Pea and Broccoli Fritters - perfect for a light dinner or healthy lunch. Also great cold in lunch boxes.

Pea and Broccoli Fritters


  • 200 grams frozen green peas (approx 1 cup)
  • 100 grams broccoli florets (about half a head of broccoli)
  • 2 eggs; lightly whisked
  • handful parsley; finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 35 grams (1/4 cup) quinoa flour (or whatever flour suits)
  • Coconut oil for frying
  • Greek yoghurt and lemon to serve


  • Allow peas to thaw on the bench a little. Add the broccoli to a food processor and pulse until you achieve a rice like consistency. Add the peas and pulse to break them up - just a little.
  • Add to bowl with the eggs, parsley, turmeric, lemon zest and flour. Stir to combine.
  • Heat oil over medium heat and add a couple of tablespoons of the mixture to the pan. Flatten with the back of your spoon. Allow to cook a few minutes each side until just golden.
  • Serve warm with a dollop of yoghurt and a lemon wedge


Makes 8 medium sized fritters. Make mini fritters and freeze what you don't use for another day.
If you don't have a food processor you can use a grater for the broccoli or alternative finely chop. Use a fork to break the peas a little.
