Cheesy Broccoli & Cauliflower Bake – Low Carb 5 0 5 2

A creamy cheesy broccoli and cauliflower bake

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 1 hr 45 mins
  • 15 mins

    1 hr 45 mins

    2 hrs

  • Yields: 5 side serves

Ingredients

500g bag of mixed broccoli and cauliflower pieces (or fresh cut yourself if you prefer)

200ml of cooking cream

1 cup grated tasty cheese

1 cup grated mozzarella cheese

A shallow cooking dish that fits inside your slow cooker for ease of serving (see notes below)

Directions

1Place approx 1 inch of warm water in the cooking bowl of your slow cooker - but ensure the water level is not high enough that it could flow INTO your cooking dish when it is placed in the water bath to cook - adjust water level as necessary

2Take the cooking dish and prepare the following INSIDE this dish

3Pour broccoli and cauliflower into the cooking dish

4Mix cream with tasty cheese and pour over the vegetables in the cooking dish

5Carefully lower this filled cooking dish into the water bath in your slow cooker bowl

6Place tea towel on slow cooker using The Tea Towel Trick

7Cook on HIGH for 1hr 30mins or until vegetables are fork tender

8At this point scatter the Mozzarella cheese over the top of your vegetables and return to cooking for another 15mins until cheese on top is well melted

9Lift the cooking dish carefully out of the slow cooker bowl

10Use large spoon to serve.

12ALTERNATE METHOD: I also cook this recipe directly in my 1.5L slow cooker bowl also. It works just as well this way too. I cooked on HIGH in the 1.5L cooker for approximately 2hrs as it's not as spread out so needs a little more time I found 🙂

I love this and do it often. I do it straight into a 3.5 sc with light oil spray. Tonight i added a bit of extra broccoli and cauliflower, 3 spring onions and chopped 4 rashers of short cut bacon. It needed a bit more liquid so I added 1/2 cup chicken stock. So magnificent

The tea towel trick

And the water bath is just shallow water with the dish sitting in it to save dry cooking in a ceramic cooker bowl

I really really liked this. I’ve been very basic with my sides (rice or potatoes) and suddenly cant eat too much potato, so have been searching for some alternatives. Here is a great one … easy, tasty, cheesy, cheap, filling. I can see myself doing this many times.

Don’t see why not
I use Bulla brand cooking cream

Sure – it just may need less time though cooked directly in the slow cooker bowl so keep an eye on it first time to be sure 🙂

Can you please tell me….if I only have a small slow cooker, can I make this directly into the sc bowl? I assume no water used then? Thanks 😊

I’ve not tried to yet to able to say with certainty but I think that perhaps between the cream in the sauce and the softened veg after cooking it may not look the best or have a great consistency once frozen, defrosted then reheated? If you try though do let us know 🙂
