Croquettes de brocoli

I found the recipe on the internet and wanted to try it. It looked so yummy that I ran to my organic grocery to find a brocoli and test this discovery. Instead to bake the preparation in a muffin tin, I’ve decided to change a bit the recipe and shape the mixture into a kind of fingers. Well I know, it doesn’t really look like a finger but I wasn’t able to find a good translation of the french word « croquette ». Let’s just forget the name and try this recipe straightaway!
