cherry Tomato Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette by Stacey Homemaker
“This tomato salad is loaded with juicy cherry tomatoes, spicy arugula, and creamy avocado tossed with a tangy balsamic vinaigrette. It’s the most flavorful healthy side dish! Vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free.”
-Stacey (Stacey Homemaker)
If you’re in love with tomatoes and you like going to town with that tangy burst of flavor in your meal every once in a while, this easy avocado and tomato based salad is going to become your go-to!
Simply cut up your cherry tomatoes, fresh basil and arugula leaves and pour in the flavorful dressing. Finally, throw in the cut avocado and give the whole thing a toss! And DONE!
The avocado, together with the dressing, makes for a nice creamy salad and balances the sourness of tomatoes to give it just the perfect tanginess you could enjoy till the end. And do you actually question avocado? Especially on keto?
20. Chili Roasted Chicken Thighs by Cook Eat Paleo
“This is my go-to quick and easy keto dinner, simple 5-ingredient chili roasted chicken thighs. It takes just a couple minutes to put together and the oven does all the work – perfect when you don’t have a lot of time!”
-Lisa (Cook Eat Paleo)
Simple, quick and easy doesn’t have to mean bland and unsavory, right? In fact, some flavor can totally turn things around to make a boring meal perfectly appetizing!
This simple way of cooking your chicken is going to become your go-to and you know where the secret lies? In the flavor of the chili mix.
And if you’re already sweating at the thought of the spice in every bite of the meal, you can always balance it out with some cauliflower rice.
21. Sheet Pan Salmon by Seasonal Cravings
“This Sheet Pan Salmon is easily made with one of my favorite lemon-garlic salad dressings. It takes almost no prep but it’s full of flavor.”
-Karen (Seasonal Cravings)
This sheet pan salmon recipe is probably the simplest and quickest way to eat your salmon- which can be especially useful when you need to use your kitchen time making non-keto meals for the rest of the family.
Simply lay out the salmon on a sheet pan, throw in some shaved brussel sprouts, spoon some ready-made salad dressing, toss and cook in the oven. ‘Easy’ would be a total understatement, wouldn’t it?
22. Hearty, Gluten-Free Ground Beef Casserole by Intoxicated on Life
“I love it because it’s delicious, super filling, and the kids love it! There’s never any complaints at the dinner table when this dish arrives.”
-Trisha (Intoxicated on Life)
If your reason for making a quick and easy dinner meal is so that you have more time to spend with your family, here’s something I bet not just you, but your family will appreciate too!
You will agree that casserole meals are a blessing- you just need to prep once and you can feed several people, plus it’s all made and served in one casserole.
What more? It’s a great option to prep ahead of time and simply needs to be popped in the oven just before dinner time!
This beef casserole is simply layers of cauliflower rice, sauteed and flavoured ground beef and cheese assembled together to make a hearty dinner so rich with nutrients and totally gluten free. Plus, the richness of the chewy and creamy cheese is bound to appeal to the kids as well!
23. Low Carb Southwest Stuffed Peppers by The Creative Bite
“These Keto Stuffed Peppers have all the greatness of traditional stuffed peppers, with a light and healthy spin thanks to cauliflower rice and southwest spices. Green chilis and pepperjack cheese add a nice kick to the dish, but they aren’t too spicy for a nice family friendly dinner!”
-Danielle (The Creative Bite)
Vegetables can seem daunting to some keto dieters but that’s the novelty of stuffed peppers- nobody says no to them!
Now add a Southwest flavor with the blessed mix of cumin, coriander and chilli peppers to the traditional stuffed peppers and you’ve got an irresistible dinner for yourself and the entire family!
It’s not just the veggies or the godly flavor though. These southwest stuffed peppers make for a really filling meal what with the ground lean beef and cheese topping. And let’s not forget the rice replacement with the nutritious and fiber-filled, low-carb cauliflower rice!
Now think about how this can be made quickly in 30 minutes. Who wouldn’t add it to their meal plan!
24. Low Carb Taco Bowls by Salt and Lavender
“These low-carb keto taco bowls are a great way to enjoy your favorite taco flavors without all the carbs of tortillas and beans!”
-Natasha (Salt and Lavender)
So you decided to go keto and that meant giving up your favorite Mexican food because, well, taco shells, rice, beans- all are big no-no on keto!
All is well and fine till your kids ask you, with puppy eyes, to make Mexican and you’re usually good at not giving in but the Mexican flavor is just killing you!
If that’s you, then you know it’s time to make some low carb taco bowls.
It’s a simple deconstruction of the traditional taco bowl, replacing the rice with cauliflower rice and the beans with ground beef. Together with the cheese and avocados, this dish is absolutely decadent.
It is also the perfect thing to throw in some fresh veggies into as the crunch perfectly compliments the avocados and you also don’t have to worry about your mother screaming somewhere, asking you to eat your veggies
25. Super Easy Keto Crab Cakes by Broke Foodies
“These take just 5 minutes to prepare and 5-10 minutes to cook the whole batch. They do need to be refrigerated for 60 minutes however, but they can also be prepared in advanced so that all you have to do is cook them once you’re home. These ones we usually serve with a salad or keto cole slaw.”
-Idriss (Broke Foodies)
Why limit your sea-food meal quota to salmon and fish when you can add some crab every once in a while! Why should all the glory go only to salmon when crab cakes present such an awesome choice too?
Especially when it’s cheap and so easy to cook?
Pair the delicate, sweet flavor of the crab cakes with the zingy, zesty vibe of the lemony tartar sauce and you’re set for a fine meal that will surprise you with how much time and money it cost, and in a good way, for once!
26. Low-Carb Vegetarian Greek Briam by Keto Diet App
“Contrary to common belief, a keto diet doesn’t need to be “zero-carb” and you can in fact include a large variety of non-starchy vegetables. This Greek Briam is one of the best vegetable dishes you can have on a low-carb diet.”
-Martina (Keto Diet App)
Being a vegan/ vegetarian doesn’t have to be the only reason to enjoy some good veggies. In fact, it’s sad that most of the world thinks keto is all about bacon and cheese when in fact there are so many low-carb veggies that are totally A-OKAY on keto!
Actually, here’s an awesome keto low-carb dish that will ward away all misconceptions about vegetables and keto.
Include it in your meal plan to get a change from being carnivore, to add some fiber and micro-nutrients to your diet or simply to enjoy your love for vegetables!
Eat as is or as a side with some cauliflower rice or if you think it’s too much vegetable for you, then as a side with some baked salmon or chicken.
27. Egg Roll in a Bowl by Whole New Mom
“This Healthy Egg Roll in a Bowl (aka Crack Slaw) has all of the great flavor of Egg Rolls, but without all the fuss and carbs of traditional egg rolls.”
-Adrienne (Whole New Mom)
How do you eat rolls on keto? Well you either go through the trouble of making a wrap with a keto-friendly flour and then mimic a regular egg roll- perhaps you replace the sugary sauces with keto friendly ones.
Or.. You simply deconstruct the egg roll in a bowl and simply go at it!
Tell you a very useful keto secret?
Deconstruction is the way to go in keto. Want pizza? Get rid of the carb-filled crust and deconstruct it into a casserole.
Want an egg roll? Forget the wrap and simply deconstruct it into a bowl! It’s still got all the awesomeness of an egg roll- the taste, the texture and favor and of course, all the nutrition, but without all those pesky carbs from the wrap.
And it’s super quick to make! Nowww.. That’s a wrap (not)!
