Low Carb Broccoli Tuna Casserole Bake
This Low Carb Broccoli Tuna Casserole Bake is a special request for my dad. He loves tuna casseroles and is really trying to eat healthier these days along with our whole family. I made a similar recipe for Thanksgiving that was just a broccoli casserole. This adds in some great protein from the tuna (or salmon) to get good Omega-3 fatty acids into your diet.
I love broccoli. I love it in casseroles, in stir-fries, and as a simple side dish. Broccoli is so healthy for your too, full of vitamins and minerals.
I’m also a new fan of cauliflower. We eat it if not every night now, every other night. It is so flexible and can become anything you want it to be. Did you know you can even make a pizza crust from a cauliflower? I know… It is pretty amazing.
This is a pretty easy throw together meal too. Mix everything in a bowl and just spread it over your broccoli and cauliflower. Top with cheese, because cheese makes everything better. I shred my cheese in my Food Processor. It saves me money and I don’t get the filler ingredients added.
Bake it until it is all bubbly and ooey-gooey wonderful! Wait til you dig in to this casserole, I can’t promise you won’t go back for seconds. I hope you enjoy this Low Carb Broccoli Tuna Casserole Bake as much as we do!
