Instructions

  • Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a medium-sized saucepan.
  • Cook broccoli, carrots and zucchini for 4 minutes; drain.
  • Pat broccoli mixture dry with paper towels; roughly chop so that fritter can hold together when formed. Place broccoli mixture and flour in a large bowl; stir to coat.
  • Stir in cheese, salt, pepper, cumin, garlic salt, chili powder, and onions into the broccoli mixture. Stir in the whisked egg until the broccoli mixture is evenly combined.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat.
