Here at Delish, we believe that side dishes (or the unfortunate lack thereof) can make or break a meal. It’s never more true than when you’re eating an alternative diet, like keto or low-carb. Whether you’re new to keto or it’s old hat, we bet you’re feeling pretty solid about your protein choices, like beef or chicken. Maybe you’ve even got breakfast down too. If you’re anything like us, though, we bet sometimes you struggle with what to serve with your main dish. Trust us, adding the right accompaniment can take your keto meal next level. Get inspired with our list of 30+ stellar low-carb side dishes to go with your next meal.

If you’re familiar with keto, you know it’s all about the meat, eggs, and cheese. Don’t get us wrong, we know that’s one of the best parts of the diet, but when we’re talking side dishes, we like to branch out into low-carb veggies too. Brussels sprouts, mushrooms, and spinach go with pretty much everything, and are available largely year-round. Fresh vegetables are great at replacing some of our old high-carb standbys too, like cauliflower for bread and carrots for potatoes. Not a huge vegetable fan? We aren't judging. Get your greens in and enjoy it by topping them with copious amounts of cheese.

Cheese… or bacon! You can wrap bacon around pretty much anything, and turn it into a delicious partner for whatever your main meal may be. Having a burger? Go with bacon onion rings. Mexican food? Try bacon avocado “fries”. It really goes with everything from biscuits to cauliflower soup with ease.

Once you’ve got dinner and side dishes down, try one of our easy keto desserts!
