Broccoli And Feta Fritters

Broccoli and feta fritters

Not only are these fritters super simple to make, they are also nutritious. The addition of feta adds a salty, creamy taste and quickly frying them adds a crispy finish. Broccoli is a rich source of vitamin K which is essential for blood clotting and vitamin C which is a powerful antioxidant that protects the body against free radical damage and also aids wound healing.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups of fresh broccoli, chopped roughly (florets work best)
  • 1 large organic or free-range egg
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • ½ cup Danish feta, crumbled
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • ½ tsp Himalayan sea salt
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • Cracked black pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Dill, to serve (optional)
  • Baby spinach leaves, to serve (optional)

Method

  1. Separate florets from stems, cutting them into small chunks.

  3. Add broccoli to food processor and puree.
  4. In a large bowl lightly beat egg. Add flour, feta, garlic, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes, whisking to combine. Add pureed broccoli, stirring to combine.
