Preparation

To Make the Fritters:

  1. Clean and rinse the broccoli florets and place into a food processor. Process for approximately 30 seconds until fine. Place into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon ground flax into a little bowl and add 4 tablespoons water. Set aside and allow to swell into a gel (flax egg).
  3. Add the remaining ingredients into the mixing bowl, adding the flax egg last. Mix until everything is combined.
  4. Shape into 7 flattened balls on a plate. Place these into the freezer while you make the tzatziki.

To Make the Tzatziki:

  1. Clean, rinse, and drain the cucumber.
  2. Add into a bowl with the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  3. Once the tzatziki is made, heat up a little coconut oil in a large frying pan.
  4. Remove the chilled fritters from the freezer, and lightly fry on a medium heat for about 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Serve.
