Broccoli Bites

This is a sneaky delicious way to get kids (and adults) to eat more cruciferous vegetables.

They taste so good you will forget they are actually good for you.


  • 1 head broccoli - broken into florets

  • 4 medium sized courgettes (baby marrow) - grated.

  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs

  • 1 cup graded mozzarella

  • 1 cup grated parmesan

  • 1 Garlic clove, crushed

  • 1 stalk fresh rosemary, chopped

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika

  • 3 whole eggs

  • Sea salt to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 200℃

  2. Place the broccoli in a high speed blender or food processor and pulse until it is the texture of rice.

  3. Grate the courgettes and place in a colander. Sprinkle with sea salt and leave to drain for half an hour. The salt will draw any water out of the courgette.

  4. Place all of the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir until fully combined.

  5. Form the mixture into balls - roughly the size of golf balls and press gently to flatten onto a baking tray that you have lined with greased baking paper.

  6. Bake for 25 minutes.

  7. Remove from the oven and cool before eating.

  8. Can be stored for up to 3 days in the fridge.
