Brocquettes

One of my favourite kitchen hobbies is to try and make healthy food as appealing as possible as this helps create the illusion that you’re indulging when really you are still eating mindfully.
Don’t get me wrong, I am a big fan of the cheat meals but I also love to find ways to transform healthy food into those old Friday night favourites.
These baked broccoli croquettes are a brilliant example of this and taste great with a range of dips and sauces. Enjoy!

Method

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and line a baking tray with some greaseproof paper.
Steam or boil the broccoli for 2-3 minutes, rinse under cold water and leave to drain.
Chop the broccoli until very fine then mix in the scallion, cheddar, breadcrumbs, eggs and seasoning.
Mix thoroughly until even.
Taking a small handful of the mix, shape into little cylindrical bite size pieces and place on your baking tray until all the mix has been used.
Bake for about 18-24 minutes until golden brown and serve with your favourite sauce.

If, like me, you want to stay away from bread wherever possible,
you can also use some breadcrumb alternatives such as milled almonds or milled oats.
