Vegan Choices : Lower Carb Recipe Suggestions

As regular readers know, this blog brings a variety of articles, studies, thoughts, music and recipes! It is presented in a magazine style - we hope something for everyone. Our main focus is about the Low Carb Higher (Healthy) Fat lifestyle, LCHF for short, and you can read/find out more about that here

In recent months we have seen that more and more we have regular readers, and followers, who choose to eat vegetarian or vegan. I recently posted five vegetarian meal choices
here, today I post some vegan choices.


Falafels
Plant-based alternative to meat that's low-carb, high-protein and tastes great.
Just switch the spices for the falafel to make Italian; Greek; or Mexican flavoured keto vegan meals.
All versions are easy to make and freeze well.

Kebab Wraps with Garlic Sauce
These colourful low-carb vegan kebab wraps are a healthy and delicious plant-based protein source.
Perfect for lunch or dinner, a low-carb twist on a Middle Eastern delicacy.

Tempeh Burger with Portobello Bun

Tender, juicy and flavourful tempeh patties are topped with juicy fixings
and cradled between an easy Portobello mushroom bun.

Vegan power-balls with courgetti and cashew cheese
This popular recipe, uses ready-made courgetti, (or make your own), a tangy no-cook tomato sauce,

flowers just go with any meal don't they!

Mouth-watering!

Lorrie said...

These look delicious. Usually vegetarian meals are so high carb that I avoid them, but I'm going to look for the pea powder to make the falafel.

Laurie said...

Hi Jan, Greetings from Seattle! As you may know, we here in Washington State had the first case of Covid-19 in the USA. Our State Governor issued a “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order when we went on lockdown. I smiled as I was looking over your post here because our Governor would probably like to have included some of the dishes in his order. :-) They all look so healthy and delicious. A very nice post indeed. Well, you recently left a kind comment for me on my blog, John’s Island. I always appreciate your comments because they are kind and positive. Thank you so much! It was good to hear that all is well with you & family in the UK. I’m sending you best wishes from Seattle. Stay safe and be well. John

Sandra Cox said...

Oh my. I think I could gobble down all of these. Thanks for featuring.
Stay safe. Stay healthy.

Caty said...

Great recipes !! Love specially the spinach soupe.
Thanks so much for sharing
Have a great new week
Big hugs, Caty

Miss Val's Creations said...

All yummy treats! We have attempted falafel making a couple of times. It has never come out quite like a restaurant. We tried a great boxed mix that was super delicious but our tummies did not not like it afterwards! Someday we will get it right. I wonder if the spices have to be just right to make digestion easy.

Debbie said...

i had falafel once and i did not care for it, it was spicy!! the spinach soup would definitely hit the spot for me, i love soup!!

gloriadelpilar_1994@yahoo.com said...
