These fritters are a great vegetarian meal or a yummy snack to incorporate more veggies into your diet. I bake mine in the oven as a healthier alternative to frying. However, frying the fritters in a saucepan on a high heat is a faster way to cook them if you are in a hurry.
Preparation Time: 15-20 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 6-10 (depending on the size of your fritters)
Ingredients 3 cups broccoli, riced (see method)
Ĺ cup crumbled feta
Ĺ cup flour
1 clove garlic finely chopped
Pinch of salt and pepper
Pinch of mixed herbs
Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Line a baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
Prepare the broccoli. If you have a food processor cut florets of the broccoli and process them until the broccoli is finely diced. I donít have a food processor but instead use a grater to create the broccoli rice. I find it easier to hold a whole head of broccoli when grating instead of trying to grate individual florets. Alternatively, finely chopping the broccoli with a knife is just fine.
Place the broccoli in a microwave safe bowl and cover with cling wrap. Steam the broccoli by cooking it in the microwave for 3 minutes.
In a separate bowl combine the remaining ingredients then add the broccoli and stir to combine.
Scoop portions of the batter onto the baking tray and using a spoon spread it out to create flat round fritters. I make mine quite big for meal sized portions however you could make them smaller for snack sized servings. Just note smaller sized fritters will take less time to cook.

Cook the fritters in the oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve as is or top with more crumbled feta and maybe a drizzle of balsamic. Serving with a beetroot or Tzatziki dip would also be delicious or use them as a healthy pizza base.
