Encouraging children to eat vegetables can sometimes be a challenge. But vegetables are a vital part of a healthy diet, so it’s important to help your child enjoy them.
Here is a great idea to get you started.
Makes 8 Broccoli Patties
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic – minced
1/2 onion – chopped
1 (12 ounce) bag frozen broccoli – defrosted
3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
2 eggs – beaten
preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
Heat the oil in a small pan over medium heat, add in the garlic and onions. Season with salt/pepper to taste. Sauté until onions are garlic are tender, set aside to cool.
Add the broccoli to a kitchen towel. Wrap the towel around the broccoli and squeeze out the extra moisture. Pour the drained broccoli into a large bowl.
To the same bowl, add the panko, the cheeses, eggs, and salt/pepper to taste.
Mix together and form into patties, place on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Flip and bake for another 15 minutes or until browned and crispy.
