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 some time, I was searching on the internet a few days ago. In search of new, challenging tips, inspiring meals that I’ve never tested before, to astonish my family with. Hunting for a while unfortunately could not come across lots of interesting stuff. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I came across this delightful and easy treat by accident over Suncakemom. The dessert seemed so mouth-watering on its photo, it called for rapid actions.
It had been simple enough to imagine the way it’s created, its taste and how much my hubby is going to want it. Mind you, it is quite easy to impress the guy in terms of treats. Anyways, I visited the page and simply used the step-by-step instuctions which were combined with great shots of the process. It just makes life much easier. I can suppose it’s a bit of a hassle to shoot photographs down the middle of cooking in the kitchen because you will often have sticky hands so that i seriously appreciate the time and effort she placed in to make this blogpost .
With that in mind I’m empowered to present my own recipes in the same way. Thanks for the thought.
I was tweaking the original recipe to make it for the taste of my family. I can tell you it turned out an awesome success. They loved the taste, the consistency and loved having a delicacy like this during a hectic workweek. They quite simply asked for even more, more and more. Thus the next time I’m not going to commit the same mistake. I am gonna twin the quantity .

Instructions

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.
