1. Top 10 Low Carb & Keto Vegetables

These top 10 best keto & low carb vegetables are some of the best choices for your low carb kitchen.
In comparison to other vegetables, they’re especially low in carbs, have a higher amount of micronutrients and they’re incredibly versatile.
  1. Avocado
    Avocados are technically a fruit, but most of us intuitively classify them as a vegetable.
    They are incredibly versatile and can be used for both sweet and savory recipes.

    Some of the most popular recipes are guacamole, egg salad with avocado or simply chopped as an addition for flavorful salads.
    Furthermore, they’re also a good source for potassium, vitamin C and folate.
  2. Broccoli
    Broccoli is always a good choice if you need a quick side dish.
    Steam and serve with butter or use it as an ingredient for casseroles, soups or even raw in salads.
    Broccoli contains high amounts of vitamin C and vitamin K1.
  3. Cauliflower
    Cauliflower is the not so secret star of every low carb kitchen.
    It’s a great low carb alternative for anything that’s usually made with potatoes and other starchy side dishes, for example as creamy cauliflower purée instead of mashed potatoes or cauliflower rice instead of normal rice.
    Similar to broccoli, cauliflower contains a lot of vitamin C and vitamin K1.
  4. Cabbage
    Cabbage is also a very popular ingredient in the low carb kitchen.
    It goes especially well with ground beef and can also be a great addition to a variety of soups, casseroles or salads.
    Just like cauliflower and broccoli, cabbage has a high amount of vitamin C, vitamin K1 and folate.
  5. Zucchini
  6. Thanks to its’ mild taste, zucchini is often used as a noodle replacement in pasta dishes.
    Zucchini can replace lasagna sheets in classic lasagna or spaghetti noodles in form of “zoodles”.
    Stuffed with ground beef it can also be a great main dish.
    Zucchinis contain high amounts of vitamin C.

  7. Spinach
    Spinach is a great addition to egg or curry dishes.
    It is also great as an ingredient in soups like our popular chicken egg drop soup.
    Spinach contains high amounts of vitamin K1 and ß-carotene, a precursor for vitamin A.
    It’s also a good source for magnesium and potassium.
  8. Bell Pepper
    Roasted bell pepper is a great side dish for savory keto and low carb recipes.
    Fresh bell pepper is perfect as an ingredient for salads or even just as it is with a dip.
    Bell peppers have huge amounts of vitamin C.
    They also contain quite a bit ß-carotene.
  9. Mushrooms
    Mushrooms and low carb diets are basically made for each other.
    They are a great side dish for savory keto and low carb recipes and are also great as an ingredient for soups and casseroles.
    Mushrooms often contain high amounts of specific B vitamins. They also contain potassium.
  10. Asparagus
    Roasted green asparagus is a popular side dish and tastes best with grilled meat, fish or bacon.
    Asparagus contains a lot of vitamin K1, ß-carotene and vitamin C.
