Author: Karina - Cafe Delites


  • 1 large , fresh broccoli
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 an onion
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup shaved Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup flour (or almond flour for a lower carb option)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • Olive oil cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 400°F | 200°C. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  • Chop the broccoli into florets. Discard the hard part off of the stem, and chop the stem also. Place the broccoli and stem pieces into a food processor and pulse a few times until the broccoli is chopped. Add in the eggs, onion, garlic, flour and Parmesan. Pulse again a couple of times until well combined (about 5 seconds of pulsing). Stir the salt and pepper through the mixture.
  • Form 8-10 fritters on the prepared baking sheets, making sure they don’t touch each other. Spray with a light coating of olive oil spray.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes on each side until golden.
  • Alternatively pan fry in a nonstick pan over medium heat until golden on both sides.
  • Allow fritters to cool slightly before serving. Serve with ketchup, Greek yogurt or fat free sour cream.
