Broccoli Fritters

Looking for hiding vegetables from plain sight or just really into broccoli? Let’s make broccoli fritters and hide veggies no more!

As I currently have a little time, I had been looking on the web the other day. Looking for new, interesting tips, inspirational dishes that I have never used before, to amaze my loved ones with. Hunting for a while yet could not come across too many interesting things. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I discovered this delicious and easy treat by chance on Suncakemom. It looked so delightful on its snapshot, it required fast action.
It absolutely was not so difficult to imagine just how it’s made, its taste and how much my hubby will want it. Actually, it is quite simple to please the man when it comes to cakes. Anyways, I visited the website and then followed the precise instuctions that had been combined with great pictures of the procedure. It just makes life faster and easier. I could suppose it is a bit of a effort to shoot snap shots in the midst of cooking in the kitchen as you may typically have sticky hands and so i seriously appreciate the time and energy she devote for making this blogpost and recipe easily followed.
With that said I am inspired presenting my own, personal recipes in the same way. Many thanks the concept.
I was fine tuning the initial formula create it for the taste of my family. I can say it was a great outcome. They enjoyed the flavor, the thickness and enjoyed getting a delicacy like this in the middle of a stressful week. They ultimately wanted lots more, a lot more. Thus the next occasion I’m not going to commit the same miscalculation. I am likely to double the amount .

This is based on the Broccoli Fritters Recipe from SunCakeMom


Take the broccoli to florets. The smaller the better.
Rice the broccoli florets by chopping them up in a food processor. Alternatively a fine shredder or sharp knife can also be used.
Microwave the riced broccoli until totally heats up. It takes about two minutes on the highest setting.
Get a cheesecloth or a not so precious kitchen cloth and wrap a batch of hot riced broccoli up tightly.
Squeeze out the excess water as much as possible. 1lb broccoli may yield about a cup water.
Add the cheddar, finely cut onion, eggs, salt and any optional spices and herbs then mix it well together.
Make balls out of the broccoli fritters dough. Alternatively make disc shapes. Heat a tablespoon of oil to medium and add the broccoli balls.
Spread them out by pressing them down with a spatula. Apply a thin film of oil on the spatula so it won’t stick.
Fry until golden brown then flip to the other side. It takes about 4 minutes on medium heat per side.
