Instructions

Notes

Feel free to sub 1 1/2 cups cooked rice for the quinoa.

Making sure the steamed broccoli is as dry as possible (pat it dry) will allow you to use less flour or bread crumbs. The first time I made this, I did not pat dry the broccoli, and it needed 1/2 cup almond flour. The second time, I patted the broccoli dry, and only needed 1/4 cup flour, if that.

Make sure the quinoa is dry and not watery.

Pick a sauce to serve these!
