Roasted Coconut Broccoli
A super-simple two-ingredient dish that ticks all the boxes as the perfect keto side dish. We have this at least two or three times a week to accompany our chicken, fish or braai (BBQ) meat – and we love it to the point of craving it. The stems soften and melt in your mouth, while the florets caramelise and crisp up – and the coconutty flavour is just heavenly…

*Note for US readers: The recipes on this site show the carbohydrates which should be counted on keto (in this case: it's 6.4g). Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) - and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
