I’m going to do a series of round-ups for things that might make it to your Thanksgiving (or Christmas) table, starting with Low-Carb Broccoli Recipes for a Tasty 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 were 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 ten low-carb broccoli ideas I’m featuring here are even more useful for you! Every recipe I’m including 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.
