Vegan Keto Caesar Salad

Vegan Keto Kale Caesar Salad

by Maggie Jones

Caesar salad without the croutons is a classic vegetarian keto restaurant staple. The cheese and egg mean its off the menu for my way of eating, though.

This recipe captures everything I love about Caesar – including the crunch of the croutons – while pumping up the nutrition and eliminating the inflammatory dairy.

Olive oil, capers and garlic create a classic foundation and all have strong anti-cancer credentials. Nutritional yeast stands in for cheese while miso paste and dulse flakes contribute the fishy umami flavor that defines Caesar dressing. Tahini and lemon round things out with a creamy tang.

Feel free to adjust the proportions or even swap out ingredients based on your preference. This recipe is all about creating something delicious for you.

I’ve always prefered kale to romaine in my Caesars and the sturdiness of the leaf holds up well to this thick, creamy dressing. Massaging the dressing into the kale softens the texture and perks up the flavor. I don’t even have to mention all the health benefits of this plant that checks both the “cruciferous vegetable” and “dark, leafy green” boxes.

Rich umami flavors make this Vegan Keto Kale Caesar Salad a family favorite.

If you haven’t discovered Flackers yet, they’re a vegan keto miracle: organic flax seeds seasoned with organic apple cider vinegar and dehydrated into a crispy cracker with no net carbs. They give this salad a satisfying crunch. Plain flax seeds, pumpkin or sunflower seeds would also work nicely. Just don’t forget the avocado. Or try adding a tablespoon or two of fried capers – they’re powerful antioxidants.
