I promised this week would not be a Mexican-inspired meal and I held true to my word and I am sharing one of my newest healthy recipes! These crispy broccoli and carrot vegetable fritters are actually a very kid-friendly recipe as long as you merely blanch the veggies instead of cooking them like I did since I forgot them on the stove. Once the broccoli smell permeated the house, my three year old declared he wasn’t eating the smelly broccoli. And, he didn’t. I tried to convince them of how good they were with cheese and carrots and onions but nothing worked. Three year olds are very stubborn when they make up their minds! These crispy broccoli and carrot fritters are great to pair with other healthy healthy recipes! My older child absolutely loved this dish and I loved feeding them to her!
Crispy Broccoli and Carrot Vegetable Fritters
Try these amazingly easy and healthy vegetable fritters for your family with these other meals this week!
- 2 cups chopped, steamed broccoli
- 2 medium carrots
- ¾ cups Flour
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoons dijon mustard
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Start by cutting the florets off the steamed broccoli and cutting them into small pieces. Cut the stalks into small, thin slices. Peel and chop the carrots roughly.
- In a food processor combine the flour, eggs, dijon mustard and garlic. Mix until well combined.
- Add in the chopped broccoli and carrots and stir through
- Heat the olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Once hot, use a ladle to spoon the batter into the pan to form small patties.. Allow the fritters to cook for 3 minutes until lightly golden and then flip and cook for 2-3 more minutes on the other side. Once cooked transfer to a paper towel and keep warm in the oven while you cook the remainder of the fritters.
