Keto and Low Carb Recipes: Kabocha Poblano Casserole

Keto Kabocha Poblano Casserole

Geri Terry
This recipe is incredible for the holiday season. Low carb, keto, and loaded with veggies, this casserole will be a hit at any holiday dinner or party. The best thing about this casserole is, you don’t have to feel as though you will have to live on the Stairmaster for the next week after your second helping. Doing the keto diet shouldn’t mean abandoning the dishes you love, but finding alternatives to make your favorite dishes just as delicious--but to also accommodate your new lifestyle.

  • Prepare the ingredients.
    Vegetarian cuisine
  • Roast the peppers until the skin is charred and blistered. You can do this over the open flame on a gas stove, or by heating your broiler to high and placing poblanos within a few inches of the broiler (turning to get all sides charred).
    Personal protective equipment
  • Place peppers in a brown lunch bag. Let cool, then rub skin to remove as much charred skin as possible. Clean out the seeds and dice.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Combine onion, oil, pumpkin, zucchini, garlic, and toss together. Sprinkle the next 4 ingredients (through ground red pepper), tossing to coat. Place one-third of pumpkin mixture in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with one-third of pepper strips.
  • Repeat procedure twice with pumpkin mixture and peppers. Pour milk over vegetables. Coat top layer with cooking spray.  Bake at 400°F for 45 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until squash is tender.


I would like to note that the holidays are meant for enjoying and not worrying. We’re all human, and no one will blame you if you go for that second helping of mashed potatoes and stuffing. You can get back on track and get back to ketosis. Enjoy your favorite foods with your family during the holiday season.
I think recipes are like The Pirates Code.  They are more guidelines than actual rules.   This recipe that I provided has a nice southwestern flair, but if that’s not your thing, you could go Italian and switch Italian peppers for poblanos, ditch the cumin and add Italian seasoning, or substitute mozzarella for the queso fresco. You can also use cheddar or feta. Your table, your rules! Modify to you and your family’s needs.
