This recipe is perfect for adults and kids.
It’s great appetizer to share with friends and it’s also a nice idea if you need a vegetarian recipe.
Ingredients for 4 servings:
18 ounces of boiled broccoli
3.5 ounces of grated parmesan cheese
2 tbs bread crumbs + more for the breading
2 eggs
pinch of salt
1.5 ounces of mozzarella cheese cut in small cubes
olive oil

broccolini balls


I put the broccoli in a bowl, after let them cool down, and I mashed them.
I added the parmesan cheese, the eggs, the bread crumbs, salt and I mixed all the ingredients together.
I chilled the mix in the fridge for 1 hour.
I preheated the oven at 355 F and I made balls putting in the middle a small mozzarella cube and I coated them with bread crumbs.
I put the balls on a pan covered with parchment paper and I poured few drops of olive of oil on top and I baked them for 18 minutes turning them at half baking time.

They are simply fantastic – seeing is believing
