Cheesy Broccoli Bites

Broccoli Bites3

 

Hello beautiful people,

I hope you all had an awesome weekend. I personally had a very enjoyable Sunday (I have a working Saturday 😦 ). But on Sunday, my hubby’s few friends and us got together for a brunch and played Pool, Dumb Charades etc. and it was whole lotta fun!!! And then my Monday Blues started (can u blame a girl???).

So coming to last weekend, I was too tired after work on Saturday to cook anything elaborate for dinner and too finicky to eat out or order in! Plus there was a broccoli head staring at me in fridge from last week and I hate wasting/throwing any form of food. Hence I thought of making this eezee-peezee appetizer and decided to serve it over Tomato & Red Pepper Soup.

It turned out to be an amazing combo!

Posting my recipe for Tomato & Red Pepper Soup is a tale for another time (I know you can’t wait but plzz wait!!!). So here comes the recipe of yummilicious Cheesy Broccoli Bites!

Ingredients:

  • 250 gms fresh broccoli head, cut into florets and steamed
  • 100 gms grated white cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs

Directions:

Cut broccoli into big florets. Let it steam for 2 minutes and then chop it finely.

Form small patties with your hands and lay on a greased parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake at 375F/190C for 30 minutes, turning the patties after the first 15 minutes.

Serve it hot with accompaniment of your choice. They taste great with soup, salad or as is with tomato ketchup! 😉

P.S. You can also serve these with the homemade low-fat Ranch dressing from this recipe: https://cookbybook.wordpress.com/2013/04/18/veggie-shooters/

    • You can try mashed potatoes or pureed plain tofu.
      Use 1/4 cup mashed potatoes/pureed tofu = 1 egg.
      If using pureed tofu then increase the quantity of flour by 1 Tbsp for every 1/4 cup of pureed tofu.

      Hope this helps..
      Do try and let us know what you tried and how it turned out.. Would be of a huge help to everyone!
      Thanks!
