My favorite Christmas side…

This broccoli casserole isn’t Paleo, but it is grain, gluten, wheat and sugar free so to me, it’s the perfect splurge, not to mention, I just love it.  It’s what my grandma Alice use to make when I was little and have had it every year ever since, with a little bit of modification.  Here’s what you need:

  • about 6 cups of broccoli
  • 3/4 cup Greek yogurt (2% Fage or Whole Foods)
  • 1/3 cup mayo (Olive Oil Spectrum from Whole Foods)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp celtic sea salt
  • 1/8 pepper
  • 1 cup cheese (Trader Joe’s no rBST) , 1/2 cup for the top
What to do:
1.  Bring a pot of water (filled about 2 inches with water) to a boil.
2.  Add broccoli and cover so it can steam for about 8-10 minutes.
3.  Strain the broccoli and mix with the ingredients above.
4.  Pour into glass 8×8 dish, add the rest of the cheese on top, and cook on 350 for 25 minutes.
5.  Turn to broil and let cook for 5 more so the cheese can brown.
I hope y’all enjoy this as much as I do!
For the rest of the meal, I’m going to do “fried” okra, my cauliflour mash, roasted brussel sprouts, green beans (from yesterdays’s post),  1 Big Green Egg grilled turkey, 1 slow cooked turkey, a chocolate pie, and some sugar cookies.  Check back tomorrow for these recipes!

    • landriav - Oh sorry, I just saw this!! We use a sharp cheddar but you can use whatever you like. I hope it turned out!!ReplyCancel

  • keile green - All you state is Greek. What did you omit? Feta? Please clarify.ReplyCancel

    • landriav - Ah sorry Keile, great yogurt! No sure what I omitted? I rarely do dairy so for me, if i omitted anything it would have been a cheese but for this recipe, I think I included it all. Hope that helps some.ReplyCancel
