This healthy veggie laksa is one of my go-to low-carb meals that we have on a fairly frequent basis as it’s quick, delicious and adaptable depending on what you have on hand. You can mix up the veggies, as well at the protein — laksa is delicious with fresh prawns or shredded chicken.

A note on the laksa paste — look for a brand that does not have any added sugars or thickeners. If you can’t find one, use the same amount of red curry paste, or make your own (though it can be hard to find some of the ingredients, depending on where you live).

One serving will be enough as a main meal, half a serving as a starter. If you follow a strict keto diet, this veggie laksa may not be suitable for you. To make it more keto-friendly, you can stretch it to 6 servings by swapping the carrots for more zucchini and adding one more egg. This way you'll get to about 8 grams of carbs per serving.
