Keto Cheesy Broccoli

26 ratings

So delicious even your kids will like this! Quickly blanched broccoli keeps the cooking time down and allows for beautifully bright green florets. Florets are topped with salt and sharp cheddar cheese, then placed under the broiler to get nice, brown and crispy.

  • Step 1

    Prepare a medium stock pot with water and bring it to a boil. In the meantime, cut the broccoli into florets and slice the stems on a bias. Once water is boiling, add a good pinch of salt to the water and drop the broccoli in. If you like your veggies to have some more texture, cook for 1 minute, if not add another 30 seconds. Then remove the broccoli from the water with a slotted spoon making sure to drain all the water off.

      I’ve been making this with olive oil instead of butter, white cheddar, adding some crushed red pepper and a squeeze of a lemon to top it off!
