Whether you’re following a ketogenic diet, avoiding sugar, or just looking to cut out some gluten (we get it, it’s been a bread-heavy couple of years), we’ve got the best low-carb recipes for you. These breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes are so good, you won't miss the bread, pasta, or grains at all. Finally, you can cut the carbs without losing the flavor or convenience!
And we promise, they’re not all cauliflower. While some of our favorites do rely on that magical brassica, like this “mac” & cheese, we’ve also got tons of recipes that let other ingredients (zucchini, butternut squash, broccoli) shine. For example, we’re big fans of anything that replaces carbs with cheesy, eggy goodness, like these breakfast enchiladas. Another fantastic breakfast innovation—keto granola (so good for when you’re really missing cereal!). Zoodles are another favorite, especially when we expand beyond zucchini, like in these butternut squash noodles. And with our fast food- or deli-inspired dishes, you won’t even miss the bun.

Keep things simple with fresh tomatoes and basil, or get creative. Sautéed peppers and onions, sliced olives, cooked and crumbled sausage. Ham and pineapple? Why not! And pepperoni is always a good call—and you can even buy a vegan version if someone at your table doesn’t eat meat.

The bacon adds savory saltiness and crunch on top, the almond flour acts as a perfect nutty binder, and soy sauce packs a punch of umami you never knew meatloaf could have. With all this fantastic flavor already at the party, you won’t think twice about missing the bread crumbs or ketchup.

Mahi Mahi is firm, mild fish that is beautifully flaky and tender no matter the way you cook it. Our favorite way to prep it? Cook it on the stove with some fresh asparagus, and then smother it in a lemony butter sauce. Pair it with some extra lemon wedges, a savory roasted green like balsamic parm roasted green beans and some ultra creamy mashed cauliflower.

Burrata salad is like Caprese salad's fancy cousin. Peak-summer tomatoes are topped with this luscious cheese (think a shell of mozzarella filled with a soft, creamy filling) and garnished with a shower of peppery basil leaves and savory chives. Instead of layering the tomatoes with the cheese, you'll top the tomatoes with the torn burrata, allowing the cheese's creamy interior to mix with the tomato juices.

Those who say that good things take time have clearly never grilled a tuna steak. Once the grill is preheated, tuna steaks take around 5 minutes to grill. The secret to a steak that’s beautifully rare on the inside is a ripping hot grill. This ensures that when the fish hits the hot grates, it'll sear, not stick. Serve the grilled tuna steak over an arugula salad, or instead of traditional canned tuna in a Niçoise salad.

Yes, seriously, avocados get even better when quickly cooked on the grill. Grilling not only gives them a charred and smoky flavor, but it makes them incredibly tender and extra creamy. You can eat grilled avocado simply dressed with lime juice and salt, or with a slightly spicy garlic-oregano dressing as we do here, but these do well in any recipe that calls for avocado. Try grilled avocado in guacamole, avocado-tomato salad, or taco-stuffed.
