Passover – Here We Come!
What could possibly go wrong when you mix some broccoli florets with cheddar cheese and diced jalapeño? I mean, how about the perfect bite? A heaping tablespoon of yummy perfection, that tastes like broccoli cheddar soup with a spicy kick! Enter my Broccoli Cheddar Jalapeño Scones – and let the drooling begin!
This isn’t your cardboard-tasting Pesach food. Nah, this is a cross between “corn” bread and a savory scone, so how about “brone”? Okay, that probably won’t catch on anytime soon.
All About Ease
Here’s the deal with this recipe. You can either use fresh, raw broccoli (my fav) or, thawed frozen broccoli (my savior for making this easy-peasy). And we all know how annoying it is to wash broccoli that could be chock-full of bugs (sorry, but it’s true), so why not buy a giant bag of frozen broccoli and make a huge batch of these scones to have during Pesach and all year ’round!
We Want to Hear From You!
And stay tuned for much more Passover recipes coming to you soon from Daniel and me. We love getting inspiration from other Kosher food bloggers, social media, or just browsing through the hottest cookbook, to give you our spin! I personally love bringing a new perspective on classic dishes, but if there is something that you’d like for either of us to try out, let us know by submitting your comment below! Maybe a fresh new take on stuffed cabbage, or macaroons?
Passover may not seem like the ideal time to experiment with new flavors but we say “why not” – let’s break free from what we “think” we know Passover food should be! And yes, there is SO much more than brisket and matzah pizza! 🙂
Thank you dear readers for your loyalty to MYV, and we wish you all a Chag Kasher V’Sameach, a Happy Passover and Happy Easter too!
- 2 cups Almond Flour
- 1/4 cup Coconut Flour
- 2 Eggs. whisked
- 1 tbsp Baking powder
- 2 cups Diced Broccoli Either fresh or frozen (thawed)
- 1 Jalapeño, diced Either use fresh or pickled, but if you want to tone down the heat, remove the seeds and ribs. Don't like it hot? Use diced red peppers, or pimentos instead!
- 1/3 cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1/2 tsp Pepper
- 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp Heavy whipping cream
Pre-heat the oven to 325F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix all ingredients (except remaining 2 tbsp. of heavy cream) in a giant bowl using a wooden spoon until a thick dough comes together.
Using your hands, add the dough in the center of the pan in a circular square shape.
Cut the dough into big squares and then cut each square on a diagonal to resemble triangles. You can try and separate the dough once you cut it, but I find it easier to leave as is, then it just comes out like "pull apart" scones.
Using a pastry brush, brush the top of the scone/bread with the heavy cream.
Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown.
Serve alongside by herby cabbage salad and a scoop of tuna fish for a hearty pre-seder meal!
