These easy Broccoli Fritters take minutes to make with a few basic ingredients. Simple to prep with no special equipment, low-carb and such a crowd pleaser!
Servings 6 fritters
- 1 broccoli head cut into florets
- 1 large egg
- 3 tablespoons minced onions
- 2 garlic cloves pressed
- ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 tablespoons flour optional
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- ¼ teaspoon oregano
- 2 tablespoons avocado oil for frying
In a food processor, pulse the broccoli until it’s the size of fine couscous. You can alternatively chop it with a knife really finely. You should get about 2 cups of grated broccoli.
In a large bowl, combine the broccoli, egg, onions, garlic, cheese, flour (if using) and seasoning. Stir until the mixture is well combined and moistened.
Form the mixture into 1/2-inch thick patties, about 4 inches wide. It will make about 6 fritters.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fritters in batches of 3 and fry, turning once, until crispy, about 10 minutes. Transfer the fritters to a large paper towel-lined plate and cover while you finish cooking the remaining fritters.
Serve the fritters warm with your favorite dipping sauce
Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last up to 5 days in the fridge. Reheat in the microwave, in a skillet with a little olive oil, or in an air fryer before serving.
Freezing Instructions: You can also freeze the fritters before or after cooking them.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutes that would work well in this recipe.
- To freeze them prior to cooking, lay them on a flat baking dish in the freezer for at least 4 hours. When frozen, place them in an airtight bag. Thaw in the fridge overnight and cook per instructions.
- To freeze them after cooking, simply store them in an airtight bag after they've cooled. To re-heat, thaw in the fridge overnight and bake in a 350°F oven until heated through.
Nutritional Data: The information below is an automated estimate for one fritter. It could vary based on cooking methods and ingredients used. It does not include the dipping sauce.
- Instead of eggs, you can use flax eggs. For each regular egg, use 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 3 tablespoons water.
- Any type of shredded cheese can be used
- Use 1:1 GF flour to make them gluten-free
