Comfort food for my partner is anything hot and cheesy, while eating too much heavy, cheesy foods often leave me feeling heavy. This keto recipe is the perfect balance for us, with creamy cheesy sauce spooned through lots of vegetables and canned tuna.
I usually use broccoli and cauliflower but you could use whatever you have on hand, including any frozen vegetables. Likewise, I like tuna here, but you could swap out for another fish — either tinned, smoked, or cooked salmon, sardines or mackerel — all would work. If you're not a fan of fish, feel free to use cooked chicken or turkey.
This recipe will make 4 regular-small servings or 2-3 generous servings. Enjoy!
