  • 3 cup broccoli, florets
  • 1 large egg
  • 5 tablespoon Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup flour, all-purpose
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper/chili flakes
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil


  • Cut and steam broccoli until it is soft but not mushy.
  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk egg and then add cheese, flour, minced garlic, salt, and red pepper flakes (optional).
  • Add broccoli to mixture and mash with a hand masher, trying to leave some chunky pieces. Then, fold together until well mixed.
  • Heat oil in a medium skillet. Add broccoli mixture 2 tablespoons at at time, forming patties. Heat until browned, then flip.
  • Once browned on both sides, transfer to a plate covered with paper towels (allowing excess oil to be absorbed). Allow to cool a bit, then enjoy!
