  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 15 mins
  • Yields: 4 Servings


3 cups organic broccoli florets

1 cup sliced organic cremini or baby bella mushrooms

2 large organic pastured eggs

Juice of 1/2 small lemon

1/4 cup gluten-free oat flour, or ground gluten-free oats

3 cloves garlic, minced

4 organic green onions, chopped

1 Tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tsp ground cumin

1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1/2 tsp sea salt

3 Tbsp olive or avocado oil for pan


1In a medium stock pot with a steamer basket, bring one inch of water to boil and add broccoli florets to basket.

2Cover and steam for about 5 minutes until fork tender; remove from heat and let cool.

3Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and saute mushrooms until tender, about 5 minutes.

4Transfer the broccoli and mushrooms to a large cutting board and chop finely.

5In a large bowl, combine the broccoli, mushrooms, eggs, oat flour, garlic, green onions, nutritional yeast, cumin, red pepper flakes, black pepper, and sea salt; stir until well combined.

6Heat olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.

7Once hot, add a heaping tablespoon of batter into the pan and flatten slightly with a spatula.

8Cook four fritters at a time, for about 3-4 minutes per side.

9Briefly transfer to a paper-towel lined plate to remove excess oil, then serve!
