Broccoli & Cheese Pockets

The classic combination of broccoli and cheese is a winner all on its own. Place it inside a crispy pocket made from potato and you’ve got a mouth watering new way of enjoying this common favorite. What makes this recipe really unique is that its made of truly healthy and healing ingredients. There’s no cheese, milk, gluten, or butter. It’s even fat free, which makes it an ideal snack or meal for anyone trying to support their liver, which is an integral part of healing from chronic illnesses and symptoms. 

Potatoes are an important food for those who are heavy thinkers and those recovering from stress damage and adrenal exhaustion. They are also particularly beneficial for depression, insomnia, sleep disorders, brain fog, and stress related illnesses. Potatoes are also known to be good for promoting cardiovascular health and are highly beneficial for reducing the risk of heart attack, stroke, atherosclerosis, and COPD. 

Broccoli is highly beneficial for the nervous system and is known to ease migraines, hypertension, anxiety, and nervous ticks. It contains natural antihistamine properties and is fantastic for warding off seasonal allergies, watery eyes, sinusitis, sinus infections, colds, flu, and bronchitis. Broccoli is well known for its ability to protect against heart disease and reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, strokes, and heart attacks. 

Broccoli & Cheese Potato Pockets

Ingredients:

Cheese sauce:

Broccoli filling:

  • 1 ¼ cup broccoli, finely chopped 
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Sea salt, to taste

Directions:

In a large pot fitted with a steaming basket, add the potatoes and carrots. Add a few inches of water and steam until soft, about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove and cool for 10-15 minutes, until cool enough to handle. Remove one potato and one carrot from the pot and set aside for the cheese sauce.

Place the remaining potatoes in a large, flat-bottomed bowl or pot and mash until they are broken down. Add the potato starch, tapioca flour and oregano and mash until the flour and starch are well combined. If the mixture is very dry, add a bit of warm water. If the mixture is very wet, add a bit more tapioca flour. The dough should be pliable and not stick to your fingers. Set aside while you make the filling.

Place the left-over potato and carrot in a small food processor or blender and add the turmeric, garlic powder, cayenne, lemon juice, sea salt, black pepper and water/vegetable stock. Blend until smooth. Add a bit more liquid if necessary, then set aside. 

Steam the chopped broccoli until cooked. Remove and add to bowl. Add the lemon juice and season with sea salt.

To make the pockets, take a handful of the potato mixture and roll it into a ball. Flatten the sides out so that there is a cavity in the middle, then add a couple teaspoons of the cheese sauce and broccoli. Close the pocket gently and smooth out any creases. Repeat with remaining dough.

Add the pockets on a ceramic nonstick pan and cook for 5-10 minutes on either side, until browned and crispy. You can bake them in the oven at 350F for an additional 20 minutes if you want them even more crispy. 

Makes 4-5 pockets.
