Healthy Broccoli & Parmesan Fritters

Broccoli & Parmesan Cheese Fritter Recipe

When it comes to great-tasting nutritional foods – broccoli is one of my faves. So high in fibre, vitamins, minerals and great for detoxing the system – these fritters are the easiest way to incorporate broccoli into your diet. The trick is to cook them low and slow – patience, although difficult around delicious food, is a must! Serve as an easy dinner side or main – just add some greek yoghurt, a wedge of lemon and some extra parmesan sprinkled on top – yum!



Healthy Broccoli & Parmesan Fritters


Makes: 8 fritters


  • 1 head broccoli
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 3/4 cup almond meal
  • 1 tsp lemon rind
  • 1/3 cup parmesan, shaved
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Greek yoghurt and lemon, to serve


  1. Cut broccoli into florets and steam/boil until tender, but not mushy. Drain the broccoli and set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Add the cooked broccoli, eggs, almond meal, lemon rind, parmesan, garlic clove and salt to a food processor and pulse until the mixture comes together. Add a little more almond meal if it seems too wet.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over medium-heat.
  4. Add a heaped tablespoon of the mixture to the pan and shape into a fritter. Repeat until you have 4 fritters cooking at once.
  5. Turn down the heat – remember, low and slow! Cook the fritters on one side until golden (7-10 mins) then flip carefully and fry for a further 5 mins until cooked through.
  6. Remove from pan and keep warm. Repeat with remaining fritters.
  7. Serve with greek yoghurt and fresh lemon.
