Looking for hiding vegetables from plain sight or just really into broccoli? Let’s make broccoli fritters and hide veggies no more!
As I lately have a little time, I was searching on the web yesterday. Attempting to find new, interesting thoughts, inspiring dishes that I have never used before, to surprise my family with. Looking for a while unfortunately couldn’t find too many interesting stuff. Right before I thought to give up on it, I came upon this tempting and easy treat by chance. It seemed so yummy on its photos, that called for quick action.
It had been easy to imagine how it’s made, how it tastes and how much boyfriend is going to love it. Mind you, it is quite easy to delight him in terms of desserts. Anyhow, I visited the blog: Suncakemom and then followed the precise instuctions that have been combined with wonderful shots of the task. It just makes life quite easy. I could suppose it is a bit of a hassle to shoot photos in the middle of baking in the kitchen as you most often have sticky hands therefore i really appreciate the hard work she devote to build this blogpost and recipe conveniently followed.
That being said I am inspired presenting my own, personal recipes similarly. Thanks for the concept.
I had been tweaking the initial formula create it for the taste of my loved ones. I must tell you it had been an awesome success. They loved the flavor, the thickness and loved having a treat such as this in the middle of a stressful week. They quite simply asked for lots more, more and more. Hence next time I’m not going to commit the same miscalculation. I am going to double the amount .
Original Broccoli Fritters invented by Suncakemom.
Take the broccoli to florets. The smaller the better.
Rice the broccoli florets by chopping them up in a food processor. Alternatively a fine shredder or sharp knife can also be used.
Microwave the riced broccoli until totally heats up. It takes about two minutes on the highest setting.
Get a cheesecloth or a not so precious kitchen cloth and wrap a batch of hot riced broccoli up tightly.
Squeeze out the excess water as much as possible. 1lb broccoli may yield about a cup water.
Add the cheddar, finely cut onion, eggs, salt and any optional spices and herbs then mix it well together.
Make balls out of the broccoli fritters dough. Alternatively make disc shapes. Heat a tablespoon of oil to medium and add the broccoli balls.
Spread them out by pressing them down with a spatula. Apply a thin film of oil on the spatula so it won’t stick.
Fry until golden brown then flip to the other side. It takes about 4 minutes on medium heat per side.
