My spicy, cheesy, low carbohydrate broccoli and rice cauliflower With just a little over three net carbohydrates per serving, it's the perfect complement for any low carbohydrate entree Let's get started I'm gonna take the easy way out I'm gonna take the easy way out here and use some [re-riced cauliflower and pre-cut broccoli If you're using fresh vegetables, you'll need about two and a half cups of riced cauliflower and about three cups of bite-sized broccoli florets
As I said, we need bite-sized florets; so if your pre-cut broccoli is as large like these, we'll need to chop them into smaller pieces Place the broccoli in a large mixing bowl and add the riced cauliflower Set this aside as we work on the cheese sauce To a saucepan on medium high heat, add four tablespoons of unsalted butter Let that melt just a bit and then add two cups of heavy cream
Give that a mix When the butter is fully melted, add some xanthan gum Whisk until the xanthan gum is fully incorporated We'll season our sauce with some salt; ground black pepper; a healthy amount of onion powder; some garlic powder; a little dried mustard powder; basil; sage; and finally some cayenne pepper Give that a whisk to mix in
Bring the sauce to a small simmer, then reduce the heat to low and add about one and a half cups of shredded pepper jack cheese Whisk until the cheese is fully melted Add the cheese sauce to the vegetables and mix thoroughly until combined Add the mixture to an 8 by 11 inch casserole dish and top with some finely grated cheddar cheese Place in the middle of a preheated 350°F oven for about 35 to 40 minutes
When it's done, let cool for about 10 minutes After it's cooled down a bit, top with some dried chives Serve warm and enjoy some spicy cheesy goodness! There you have it folks!
