Happy Thursday! Recipe of the day is Cauliflower, Broccoli & Cheese Bites – simple, tasty and loaded with cheese, well with veggies too! 🙂
Is it Spring yet? The weather today was amazing and we actually got lots of sunshine. Hopefully this doesn’t change in the next few days. We really need the sun to come out more often and the temperatures to rise. 🙂 I’ve had enough of the cold and gloomy weather, colds and runny noses. Plus, it’s time to start making some fresh and tasty Spring recipes with lots of yummy veggies and fruit.
And I know, once Spring is here, many of us start planning the Summer – holidays, get in shape programs and whatnot. It’s just so exciting! The holiday part, I mean. Meanwhile, we’re gonna have to wait patiently and hope for more sunny days!
And now back to the recipe again…I was about to make Cauliflower and Cheese with Broccoli but then I thought I might make something a bit different this time and mix thing up a little bit. This is what happened. These bites are actually even easier to make and take a few minutes. All you need is a blender and then the rest is left to the oven. Apart from the cauliflower and broccoli, I used single cream, eggs and a generous amount of cheese. There is no flour so these bites are tasty gluten-free option too and are not that high in calories. Well, they’re pretty healthy(probably with a bit less cheese though). 🙂
They’re actually quite like a breakfast bites with all the cheese and eggs. 🙂 Also, they’re perfect for snacking all day long. 🙂 And the colour they turned is quite pretty, isn’t it. It’s so bright and fresh!
The kids enjoyed them too. They were really attracted to the muffin-sized bites and actually had a few of them. So that was a success! 🙂
They usually eat broccoli but are not fans of cauliflower. Well, I don’t think they realised there’s cauliflower but that was not necessary at all, was it. 🙂
It’s amazing how many things you can actually prepare in a muffin tray. It seems muffin trays are not what they used to be anymore. 🙂 I’ve made different breakfast bites and I simply loved them. I have to admit it, cooking nowadays has become really inventive.
