Perfect for brunch topped with a fried egg. Flavorful, fun and fast.
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 10 Minutes
Total Time: 25 Minutes
- 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
Chop broccoli into ½-1 inch chunks. Steam for 4-5 minutes, until tender but not fully cooked. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, beat egg, flour, parmesan, garlic, salt and pepper with a whisk until combined. Add broccoli.
With a large fork or potato masher, mush the broccoli until soft and incorporated, but not unrecognizable. Stir everything together with a spoon.
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.
Serve with ranch or any other preferred dip, or alone.
