Broccoli Bread

broccoli breadBroccoli Bread is a healthy low carb bread substitute. It contains no gluten, grains or sugar only goodness to help you eat a radiant natural diet. Eating Broccoli Bread is a fantastic way to increase your vegetable intake. Broccoli contains vitamin C, K and A, manganese, potassium and glucosinolates. Broccoli requires a fat to be consumed alongside it to maximize the absorption of the glucosinolates, vitamin A and K.  I used eggs and full fat Greek yogurt in the recipe to boost absorption. Broccoli Bread has a high fibre content from the coconut flour and psyllium husks. You can add your own flavours too, I added fresh chives.  It tasted delicious with goats cheese on top.

Ingredients

1 Large head Broccoli, roughly chopped

Handful Chives, roughly chopped

1 tablespoon Psyllium Husks

2 tablespoons Coconut Flour

½ teaspoon Pink Rock Salt

2 tablespoon Full Fat Greek Yogurt

2 Free Range Eggs

Method

  • Preheat oven 180 degrees.
  • Pop chopped broccoli and chives in the food processor, pulse until they resemble a rice texture. Add to a large mixing bowl and add psyllium husks, coconut flour, salt, yogurt and eggs. Stir until the mixture is combined.
  • Scoop into your silicone bread pan or a round pan and bake in the oven for 30 minutes, it should be golden brown and firm in the middle.
  • Allow to cool and serve with some roasted cherry tomatoes and goats cheese.

    Looks fantastic – I must try it when I get back off holiday. One question : can you freeze it? Some Christmas Day guests are gluten-free.
    Thanks
