Southern Broccoli Casserole (paleo broccoli casserole)

Southern Broccoli Casserole (paleo broccoli casserole)

I have eaten broccoli casserole (and squash casserole) every Thanksgiving my entire life…it’s time that this recipe received a makeover!  There is no cheese in this paleo broccoli casserole recipe (unlike the original); however, I didn’t really miss it.  Also, the recipe traditionally calls for cracker crumbs on the top layer, so instead I sprinkled a little almond meal to try to replicate the crunch.  I hope you like this one!
