Broccoli and Carrot Biscuits
As I was pureeing some broccoli and carrots for some Broccoli Orzo, I noticed how pretty the vegetables were after they were all crumbled up together! I thought about spreading it on something, and then I thought of incorporating it into our biscuits!
Now, I don't want to mis-lead children of the world! This is not a "hidden veggie" recipe. In fact, these biscuits do in every way taste like broccoli! Which is good for those kids that like broccoli. And it may even be good for those kids who CLAIM they don't like broccoli, but have never really given it a chance.
Either way- All I did was incorporate the processed and chopped carrots and vegetables, into a standard biscuit mix (I used the "heart smart Bisquick", but I've also seen recipes for homemade Bisquick.)
STEP ONE: CUT VEGGIES TO FIT IN FOOD PROCESSOR
STEP 2: CHOP VEGGIES IN FOOD PROCESSOR UNTIL THEY ARE ALL BLENDED
STEP 3: INCORPORATE VEGGIES INTO YOUR FAVORITE BISCUIT MIX
STEP 4: ROLL OUT BISCUITS AND CUT INTO SHAPES OR CIRCLES
STEP 5: ARRANGE BISCUIT DOUGH ONTO A PAN AND SPRINKLE WITH PARMESAN (OPT)
BAKE AT THE RECOMMENDED TEMP FOR YOUR BISCUITS (MINE WAS 450 FOR ABOUT 10 MIN)
STEP 6: EAT!!
The options for biscuit add-ins are endless! You could add herbs, spices, fruits, nuts, etc. What do you think would taste good?
