Cheesy Broccoli Gems
  1. Blanch the broccoli in boiling water for 1 minute then refresh in iced water. Drain well. Place all the ingredients except for the egg in a food processor and 'pulse' until finely chopped and combined. Add the egg and pulse to combine
  2. Shape approximately 2-3 teaspoons of the mixture, into nugget shapes and place on a baking paper lined tray
  3. Spray the gems with oil and bake at 200°C for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with sour cream or thick yoghurt
Tips & Hints:
  • To "pulse" in the food processor is to use short bursts of power (most food processors do have a pulse button, otherwise use the on/off switch) to chop the food. It prevents over processing so ingredients don't become too fine.
