It has been one of those weeks when posting has had to take a back seat despite all the recipes I am eager to share. Each evening this week I have worked late resulting in limited chore time, practically non-existent me time, and absolutely no blog time.
On evenings when I get home late my pre-set timer always overcooks my steamed vegetables since I am not there to take off the lid (at least we can say it is a consistent appliance). Since I have teeth, I often don’t feel like eating baby food style broccoli. Thus I quickly make it into a protein broccoli casserole type loaf.
Broccoli Protein Casserole Style Loaf
•1/2 cup steamed overcooked broccoli
•2 tbsp kamut flour
•1 tbsp unsweetened whey protein powder
•1 tbsp coconut flour
•1/4 tsp baking soda•1/4 tsp baking powder
•1/3 cup egg whites
•salt, Italian seasoning
1)Towel off steamed broccoli to remove excess moisture2)Add in all dry ingredients mixing well
3)Add egg whites
4)Microwave for 3 minutes, flip microwave for an additional 1.5 minutes.
5)Toast and Top
This recipe takes wasted ingredients (overcooked broccoli and makes it delicious!). It can be made in under 7 minutes if you have all the ingredients close by.
A great mix of protein and carbs. Top with some healthy fats to help make a complete meal: 16g carbs/17g protein/1g fat.
Very flexible recipe as you can get creative with spices you add. I have made this recipe adding taco flavouring and topped with sour cream and salsa and it was quite incredible!
Unlike a lot of recipes that use steamed vegetables this loaf is not mushy or overly moist. Especially once toasted it is perfectly firm and loaf like.
I used a microwave safe flat square dish to microwave this.
