When it comes to affordable dinners, you can’t beat this variation on vegetarian stuffed potatoes filled with cheesy broccoli. It’s cheesy and gooey, packed with flavour and comfort.
One of my favourite dinners when I was a kid, was a (probably over-processed) chicken with a cheesy broccoli filling. It was just comfort food, and there was such joy in cutting it open and seeing the cheese ooze out.
This is a vegetarian twist on my childhood favourite. Instead of being squeezed into chicken, it’s plonked atop a soft, baked potato.
If you are feeding younger children, you could chop the broccoli up into smaller bits, or even swap for a different vegetable, like cauliflower. This budget-friendly recipe is a great one to wheel out when you want to make something easy, while also nutritious. You can even just wrap the potatoes in foil and cook them in the slow cooker, if you’re having a busy day and want half the work done by dinner time. All you’ll have to do is whip up the broccoli stuffing, and you’re done!
