Just a quick post today (nonetheless interesting though!)
With my Auntie Jenny staying (post-gallbladder surgery) we’ve been super busy around the house and have been on a constant search and mission to find food that my Auntie fancies (her taste buds are favouring sweet things over savoury at the moment – like auntie like niece).
This evening we decided on a ‘nibbles dinner’ (my favourite!) laying out boards of cheese, meats, boiled potatoes, crisps, salad, humous and so on… But we needed some veg in there somewhere, so I decided to conduct an experiment.
I whipped the old blender out, threw in some bread crumbs, eggs, salt, cheese and broccoli and using an ice cream scoop (creative or what?!) created some balls and fried what can be described as an unusual yet scrummy way of eating some veg!
If you have children this is a brilliant way to get in your vitamin C and K – rather than being a boring old citizen and eating your greens steamed or boiled, why don’t you fry them with cheese?!
Cheesy Broccoli Bites (makes around 10)
3/4 floret of broccoli
Pinch of sea salt
1 slice of bread, made into breadcrumbs
30g cheese, Parmesan would work well
- Steam your broccoli and make your bread crumbs
- Add all the ingredients to the food processor and blend
- Form into balls and fry in a saucepan – flatten with a spatula until cooked on both sides
