From breakfast to dinner, tofu is so versatile you can find all sorts of ways to incorporate it into your keto diet. 

Keto Tofu with Broccoli in a Bowl

Turn it into a fluffy egg-free scramble or toss it in a brothy soup. You can even bake it and make it the main protein of any dish. 

Skip the mess of meat and dairy and go keto with these tofu recipes.

1. Crispy Baked Tofu (Keto!) 

Crispy baked tofu will be your plant-based protein of choice for everything. 

These crispy and tender squares get a bath of sesame oil, coconut aminos, and tamari, which is lower in carbs than regular soy sauce.

Dredge them in coconut flour to crisp them right up.

This is a far healthier alternative to deep frying and you can store it in the fridge for a week or so. 

So when hunger strikes, simply heat those tofu bites and add them to your meal of choice.

2. Crispy Keto Firecracker Tofu 

Add some heat to your plate with crispy firecracker tofu.

Part sweet, part spicy, this Asian-inspired dish has a delightfully balanced sauce. 

Thanks to the Sriracha and Frank’s hot sauce, it doubles up on the heat.

Use a heaping of Brown Sugar Swerve to sweeten it up without calories or sugar.

Then, smother that all over the crispy baked tofu!

The one substitution I recommend is ditching the cornstarch and arrowroot for a keto-friendly alternative like xanthan gum or coconut flour. 

It will help crisp up the tofu while reducing the carbs.

3. Tofu Stir-Fry

There are so many reasons to add this stir-fry to your normal keto routine.

It’s nutritious, savory, gluten-free, vegan, low-carb, and super quick.

If you’ve got 15 minutes, you can create this mouthwatering stir-fry that’s full of mushrooms, broccoli, onions, and tofu. 

I like to add some bell peppers, cauliflower, and bok choy to mine for more nutrients and color. 

The secret to getting crispy pan-fried tofu is using extra firm and pressing it first. The more water you squeeze out, the better it will crisp. 

4. Crispy Air Fryer Tofu

Perhaps the best and easiest way to cook tofu is with the air fryer.

Those delicious tofu squares get cooked to perfection each and every time. 

Like all crispy tofu recipes, you’ll want to press your tofu first and use extra firm if you can.

To spruce up the flavor, add some gluten-free soy, sesame oil, and chili garlic paste. 

While the tofu is frying, you can prepare the rest of your dish.

Keto-friendly side dishes like oven-roasted veggies, cauliflower rice, and even parmesan green beans are a good choice.

5. Keto Teriyaki Tofu

Missing teriyaki because you’ve gone keto? Use this recipe for the Asian sauce you crave. 

Take out the sugar, lower the carbs, and you have a keto-friendly teriyaki you’ll want to slather all over tofu. 

You start by replacing the soy sauce with coconut aminos. Then, ditch the brown sugar for a zero sugar alternative like erythritol. 

I admit erythritol sounds more like a science experiment than an ingredient.

But it’s a type of sugar alcohol that’s used as a low-calorie sweetener. 

When you add it to this sauce, it balances out the flavors turning this into a very umami teriyaki. 

6. Crispy Keto Fried Tofu Sticks

Looking for a simple tofu recipe with a short ingredient list? Crispy keto tofu sticks will be right up your alley. 

These 30-minute tofu sticks are a fun meal the entire family will be on board with. 

Almond flour gives them a crunch and air frying lets you cut down on the oil.

Trade in the soy sauce for coconut aminos and you’ll reduce your carb intake. 

For dipping, I suggest pairing this with a keto-friendly vegan mayo or a low-carb garlic chili sauce. You can even just give it a squeeze of lemon. 

7. Spicy Almond Tofu

This spicy almond tofu is a play on Asian peanut butter sauce, except infused with umami flavors the keto way. 

You need some raw almonds, spices, chili sauce, sesame oil, and liquid aminos for the sauce. 

Pour it over your golden brown tofu along with some broccoli and it’s dinner time! 

It’s a fun take on Asian cuisine that’s creamy, spicy, and healthy, too.

8. Tofu Scramble 

Racking your brain for a keto-friendly breakfast not heavy on eggs or bacon? A tofu scramble like this is a great solution.

It’s incredible how a handful of ingredients can turn tofu into a glowing scramble. 

A dash of nutritional yeast, paprika, and turmeric is the ideal combination for sprucing up the eggs.

Add some onions, garlic, and herbs, then it’s breakfast time!

I like to use silken tofu for a more soft eggy texture, but use whatever you have on hand.

You can also add any veggies you like as long as they’re low-carb.

9. Vegan Keto Tofu Noodle Soup 

Not only is this tofu soup keto, but it’s also a wholesome bowl for when you need to hit the reset button.

Big cubes of tofu are bobbing in a clear broth with some crunchy sprouts, cabbage, and carrots.

While rice noodles are out of the question, shirataki noodles aren’t!

These miracle noodles from the konjac plant are low in carbs and calories, so you can slurp them up and not feel an ounce of guilt.

10. Tofu Tikka Masala 

Tikka masala is one of those flavorful Indian dishes you won’t have to give up just because you’re now keto.

You can enjoy that cozy bowl thanks to this recipe.

You’ll smother tofu cubes with a rich, pungent tomato sauce and a handful of veggies.

Although you’ll have to ditch the flatbread and white rice, this is still excellent ladled over a bed of cauliflower rice.
