  1. Prepare the Broccoli: Begin by cutting the broccoli into large florets. Steam them for 5-7 minutes, or until they are tender enough to be pierced with a fork. You can steam them using a steamer basket over boiling water or by placing them in a colander over a pot of boiling water, covered.
  2. Chop and Mix: Once the broccoli is steamed and slightly cooled, chop it into small, bite-sized pieces. In a large mixing bowl, combine the chopped broccoli with the chives (or green onions), minced garlic, eggs, flour, both the mozzarella and feta cheeses, and all the seasonings. Stir until you have a sticky batter.
  3. Cook the Fritters: Heat the olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Once hot, spoon the batter into the pan, flattening it slightly to form fritters. Cover and let them cook for 12-15 minutes on medium-low heat, or until the underside is nicely golden and crispy. Carefully flip each fritter using a plate or a spatula, and cook the other side for another 7-10 minutes until golden brown.

Additional Tips:

  • Cheese Variations: If feta isn’t your favorite, feel free to use parmesan or any other cheese that you prefer. The idea is to add a nice, salty flavor and a bit of texture.
  • Adjusting the Batter: Depending on the moisture content of your broccoli and eggs, you might find the batter a bit too loose. If that happens, don’t hesitate to stir in an extra tablespoon of flour to help it hold together better.

These broccoli and cheese fritters are a delightful way to enjoy your veggies, offering a crispy exterior and a soft, flavorful interior. Serve them hot as a side dish, a snack, or even as a light main course with your favorite dipping sauce. Enjoy crafting this tasty, nutritious treat that’s sure to be a hit!
