30 Keto Chinese Recipes

Finding a good Chinese menu for your health may be difficult when you’re on a low-carb and keto diet. Despite the abundance of veggies in Chinese cuisine, they are frequently cooked with ingredients like noodles and rice and sauces containing sugar and starch to give them a Chinese flavor. As a result, the meal is doughy and fried, making your keto journey a little more difficult. But we are here to help you, which is why we have created a list of 30 Chinese recipes that are keto and delicious simultaneously.

Can We Eat Chinese Food On A Keto Diet?

Fortunately, the answer is yes. Although you are on a keto diet, you can still enjoy Chinese food, but you have to pay attention to a few things.

  • Build your menu. Many restaurants will let you choose your ingredients, which can help you eliminate any unwanted carbs from your plate.
  • Avoid sugary sauces. 
  • Watch out for breaded meat. Lots of Chinese meat is breaded. This can add a lot of carbs to your daily intake. So stick to boiled, sauteed, or grilled meat when possible.
  • Many Chinese dishes come with steamed white rice garnish. You can ask for the main course without this starchy garnish or replace it with a keto variant like cauliflower rice to keep keto food.

Are There Chinese Recipes That Are Fully Low Carb?

Unfortunately, finding a Chinese dish that is completely low-carb or keto is difficult. And that’s because Chinese food often contains that sticky sauce with too much sugar.

But the recipes that follow in the list below will help you enjoy Chinese food without being kicked out of keto.

Main Ingredients That Are Needed In Keto Chinese Recipes

  • Pork Rinds – for breaded chicken.
  • Brown Sugar Substitutes
  • Soy Sauce
  • Coconut Oil – for frying.
  • Xanthan Gum – it helps to make that sauce tasty and sticky.

Tips For Making The Best Keto Chinese Recipes At Home

  • Make sure you use ingredients as fresh as possible and with minimal carbohydrates.
  • Feel free to add your favorite veggies or seasonings to make it your way.
  • Any leftovers should be stored in airtight containers in the refrigerator or freezer.
