Vegan Broccoli Fritters


Vegan Broccoli Fritters

Spicy smoked broccoli fritters with chickpea flour and spices. Quick and easy snack or breakfast.


  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 medium broccoli florets, (head) or about 3 1/2 cups florets
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of ground flax seeds
  • 1/2 medium onion, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • coconut oil, for shallow frying


First, place the broccoli florets, onion, cilantro and garlic in batches in a food processor and mix until crumbly (resembling grains of rice).

Then, transfer to a large bowl. Stir in the chickpea flour, flax flour, cumin, cayenne pepper and salt. Mix well and press together as if you were forming a paste.

Heat the oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Form about 1/4 cup patties, place the donuts in the pan, reduce the heat to low and cook the donuts on each side for about 4 minutes until golden brown.

These are lightly fried and not fried. What I do is cover the pan after turning them over to make sure the donuts are cooked through in the middle.

Alternatively, you can bake on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and sprayed with cooking spray in a preheated 400 degree Fahrenheit oven for 30 minutes, turning halfway through cooking. Happy Cooking Time.
