How to Make Broccoli Fritters

Typically, vegetable fritters are made with mashed, grated, or chopped vegetables mixed into a batter of egg, cheese, flour, and herbs. Portions are then fried in oil like pancakes or formed into small hand rolled balls like tater tots. Some fritter recipes may also be baked.

In this recipe, the small amount of almond four replaces wheat flour or corn starch which you may find in more traditional recipes. Eggs and cheese work to bind the savory pancakes together and keep the shape as they cook.

Gluten-free Low-Carb Broccoli Fritters are ready in less than 30 minutes!

Serve on the side of baked fish, a steak, or other delicious keto dinner.

A quick mix of Greek yogurt or sour cream with a squeeze of lemon makes a smooth dipping sauce. You may like to use other sugar-free dips as well.

  • Steam broccoli until soft, then finely chop by hand or in a food processor.
    8 ounces broccoli
  • Combine the broccoli with flour and seasonings until well coated. Add eggs and stir. Mix in cheese.
    2 tablespoons almond flour, 1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1 teaspoon Mexican seasoning, 2 whole eggs, 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat, add the cooking fat and tip the pan to coat the surface thoroughly. Roughly divide the batter into 8 fritters, space evenly on the pan (I use a heaping 1/4 cup measuring cup to pour in the batter and cook 4 at a time).
    1 tablespoon beef tallow
  • Cook the first side of the fritter until the bottom turns golden brown and crusts over, about 2 minutes.
  • Flip and cook the second side until firm and golden. Repeat until all fritters are cooked.
