Broccoli and Cheese… oh yes please.. 😀
Promise… I really wasn’t trying to come up with a nifty rhyme or anything…
But these are just so good and there is nothing better than that combination of flavors.
I could easily eat it on the daily.
And maybe I do… 🤔 but hey it’s no secret that I might be slightly smitten by a little cheese.
Okay… maybe a lot.
Anywho, these fritters have broccoli with the cheese so that makes it perfectly acceptable.
Since broccoli is loaded with so many great nutrients….
Such as manganese, iron, potassium, vitamin C & K, and folate.
And it’s higher in protein than most vegetables that are commonly consumed.
Plus broccoli is abundant in a plant compound known as sulforaphane which may improve risk factors for disease.
So all the more reason to add more broccoli to your diet.
Ingredients needed to make these Broccoli Fritters:
- Broccoli- can use fresh or frozen
- Almond Flour
Can I make any substitutions?
These were made with a sharp cheddar cheese but you could easily substitute with your favorite cheese.
I’ve also made them with a combination of two cheeses… one being gouda and they were DELISH.
What to serve with these fritters?
- Potato wedges
- Top them on a salad- just break into crouton size pieces
- Dipping sauce- I love a combination of mayo and sriracha sauce
- And you could also serve with some raw veggies on the side
Actually my favorite way to eat them is plain, cold… straight out of the fridge. They’re the perfect grab and go snack.
And a great way to get in an extra serving of veggies.
