These Keto Lunch Sandwiches with Avocado and Smoky Tofu are super flavorful and ready in just 10 minutes! They’re the perfect combination of healthy fats, protein and fiber: great to beat sugar cravings and stay energized until dinnertime.

If you prefer ‘proper’ keto bread, check out the recipe for Almond Bread (1.4 g net carbs per slice) from my book Go Keto

Keto Lunch Sandwich with Sweet Potato

7 x Keto Lunch Sandwich with Grilled Zucchini


  1. Cut the zucchini in slices of 0.5 to 1 centimeter. Grill in a pan with olive oil (or coconut oil/butter). You could also bake them in a pre-heated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 10 minutes until ‘al dente’.
  2. Season with pepper and salt when the zucchini is done (so the vegetable ‘sandwiches’ don’t get soggy).
  3. In the meantime, slice the tomato, cucumber, tofu and avocado.
  4. Assemble the sandwiches by topping the grilled zucchini with avocado, tofu, cucumber, tomato, baby spinach and sprouts. Top with a second slice of grilled zucchini and secure with a wooden stick or toothpick. You could also add a spoonful of your favorite dipping sauce like this romesco sauce or pesto.
