"I found this recipe on a recipe card from the fruit market. My DH is not a broccoli fan, but he really enjoyed these. Served with sweet chilli sauce these were wonderful although DH did prefer tomato sauce. For a gluten free version, I think GF breadcrumbs or almond meal would work well, and I also think you could add just a little fresh grated garlic to the recipe if you like garlic. NOTE: I did change this recipe a little when I made these, I used chopped cashews instead of salad seeds - I think pine nuts would be fantastic also. But salad seeds were listed in the original recipe."

Step 1

Preheat oven to 200°C fan-forced.

Step 2

Cut broccoli into even-sized florets and Boil, steam or microwave broccoli for 2-3 minutes until just tender.

Step 3

Drain, refresh in cold water then set aside on a plate lined with paper towel to dry and slightly cool.

Step 4

Whisk the eggs in a large bowl.

Step 5

Note: For this next step I used a food processor and pulsed just a few times just to get a finely chopped broccoli... do not process too much as the broccoli will go mushy.

Step 6

Finely chop broccoli and stir into eggs. Add cheese, breadcrumbs and seeds. Mix until well combined and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 7

Using your hands, roll the mixture into small balls (about the size of a ping-pong ball).

Step 8

Place balls onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden.

Step 9

Serve with sweet chilli or tomato sauce for dipping.

Wow are these ever delicious! Made them with broccoli from my garden, and served them with homemade sweet chili sauce and a herbed tomato sauce for the grandchildren. They were all gone! Love that they are baked! Thanks for sharing Tisme!
