  1. I did this recently too, and my son ate them up very happily! He wouldn’t eat broccoli usually ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yes it’s a good idea๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. Woohoo! I’m glad the lunchbox was empty! And, from broccoli of all things. This dish does look absolutely scrumptious, and I’m sure everyone at the fiesta will enjoy a bite. Happy FF, and have a delightful weekend. ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Would you make some for my lunchbox too please Nimmi ๐Ÿ˜› These sound so yummy and just the type of food I love. Thanks for sharing at Fiesta Friday, I’m sure they’ll be a hit. Have you tried making them with a gluten free flour – I’m thinking rice flour or oat flour?
