I’m going to do a series of round-ups for things that might make it to your Thanksgiving (or Christmas) table, starting with these Low-Carb Broccoli Recipes for a Thanksgiving Side Dish. In my family we nearly always have some kind of cheesy broccoli dish for Thanksgiving, a tradition that started years ago with Thanksgiving Broccoli with Cheese Sauce made with canned cheese soup, which has now evolved into the Broccoli Gratin with Swiss and Parmesan you see in the photo above. You really can’t go wrong with the Broccoli Gratin for Thanksgiving, but I still wanted to give you a few more options for Thanksgiving-worthy broccoli recipes!
When I started looking for low-carb broccoli recipes that seemed special enough for a holiday meal, I thought there’d be so many tasty-looking ideas that it would be hard to narrow it down. Instead nearly every fancy broccoli recipe that caught my eye turned out to have a sauce made with flour or was covered with breadcrumbs. So maybe the shortage of healthy broccoli recipes that are also a WOW makes the ten low-carb broccoli ideas I’m featuring here even more useful for you!
Every recipe I’m including here looks like a fabulous low-carb treat with broccoli, including some great variations of roasted broccoli, which has long been one of my favorite ways to cook it. If you’re a broccoli fan, PIN or bookmark this page because these are broccoli side dishes you can make all winter long when you want a tasty side dish with broccoli.

There’s no question that Broccoli Gratin with Swiss and Parmesan is the broccoli recipe I’ve made the most for Thanksgiving in recent years. And if you want cheesy broccoli that’s low-carb and gluten-free, I’ve got you covered with this one!
The way roasting transforms broccoli really does seem magical, so it makes perfect sense to me that Recipe Tin Eats calls this Magic Broccoli, and there’s loads of flavor here from broccoli, lemon, and Parmesan, yum!
I just updated the photos for this Roasted Broccoli with Lemon and Pecorino Romano Cheese from Kalyn’s Kitchen, and the Pecorino-Romano cheese makes this such a treat, but you can definitely use Parmesan if that’s what you have!
Another amazing roasted broccoli recipe is this Asiago Roasted Broccoli from Julia’s Album. For this dish the broccoli is sliced, so the pieces get nicely browned and have a lot of surface area to cover with yummy Asiago cheese!
This Barely Blanched Broccoli Salad with Feta and Fried Almonds from Kalyn’s Kitchen is a recipe I’ve made quite a few times for guests, and it’s been a complete hit with everyone I’ve served it to!
And another idea for roasted Broccoli is this Roasted Broccoli with Bacon, Pine Nuts, and Parmesan from Little Broken. What intrigued me here is that the broccoli, bacon, and pine nuts all roast together until the broccoli is tender and the bacon is crisp. And bacon, pine nuts, and Parmesan; what more could broccoli want to make it taste amazing?
Quick Roasted Broccoli with Soy Sauce and Sesame Seeds has that wow flavor you want for a holiday meal, and this cooks at a high temperature for only 15 minutes, so you can put it in the oven when you take the turkey out.
Creamy Broccoli and Mushroom Casserole from The Iron You is not only low-carb and gluten-free, but this tasty broccoli side dish is also Paleo and dairy-free. Doesn’t that look delicious?
Sweet and Sour Broccoli Salad from Kalyn’s Kitchen features a dressing with sweetener and a tiny bit of brown sugar, but use all sweetener to make this if you want the lowest carbs! This is a classic salad that’s a big hit in my family!
Garlic Broccoli Side Dish from Joy Filled Eats has an amazing sauce with olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic that sounds amazing on broccoli!
