This is what we need…

Broccoli, grated Parmesan, an egg, flour, oil, ground black pepper, garlic powder, salt and some milk.

Simple indeed.

1. First, prepare your broccoli: Separate the florets from the biggest stem (you should end up with about 3 cups – 200 grams of broccoli). Then steam your broccoli until tender but not mushy. To do so, bring an inch or so of water to a boil in a small saucepan, then add the broccoli, place a lid on it and simmer it for 5 to 6 minutes. Drain the broccoli, then set it aside.

2. In a large bowl, lightly beat your egg.

5. Add the steamed broccoli florets…

… and using a fork or a potato masher, mash the broccoli just a bit. You can leave the broccoli chunks larger or smaller, whatever you prefer.

6. Heat a large skillet over moderate heat. Once hot, add about 2-3 tablespoons oil. Once the oil is hot, scoop a 1/4 cup-size mound (60 ml) of the batter and drop it into the pan, then flatten it slightly with your spoon or spatula.

7. Repeat with additional batter, leaving a couple inches between each. Once brown underneath, about 2 to 3 minutes, flip each fritter and cook on the other side until equally golden, about another 1 to 2 minutes.

8. Transfer briefly to paper towels to drain.

  3. Szuper recept, köszönöm! Brokkoli helyett én medvehagymaleveles pestoval ízesített karfiol rózsákkal készítettem /pesto = olaj-só-medvehagyma levél összedarálva/. Próbáljátok ki! Márti
