These "cheese" sticks are a great gluten-free snack that can be made grain-free. I'm a huge fan of using vegetables as a base for baked food. Muffins, crackers, cookies, brownies, you name it- why NOT add nutrients. This recipe is toddler and mama-approved. Broccoli is rich in Vitamin C and K as well as the strongest antioxidant known to man, sulforophane. Better to lightly steam broccoli to retain its powerful nutrients. Our family loves nutritional yeast- saccharomyces cerevisiae- a protein-rich, B vitamin-packed food additive. It is a cheesy, sometimes flaky powder that is easy to add to eggs, potatoes, veggies or popcorn. My son just eats it plain with his fingers. I added turmeric for even more anti-oxidant potential- a liver cleanser, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.
