Just like Deb at Smitten Kitchen I love fritters and her recipe for broccoli parmesan ones is really good. Eating them on their own their nice enough, but serve with a super easy sauce with creme fraiche, parmesan and lemon zest and this is amazing. Promise!
Eat these for lunch, supper or cook them for your friends at brunch. Just make them, ok?!
Broccoli parmesan fritter, serves 4
Adapted after Smitten Kitchen’s recipe.
ca 225 g broccoli
65 g plain flour
30 g grated parmesan
1 small garlic clove
1/2 tsp salt
oil for frying
Cut the broccoli stem into pieces and divide the crown into florets. Bring to the boil in salted water and let it cook for 3-4 minutes if you like them firm, a few more minutes if a bit softer. Drain.
Beat the egg in a bowl and add the cheese, garlic, flour, salt and pepper. Mix the broccoli in a food processor or mash with a potato masher. Add to the mixture.
Fry in oil on medium heat. Serve with a cold sauce.
