15 Keto Tofu Recipes

Are you still perplexed and on the hunt for keto-friendly tofu dishes? So, this is it. Here is a collection of 15 delicious Keto tofu recipes. This collection also includes dishes that are vegan, gluten-free, and healthy with tofu. If you have a good recipe for tofu, please send it our way.

1. Vegan Keto Coconut Curry

We don’t need much more evidence than this wonderful vegan keto coconut curry from Rodale’s The Essential Vegan Keto Cookbook.

The meal is loaded with a variety of nutritious veggies and soft chunks of tofu, and it bursts with the classic flavors of scallion, coconut milk, and cilantro. If you want to lick the bowl, we won’t tell anybody but we will turn a blind eye.

2. Keto Firecracker Tofu

I don’t frequently use the word “addictive” to describe a dish, but this one definitely does! Perfectly crispy on the exterior and tender on the inside, this Keto Firecracker Tofu is a sponge for the sweet and spicy firecracker sauce. You won’t be able to stop thinking about how good everything tastes. In addition to being low in carbohydrates, they are also suitable for vegetarians.

3. Black Pepper Tofu & Green Beans

My go-to vegan and gluten-free meal, Black Pepper Tofu with Green Beans, is finally here! There are only ten simple, widely available ingredients in this green bean tofu stir fry. The four-ingredient black pepper sauce is so simple to create, yet it elevates this dish to the level of best vegan weekday meal ever.

To tone down the heat, cut the black pepper to half a tablespoon (3 grams). Nonetheless, it will be scrumptious in every way!
Use low-sodium soy sauce or substitute vegetable broth or water for 2-3 tablespoons of the tamari to reduce the saltiness of the sauce.

4. Tofu Stir Fry

With this simple recipe, you can whip up a delicious tofu stir fry with a spicy and flavorful Asian sauce in no time. A meatless, low-carb dinner cooked in a pan.
Regular soy sauce from Kikkoman is what you should use. Alternatively, you might use coconut aminos or low-sodium soy sauce.
Add honey, brown sugar, or a sugar substitute, or use whatever sweetener you choose. For my sweetener of choice, I turn to erythritol, which has a minimal effect on glucose and insulin levels. Hot, with a side of Asian cucumber salad or chicken satay in peanut sauce.

5. Crispy Keto Fried Tofu Sticks

Have you been searching for a tofu dish that requires few ingredients? Keto tofu sticks with a crisp coating will be a welcome treat. The whole family will love these tofu sticks and they just take 30 minutes to prepare.

Their crispness comes from almond flour, and you may reduce the oil by air-frying them. By using coconut aminos for soy sauce, you can cut back on carbs.

You may use a low-carb garlic chili sauce or a vegan mayo that is safe for those on the ketogenic diet to dip it in. Just juice half a lemon over it.

6. Air Fryer Vegan Keto Korean Bbq-inspired Tofu Fries (Gluten-free, Low-carb)

When I found some homemade gochujang in the fridge, I knew I had to make air fryer vegan keto Korean BBQ tofu fries. These tofu fries, inspired by Korean BBQ, are air-fried to a crisp and packed with protein and little carbohydrates.
These would also be great if baked in the oven. The crispiness will be diminished, but the flavor will remain intact. Try baking them at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius) for about 25 minutes, and then check them every few minutes after that to ensure they don’t burn.

7. Low-carb Vegan Dinner Bowl

Cabbage, broccoli, kale, tofu, and a delectable almond satay sauce top this popular keto, low-carb vegan dish.

This is a great option for a low-carb, high-protein vegan lunch! It’s packed with protein-rich tofu, heart-healthy avocado, and low-carb cabbage “rice” for fullness without the guilt.

8. Teriyaki Tofu { Low Carb | Keto | GF }

Well, I guess I should start by addressing the most obvious problem. Does Keto Allow For Tofu? Not on keto, but I think it’s acceptable once in a while. The smokiness and saltiness of this dish are both noteworthy. It’s exceptional for tofu and totally different from anything else. All sorts of marinades may be made with this sauce; the possibilities are endless!

9. Sesame Tofu with Broccoli Recipe

Sesame tofu is a healthy alternative to other protein sources; simply air fry or bake it, then dip it with a sticky garlic ginger sesame sauce that contains no oil. Vegan, gluten-free, and baked till golden brown on the rims with maple syrup instead of honey.
Mixing tamari with water, vinegar, garlic, ginger, and sesame seeds is as easy as whisking. Add a little of maple syrup for sweetness and stickiness to strike a balance. Tapioca or cornstarch can be added to the pot to help it thicken as it simmers for only one minute. Just like that?!

10. Ultra Crispy Air Fryer Tofu

In just 13 minutes, you can have perfectly cooked, seasoned tofu in a super-crispy air fryer. Crispy and golden on the outside, with a tender within.

You can make crispy chickpeas, zucchini fries, and so much more with the help of an air fryer. Crispy tofu is one of our favorite uses for it.

Silken, standard, smoked, and extra firm tofu are just few of the various types available; all are formed from compressed soybean curds. To ensure the tofu maintains its form when cooking, use extra firm tofu.

11. Tofu Tikka Masala 

When switching to a ketogenic diet, you don’t have to give up all of your favorite Indian foods, and tikka masala is one of the few exceptions. A warm bowl of this may be yours, all due to this recipe.

You’ll use a thick, spicy tomato sauce and some vegetables to cover cubes of tofu. You won’t be able to enjoy this with the traditional flatbread and white rice, but it is still delicious when served over a bed of cauliflower rice.

12. Vegan Keto Tofu Noodle Soup 

This cup of tofu soup is not only appropriate for those following the keto diet, but it is also a healthful option for those times when you feel the need to “reset.”

Tofu, cut into large cubes, is floating in a transparent broth that also contains crunchy sprouts, cabbage, and carrots.

Shirataki noodles, on the other hand, are a perfectly reasonable alternative to rice noodles.

You don’t need to feel the least bit guilty about gorging on these miraculous noodles made from the konjac plant because they are low in both carbohydrates and calories.

13. Tofu Scramble 

Need a keto-friendly breakfast idea that doesn’t involve eggs or bacon? Scrambling tofu is a fantastic alternative.

Tofu may be transformed into a luminous scramble with just a few ingredients. Spice up your eggs with some savory nutritional yeast, paprika, and turmeric. Make it a complete breakfast by adding some onions, garlic, and herbs.

Personally, I find that using silken tofu gives the dish a more supple, eggy texture, but you may substitute whatever you have on hand. As long as they are low in carbs, you can add whichever vegetables you wish.

14. Simple Keto Mapo Tofu

You’ll find tofu, ground pork, and a robust, spicy sauce in this simplified version of the classic Chinese meal, mapo tofu. This dish simply requires one pot and can be cooked in under 30 minutes. The dish’s unusual sauce shines because to its bold tastes of chile, bean paste, and garlic.

You can have mapo tofu with steaming white rice, but if you’re watching your carb intake, try it on its own or with some plain fried cauliflower instead. Similarly, a simple green salad dressed with ginger might pair nicely with mapo tofu.

15. Keto Saag Paneer With Tofu

As a result of using tofu, this Keto Saag Paneer dish requires very little carbohydrates. Additionally, there are just 3g of net carbohydrates per serving. This vegetarian meal is a traditional Indian staple, and it delivers quite a punch.

I discovered an excellent Indian dish recipe on Serious Eats and adapted it for this low-carb version. It has fresh spinach and cauliflower, and since tofu is so easily accessible, I used that instead of the traditional Paneer Cheese.
