Broccoli Cheese Fritters

by | Feb 27, 2013 | Blog, Healthy Recipes | 0 comments

When you, or as in our case the food bank, have tons of broccoli, a great way to eat it is as a fritter!  It’s a super easy and fun recipe to make with kids.  We found the best way to mix this batter is to squeeze and squish it all together with our hands.

3 cups chopped broccoli
1/3 cup grated cheese
1 egg
1 clove garlic, minced
½ cup flour
½ teaspoon salt
ground pepper or red pepper flakes to taste


  1. Bring ½ inch of water to boil in a small pot.  Add the broccoli and cover with a lid.  Simmer for 5-6 minutes.  Drain.  Mash lightly and set aside to cool.
  2. In a large bowl, lightly beat the egg.  Add flour, cheese, garlic, salt and pepper.  Add the cooled broccoli and stir ingredients together.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat.  Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan and let heat up.  Drop a heaping tablespoon mound of batter into the pan and press down lightly to flatten. Cook 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.  Transfer to paper towels to drain.
  4. Enjoy as is or topped with plain yogurt.
