I have to say these are yummy and healthy. I made two batches last week. My husband loved it. He had some for dinner and then popped two more in his lunch box. Normally, he is not a big fan for broccoli and tofu.
This recipe has three of my favourite ingredients. Broccoli is full of fiber and vitamins, and Tofu is a good source of protein, iron and calcium. Then, there is the black rice/Forbidden rice, which is packed with antioxidants and fiber. (Fiber! The more the better! 🙂 )
I reckon it’s another way to eat more vegetables and tofu. I used store-bought tea infused firm tofu. You can just use firm tofu instead if you can’t find one.
They are super easy to make. If you have a food processor or a blender, it will do all the work for you.
My food processor is not big enough, so I just let it chop everything for me. Then, I mixed it in a bowl with a spoon.
I used a baking tray to bake these little bits. After I mixed all the ingredients together, I used a small measuring cup from IKEA to scoop the mixture out and placed on the baking tray.
If you don’t have a small measuring cup, you can just use your hand. Alternatively, a muffin tray will do.
These can be eaten warm or cold. I like to make them in batches and keep in a container in my fridge. They are perfect as a quick and healthy breakfast/lunch solution with some fruit or salad. You can have them as snacks or even party food too. 🙂
