Broccoli Fritters

20140803-080614-29174016.jpgFritters are such a useful recipe, an easy, tasty and filling meal that can be whipped up in seconds. You may have come across my egg and dairy-free sweetcorn fritter recipe, indeed it is still the recipe or post of mine that attracts the most interest worldwide.

But since my girls eat rather a lot of sweetcorn anyway (they seem to love those sweet little yellow kernels) I thought how about a change? We also seem to consume shed loads of broccoli, and since there was already some sitting in the fridge, it’s what I went with. I didn’t add chilli as my girls only like minimal spice, but if you’re a heat fan, a good dose of finely chopped red chilli would be a wonderful addition.

The key to these little tasty green beauties is to pack them full to overflowing with broccoli – definitely more broccoli than fritter, so you get that wonderful colour and goodness.

Makes about 8-10

  • 1/2 head of broccoli, cooked to taste and fairly finely chopped (about 1 cup once chopped)
  • 80g plain flour
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 105ml water (7 tbsps)
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped (optional)

 

 

– Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl, stir in the water to make a smooth but thick paste

– Stir in the chopped broccoli and chilli (if using)

– Fry spoonfuls in hot sunflower oil, until golden on both sides.

– Serve whilst piping hot!

        Oh my God Lucy, they are little little puffy clouds of heaven! I made them seriously about 3 inches in diameter and both my kids ate a whole one with their dinner pancakes. (I love making vegetable pancakes.)

        I made the recipe double so I could have some for lunch. So glad I did!

  3. These look absolutely delicious. Do you ever serve them with a sauce? If so, what do you recommend?

      Thank you! The children like ketchup but I think sweet chilli sauce is the perfect partner 🙂
