Broccoli Fritters


  • 2 cups broccoli florets, washed
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Add the broccoli in a large microwave-safe bowl with 3 tablespoons of water.  Cover and microwave on high for 3 minutes.  Alternatively, you can cook them for 5 minutes in boiling water and then drain them well.

Step 2: Cut the broccoli in small pieces, and then place them in a large bowl.

Step 3: Add the flour, Parmesan cheese, and eggs, and mix well with a spoon, trying to mash the broccoli until the mixture is as creamy as possible.

Step 4: Add the garlic, salt, and pepper and mix well.

Step 5: Heat 3-4 tablespoons of oil in a non-stick pan.

Step 6: Scoop 2 tablespoons of the mixture into the pan. flatten it to form a 1cm thick fritter, and cook for 2 minutes on each side.

Step 7: Repeat these steps with the rest of the mixture.

Step 8: Serve hot, and sprinkle more salt to taste.
