Roasted Green Vegetables
All you need to make these simple keto sides is some avocado or olive oil, salt and pepper, a few spices, and a sheet pan. And if you’re cooking for a family, I recommending making these veggie ideas, adding an additional starchy side for the non-keto family members, and cooking a shared keto dinner entree.
Sauteed veggies are some of my favorite keto side dishes — the browning and caramelization is so irresistible! You can do it with all kinds of vegetables, from cabbage and mushrooms to radishes and zucchini… and more.
