The Keto diet has taken the world by storm. This low-carb, high-fat diet is aimed at reducing your calorie intake from common foods like white bread, sugar, and pastries. Like most diets, though, they do require some sacrifice.
This sacrifice of our favorite foods can make dieting difficult. Fortunately, with the 31 recipes we listed here, you won’t have to give up any of your favorite foods.
Macaroni and cheese, beef stew, and ooey-gooey casseroles are all still available to eat, just tweaked a little to fit the Keto diet lifestyle.
If you are thinking of going on the Keto diet or are already on it and looking for new healthy recipes to try, you’ve come to the right place. These are our top 31 keto dinner recipes you and your family will love.
There’s nothing quite like a warm bowl of beef stew on a cold winter’s day.
This is a quick and simple recipe to make, only requiring about 10 minutes of prep.
The secret ingredient in this dish is celery root, which has a buttery and earthy flavor.
If you don’t have celery roots, you can use chopped celery instead. If you are using celery root, make sure to add it in about 15 minutes before the stew stops cooking to avoid it from becoming super mushy.
Next time you’re asking yourself, What to Serve With Beef Stew, we recommend some riced or mashed cauliflower and crunchy carrots.
Red pepper makes any dish delicious, and these Greek meatballs are no exception.
Perfect as a side dish or served as an appetizer at parties, the secret ingredient in this tasty dish is the ground turkey, as it provides a great base to build upon and doesn’t overpower any flavors.
If you don’t have ground turkey or aren’t a fan, you can use pork or lamb instead. Since they’re meatballs, you can even swap the turkey out for some veggie noodles instead, too.
Are you a chicken lover? Us, too, which is why we recommend this tasty dish. Garlic and butter are a dynamite combination together and work so well with a juicy slab of chicken.
The secret ingredient here is, of course, the garlic, as it’s what builds the flavor of this dish.
However, if you want, you can add a little lemon sprinkle if you want some additional flavor.
This recipe calls for white wine, but if you don’t have it or prefer not to include it, you can use chicken broth instead. The flavors will be different, but they’ll still be tasty (we promise!)
Cauliflower has become a popular alternative for pizza, mashed potatoes, and now even mac and cheese.
Since this recipe omits noodles, the secret ingredient you don’t want to overlook is the cheese.
Feel free to play this recipe up and use everything from cheddar to provolone and even pepper jack.
There’s no wrong answer here, which is what we love about this unique and healthy recipe.
You can swap out the heavy cream used to make the cheese sauce for a non-dairy alternative or grass fed-dairy products instead.
Broccoli, cheese, and bacon – it’s a trio that tastes oh so good together.
The secret ingredient in this dish is the apple cider vinegar, which compliments the broccoli and adds a little bit of sweetness to the creamy and decadent salad.
If you don’t have apple cider vinegar, you can use a little lemon juice.
It’s not as sweet, but sometimes that’s more preferred depending on your pallet. Feel free to experiment with this dish and add nuts and raisins to it for a crunchy element.
Do you love cheeseburgers? What about lasagna? If your answer to both questions was yes, then this is the perfect dinner recipe for you.
Broccoli and ground beef taste great together, especially when topped with some melty cheese.

If you don’t want to use the bacon, no worries; you can swap it out for turkey bacon instead to make it healthier.
The secret ingredient in this recipe is mushrooms. While it’s recommended that you use white mushrooms, this dish tastes just as great with shiitake and portobello mushrooms.
The soft mushrooms pair great with the crunchy texture of the bacon, regardless of which type you go with. As culinary experts say, “it’s a complete bite.”
Are you looking for healthy keto recipes? If so, why not try this one out for size? Zucchini is one of those versatile vegetables that tastes great with tomato sauce and cheese.

The secret ingredient here is the marinara sauce because it can be as mild or as spicy as you like.
If you don’t have marinara sauce, you can make your own sauce by adding in some diced tomatoes instead.
The flavor profile will be similar, and you can still enjoy this family-fun recipe.
Instead of being stuffed with rice, bell peppers are stuffed with ricotta cheese, marinara sauce, and parmesan cheese that’s cooked to a golden brown.
The secret ingredient is ricotta cheese because it provides a similar texture to the rice traditionally found in this recipe.
If you don’t have bell peppers, you can use red or yellow peppers instead.

What Goes With Stuffed Peppers, though? We recommend some veggie spaghetti or keto garlic bread.

The possibilities are endless when you’re making your spaghetti noodles.

Nothing goes together quite like chicken, bacon, and ranch, and this casserole proves it.
The secret ingredient in this dish is the ranch dressing, as it elevates the flavor of this dish to something fierce!

Feel free to experiment with your preferred flavors to make this dish your own. If you don’t have parmesan cheese to cover the sausage with, try using mozzarella cheese instead.
