Method

  1. Boil (or steam) broccoli until it is tender, but not mushy. We did this on the stove, but you could also use a microwave.
  2. Using a masher, roughly mash the broccoli. The aim of this is not to create a ‘mash’ as such, but just to crush the broccoli so the fritters can be cooked flat.
  3. Crack the egg in a bowl and lightly beat. Add the flour, parmesan, garlic and milk. Mix well to combine.
  4. Add the crushed broccoli into the batter mixture. Do not drain it first as the liquid helps to create a nice batter. Mix until broccoli is evenly dispersed.
  5. Heat half the oil in a pan, and then scoop the fritters into the pan. We used around 1/4 cup of batter for each fritter, and cooked a few at a time. Make sure you flatten the batter slightly when you place it in the pan.
  6. Cook for 2-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown in colour. Repeat until batter is all gone, serve warm.

Notes

If you plan to use the broccoli stem in this recipe, make sure that you peel the outside skin from the stem. This skin is thick, and will not mash well. Once peeled, dice and use the inside flesh as normal.
