Four Great Cheese and Broccoli Recipes That Aren’t Soup!
Yesterday, we spoke about how good canned veggies can be for your health. However, some people always stick to fresh vegetables. We’ve talked before about how much we like broccoli and how it can aid blood sugar. The mini trees are in season, so we want to share four delicious low-carb broccoli recipes. Even if you aren’t a huge fan of broccoli, hopefully, one of these recipes will spark your fancy and become a favorite dish in your kitchen. Maybe the cheese will make you enamored with it!
Broccoli and Cheese Fritters
We love these fritters. They are pan-fried in just a little oil, so they are healthier for you than most fried things. We add slightly more seasoning than they suggest so that there is no need for dipping sauce. Play around with it and see what works for you. A serving has 204 calories, 5.8 grams of carbs, three grams of fiber and 12 grams of protein. Get the recipe.
Broccoli Salad with Bacon
This salad, with bacon, cheese and a ranch dressing might be perfect for you if you don’t like broccoli. We love that it has nuts and cheese for protein and that it’s a non-cook, fast dish. When we make it, we usually cut down on the amount of dressing. However, that’s a personal preference, it will — of course — make a difference to the nutritional value of the salad. A serving has 267 calories, seven grams of carbs, two grams of fiber, and 12 grams of protein. Get the recipe.
Broccoli Cheese Casserole
This saucy dish is decadent. The website says you can make it ahead, we disagree. Broccoli that’s precooked and left to sit doesn’t appeal to us. The smell changes. That’s just our opinion, you might disagree. However, it also doesn’t save you much time at all, so we say make this on the day. As this recipe stands, it’s 283 calories a serving with 10 grams of carbs, three grams of fiber and 12 grams of protein. Get the recipe.
Broccoli and Cauliflower Gratin with Sausage
We love fast dinners that don’t need side dishes. When the whole meal is cooked together, it’s easy to get dinner on the table and this is a go-to recipe for us. It’s pretty high in calories, but it’s the whole meal. A serving has 498 calories, 16 grams of carbs, four grams of fiber and 18 grams of protein. Get the recipe.
These recipes are so delicious, and we hope you try them soon. They might become regulars in your dinner line up while the weather is bleak, and the vegetable is in season!
