Low carb broccoli cheddar casserole

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

An oven dish is very easy! Everything in one bowl, help in the oven and then enjoy. Personally, I don't think broccoli is very pronounced in terms of taste. Of course you recognize the taste when you put it in your mouth, but just like cauliflower I think it is a bit “cowardly”. Well this dish gets some spice because we chili flakes to use! These dried pepper flakes give your broccoli casserole a lot of spice. Delicious Low carb broccoli chicken cheddar casserole from the oven

Broccoli Casserole
I used my antique enamel baking dish.

A low carb broccoli cheddar casserole is the good choice for those looking for a nutritious and low-carb meal. You have complete freedom in how much of each ingredient you add, although it is advisable not to sprinkle too liberally. We deliberately leave out pasta or potatoes from this dish, and surprisingly you won't miss it. This generously filled dish is packed with flavor in itself, thanks to the combination of broccoli, melting cheddar and other delicious herbs. Delicious for a cozy family dinner or as a warming meal on a cold evening.

You can vary the herbs in this broccoli casserole. I used the Italian spice mix, but you can also use my persillade spice mix, or greek spice mix. The cheddar cheese used melts well, but here too you are of course free to use other types of cheese. Try this oven dish with cauliflower, zucchini or bell pepper. You already read, the possibilities are endless. If you don't eat low-carb, you could mix cooked macaroni or boiled potatoes through the dish.

Here you will find the complete recipe with all the ingredients you need. I hope you have fun preparing the dish below.

A casserole with a kick! We give the broccoli a "kick" with dried chili flakes. Sprinkle in moderation 😉
