1 large
egg
½ c
all purpose flour
1.3 c
grated parmesan cheese
1 clove
garlic, minced
½ tsp
salt (plus more to taste)
1 pinch
red pepper flakes (or a pinch of black pepper)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Steam the broccoli in a small amount of boiling water for 5 or 6 minutes. Drain well; set aside.
2
In a large bowl, beat the egg and add flour, cheese, garlic, salt and pepper. Add the somewhat cooled broccoli and mash the mixture with a potato masher until you have 1/4- to 1/2-inch chunks.

Form the mixture into mounds and place in hot oil in a large skillet. Slightly mash the mounds by pressing on them with a spatula. Brown over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
