  • 2 cups broccoli fresh or frozen
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 4 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup parmesan shredded
  • 3/4 cup gluten free breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
  • Blanch uncooked broccoli by throwing into a pot of boiling water for 2 minutes only, then plunging into a bowl of ice cold water. Drain & then finely chop.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine your finely chopped broccoli with all of the remaining ingredients, stirring until all is well combined.
  • Take an ice cream scooped dollop and shape it in your hands, squeezing with the palm of one hand, while simultaneously rotating and flattening the ends with the thumb & index finger of your other hand...forming a cylinder shaped bite. Repeat with remaining batter.
  • Place your bites on your parchment lined cookie sheet & bake for 22 minutes, or until desired golden crispiness, flipping halfway through cooking time.
  • Great on its own or served with a favorite condiment.
  • Enjoy
