Low Carb Broccoli Slaw

When my wife first showed me the package of “Broccoli Slaw” she picked up from the store I wasn’t sure what it would taste like.  After all it’s coleslaw but made with broccoli stems – not cabbage.  We used this recipe for coleslaw dressing and combined the two.  The result was incredibly easy and very tasty!  This is an excellent side dish for Low Carb Breaded Fish.

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.

  • 16 Oz Fresh or Frozen Broccoli Florets
  • 16 Oz Fresh or Frozen Cauliflower Florets
  • 1 1/2 Cups Mayonaisse

  • 4 Green Onions, Chopped
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1/4 Tsp Cayenne Pepper (Adjust to your taste!)
  • 1 Oz Parmesan Cheese (Topping)
  • Morton Salt Lite Salt and Black Pepper to Taste

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Start off by steaming the broccoli and cauliflower for 6 to 8 minutes.  They should remain crisp but tender.  Drain the vegetables and season with Morton Salt Lite Salt and pepper.  Grease a 9″x13″ baking dish and place all the steamed florets into it.  In a separate bowl mix the mayonnaise, cheddar cheese, 3 oz parmesan cheese, green onions, dijon mustard and cayenne pepper.  Spoon this mixture over the broccoli and cauliflower in the baking pan and spread it out as evenly as possible.  Finally sprinkle the 1 oz portion of parmesan cheese over the top.  Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the topping has turned a golden brown.

Fried Cabbage with Bacon and Onions

Living in near Pittsburgh Pa we have strong ties to the Polish heritage that runs so strong here.  What ties a group of people together better than their food?  This recipe reminds me of the haluski (Fried cabbage and noodles) that is so often present at family gatherings.  Cabbage is a great low carb food and this dish is a great side kielbasa or just about any other meat.

Fried Cabbage with Bacon and Onions

  • Servings: 6
  • Difficulty: Easy

  • 1 Medium Size Head Green Cabbage, Chopped Loosely (I used a Mandoline Slicer.  Just Slice the Cabbage in 1/4s and go to town!)
  • 4 Tbsp Butter
  • 3 Slices Bacon, Chopped
  • 1/2 Small White Onion, Chopped
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • Morton Lite Salt and Pepper to Taste

We used our handy dandy T-fal Wok again for this recipe but you can use any large pan.  Cook your bacon over medium heat.  Once the fat begins to cook down and there is grease in the pan add your onions.  When the bacon begins to look crisp add the cabbage, salt, pepper, worcestershire sauce and butter.  Stir the mixture occasionally until the cabbage softens.  I allowed the some of the cabbage to brown slightly which I think adds some complexity to the flavor.  I end up adding more salt or pepper once it’s served but that’s entirely up to you!  Enjoy!
