In my family we nearly always have some kind of cheesy broccoli dish for Thanksgiving, a tradition that started with Thanksgiving Broccoli with Cheese Sauce
made with canned cheese soup and has evolved into the Broccoli Gratin with Swiss and Parmesan
you see featured lower in this post. So when I decided to feature Low-Carb Broccoli Recipes for a Thanksgiving Side Dish
for today’s installment of Low-Carb Recipe Love, I thought there’d be so many tasty-looking low-carb broccoli recipes 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. But maybe that just makes the low-carb broccoli ideas I’m featuring here even more special, right? And every recipe I’m including here looks like a fabulous low-carb treat with broccoli, including four 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.

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!
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!
And a third 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?
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!
