Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Place broccoli florets, onion, cilantro and garlic in batches in a food processor and process until crumbly (looks like rice grains).
  2. Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in chickpea flour, flaxseed meal, cumin, cayenne pepper and salt. Mix well and squeeze together like you are forming a dough.
  3. Heat oil on medium in a large skillet. Form into patties about 1/4 cup, place fritters in the skillet, reduce heat to low and cook fritters on each side for about 4 minutes until golden brown.
  4. These are lightly fried and not deep fried. What I do is cover the skillet after I turn them to make sure the fritters are well cooked in the middle.
  5. Alternatively, you can bake on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprayed with cooking spray in a preheated oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes, turning halfway. Serve with my vegan ranch dressing.

      Janice I only made it with cilantro but you should be able to substitute it with parsley.

    Hi
    Would oat flour work instead of chickpea flour?
    Thank you

    Thanks for this amazing recipe. Absolutely love these. I was worried they wouldn’t stay together when frying because of their lack of wet ingredients but they came out perfect. It’s not vegan, but I served them with a quick tzatziki of Greek yogurt, chopped dill, garlic and a few squeezes of fresh lemon.

    Hi!!
    I LOVE this recipe! But we recently found out my daughter is allergic to chickpeas and flax. Would brown rice flour work to replace the chickpea flour? I’m not sure what would work to replace the flax, maybe breadcrumbs? Thanks in advance!

      Hello my suggestion would be to substitute with a store-bought gluten-free flour because most of them are finer in texture than brown rice flour and similar to chickpea flour. if you decide to go with store-bought gluten-free flour, make sure to double check ingredients that it doesn’t contain chickpea flour. The purpose of the flaxseed in the recipe is to replace eggs and I’m not sure if breadcrumbs would be a good substitute without actually trying. As you see the recipe is very simple but holds together perfectly as written so if breadcrumbs works for you, please let us know.
