KATHY'S LOW CARB CROUTON KISSES
Recipe provided by onlylowcarb.com
My family and friends love Mike's salad and always ask for the LC Crouton Kisses!
I am always making them and giving them to friends!
Take 4 to 6 slices of Low Carb Bread
and cut into home style size crouton squares and
place in a zip lock baggie with 1 to 2 tbsp of extra
Virgin Olive Oil, 1 tsp dry garlic, 2 tsp of parsley
1 tsp salt, 1 tsp white pepper, 1 tsp paprika
Zip lock the bag and shake it really good, to coat
all the croutons!!
Pour 1/2 inch of regular Olive oil or Canola oil into a large frying pan and
heat burner to med/high heat. When the oil heats up place the croutons
in the pan. They cook fast so pay attention and turn them quickly to cook the other side.
Do not stir, they should lay flat in the oil, and not layered.
I use small metal tongs to flip each one. When lightly browned place on paper
towels to drain off excess oil. Salt to taste!
Note: you may use any spices you wish to coat your croutons. Freeze the left over's
in individual serving size baggies for convenience.

Arrange flowerets in vegetable steamer over boiling water
Cover broccoli and let steam for 5 mins. for crunch, or 10 mins. for bright green
If you cook it longer it is soggy and pale in color(not a good thing)
Transfer broccoli to a serving bowl and keep warm

You will want to brown the butter just a little this also cooks the garlic
Serve cooked broccoli on individual plates and pour desired butter sauce on broccoli

Visitors Choice for Best Recipe of the Week!
Caulifower slightly mashed with cheddar cheese. Delicious!!!!
Below- Plain Cauliflower Mashed with a little Monterey Jack Cheese and sauted onion, then baked and very GOOD!
Pictures Left to Right- Raw Cauliflower Florettes- Boiled, Mashed and seasoned- After Baking
Recipe variations provided by onlylowcarb.com!
There is a variety of ways to change the
flavor of this simple dish because the cauliflower
takes on the flavor of the seasoning you add to it.
1 large head of cauliflower (washed & cored)
Heavy whipping Cream
1 stick of butter
Place cauliflower in a large pot of boiling water
and bring back to boil. Boil slowly uncovered
for 10 to 15 minutes. The cauliflower is done when
when a knife pierces the stem easily.
Place the cooked cauliflower in a colander
to drain. Take a paper towel and pat it dry
once the cauliflower is warm not steaming hot.
Place the cauliflower back in the pot it was cooked
in minus the water. Take a hand Potato masher and mash
it until it is just a little lumpy(if you like the consistency runny
use a food processor). Add as much butter as you desire (I use
1/2 stick or more depending on the size of the cauliflower). Then
add 1/4 cup Heavy Whipping Cream. You can heat this dish up in
the pot on your stove or place in a casserole dish and heat in
the oven on 350° for about 10 to 20 minutes.
You can get creative and add sour cream, bacon pieces, cheddar cheese
cream cheese, cooked onion til browned, chives, garlic or whatever
you decide. I like to reheat in the oven with either a few extra
pats of butter or mix it with sour cream, garlic, salt and pepper or
you can make a cheese sauce on your stove using 1/4 cup heavy whipping
cream, 3 oz cream cheese and 1 cup cheddar. Do not mash the
cauliflower to mashed potato consistency, but to a very lumpy consistency.
Pour sauce over cauliflower and bake for 15 - 25 minutes in a 350°oven. It
is reheated when the sauce is bubbling.
Just get really creative with this incredible low carb vegetable.
The results are worth the extra time!
I have a pic of my dish. It's the lumpy consistency with the cheese sauce.
