Parmesan Roasted Broccoli

Hey Friends!

Today, I wanted to share a simple, healthy and delicious low FODMAP broccoli recipe. Yes, broccoli florets are low enough in FODMAPs to enjoy in a 3/4 -1 cup portion.  The nutrition profile of broccoli is great–  an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin C, and folate. Broccoli provides dietary fiber (perfect to feed our probiotic gut microbes) plus vitamin A via carotenoids and potassium too. This recipe was featured on my Instagram account this week and received sooo much love, I decided to post it on my blog. I offer gut health tips, low FODMAP diet recipes and gut-friendly product suggestions on Instagram…so if you are interested, follow me here. 

I simply dipped broccoli florets in eggs and then dusted with a combo of Parmesan cheese and almond flour, (I used Bob’s Red Mill super-fine almond flour) and then baked them up.

You could serve these as a side dish or as an appetizer along with a little dipping sauce. For a dipping sauce, I might use FODY foods low FODMAP Caesar dressing or make a little horseradish dip mixing up 1 tablespoon horseradish, 1/4 cup suitable mayo, 1 tablespoon lemon juice and a splash of hot sauce–such as Texas Petes, salt and pepper, to taste.

Russ and I enjoyed the Parmesan Roasted Broccoli as a side dish. So good. So good.
