Broccoli Cakes

As with all most moms, I'm struggling to get my mini-muffins to eat vegetables.

Actually, they do frequently ask for raw carrots with dip and enjoy bites of my salad.

But really, the 3-5 servings of veggies are sadly lacking.

Unless I count french fries, crackers and fruit snacks. 

So, here is another veggie recipe to add to your arsenal of child-friendly veggies. 

(Um, not that they ate these.)
Yet another of the easiest recipes ever.

This was a perfect addition to Uncle Baby's porkchops, and my dad, a vegetarian, loved them.

(Note, again, that I didn't say the mini-muffins loved them...)

I used this recipe from Smitten Kitchen to make my own version. 

Broccoli Fritters
Ingredients
2 bags steamable broccoli (this is fastest)
6 eggs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/3 cup flour
1.5 tablespoons garlic powder

Step #1: Steam that broccoli! (Use the instructions on the bag, please.)

Step #2: Beat eggs and add Parmesan, flour and garlic powder.

Step #4: Add broccoli to egg mixture. 

Step #5: Heat oil in a frying pan and fry batter like pancakes.

Step #6: We dipped these in sour cream and/or BBQ sauce.  Delicious.
