We shopped in Best Yet Tuesday and picked up some great sale items. Big head of broccoli-77 cents, local eggs-77 cents, whole Perdue chickens-77 cents a pound.
I love broccoli but Gabe won't touch it. More for me!
I adapted the recipe from Smitten Kitchen.
Broccoli Parmesan Fritter
8 oz. Broccoli ( 1 small bunch)
1 large egg
1/2 C flour
1/3 C Parmesan cheese ( I used Kraft canned)
1 small clove garlic minced
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
pinch of red pepper flakes or black pepper.
oil for the pan
Cut up the broccoli. Place in microwave and steam the broccoli. Once it's cool, add to food processor for a few short pulses.
Add egg to a med. size bowl.
Beat the egg, add flour and Parmesan and garlic. I didn't add the salt. I added a few shakes of my favorite Tony Chachere's.
Add some EVOO to the pan and fried them up.
Place fritters on a paper towel to get rid of extra oil.
