After I came to know the benefits of broccoli I desperately tried to add this very vegetable in our meals. However, I never succeeded to do the same, because nobody liked it. One of my friends suggested frying broccoli. I cooked that, but I never succeeded to make that delicious. That problem was that, due to the lack of taste, I had to finish the rest of the dish every time. There were very rare occasion, when my hubby dear finished. So, one day I searched on the Internet to find a suitable and easy recipe, yet delicious to cook broccoli. I found one recipe, but at that time I didn’t have all the ingredients to cook. So, I altered the recipe, and I baked with whatever was available at home. Surprisingly, that was an instant hit.
After that I have baked broccoli many times in the same way, and whoever has eaten that, said only one word, “delicious”.
10-12 florets of broccoli
2 tbsp. Heaped all-purpose flour
½ tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 tsp of sugar
1 ½ tbsp oil (I used olive oil. Any kind of oil or butter can be used.)
1 tbsp grated mozzarella cheese (you can cheddar cheese also)
Boil the broccoli florets with pinch salt until the florets become just tender. Do not over-boil. Discard the water as much as possible, because the water content in the florets can be a problem in baking. In a bowl add all the ingredients except the florets and cheese. Make the fine batter. If you need, add little milk. Grease a baking tray, and pour the batter into it. Arrange the florets on the batter. Sprinkle cheese from the top. Bake of 20 minutes or a fork comes out clean when you prick in the middle. The broccoli bake is ready. Serve hot with tea or coffee.
