Servings: 4 people
- 300 g Broccoli, chopped
- 3 slices Wholemeal bread, blended into bread crumbs
- ½ Onion, finely diced
- 60 g Mature Cheese
- 2 Eggs, beaten
- 1 tsp Garlic powder
- 1 tsp Dried oregano
- 1 pinch Sea salt and black pepper
Add the broccoli to a pan of boiling water and simmer for 3 minutes. Drain and then add to a large bowl and mash until very fine.
Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and mix well.
Take out 1 tbsp at a time and roll in to a small sausage and repeat until you have 20.
Place on a lined or oiled baking sheet and cook in a preheated oven at 200°C/400°F for 25 minutes until they start to crisp up. Serve with your favourite dip.
- Use a mixture of broccoli and cauliflower, or just cauliflower to change things up.
- You can stick to just mature cheddar, or you can use a mixture of cheddar, parmesan and mozzarella.
- Roll these in to balls, bake and then stir in to pasta sauce for some vegetarian meatballs.
- Get creative with the flavours! If you like things spicy, then add some Mexican seasoning.
