Welcome to Week 18! We are deep into fall produce, which means yummy root vegetables, squashes and cool weather greens. Here’s a great recipe for broccoli patties, lower in fat and calories than the fried kind.
2 tsp vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic – minced
1/2 onion – chopped
1 large head broccoli, chopped
3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
2 eggs – beaten
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
2. Heat the oil in a small pan over medium heat, add the garlic and onions. Sauté until the onions are translucent and the garlic are tender. Add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside to cool.
3. Put the broccoli into a large bowl. To the same bowl, add the panko, the cheeses, eggs, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix everything together and form into patties, then place on the prepared baking sheet.
4. Bake for 15 minutes. Flip and bake for another 15 minutes or until browned and crispy.
This is great on a cool Fall night, with salad and crusty bread. Enjoy! Have a delicious week.
