These Broccoli Balls with Flax Seeds Will Be Your Next Obsession

Imagine a homemade falafel, but healthier, tastier, and even prettier.  We present to you one of our favorite Dish Kitch snacks, which also serve as a superfood side dish – Broccoli Balls with Flax Seeds. These little balls of perfection are gluten-free, ketogenic, and easily made vegan by omitting the egg. If you do omit the egg, simply whisk three tablespoons of water with a tablespoon of flax seeds, and let the mixture sit until it becomes gelatinous.

Flax seeds are rich in cancer-fighting, heart-healthy nutrients, and are a vegan source of protein and omega 3 fatty acids.  

We all know broccoli is a nutrient powerhouse, but it’s not always easy to eat as much as we probably should. This recipe makes it easy to fight cancer, prolong life span, increase bone density, and promote regularity, one broccoli bite at a time.
