7 Low Carb High Protein Vegan Recipes - Title Image | Hurry The Food Up

Low carb, high protein vegan recipes are hard to come by, but are super useful in diets aimed at weight loss.

The reason it can be hard to find low carb high protein vegan foods is because many key vegan protein sources are also quite carb heavy.

Take beans for example. For every 15g of protein in pinto beans, there are 45g of carbohydrates. Compared to eggs, this is a lot of carbs! For every 15g of protein in eggs, there are only 1.4g of carbs.

But never fear! It is possible! We have managed to find 7 low carb vegan recipes that are also high in protein.

The secret to low carb high protein vegan recipes

When compiling these recipes we have made sure to pick recipes with a very specific nutritional profile.

Each recipe has at least 15g of protein and less than 20g of carbohydrates.

We have also made sure that the fat content is low (an extra bonus!). None of these recipes have any more than 25g of fat, of which no more than 10g are saturated fats!

So, what’s on the table?

Tofu is going to be your best friend when making low carb high protein vegan breakfast, lunch or dinner!

It has a great nutritional profile for a low carb high protein vegan diet: for every 15g protein, only 3.75g carbs.

Those versatile little white chunks can be used with basically any flavour combo, at any time of day! Try a tasty vegan tofu scramble for breakfast, or some rich, spicy peanut butter sriracha tofu for lunch or dinner.

If you’re looking for super high protein vegan recipes, then you’re probably going to have to use a vegan protein powder at some point.

These are great to add to smoothies for an extra strong boost of protein at breakfast or to tide you over as a snack. Try this avocado fitness smoothie to see what we’re talking about!
