So basic, why I haven’t I never created a broccoli and cheddar ANYTHING on the blog!?
Sometimes I kick myself, because I try so hard to create original recipes that will excite you, when many of you truly want health ways to use your spiralizer, even if that means a basic combo like “broccoli and cheddar.”
Soup, muffin, casserole – this combo is comfort food at its finest and with the help of the Inspiralizer, you get more broccoli and texture in each muffin!
These muffin cavities are filled with spiralized broccoli stem (yes, you can spiralize broccoli) as well as the florets, so you’re getting the nutrients both from the stem and florets! And, minimizing waste, of course.
My favorite way to spiralize broccoli is by saving the stems for future use. So, instead of spiralizing the stems whenever I’m using the florets only in a recipe, I’ll save the stems in a bag and then later in the week, spiralize them for a new dish. There’s a killer Spicy Sausage, and Quinoa Broccoli Pasta in my next cookbook, you’re going to love!
Anddd these are definitely baby friendly! I tested them on Luca and he LOVED them! I sliced them up into strips so he could grab them more easily. And if you have a little one too and looking for more baby food inspiration, check out @inspiralizedkids, our Facebook page, and our Inspiralized Mamas group!
More to come on the kids front, but in the mean time, I hope you enjoy these adult and kid friendly muffins!
Oh, and yes, you can make them into donuts too! You’ll just need a donut pan, but the instructions are the same!
