CHEDDAR GARLIC BROCCOLI FRITTERS





CHEDDAR GARLIC BROCCOLI FRITTERS 

I think these are hands down the best broccoli fritters I have ever made!  This is a wonderful way to eat broccoli and serve as an interesting and attractive side dish.  Many people who are not even fond of broccoli may enjoy this way of eating this very healthy vegetable.

4 cups cooked broccoli, (1 L)
  chopped finely
1/4 cup Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, (60 mL)
  OR almond flour, OR 2 tbsp coconut flour (30 mL)
3 eggs
1 tbsp minced garlic (kind in a jar) (15 mL)
11/2 tsp salt (7 mL)
1 tsp dried parsley (5 mL)
1/2 tsp black pepper (2 mL)
2 cups grated Cheddar cheese (500 mL)
3 tbsp olive oil (45 mL)

In large bowl combine cooked, soft broccoli (I usually simply cook mine in boiling water and drain in a colander, and then press out as much moisture as possible using a clean tea towel or paper towels) and Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR almond flour, OR coconut flour.

In small bowl, beat eggs and stir in garlic, salt, parsley and black pepper.  Stir into broccoli mixture and then stir in the Cheddar cheese.

Using an ice cream scoop (1/4 cup; 60 mL), drop mixture in 4 or 5 mounds in a nonstick pan with 1 tbsp of hot oil. Leave any excess liquid behind, just using the solids for the most part. Flatten the fritters with the back of a large spoon or a spatula.  Cook fritters over medium heat until golden brown on both sides.  Serve.
