These easy to make vegan broccoli fritters are soft on the inside, crispy on the outside and so tasty! They are great way to eat your veggies in a fun and creative way that the whole family will enjoy! Vegan, gluten-free & dairy-free. 



1 medium broccoli head (300 grams) chopped (stem removed)

1/4 red onion diced

1/3 cup packed of fresh coriander or fresh parsley

1/2 cup pepitas

1 small garlic clove finely diced

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon of ground coriander

1/2 cup tapioca flour

2 tablespoons ground flaxseeds


  1. In a small bowl put the ground flax seeds with 3 tablespoons of water, let it rest for 10 minutes, to make the flax egg. Prepare the rest of the ingredients in the meantime.
  2. Add all the ingredients to a food processor and blend until they're all finely chopped. Transfer the broccoli mixture to a large bowl and let it sit for 5 minutes. I use this resting time to do some washing and clear the bench!
  3. Lightly wet your hands and make the fritters approximately 1.5cm thick and 9cm diameter. 
  4. Set a non-stick pan on medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive or coconut oil. Add the fritters and pan fry around 4 minutes on each side, until they are golden brown, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.  Flip them carefully with a flat spatula so they don't break. Enjoy!


  • Wetting your hands will avoid the mix sticking to your hands.
  • These fritters pair great with this easy mango salsa
