Keto Broccoli cutlet is a healthy meal in itself. One of the most common woes of a Keto/ Paleo lifestyle is the lack in variety. Happily, many regular recipes just need a bit of tweaking to “ketofy” them. It’s just a matter of innovation and patience & viola a keto-fied meal is ready.

Broccoli Cutlet - Keto Broccoli Cutlet

Typically, as in many cutlets or tikkis, the binding agent used is bread, corn flour or potatoes – all of which are banned in the low carb lifestyle. So what do you use. There are quite a few options like tapioca starch or arrow root powder, almond flour or groundnut flour (I sometimes used the last two). Another common option is “Cheese”. Yes, cheese is definitely a binder and helps maintain the shape of this Keto Broccoli Cutlet. However, only certain cheeses like Cheddar or a similar hard cheese will do. Soft cheeses like processed cheese or mozzarella won’t work at all. Also, cheese gives you a good dose of protein and healthy fats along with calcium (50g of Cheddar cheese contains 11g of protein & 11g of fats).

Why Broccoli? Broccoli is an amazing vegetable and is a powerhouse of nutrition. Each 100g contains a decent amount of protein, fibre and loads of other micro nutrients. This is an easy and fun way to take in the vegetable if one doesn’t like a whole floret or when it gets mixed in any other form. Keto Broccoli Cutlet can be a whole meal in itself because of the decent amount of fats and proteins it contains.

Keto Broccoli cutlets can be refrigerated and reheated the next day.
