Low Carb Stuffed Cabbage Casserole Recipe in One Pot
So naturally, now that I am eating low carb, I decided to create an Unstuffed Cabbage Casserole that is low carb and Keto friendly. I just make rice on the side for my daughter.
Is Cabbage Casserole Healthy
Yes! This hearty casserole is full of healthy veggies and lean protein. I think cabbage has been a super food before super foods were even a thing! You could also use ground turkey or chicken if you are avoiding beef.
I added an orange bell pepper to this recipe for flavor and color. If you are following a strict low carb diet feel free to omit the orange pepper. That will save you about 9 total carbs or 6 net carbs overall.
Is Cabbage Good For A Low Carb Keto Diet
Yes! One cup of raw cabbage contains approximately 22 calories, 5 carbs and 2 grams of fiber. 3 net carbs.
That means that cabbage is most definitely Keto friendly and a great choice to fill up those vegetable carbs.
