This low-carb broccoli and rice casserole will make you think you are eating the real thing

Print this recipe
Casseroles have been providing satisfying, delicious and fuss-free meals since indoor ovens became popular home features in the late 1800s. In American cuisine, they're almost always characterized as a baked dish that combines a starch, a protein and binders like eggs, cream or cheese. The recipe below turns that winning combination into a mouth-watering, low-carb meal.
Using riced cauliflower in place of rice means this casserole is loaded with low-carb veggies, but it’s the cheese that really makes it. Even vegetable-shy kids — or adults — are likely to scarf this up. Who can resist the creamy layers and topping of bubbling cheddar?
