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.

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time30 mins
Servings: 8 -10

Ingredients

  • 3 cups of fresh broccoli chopped roughly I remove the stems and only use florets
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup gluten free all-purpose flour mix
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta
  • 1 small clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Olive oil for frying

Instructions

  • Separate the florets from their stems.
  • Cut the florets into 1-inch chunks.
  • Add 1/2" of water to large pan and bring to a boil. Add broccoli, cover pan and cook 3-5 minutes
  • Drain the broccoli, then set it aside to cool slightly.
  • Add broccoli to food processor and puree
  • In the bottom of a large bowl, lightly beat your egg.
  • Add the flour, cheese, garlic, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and whisk to combine.
  • Add in the pureed Broccoli and stir together to mix.
  • Set a heavy skillet over medium-high heat and add oil, if oil pops lower heat to medium.
  • 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.
  • Repeat with additional batter, leaving a couple inches between each.
  • 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.
  • Transfer briefly to paper towels to drain, then serve.

  1. Hi, thank you for the great recipe, we all loved it.
    We do however use the whole broccoli including the stems and they turned out delicious and it’s less of a waste of the rest of this healthy vegetable.
