Cooking broccoli fritters:

Step 1: prepare the broccoli for cooking.

If you use frozen broccoli, you must first thaw it at room temperature. We rinse our cabbage under running water. Transfer to a deep bowl. We leave broccoli aside - let the water drain. In no case do not cook our whole cabbage. On a cutting board with a knife, we disassemble it into inflorescences. Important, to make small pieces. Then, due to its size, broccoli will cook faster and will not lose their beneficial substances during cooking.

Step 2: cook broccoli.

We take a deep pan, collect water into it, add salt to it and put it on the stove. After the water boils, put the broccoli in the pan. Cook over medium heat for no more than 5-6 minutes. Do not overdo it over time, as long cooking can destroy most of the vitamins, and worsen the taste. Surprisingly, it is a fact: this type of cabbage contains a huge amount of vitamins A, C, E, B1, PP. Moreover - it contains minerals useful for the body, such as potassium, calcium, iron, sodium and much more. And this is very useful for the child, as these components not only strengthen the bones, but also support the immune system as a whole!

Step 3: chop the broccoli.

We drain the water from the pan and put the broccoli in a colander. Let the water drain. We put cabbage in a deep bowl. Grind it with a blender or mashed potato pusher. In appearance the consistency should look like mashed potatoes with lumps. Do not grind broccoli to a very liquid state. Do not forget - we are preparing first of all pancakes, not soup.

Step 4: The first steps in preparing a mixture for broccoli fritters.

Broccoli is done. Only a few steps are left to the final result. Add milk. It should be cold and not boiled. Fresh milk will make our mixture much softer and with more calories.

Step 5: Finish making the mix for broccoli fritters.

Our tasty and healthy broccoli pancake dough is almost done. Only a few touches left. Add two chicken eggs to our mixture. From this fritters will be more magnificent. If you are a fan of adding different seasonings to dishes - do not be shy, the main thing is that you like this taste later! We add salt and pepper to your taste. Pour flour to our mixture for viscosity. The main thing is not to overdo it, but also a smaller amount of flour can completely change the consistency of fritters. So it's best to stick with the recipe. Flour will help our mixture become thicker, and during frying fritters will come out beautifully shaped.

Step 6: improve the taste of broccoli fritters.

We take the garlic, pass it through the garlic and add it to our mixture. Garlic is a very important element. As you know, boiled cabbage, in particular broccoli, has a specific smell. But our "green miracle" should attract with its smell, and not repel in any way. Garlic will help us a lot. And another - a very interesting fact: more than 400 nutrients in garlic. So our dish becomes 400 times healthier.

Step 7: prepare the mixture for broccoli fritters for frying.

The resulting mixture of broccoli, eggs, flour and spices, we whip again with a blender or use a smoothie for mashed potatoes no more than 20 - 30 seconds. Mix everything until smooth with a spoon. Put the finished mixture in the refrigerator for 10 -20 minutes.

Step 8: fry broccoli fritters.

We put the pan on the stove and pour vegetable oil into it. Fire should be average. We take our mixture from the refrigerator. And with the help of a spoon in a heated frying pan we form round pancakes. Frying them on one side, we turn them on the other side with a fork. Having browned the second side, put the “green miracle” on a plate with a fork. The color of the crust on the pancakes should be golden, they should not be too fried.

Step 9: serve broccoli fritters.

Serve "green miracle" with sour cream, decorating with herbs. As a side dish, you can use boiled vegetables or porridge of any kind. Broccoli fritters can also serve as an excellent side dish for any kind of meat or sausages. You can prepare your favorite sauce for them - the taste of this will only become more expressive. I practiced different options. But, frankly, it is unlikely that this "yummy" will be with you before preparing the side dish. My family really liked the recipe for broccoli fritters and they are happy to use it dry. Healthy Food - A Healthy Family! Good appetite!

Recipe Tips:

- - In order for the pancakes to be the same in size, put the vegetable mixture on a hot pan with the calculation: one tablespoon per one thing.

- - Fritters can be made even more magnificent if you add a package of baking powder or soda on the tip of the knife. But this is optional.

- - If you don’t have a garlic, you can use a fine grater instead.

- - At will, different vegetables can be added to the vegetable mixture. This will increase calorie content and increase the percentage of vitamins.
