I wanted to make broccoli fritters that are super tasty and cheezy while being vegan and gluten-free. These Cheezy Broccoli Fritters are tender and moist on the inside, crispy on the outside and will melt in your mouth. The rustic and hearty broccoli and the cheezy nutritional yeast flavors just make a perfect combo!
Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:
Chickpea flour is a great gluten-free, high protein and high fiber alternative to white flour. These ingredients make it a filling swap that doubles for heart health since chickpeas have been shown to help balance unhealthy cholesterol levels and reduce hypertension.

Vegan Cheezy Broccoli Fritters
1. Prepare your egg replacer and set aside.
2. Steam the broccoli for a few minutes until fork-tender. Chop florets into small pieces with a knife.
3. In a large bowl, combine the broccoli pieces with all the other ingredients and mix well until the mixture feels like it will hold together.
4. Make 6 patties.
5. Heat about an inch of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Place fritters in the skillet (don’t crowd the pan; only cook about 3 fritters at a time), reduce heat to low and cook fritters on each side for about 2/3 minutes until golden brown. These are lightly fried and not deep fried.
6. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Serve hot!
