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 lately have some time, I had been surfing on the web the other day. Trying to find fresh, intriguing ideas, inspiring recipes that I have never tasted before, to treat my loved ones with. Looking for a while yet could not discover too many interesting stuff. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I stumbled on this yummy and easy dessert by chance. The dessert looked so scrumptious on its photo, that required immediate actions.
It had been not difficult to imagine the way it is created, how it tastes and how much my husband might enjoy it. Actually, it is rather simple to delight him when it comes to desserts. Anyway, I went to the blog: Suncakemom and used the detailed instuctions that were coupled with great snap shots of the procedure. It just makes life much easier. I could imagine that it’s a slight inconvenience to shoot photographs in the middle of baking in the kitchen as you will often have sticky hands and so i really appreciate the commitment she placed in to build this post .
With that in mind I am inspired to present my own, personal dishes in a similar fashion. Many thanks the idea.
I had been tweaking the initial recipe to make it for the taste of my loved ones. Need to mention it was an incredible success. They enjoyed the flavor, the consistency and loved getting a treat such as this during a lively workweek. They ultimately wanted even more, a lot more. Thus next time I am not going to make the same miscalculation. I’m going to multiply the quantity to keep them happy.

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.
