JUDI’S RECIPES – WEEK 11 – AUGUST 13, 2019

August 13, 2019

Hi Everybody,

Another week of beautiful bounty. Mid-summer rocks!

Additional broccoli coming this week, and there’s more you can do with broccoli than just steaming or roasting it. Today’s recipe makes a wonderful appetizer  that even kids will eat. It is cheesy, chewy and delicious.

BROCCOLI CHEESE STICKS

INGREDIENTS

3 c. broccoli rice*
1 large egg
1 1/2 c. shredded mozzarella
1/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Pinch crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
2 tsp. freshly chopped parsley
Warmed marinara, for serving
DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Microwave riced broccoli for 1 minute to steam. Carefully wring out extra moisture from the broccoli using a paper towel.
2. Transfer the broccoli to a large bowl and add the egg, 1 cup of the mozzarella, the Parmesan, and the garlic. Season with oregano, salt, and pepper. Transfer this “dough” to the baking sheet and shape it into a thin, oval crust.
3. Bake until it is golden and dried out, about 20 minutes. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella and bake until the cheese is melted and the crust is crispy, 10 minutes more. Garnish with parsley and pepper flakes, if using.  Cut into “sticks”. Serve warm with the marinara for dipping.
*How to make broccoli “rice”: Pulse the broccoli in a food processor until it resembles rice (you can also grate it on the medium side of a box grater).
I hope you enjoy this yummy appetizer or lunch dish.
Have a delicious week!
Best,
Judi

Judi’s Recipe — Week #18

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.

Broccoli Patties

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
salt/pepper

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.
Best,
Judi
