Every week we spotlight low-carb recipes you might want to try over the weekend, and these 10 Low-Carb Bowl Meals You’ll Make Over and Over are dinners I make often that are perfect for a school-night meal. Use the Diet-Type Index to find more low-carb and gluten-free recipes like these. And check after the photos for a few more options for meals in a bowl!
School has started here, so I know families with kids in school are thinking about easy dinners to make on a week night. 10 Low-Carb Bowl Meals You’ll Make Over and Over are all dinners I’ve been making for years, and I think this kind of meal is great when you’re cooking for a group because everyone can assemble the bowl with the ingredients they prefer. I make my bowl meals with cabbage slaw, cauliflower rice, or spaghetti squash as the bottom layer, and interesting combinations of meat and veggies layered on top to finish the bowl, but you can serve the toppings for the bowl inside a tortilla or in pita bread for some family members if they’d like that better!
I absolutely love this type of dinner, and I’m updating this collection to remind you about bowl meals as a school-night dinner. And of course I keep coming up with more and more ideas for meals in a bowl, so check after the photos for a few more options your family might like!
And remember that you don’t assemble the bowl until you’re going to eat it, so some of these also work perfectly to eat some now, then take some for lunch the next day, (unless you have a big family who eats it all in one meal!) There are bowl meals here that use the slow cooker or the Instant Pot, and some that don’t need anything except a stove. And this is a pretty international collection, with some great flavors going on. Hope you enjoy trying some of my favorite bowl meals!
A newer bowl meal on the blog is this delicious Instant Pot Low-Carb Green Chile Pork Taco Bowl. You can also make the pork in a slow cooker if you don’t have an Instant Pot.
My sister Sandee and her husband Clayton love this recipe for Fish Taco Cabbage Bowls.
Buffalo Chicken fans will swoon over this Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker Buffalo Chicken Cauliflower Rice Bowl!
I would literally never get tired of this Low-Carb Ground Beef Cauliflower Rice Taco Bowl for dinner! You could use the ground beef mixture to make tacos for the kids if you’d like.
Green Chile Shredded Beef Cabbage Bowl is amazing, and you can make this in the slow cooker or the Instant Pot. This is another option where the beef would be great in tortillas.
Slow Cooker (or Pressure Cooker) Buffalo Chicken and Blue Cheese Cabbage Bowl is another winner for the Buffalo chicken and blue cheese fans!
This Greek Salad Spaghetti Squash Bowl is one of the more unique bowl meal combinations I’ve come up with. But it works, and this is delicious!
Spaghetti Squash Low-Carb Taco Bowl has all the flavors you love in tacos, served in a bowl with spaghetti squash. And again, the ground beef could make tacos for the kids and low-carb bowl meals for the adults!
And finally, This Slow Cooker Cauliflower Rice Greek Chicken Bowl has all the flavors you love in Greek Chicken and Greek Salad, combined with cauliflower rice.
