These Bruschetta Stuffed Avocados are a quick keto snack when you’re craving something fresh and full of flavor. Pair with a protein for an easy low carb meal.
These Bruschetta Stuffed Avocados are the perfect vegetarian keto lunch.
With juicy tomatoes, savory kalamata olives, meaty artichoke hearts, salty capers, avocado oil, balsamic, fresh garlic, onion powder, sea salt, and black pepper, there’s no shortage of flavor in this low carb bruschetta. Stuffing this low carb bruschetta recipe into an avocado adds some more healthy fat and fiber to make this a satisfying dish that will really stick to your ribs. It’s the perfect vegan, vegetarian and even Whole30, keto recipe.
But aren’t tomatoes high in carbs?
Tomatoes add such a fresh element to dishes, which is probably why you’ll find so many low carb tomato recipes on my site. While tomatoes are higher in carbs and natural sugars that some other fruits and vegetables you might enjoy, you can still work them into a low carb diet, and you can definitely make room for tomatoes on keto.
While this Bruschetta Stuffed Avocado recipe has 21.8g total carbs per serving, there’s a good bit of fiber from the avocados: only 9.2g net carbs per serving.
Yes, you can have tomatoes on keto, and this recipe is a great way to enjoy them. Plus, I will never be the one to demonize fresh fruits and vegetables. I can honestly tell you that it wasn’t tomatoes that contributed to my life long struggles with my weight. Don’t blame the butter for what the bread did, so to speak. Or in this case, don’t blame the tomatoes for what the chips did.
Make this a full meal by adding your favorite protein
Want to boost the protein in this dairy free keto recipe and turn this paleo bruschetta into a full meal? Just add your favorite protein. I like to add rotisserie chicken, or even some sautéed shrimp. For a more deconstructed option, just grill up some chicken breasts and serve alongside these stuffed avocados. You could also remix this recipe entirely and make my Avocado Taco Boats.
