One of my favourite meals is my waffle crusted chicken and Maple sauce, I thought I would try a more healthier accompaniment tonight.
I had some Broccoli to use up and decided on some little courgettes. These were really tasty and also low in fat.
Makes about 10 croquettes
1 large broccoli (about 3 cup fulls of florets)
2 eggs beaten
salt & pepper
1 small onion – finely chopped
1/2 cup of panko breadcrumbs
1 cup of reduced fat cheddar cheese – grated
1/2 tsp garlic powder
- Preheat oven to 210 deg.
- Blanch the broccoli in boiling water for 1 min, then transfer to cold water to stop cooking. Dry off excess water and chop broccoli finely.
- Put eggs, cheese, onion, garlic, sat & pepper into a large mixing bowl then tip in the broccoli and mix through. Add in the panko breadcrumbs and mix again. Place in the fridge for about 1/2 hour to chill, this will help when making croquettes.
- Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Take a small amount into the cup of your hands and shape into a croquette. Place on baking tray and spray with oil. Sprinkle a little paprika on each one and bake for 10 mins.
- Turn over, spray with oil and bake for a further 10 mins or until golden brown and crispy.
