Healthy Batter "Fried" Broccoli
I love fried zucchini (what's not to love?) and am constantly being tempted by recipes that promise the same taste from an oven rather than a deep fryer. I try and try these recipes but the result is always soggy. Each time I vow to give up on the idea but then I find myself staring at a recipe's photo that looks so...so...crispy and I fall for it again.
1 Small head or half a large head of broccoli, cut into florets
1/2 Cup all purpose flour
1/2 Cup low-fat milk
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1/4 Teaspoon pepper
2 oz. Grated Parmesan cheese, divided
Top with the remaining grated cheese and serve either as a vegetable side dish or a cocktail snack with your favorite dip.
