This Lectin-Free Vegan "Cheesy" Broccoli Bites recipe is perfect when you want a healthy and savory snack and you can make it with ingredients you probably already have on hand.
Gluten-Free Vegan "Cheesy" Broccoli Bites
I think this is one of my most favorite snacks to make. Sometimes I'll make a batch and eat it all as a meal. Sometimes I'll add the crispy broccoli pieces on top of a salad with my Healthy Honey Mustard Dressing.
I use my Gluten-Free Vegan Bread Crumb recipe which takes less than 5 minutes to make and is great to keep on hand to make some of my healthy oven-baked recipes shown below.
You can make it with either fresh or frozen broccoli (I use both depending on what I have on hand) and either one will work. You may have to leave them in the oven 5-10 minutes longer if you use frozen broccoli.
And although I love my olive oil (especially this brand), when baking something in the oven at high heat, like 400 degrees in this recipe, I always use avocado oil instead of extra-virgin olive oil.
This healthy recipe is made with clean, real food ingredients and is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, lectin-free and paleo-friendly.
