I am always looking for snacks that taste good, curb my cravings and are healthy for my body. Is that even POSSIBLE, you ask ?! With today's recipe for broccoli nibbles, you can accomplish all of that and more because they're just so good and perfect for the picky eater in your life! These bites are naturally made with broccoli (hello nutrients) plus a variety of cheeses and condiments to create the most exciting broccoli recipe ever that the whole family will love! They're also low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats, which makes them perfect for the keto eater in your life.
How to do Broccoli bites
Spray a baking sheet very generously with cooking oil spray and preheat the oven so it can warm up while you work in the kitchen.
Prepare the broccoli
Place your broccoli florets in a food processor and blend until well broken down. Transfer them to a microwaveable bowl or bowl and heat them until they are light green and tender. Stop in the middle to stir them.
Add onion, quark and garlic and stir again. Put it back in the microwave and heat it up a little longer.
Add the egg white, cheddar, panko, parsley, salt and pepper and stir until everything is well incorporated.
Use a spoon or your hands to shape the broccoli mixture into tots. Do this for all of the broccoli and arrange them evenly on your oiled pan. Spray the tips of your broccoli tots generously with cooking spray.
Pop them in the oven and bake your keto broccoli bites until golden and crispy! Serve them and enjoy! Devoured!
Now that you've baked your AMAZINGLY delicious broccoli tots, it's time to have a snack! These would be fabulous dipped in a ranch dressing or other sauce of choice along with some other starters! If you're hosting a game day or other finger food get-together, I recommend serving this up as well as some air fryer chicken nuggets, healthy devil eggs with Greek yogurt, and a large bowl of chips with grilled pineapple mango salsa and corn. Eat and Enjoy!
Storage and rewarming
When I make these incredible broccoli bites there is a 0% chance of leftovers as we finish them every time. BUT if you have anything left over, it can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To reheat them and enjoy them, I recommend setting the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and reheating them on an oiled pan. That way, when you dunk them, they'll get crispy and crunchy!
How to use cauliflower instead
If you want to mess things up and use cauliflower instead of broccoli for these bites, absolutely you can! The proportions are the same, so just skip the broccoli and follow the directions with cauliflower in its place. Let me know how to do it and what your prefer – cauliflower or broccoli in your little one!
