Can you get enough nutrients if you’re on a low carb diet but are also a vegetarian? Sure you can. This Greek-style keto vegetarian superfood bowl with smashed feta is an easy way to get more nutrient dense low-carb foods into your diet.

Nutrient-dense foods are rich in protein, vitamins, and/or minerals. Although there are lots nutrient-dense animal foods like beef, as far as nutrition per calorie is concerned, vegetables — particularly leafy green vegetables like spinach — actually have the highest nutrient density score. Apart from electrolytes, this meal is high in vitamins including vitamin C, B6, A, K1 and folate.

I absolutely love this bowl. Enjoy it as it is or feel free to top with your favourite meat or fish if you prefer and cut back on the feta.

Instructions

  1. Prepare the tomatoes, cucumbers and feta by mixing all the ingredients together in 3 separate small bowls. Alternatively, if you’re in a rush, you can just mix them all together in one bowl. Super tasty either way.
  2. Spiralize the zucchini into noodles or use a julienne peeler to make thin strips.

  4. Place the spinach, olives, zucchini noodles, avocado, cucumber, feta and tomatoes in a bowl. Top with toasted seeds.
