I’m back with the low carb amazing-ness and that they aren't here to disappoint!


These Low Carb Cauliflower Pot Pies square measure high in flavor however low in calories. to not mention, they’re protein free! Like…does it extremely get any higher, guys?. I’ve been itch to share this instruction with y’all for over per week currently however sadly, I encountered some behind the scenes technical school probz.

The base for these Low Carb Cauliflower Pot Pies is created with just about identical ingredients that I used for my Cauliflower dish Bites – minus the Italian seasoning. I used an outsized quick bread pan to form the bases for these pies, however if you happen to own a group of ramekins accessible then those can work dead fine also!

The filling itself is suuuuper straightforward peasy to form and uses a bag of frozen mixed vegetables that helps to actually block on school assignment time. several ancient sauces imply all purpose flour so as to thicken it up, however I used a mix of starch and water so as to realize thickness whereas keeping this instruction entirely protein free!




Ingredients

For the cauliflower base:

  • 1 medium head cauliflower (4-5 cups cauliflower rice)
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • pinch of salt and pepper

For the pot pie filling:

  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup almond milk, unsweetened
  • 1 cup frozen mixed vegetables
  • 8 oz cooked chicken, diced
  • 1 tbs onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbs cornstarch + 1/4 cup water

Instructions


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Add the cauliflower to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until you achieve a rice-like consistency. Transfer cauliflower "rice" to a bowl and microwave for 5 minutes. Set aside and allow cauliflower to cool for approx 10 minutes.
  2. Add the cauliflower rice to a cheesecloth and squeeze out as much of the juice from the cauliflower as possible. If you don't, the bases may end up soggy. (The key here is to really get as much of that juice out as you can. Once you have done a round with the cheesecloth. Repeat with another dry cheesecloth to ensure you have removed a majority of the liquid. I managed to get 1 1/2 cups of cauliflower juice).
  3. Add the dried cauliflower rice to a bowl with the egg, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Using your hands, combine all of the ingredients thoroughly. Spray a large muffin pan or 4 ramekins and gently press the cauliflower mixture to the sides, creating a cauliflower bowl. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the centers are dry and the edges are golden brown.
  4. While the cauliflower bases are in the oven, spray a medium saucepan with cooking spray and saute the diced onion on high heat until slightly tender. Reduce heat to medium and add the chicken broth, almond milk, mixed vegetables, onion powder, salt and black pepper. Stir and cover for approx 5-8 minutes or until frozen vegetables are soft.
  5. Mix the cornstarch with the water to make a slurry and add to the sauce with the cooked chicken. Stir in the cornstarch mixture and increase heat to high and cook until sauce begins to boil. Remove from heat.
  6. Fill each cauliflower base with the pot pie filling and serve!
