Veggie Bites

Last veggie bite standing

My 4 year old daughter is a very fussy eater, she needs lots of flavour in her food, bland is not in her dictionary, just like her dad😉. Yep! It is a mission getting her to eat. I found this yummy recipe on instagram. To be honest it wasn’t yummy enough for my daughter but my husband and I enjoyed them so I gave myself a pat on my shoulder😅. I did tweak the ingredients slightly from the original recipe, I added salt and ginger garlic paste and next time I will try and add some meat or more pepper or other spices to give that extra bit of flavour for my little madam. By flavour I don’t mean she loves spicy, uh oh! if her food is spicy that means I’ve pushed her ‘tantrum button’😏😣. All kids have this button right? Well if your child doesn’t then wow you must have an angel, congratulations😂.

This recipe is ideal for snack time or even lunch or dinner, its healthy and yummy. We had ours for a light lunch


1 cup broccoli
1 1/2 cups cauliflower
1 cup grated cheese
1 cup breadcrumbs
2 whisked eggs
Pinch of Ginger garlic paste
Chopped fresh Parsley
Black pepper to taste
Salt to taste


Preheat the oven at 180°C

Line a baking tray

Boil the cauliflower and broccoli florets until a little soft

Roughly chop into small pieces

Put all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and combine.

Shape into tots or patties and put on a lined baking tray.

Pop into the oven for 15-20 minutes.
This made about 20 bites but some were different size as my daughter did them.

Serve with cheese and maybe some mayonnaise. Hubby ate his with mayonnaise and chilli sauce as you don’t qualify to be an Asian if you don’t add chilli to your food😅.
