I’m happy to say that after wanting to for so long, I have finally been growing my own organic fruit and veg this year. Its my first time so its all new and experimental, especially with ensuring everything is organic and vegan!
This latest recipe has been inspired by my first Broccoli harvest. Im so grateful that all of my Broccoli has turned out really well and is actually edible. Happy is an understatement!
My toddler really loves potatoes at the moment and who can really blame her? She most likely gets that from me! With that in mind and the fact, like most children she is not the biggest fan of Broccoli I wanted to hide it with one of her favourite things. Therefore I have recreated the potato croquette and incorporated the Broccoli to provide her with the greatness this amazing green plant has to offer!
The perfect finger food for kids on the go! These croquettes certainly went down a treat alongside the homemade organic ketchup I made. You can get my ketchup recipe here.
