  • 3-4 c. broccoli, cut into florets & blanched (blanching: put into boiling water for 3 minutes or so, then drain)
  • 4 Tbs. butter or nondairy butter alternate, divided & melted
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 3 Tbs. rice flour
  • 3 c. milk or nondairy milk
  • 3 c. shredded cheddar cheese or nondairy cheddar alternate
  • 1/4 c. cooking sherry (don't leave this out as it gives it the flavor)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 3 cups diced cooked turkey (this is a great way to use leftover Thanksgiving turkey or leftover chicken you might have)
  • 3 slices gluten free bread


This recipe works well if you need to do a dairy free version as well. If you DO do dairy frfee, make sure that your non-dairy milk is unsweetened. If not it'll taste weird.


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Wash broccoli and cut into florets. Blanch for 3 minutes in boiling water. Drain and place in greased 9x13 pan.
2. Dice turkey or chicken and layer in pan on top of broccoli.
3. Melt 3 Tbs butter in sauce pan and saute onion until it startes to get soft; whisk in rice flour.
4. Let rice flour mixture simmer for 1-2 minutes, then gradually add in milk. The milk mixture will thicken slightly.
5. Once milk mixture has thickened, whisk in cheese until completely melted. Add salt & pepper to taste and sherry and whisk until combined. Pour cheese mixture over broccoli & turkey.
6. Put gluten free bread and remaining 1 Tbs. melted butter in a food processor and process until you have fine bread crumbs.
7. Sprinkle bread crumbs over broccoli, turkey & cheese; spread until there is uniform coverage of the bread crumbs.
8. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until bubbly and bread crumbs have browned.
