23 Super Satisfying Low-Carb Dinners

Low-carb doesn't have to be boring. It's amazing what you can do with a food processor, a head of cauliflower, and some cheese.

1. Pizza Frittata

2. Mediterranean Chicken Lettuce Wrap Tacos

3. Chicken Enchilada Stuffed Zucchini Boats

Tortillas are really just a delivery system for spicy, cheesy deliciousness, so why not use a vegetable instead? Recipe here.

4. Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs

If you think you don't like spaghetti squash, it's probably because you've never paired it with delicious melty cheese. Recipe here.

5. One-Pan Crispy Chicken and Brussels Sprouts

6. Shakshuka

Never heard of it? Shakshuka is a dish of baked eggs cooked into super flavorful tomato sauce, and you need to try it like, yesterday. Recipe here.

7. Flank Steak Salad

Salad for dinner is very appealing when there's steak involved. Recipe here.

8. Bacon-Cheddar Cauliflower Chowder

Loaded baked potato soup is delicious, but sometimes it can be a little much. Subbing cauliflower for potatoes makes this chowder lighter without leaving it thin. Recipe here.

9. Pesto Zucchini Spaghetti

Using thinly sliced zucchini as your "spaghetti" means you'll have extra room for bacon. Recipe here.

10. Cauliflower Pizza

Because you know what else is in that crust? CHEESE. Recipe here.

11. Salmon BLT Stacks

12. Chicken in Creamy Green Onion Sauce

13. Vietnamese Cauli-Fried Rice

Throw raw cauliflower into your food processor, pulse it a few times, and it becomes a magical rice substitute. Recipe here.

14. Cauliflower "Cous Cous" with Leeks and Sundried Tomatoes

The food processor trick also works for making cauliflower "cous cous." Recipe here.

15. Eggplant Pizza

16. Baked Turkey, Quinoa, and Zucchini Meatballs in Lettuce Wraps

17. Cheesy Baked Spaghetti Squash and Spinach

Attempting low-carb mac 'n' cheese is a BOLD MOVE, and probably impossible. So, take this dish for what it is: a delicious cheese and vegetable casserole. Recipe here.

18. Seared Scallops with Pancetta and Brussels Sprouts

Stop being afraid to cook scallops at home. It only takes five minutes, and all you need is a hot pan with some oil. Recipe here.

19. Paleo Crockpot Chili

This chili has no beans, but it's topped with avocado and bacon. I say that's a fair trade. Recipe here.

20. Asian Beef Lettuce Wraps

21. Feta Stuffed Turkey Meatloaf with Tzatziki Sauce

Instead of the breadcrumbs in traditional meatloaf, this recipe uses coconut flour to keep the meat moist and hold it together. Recipe here.

22. Savory Bacon Kale Frittata

23. Portabella and Halloumi "Burgers"

A low-carb and meatless dinner is tough to come by, but these mushroom and cheese sandwiches totally fit the bill. Recipe here.
