It has certainly been awhile since my kitchen has seen any cooking action. Between the heat, events, dinners out, and a wonky appetite, I have avoided cooking in favor of eating something, anything I didn’t prepare.
It was time to get back into it with a little help from my friend Pinterest. I found a recipe for cheesy broccoli bites and decided to make my own take on it.
4 cups of chopped broccoli
1 cup (dry) of red rice, soaked overnight and cooked until al dente
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
This recipe is simple; just mix everything together, preferably with your hands, and form balls with the mix. Pop the broccoli bites into an oven that’s been preheated to 375, and bake for 20 minutes.
Once the broccoli bites are done, they will be a little bit larger due to the melty cheese. This is not a bad thing.
Serve with a creamy honey mustard sauce, mine is about 1/4 cup Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup brown mustard and a blob of honey. Enjoy!
These broccoli bites would be a fun and not-too-indulgent treat for a party or for dinner with a salad. I bet bacon would be a nice addition. . .
We love appetizer style meals, and these made for a fun dinner.
What do you do when you lose your cooking mojo?
