10 Easy Low-carb Dishes You Can't Muck Up

Zucchini Lasagna: Replace traditional lasagna noodles with thin slices of zucchini. Layer with ground beef (or turkey) tomato sauce, ricotta, and mozzarella cheese, then bake until bubbly.

Cauliflower Fried Rice: Pulse cauliflower in a food processor until it resembles rice grains. Sauté with garlic, onions, peas, carrots, and eggs, then season with soy sauce for a low-carb take on a classic dish.

Stuffed Bell Peppers: Hollow out bell peppers and fill them with a mixture of ground meat, cauliflower rice, tomatoes, and spices. Bake until the peppers are tender and the filling is cooked through.

Chicken Avocado Salad: Mix diced chicken breast with avocado, celery, red onion, and cilantro. Dress with lime juice and olive oil for a refreshing and filling salad.

Baked Salmon with Asparagus: Place salmon fillets and asparagus spears on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice, season with salt and pepper, and bake until the salmon is flaky and the asparagus is tender.

Egg Roll in a Bowl: Sauté ground pork (or chicken) with cabbage, carrots, garlic, and ginger. Season with soy sauce and sesame oil for a deconstructed version of an egg roll, minus the wrapper.

Spinach and Feta Stuffed Chicken: Butterfly chicken breasts and fill them with a mixture of spinach, feta cheese, and garlic. Secure with toothpicks and bake until the chicken is cooked through.

Shrimp and Zoodles: Sauté shrimp with garlic, then add spiralized zucchini noodles and cook until just tender. Toss with pesto or a squeeze of lemon juice for a light and tasty meal.

Beef Stir-Fry: Thinly slice beef and stir-fry with your choice of low-carb vegetables (like broccoli, bell peppers, and mushrooms) in a mix of soy sauce, garlic, and ginger.

Broccoli Cheese Soup: Sauté onions and garlic in butter, then add chicken broth and chopped broccoli. Simmer until the broccoli is tender, then blend with cheddar cheese and heavy cream for a smooth and creamy soup.
