I myself do not follow a plant-based keto diet, but rather more on the animal side of things, and I eat more protein than most here, but I do try to get more Olive and Avocado oil by cooking with them. I've also heard that folks use salads as an oil delivery method. If you do add basmati rice, I would check to see what that does to your ketones - some can get away with more carbs, and some even do better, depending on genetic makeup etc. If you are 4/4 then I would try to limit carbs as much as you can. Are you not allowed animal protein? If you can, and the other options are not working, then I would try to introduce some pasture raised eggs. Without carbs, this protein should not raise your blood sugar very much, and they have good things for 4/4s.
