Broccoli Fritters

1. Steam the broccoli: set up a steamer basket or just bring a small amount of water to a boil in a pot, add the broccoli and steam for about 3 minutes, or until the broccoli is just barely forked tender. Remove from heat and let cool.

2. In an immersion blender or using a whisk, vigorously whisk the plant milk and ground flax until it’s frothy–about 30 seconds with the blender or longer by hand.

3. Pour the milk-flax mixture into a large mixing bowl and add the flour, nutritional yeast, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, black pepper and whisk until smooth. Fold in the steamed broccoli and carrots.

4. Heat a thin layer of oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium-low to medium heat and when hot dollop heaping tablespoons of the fritter batter into the pan.

5. Fry for 3-4 minutes on each side. Turn down the heat if needed so they don’t burn. Enjoy hot with the smokey red pepper buffalo cheddar dip.

Smokey Red Pepper Buffalo Cheddar Dip:

1. In a blender combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. You may have to stop a few times, to scrape off the sides if needed, it may take a few minutes until its completely smooth.

2. It can be enjoyed hot or cold.

NOTES:
It’s really, really important that you use a non-stick frying pan, otherwise, the fritters will stick, and will collapse when you try to turn them! Also, handle them gently, they might be quite fragile.
