We eat a lot of Broccoli in our house.   I mean A LOT!  My youngest has been complaining about it lately, so I have been coming up with new ways to serve him his broccoli.

Why do we eat so much of the green stuff?  Because it is so darn good for you!  Broccoli is such a nutritional superstar that I want to make sure we keep it as a regular on our dinner plates.

This recipe is a super simple to pull together, and quite fun.  Perfect to have the kids get involved in making {except the frying, too much splatter}.  I like to serve it with a sprinkle of additional feta, or a dollop of sour cream.  I like to make extras and pull them out the next day to enjoy for lunch.

Serves: 8-10
Ingredients
  • 3 cups of fresh broccoli chopped roughly (I remove the stems and only use florets)
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup gluten free all-purpose flour mix
  • ½ cup crumbled feta
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup Olive oil for frying
Instructions
  1. Separate the florets from their stems.
  2. Cut the florets into 1-inch chunks.
  3. Add ½" of water to large pan and bring to a boil. Add broccoli, cover pan and cook 3-5 minutes
  4. Drain the broccoli, then set it aside to cool slightly.
  5. Add broccoli to food processor and puree
  6. In the bottom of a large bowl, lightly beat your egg.
  7. Add the flour, cheese, garlic, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and whisk to combine.
  8. Add in the pureed Broccoli and stir together to mix.
  9. Set a heavy skillet over medium-high heat and add oil, if oil pops lower heat to medium.
  10. Once the oil is hot (you can test it by flicking a droplet of water into it; it should hiss and sputter), scoop a two tablespoon-size mound of the batter and drop it into the pan, then flatten it slightly with your spoon or spatula.
  11. Repeat with additional batter, leaving a couple inches between each.
  12. Once brown underneath, about 2 to 3 minutes, flip each fritter and cook on the other side until equally golden, about another 1 to 2 minutes.
  13. Transfer briefly to paper towels to drain, then serve.

    These look delicious but are labeled as gluten free. How can that be if they contain flour? As a celiac, I know to substitute gf flour but someone who is trying to prepare food for someone else that is gf might not realize it, possibly thinking 1/2 cup might not matter. Thanks for the recipe!

      Karen, you are right, the ingredient was suppose to say gluten free all purpose flour mix. I apologize for the mistake. You need to use either a gluten free flour mix or you could use a mix of 1/3 cup coconut flour + 2 tablespoon tapioca flour to help hold the firtters together. I hope you give the recipe a try!
