If you are aT2 diabetic on a low carb meal program, you might not want to add pasta. When cooking the broccoli we often add and steam cook some green string beans along with some kale, which we lay along the sides of the broccoli if we don't use pasta.
Most T2 Diabetics struggle to find easy and reliable low carb meals that are tasty and can help in trying to lower BS levels to enable T2s to reverse diabetes. This is one my favorites that have helped me remain in remission now for over 4 yrs.
This is an extremely versatile dish and can be varied so easily by altering the main ingredient, changing cauliflower for broccoli is a popular variation.
Separate the cauliflower outer leaves and cut away the stems of the cauliflower leaving just enough to keep the florets intact
