Spicy – Cheesy Broccoli and Riced Cauliflower – Low Carb Keto Casserole
Welcome all! Papa G here. Today I
present a wonderful side dish to help
spice up your next meal. My spicy, cheesy, low carbohydrate broccoli and rice cauliflower.
With just a little over three net carbohydrates
per serving, it’s the perfect complement
for any low carbohydrate entree. Let’s get
started. I’m gonna take the easy way out
I’m gonna take the easy way out here and use some [re-riced cauliflower and pre-cut broccoli. If you’re using
fresh vegetables, you’ll need about two
and a half cups of riced cauliflower and
about three cups of bite-sized broccoli
florets. As I said, we need bite-sized
florets; so if your pre-cut broccoli is as
large like these, we’ll need to chop them
into smaller pieces. Place the broccoli
in a large mixing bowl and add the riced
cauliflower. Set this aside as we work on
the cheese sauce. To a saucepan on medium
high heat, add four tablespoons of
unsalted butter. Let that melt just a bit
and then add two cups of heavy cream.
Give that a mix. When the butter is fully
melted, add some xanthan gum. Whisk until
the xanthan gum is fully incorporated.
We’ll season our sauce with some salt;
ground black pepper; a healthy amount of
onion powder; some garlic powder; a little
dried mustard powder; basil; sage; and
finally some cayenne pepper. Give that a
whisk to mix in. Bring the sauce to a
small simmer, then reduce the heat to low
and add about one and a half cups of
shredded pepper jack cheese.
Whisk until the cheese is fully melted.
Add the cheese sauce to the vegetables
and mix thoroughly until combined.
Add the mixture to an 8 by 11 inch
casserole dish and top with some
finely grated cheddar cheese. Place in
the middle of a preheated 350°F
oven for about 35 to 40 minutes. When
it’s done, let cool for about 10 minutes.
After it’s cooled down a bit, top with
some dried chives. Serve warm and enjoy
some spicy cheesy goodness! There you
have it folks!
