  • ½ ib broccoli florets
  • 1 ` egg
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • ½ clove garlic, minced (½ tsp)
  • tsp salt
  • tsp black pepper
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  • Bring a medium-sized pot of salted water to a boil. Add the broccoli florets and cook them just until they are fork-tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Drain the broccoli well, allow to cool and rice in a blender/food processor. Alternately, use a large, sharp knife and cutting board to cut them into very small pieces
  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine the riced/chopped broccoli, egg, Parmesan, flour, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir until well combined.
  • Place a cast iron or non-stick pan over medium heat until hot. Add the oil and swirl to coat the pan (a non-stick pan needs less oil).
  • Scoop out 2- to 3-tablespoon mounds of the broccoli mixture into the pan, flattening the mounds slightly with a spatula and spacing them about one inch apart.
  • Cook the fritters for 2 to 3 minutes, flip and cook them for an additional 1 to 2 minutes until they’re golden brown and cooked through.
  • If you prefer, fritters can be baked at 425℉ for 10-12 minutes.
  • Hack: Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or frozen for up to 2 months.
  • Hack: Riced broccoli can be found in the freezer section of your grocery store. Steam according to package instructions.
  • Broccoli Hack: Check the produce department of your local grocery store for pre-cut broccoli florets to avoid having to buy an entire head. If you don't see them, ask a clerk if they're available.
