Broccoli Protein Casserole Style Loaf

Posted Nov 24 2012 8:39am
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.

Convenience
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.

Health
A great mix of protein and carbs. Top with some healthy fats to help make a complete meal: 16g carbs/17g protein/1g fat.
Taste
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!
Texture
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.
General Comments I used a microwave safe flat square dish to microwave this.

What do you do when you accidentally overcook something?
