Gluten and Dairy Free Broccoli Bake

What I love about this gluten and dairy free Broccoli Bake, besides the fact that it is extremely light and tasty is that you can eat this anytime of day. It is great for breakfast, brunch or lunch, served as the main event or equally as delicious as a side with dinner. As an added bonus this is so healthy and easy to make that you will find yourself making it over and over again. Also a great way to get the kids to eat their broccoli.

  2. Reminds me of a frittata and love the addition of coconut milk. I think this will be on my table in the near future. Thanks for sharing on Gluten Free Wednesdays.
