WHAT IS KETO?

“Keto is a low-carb, high fat, moderate protein lifestyle

The ketogenic diet, or keto, refers to a way of eating that can be described as low-carb, high fat, and moderate protein.

Most people on keto eat less than 20g net carbs each day and get more than 75% of their nutrients from fat (more on this below). 

The goal of keto is ketosis

One of the goals of the ketogenic diet is getting into what is called ketosis.

Ketosis is a metabolic state in which your body is burning fat for fuel instead of burning carbs and sugar. ” – an excerpt from Dr. Davinahs Eats

You can read more about it from my friend, Dr. Davinah, she has an amazing keto blog, where you will drool over every recipe and learn so much!

First, what do you need to make Broccoli & Cauliflower Pimento Cheese Bake?

  1. Broccoli Florets
  2. Cauliflower Florets
  3. Pimento Cheese
  4. Mayo
  5. Extra Cheese, because well, you can!

I mean, total, this recipe is about 5 ingredients – it really could not be more simple! 

If you only have broccoli on hand, just use broccoli. 

If you only have cauliflower, just use cauliflower.

Like most of the simple recipe ideas here at Sweetpea, they are a bit ‘DIY.’ 

To begin, you’ll add your broccoli and cauliflower to a skillet/pan that has a lid. (If you don’t have a lid, grab a cookie sheet and place it on top!)

You’ll add about 3/4 cup of water, and cover to steam over medium heat.

Once the broccoli and cauliflower are tender, you’ll stir in the pimento cheese + mayo mixture.

You’ll need a good Pimento Cheese recipe, and this one is toooooo good. There are very few times I don’t have a jar of it in the fridge, waiting to be spread on anything that sits still.

Once it’s all stirred together, top with shredded cheese, and cover to melt!

You could dump this whole shebang in a casserole dish, and bake it. I just melted the cheese on top by covering and letting it sit until melted.

This is definitely a quick side dish recipe idea! The whole thing maybe takes 15-20 minutes!
