They are all green and delicious too. After trying cauliflower patties, I tried broccoli patties. I changed the recipe a little; the texture is softer.
for about fifteen patties :
- 1 egg
- 500 g broccoli
- 80 g of flour
- 2 portions of laughing cow cheese
- 1 heaping tablespoon of cottage cheese
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon of mustard
- 200 g of chicken
- 1 small onion
- In a frying pan, brown the chicken cut into small pieces and the chopped onion. Do not overcook the meat. Set aside.
- Steam the broccoli in a pot of boiling salted water. Drain and place in a bowl. Coarsely crush or puree if you don’t want chunks. Add the two portions of the laughing cow cheese (they will melt with the heat of the broccoli). Then add the cottage cheese, the flour, the egg, the crushed garlic, the cooked meat, and the onion. Add half a teaspoon of mustard. Add salt and pepper.
- Mix well.
- Heat a little oil in a pan and form small piles of dough. Let cook a few minutes on each side.
- Serve hot.
Verdict: they are soft, crispy on the outside if you let them brown nicely. This is a great way to get kids to eat broccoli.
You can use heavy cream instead of cottage cheese. Grated cheese can be added.
You can remove the chicken or replace it with salmon, canned tuna, or ham.
We liked the pretty green color of the patties.
To give an excellent round shape to my patties, I use a round metal cookie cutter, I put it in my pan, I put a good spoonful of dough in it, and I let it cook a little before taking off the galette and turning it over without the cookie cutter this time.
They can be prepared in advance and reheated in the pan at the last minute.
For a lighter meal, bake them on a sheet of parchment paper. Turn them over during cooking (I have no idea how long it takes to cook them in the oven, about 15 minutes at 180°, so it’s worth testing)
