makes 4-6 depending on how big you make your patties
1 Head of Broccoli
1/2 C Almond Flour or Almond Meal
1/3 C Grated parmesan
Olive oil for frying
1/2 C Toasted Pumpkin seeds
juice and zest from 1/2 a lemon
1 TSP of smoked Paprika & Cummin (or any spice of your choice)
S + P to taste
optional: 1 clove of roasted garlic.
STEP 1: Cut up your Broccoli into smaller pieces and steam until tender.
STEP 2: Toast off your seed’s in a dry pan until golden.
STEP 3: Place your toasted seed’s in a Mortar & Pestle (if you don’t have one, just put them inside a tea towel and roll with a rolling pin) and crush. These help to hold the mix together with the eggs and almond flour, as well as adding a little extra flavour and texture.
STEP 4: Once your broccoli has cooled, chop up into tiny bite size pieces and place into a mixing bowl along with the rest of your ingredients and give it a mix.
STEP 5: Using a potato masher or fork, mash the broccoli into the mixture until you have a nice chunky batter.
STEP 6: In a fry pan, heat your olive oil to medium heat and spoon 2TBS size amounts per fritter. Leave to fry for 2-3 minutes each side
STEP 7: Keep frying and flipping until you have a golden stack of Broccoli Fritters ready to eat!
