Cook Time: 15 mins.

 

Ingredients:

95g broccoli florets, chopped into small pieces

1 rasher bacon

30mL extra virgin olive oil

25g almond meal

1 egg

10g parmesan, grated

1 garlic clove, crushed

5g Dijon mustard

1 pinch sea salt

1 pinch black pepper

1 lemon wedge, to serve

 

Method:

  • Start by steaming your broccoli (approx. 1 cup chopped). Make sure they’re nice and small pieces, and steam for 5-6 minutes or until easy to mash roughly with a fork. Leave some chunks for texture.
  • Add half the olive oil (approx. 3 tsp) to a frying pan and cook the bacon over a medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until cooked to your liking. Leave to cool, then slice thinly.
  • Combine the almond meal (1/4 cup), egg, parmesan, garlic and mustard (approx. 1 tsp) in a food processor and blitz until combined. Season to taste, then stir through the mashed broccoli and the bacon pieces.
  • Place the rest of the olive oil in the frying pan. Shape the mix into three fritters, and fry for around 2-3 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
  • Serve with a lemon wedge, plus a little extra salt and pepper.
