Veggie Cheese Ball


With the hotter weather, all I feel like doing is snacking on food like this cheese ball. A friend gave me this recipe years ago and it continues to be a yummy way to sneak in some extra raw vegetables!

1 cup shredded carrot
1 cup diced broccoli
4 oz. shredded Cheddar cheese
8 oz cream cheese
1 tsp diced onion

Mix all together. Form into a ball. Refrigerate. Enjoy!

  1. I'll skip the cheddar cheese and maybe add some grated courgette, but I'm going to add that recipe to my repetoire. Thanks for that one. xxxx

  2. Mmmm...that looks good! Not to mention so much healthier than the just baked choc. chip cookies I'm eating! :)

  3. I made this right after I saw the recipe. I used a zucchini, diced small, instead of the broccoli and onion powder to not have a strong onion 'crunch'. It was a big hit! Thanks for a quick and yummy recipe!

    I really don't know how many this would serve. Guess it would depend upon how hungry your guests were and what else you were serving. But I think one batch would be enough for your guests.

  7. The Cheese ball sounds good for snacking. I might substitute finely chopped green pepper or fresh parsley
    for the broccoli. Years ago we would fill celery cavities with a cream cheese mixture and then slice into bite size pieces for a veggie platter.
    Or you could make into a ball as suggested and roll into finely chopped nuts. Another idea for presentation you can place the cheese ball into the center of a pretty glass plate and arrange a variety of crackers around the ball, I make sure knives for spreading are near by and cocktail size napkins available.
