An easy recipe for broccoli fritters containing just four ingredients. The simple tastes of broccoli and cheddar cheese are just perfect in this recipe, but you can also add other flavor boosts if you like. A delicious, healthy and kid friendly snack.
Broccoli is one of our favorite vegetables, and it is one which I generally feel no need to dress up. One thing I am finding with this blog is that my favorite foods don’t necessarily feature much because they don’t require the same creative cooking as the foods I’m lukewarm on. They are less of a project. I can quite happily eat broccoli sauteed in olive oil and garlic, tossed with pasta, just like that.
(Bizarrely, Mr. can eat any vegetable like that. Any of them. What’s up with that?!?)
So this week I was unpacking our vegetable box delivery and came across two heads of broccoli, so I decided I could do some experimenting, and try making fritters with a little bit of cheddar cheese, because broccoli and cheddar are just so perfect together. It’s worth using a strong vintage cheddar here for maximum flavor.
It’s not too experimental though- only four ingredients stand between you and these fritters and the dominant flavour is the broccoli. We appreciated the simplicity, but they can also be dressed up with the addition of a more exotic cheese, or perhaps some chili or olives.
