Broccoli Parmesan Fritters

  • Author: Smitten Kitchen


These are so delicious.  Easy to prepare and what I really love is that there is very little batter.



  • ½ pound/3 cups chopped broccoli
  • 1 egg.
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour.
  • ⅓ cup finely grated parmesan cheese.
  • 1 clove garlic, minced.
  • ½ teaspoon kosher or sea salt, plus more to taste.
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste.
  • Olive or vegetable oil for frying.


  1. Chop broccoli into ½-1 inch chunks. Steam for 4-5 minutes, until tender but not fully cooked. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat egg, flour, parmesan, garlic, salt and pepper with a whisk until combined. Add broccoli.
  3. With a large fork or potato masher, mush the broccoli until soft and incorporated, but not unrecognizable. Stir everything together with a spoon.
  4. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Drop batter in ⅛ cup portions into hot oil and press down lightly with a spatula to flatten. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side. Remove and drain on paper towels.
  5. Serve with ranch or any other preferred dip, or alone with a squeeze of lemon.
