I know early January is the time when many people are starting a low-carb eating plan or looking for low-carb meal ideas to get back on track. And easy tasty low-carb dinners that are quick to get on the table after a day at work have to be helpful for anyone who’s eating low-carb or Keto.

So I looked through my archives and picked out 20 favorites for this collection of My Favorite Quick-and-Easy Low-Carb Dinners. I focused on easy one-dish meals that can be made in 30 minutes, but some might take a little longer, and you might want a side dish with a few of these.

All the quick and easy dinners you find here are gluten-free and low in carbs, and most are also Keto and South Beach Diet friendly as well. I hope some of these recipes will be just what you need to add some interest to your low-carb dinner rotation!

For everyone who likes spicy Sriracha Sauce, these Low-Carb Sriracha Beef Lettuce Wraps are a quick dinner you’ll make over and over. You can use a bit less Sriracha Sauce if you don’t want so much heat.

Asian Lettuce Cups with Spicy Ground Turkey Filling are another quick lettuce wrap dinner that’s not quite so spicy.

Cauliflower cooks super-fast in the Instant Pot which makes this Instant Pot Low-Carb Loaded Cauliflower Soup one of the quickest Instant Pot recipes on the blog. If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can also cook this on the stovetop, but that will take a little longer.

Another pretty quick soup in the Instant Pot is Instant Pot Low-Carb Soup with Ground Beef, Green Beans, and Tomatoes.

For Italian sausage fans, a sheet pan meal that’s super easy and quick is this Low-Carb Roasted Italian Sausage and Mini Peppers Sheet Pan Meal. I like turkey Italian sausage, but if you’re eating Keto you could use pork sausage.

Another quick low-carb dinner with Italian sausage is Grilled Sausage and Summer Squash with Herbs, Capers, Kalamata Olives, and Lemon. You can cook this on a Stovetop Grill Pan (affiliate link) if it’s not grilling weather.

Chicken and Roasted Asparagus with Tahini Sauce is easy and amazing. If you don’t have Tahini and don’t want to buy it just for this recipe, just use peanut butter in the sauce instead!

If you marinate the chicken in the fridge while you’re at work, Low-Carb Chicken Nuggets with Mustard, Almond, and Parmesan are pretty fast to cook when you get home.

I absolutely love this Instant Pot Chunky Pasta Sauce with Sausage, Tomatoes, and Herbs, and you can make the zucchini noodles while the sauce cooks in the Instant Pot.

If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you could make Spicy Cherry Tomato Sauce for Zucchini Noodles on the stove.

  1. These sound delicious can’t wait to try the spicy ones

  2. Hi Kalyn, i’ve shared your sight with my daughter, who also is trying to eat low carb, your recipes are AMAZINGLY GOOD!! Cabbage taco bowl & cauliflower soup( I don’t use cream cheese) are my favorites, there all sooo good, I appreciate you and your recipes, Nancy

  3. My husband and I are trying to eat fewer simple carbs, and this website is very helpful! Your recipes look great! Thank you for taking the time to share them with us. 

  4. I make your Easy Baked Pesto Chicken all the time. It is such a crowd pleaser and so easy to make. Thank you for sharing your recipes. I just love your website. 

  5. This is truly the best website I have seen in a very long time.  I use it daily!  I have shared it with a lot of friends and your food is delicious.  I am trying to lose 25 lbs on a South Beach (low carb, high protein) diet that I am cooking for myself and am SO glad I found you!!!!!!

    • Aw, you are so sweet. That’s the nicest comment I’ve had in a long time! Good luck with the weight loss; you can do it! And I know South Beach/Low-Carb will work if you stick with it.

  6. Do any of your recipes list the amount of carbs that are in them?

    • I’m not able to provide nutritional information for the recipes for several reasons, including the additional time it takes, the difficulty in doing it accurately, and the sheer number of recipes on my site. If you look after the recipe itself, I give two links (where it says “Nutritional Information”) for suggestions of two ways to get that information. That’s all I can do at this time.

      However, I’ve been a carb-conscious eater for many years, so I am well aware of what foods are low in carbs. Just can’t edit over 2,200 recipes to add that info, and I know once I do it on one recipe people will expect to see it on every recipe.
