This recipe is one we’ve made for both kids and adults because it’s not only a fun way to eat your broccoli, but a tasty way! These fritters can be served with breakfast too, alongside eggs or even on their own. But, our favorite way to eat them is with dinner, as a vegetarian, gluten free main or as a tasty side dish to add into an omnivore meal. If you like onion or shallots, you could add a handful of them into these fritters for more flavor. We love drizzling tahini sauce over top of these or you could give them a try with some hummus.
Broccoli is a wonderful cruciferous veggie that contains cancer-fighting compounds called glucosinolates, that contain sulfur. During cooking and as you chew and digest broccoli, these compounds get converted into active compounds that prevent the growth of cancer cells. You may have heard of Indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane since they are studied for their role in fighting cancer; both of these are formed during this process.
