Keto Vegetable Bake with Creamy Pesto

Keto Vegetable Bake with Creamy Pesto

If you didn’t see my Keto Pesto with Celery Leaves recipe last week, do yourself a favour and check it out! After making this delicious pesto, I used it on everything for a week, including this delicious Keto Vegetable Bake.

Combining keto pesto with cream is a no-brainer and it works particularly well with my Celery Leaf pesto, which is naturally really peppery and a little spicy. Who knew celery leaves could do that? Not me, that’s for sure!

You can use other vegetables as you please but already remember to check out the NET carb count. There’s a few vegetables that I sometimes forget can be higher in carb like carrot and capsicum. Broccoli is a must though, it goes so tender and almost nutty in flavour when roasted.

The vegetables I chose for this dish worked really well with the pesto so give it a shot! This could definitely be a meal on its own, or makes a hearty side dish to a steak, salmon or chicken.
