HOW TO MAKE BASIC BROCCOLI FRITTERS
Step 1: In a medium-sized pot, bring salted water to a boil. Then, add the broccoli florets and cook for about 5 minutes or until just fork-tender. Drain when done and place the broccoli on a cutting board. Cut the broccoli into very small pieces using a large, sharp knife.
Step 2: Place the chopped broccoli, eggs, Parmesan, flour, and garlic in a medium-sized bowl. Mix well and season with salt and pepper. Mix again until everything is combined.
Step 3: Heat a cast iron or non-stick pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the oil and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan. Into the pan, scoop out 2 to 3 tbsp mounds of the broccoli mixture. Using a spatula, slightly flatten the mounds, spacing the mounds to about 1 inch apart.
Step 4: Cook the fritters for about 2 to 3 minutes on the first side. Flip and continue to cook for another 1 to 2 minutes or until all sides are golden brown and completely cooked.
Step 5: Serve the fritters right away with sour cream or yogurt. Enjoy!
You can also bake the fritters, simply prepare the fritters and arrange them on a hot, oven-safe skillet. Bake for about 10 to 13 minutes in a preheated 425 degrees F oven.
