Broccoli Patties (I haven’t been blogging but I have been baking!)

I haven’t been writing for my blog since February but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy in my kitchen!  A few of my friends have written to ask me where I went.  Haha!  I’m still here and still baking but no new post for my blog because I haven’t been baking something new or something which I find it interesting.

During the last few months, I have accomplished a few stuffs.  In April, I was away on vacation with my sisters in law.  It was a ladies’ trip and we were in South Korea for 12 days.  We went to many beautiful places in Jeonju, Busan and Seoul.  It was a great trip and good break for me too.  
I also attended a 4-day bread making foundation course, learning the fundamental and skills of making breads and also the theoretical and practical part.  So you will be seeing me blogging on breads soon.

In between, I had the opportunity to catch up with friends over meals and also helped out with impromptu baking and cooking session for the under privileged children.  Doing charity work is something that is always closed to my heart…  I’m grateful that I’m able to contribute in the area which I’m passionate in.

So now, allow me to entice you with these wonderful snacks.  Do you like broccoli?  I really like broccoli.  Usually I will steam them and sprinkle with olive oil or simply just fry it with garlic.  This is my first time cooking it differently from what I used to and my family really enjoyed eating it.
 This recipe comes from Sanju, my baking buddy from India.  Sanju and I met at the baking session organized by International Cooking Club and this is one of the wonderful recipes which we made together.



2                 Medium heads broccoli, cut into florets
¼ cup        Small diced onion, lightly sautéed.
¼ cup        Finely ground Japanese breadcrumbs
1                  Large egg
¼ cup        Grated parmesan cheese
2 tsp           Cajun spice

(1)Preheat the oven to 180°C.  Grease non stick baking sheet with cooking spray.

(2)Steam the broccoli florets for 10mins or so until they are just tender.

(3)Thoroughly drain the florets and transfer them to a food processor.  Pulse the broccoli for a few seconds just until it breaks down into small pieces.  Do not over mix the broccoli or the mixture will be too wet to stick together.

(4)Measure out 3 cups of broccoli into a large bowl.  Add the diced onion, breadcrumbs, egg and Parmesan cheese and mix until thoroughly combined.

(5)Scope about 2 tablespoons of the mixture and make into patty.  Arrange them on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 1 inch apart.

(6)Bake them for about 20 minutes then flip over and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes or until crisped. 

(7)Remove the patties from the oven and serve them with ketchep, ranch dressing or hummus for dipping.
