  • Author: Eat Drink Shrink
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 20 broccoli bites & 1 cup sauce 1x



Broccoli bites: 

  • 1 cup Panko italian bread crumbs (you can use regular Panko)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 12 heads of broccoli, chopped into florets
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • Salt/Pepper as desired


  • 1 cup grilled tomatoes or 1 large tomato 
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 4 medium red bell peppers
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • salt/pepper as desired 
  • 1 tbs chopped fresh parsley 
  • squeeze lemon (optional)
  • salt/pepper as desired


  1. Bites: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut the broccoli into florets.
  2. Set up 2 bowls. In one large bowl add the flour, almond milk and spices, combine to remove all clumps. In a smaller bowl add the italian Panko.
  3. Dip the broccoli in the batter, letting the excess drip off, then roll in the Panko until completely covered.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown. Rotate midway for an even bake.
  5. Romesco: Throw everything in a food processor and blend until smooth. You can soak the almonds for a smoother texture or even roll the broccoli bites in the sauce rather if desired!
