Low Carb Broccoli Cheesy Breadsticks

These broccoli cheesy bread sticks are quick to make and are a great low carb and gluten free appetiser.  It’s a great way to sneak something green into your food.  Other then creme de menthe..

Once again, broccoli is stepping into the shoes of cauliflower and is holding up rather well with these cheesy bread sticks.   It would make a great low carb pizza base too.   Extra cheese on the top is optional but the Chief Taster demanded it for this batch.

 Parchment paper a must!  I tried this with grease proof paper and the mixture stuck to one side.  We had to scrape it off with a knife and it did not look good.  Tasted lovely, just looked a green and cheesy mess.   I’ve also played around with this by adding coconut flour and ground flax seed to make it a bit firmer.  It was not as nice as this one.  Perhaps when you have a plain and simple recipe you should just leave it alone!

These broccoli cheesy bread sticks are delicious paired with a Marinara sauce.  It adds to the almost pizza-like taste that these bread sticks have.  Soft and gooey, you would not think that you are munching into a head of broccoli.  Broccoli goes so well with cheese that this is an easy recipe with winning flavour combinations.

    I find that heads of broccoli are so varied in size…do you know in cups how much it would measure after processing? Thanks. This looks delish…I love the cauliflower and I think my husband would eat this one since he likes broccoli.

      Hi, I would estimate it to be about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of broccoli. I hope you enjoy it!
