Vegetable Gruyere Bake (Keto)

We always (and I mean ALWAYS) have broccoli, cauliflower and double cream in the house. I have played around with so many different ways to use those delicious vegetables and have made many different high fat cheesy bakes too. They are all equally delicious – we don’t even have a favourite. (Check out the SIDE DISHES category on this site to see them all.) Anyway, with this one, I wanted the beautiful, unique flavour Gruyere cheese to feature because I love flavour that slaps me through the face. I also added just a pinch of ground paprika to give a slightly different flavour dimension. Whip this out at your next Sunday roast – your family will love the rich decadence! THIS RECIPE IS ACCOMPANIED WITH A VIDEO. (Scroll down to see it, and be sure to watch the blooper reel Funnyman slips in at the end!)

Creamy Garlic Broccoli with Tomato Relish (Keto)

I love cream-baked broccoli: its a simple dish which I throw together quite often. In this version, however, I enhanced the creamy mixture with sour cream and full-fat cream cheese and served the end-result with one of my favourite new homemade condiments: a quick relish made from finely chopped tomato and garlic. This dish is very rich and indulgent and will suitably serve 4 as a side veg option. THIS RECIPE IS ACCOMPANIED WITH A VIDEO.

Broccoli and Brown Butter Mash (Keto)

OK, this is probably not my greatest picture, but the flavour of this broccoli mash makes up for what you see as a bowl of bright green mush! I simply mashed up cooked broccoli and folded through glorious ‘browned’ butter before seasoning and serving. Browned butter (called Beurre Noisette in French culinary terms) is basically butter (grass-fed only for us, obvs) that has been melted down and kept on the heat until the milk solids separate and start to gently brown, flavouring the butter. The butter is then strained through cheesecloth or food-grade muslin, discarding the milk solids. You are left with a deeply-flavoured, beautifully nutty melted (and very versatile) butter that will blow your mind! If you choose to always have a batch of little set browned butter cubes on hand, I have a Beurre Noisette recipe on the site which is portioned after setting and can be used in numerous ways.

Cream-baked Broccoli (Keto)

Keto Cream-baked Broccoli
Keto Cream-baked Broccoli

Its difficult to communicate to readers how yummy something is. Sometimes I just shut down from lack of descriptive words (and I hope that my telling you this will inspire you to try it). Here, I simply baked par-cooked broccoli in seasoned double cream and the result was… well, incredible. I have no other words… this cream-baked broccoli will hopefully blow your hair back as much as it did mine. Be sure to also check out all the Side Dishes on this site.

Roasted Coconut Broccoli (Keto)

Keto Coconut Broccoli

A super-simple two-ingredient dish of coconut roasted broccoli that ticks all the boxes as the perfect keto side dish. We have this at least two or three times a week to accompany our chicken, fish or braai (BBQ) meat – and we love it to the point of craving it. The stems soften and melt in your mouth, while the florets caramelise and crisp up – and the coconutty flavour is just heavenly. THIS RECIPE IS ACCOMPANIED WITH A VIDEO. (Scroll down to see it, and be sure to watch the blooper reel Funnyman slips in at the end!)
