Broccoli and Cauliflower Bake

Broccoli and cauliflower are great vegetables to eat as a side dish while on a ketogenic diet.  We are always on the prowl looking for some new way to spice them up.  You can only eat steamed so many times before you get bored!  This dish is relatively easy to make and has a wonderful hint of dijon that blends so well with the parmesan cheese.

Cauliflower Salad

Keto dieters are always on a quest for a “substitute” for their favorite foods.  Summer is fast approaching and in this case we wanted something that would fill the role of potato salad at our summer cookouts.  That’s when we came up with this amazing Cauliflower (No Potato) Salad!  It has all the flavor and almost the same mouth feel as real potato salad!  Check it out!

Cauliflower Salad

  • Servings: 8
  • Difficulty: Moderate
  • Print

image

  • 1 Medium Sized Head of Cauliflower (600g)
  • 6 Boiled Eggs, Peeled
  • 2/3 Cup Mayonnaise (Don’t use light mayo, it has more carbs!)
  • 3 Tbsp Yellow Mustard
  • 3 Tbsp Pickle Relish
  • 1/8 Cup Raw Chopped White Onion
  • Lite Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • Parley and Egg Slices to Garnish if Desired

Bring a large pot of water to a boil on the stove.  While that’s heating break the cauliflower florets into bite sized pieces.  Once your water is boiled add your cauliflower to the pot and cook until they’re tender.  If you have a food steamer or another method you prefer you can prepare the cauliflower that way.  It just has to be cooked tender.  Assuming you already know how to hard boil an egg and you’ve cooked the six eggs break them open and separate the yolks into a small bowl and mash them up.  (If you don’t here is How to Cook a Hard-boiled Egg.)  Take the egg whites and break or slice them down into small bite sized pieces.  After that it’s as easy as mixing all the ingredients together in a large bowl!

This salad tastes best when it is allowed to chill overnight in the refrigerator.  Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 3-4 Cups Diced Cooked Chicken  (Using canned chicken cuts down on prep time)
  • 1 Pound Pork Sausage
  • 1 Stalk Celery Chopped Fine
  • 1 Tablespoon Onion Chopped
  • 1/2 Pound Sliced Mushrooms
  • 8 oz Softened Cream Cheese
  • 16 oz Bag of Frozen Cauliflower Cooked Well and Drained (Can Use Fresh)
  • 8 oz Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp Pepper
  • Paprika (Optional)

First you will want to brown the sausage with the celery, onion and mushrooms.  Stir the softened cream cheese into the sausage mixture until well blended.  Coarsely chop the cooked cauliflower.  Mix all of the ingredients and spread in a greased 9×13″ baking dish. If desired, dust the top with paprika. Bake at 350º for about 40 minutes until the top is nicely browned.  This will make 6-12 servings and can be easily frozen.  Enjoy!
