I love including broccoli in my diet beacuse its anti-cancer properties, dietary fibers and protein along with a variety of other nutrients. However, boiled broccoli is not my favourite thing ever so I like to “hide” its flovour by combining it with other tasty ingredients. One of my favourite ways to do so is by making a broccoli pie, so today I’m going to show you how to do it. It’s super quick and easy and the result is amazing!
These ingredients are enough to make a 9’’/23cm pie:
- 12 ounces/340g of broccoli florets
- 1⁄4cup of chopped onion
- 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 eggs
- 1⁄2cup of biscuit mix
- 3⁄4cup of milk
- 1 dash of pepper
The first thing you need to do is boil the broccoli. Put some water and salt in a saucepan making sure that the water is enough to cover all the broccoli. Bring the water to a boil and add the florets. Wait for four to five minutes and you’re done.
Then, preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C.
Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the chopped onion and cook, strirring frequently, for 3 minutes. Then, mix the broccoli crowns and the onions together and put them in the pie plate. Spread cheddar cheese over top.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, biscuit mix and pepper and beat the mixture together until it’s blended.
Pour this mixture over the broccoli in a spiral motion (otherwise it may take too long to cook in the middle).
Finally, bake for 25-30 minutes at 350°F/180°C (a knife poked into the middle should come out clean). Let stand for a few minutes before serving.
As you can see in the picture, I sometimes like to add cherry tomatoes and basil just to give the pie a little bit of color and a fresh aroma, but it’s up to you wether you include these ingredients or not.
