This diabetic broccoli casserole gives a creamy richness to a broccoli dish. It may not look that good,mainly because of the picture that I attempted to take, but it is quite yummy. I believe kids are more apt to eat their vegetables if it is rich and creamy with a little help from cheese! Give it a try. This dish is easy to make and nutritious for the table. It's also a carb conscious dish.
I used lean ground turkey and found that to be a very good choice.I could not get a great picture of this recipe. My apologies, it does not look appetizing in the picture! I am a huge fan of one pot meals and this is an easy one pot meal that I keep on hand.
