BROCCOLI PIE

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
  • 14cup of chopped onion
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 12cup of biscuit mix
  • 34cup 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.
