Baked Broccoli Cakes

I normally dislike steamed or cooked vegetables.  I guess it’s a texture thing.  I would rather eat my vegetables raw and enjoy the crunchy sound they make.  But today I wanted to be a bit more adventurous and make a new vegetable to enjoy.

Broccoli should be added to everyone’s diets.  It is a good source for many vitamins and minerals including: Vitamin C, Vitamin K, iron, protein, iron and potassium.  You can eat the broccoli raw or lightly steam it to preserve most of it’s nutritional value.)

In every recipe I post of mine, I remind people that I am not a professional chef … I’m just a mom of 3 who likes to throw things together in a bowl and hope for the best when I bake or cook it! So that being said, enjoy this new recipe!
