Crispy Broccoli-Carrot Fritters with Yogurt-Dill Sauce

    These are really great. I was concerned at first, as the "batter" looked a bit dry and flour-y. But I forged ahead, and flattened them with the spatula pretty thin -- about 1/3-1/2 inch. They cooked up wonderfully, and me, my husband, and our five-year-old daughter enjoyed them. We dipped ours in the yogurt, our daughter chose ketchup. You could also easily cook them up a little bigger and thicker and use them as veggie burgers. The only minor change I made was to use 3 tablespoons of oil instead of 2 in the pan, just to make sure they crisped up very nicely. And I left out the hot pepper, because of our daughter, and instead ground in some black pepper. I'll be making this again for sure.

    My husband really liked these, although he plans to add a bit more salt next time. I don't like broccoli at all, but could still eat these. Not my favorite dish in the world, but edible broccoli? Winner!

    These are so awesome. I did some tweaking. I agree using the food processor saves alot of time and definitely easier than chopping. I doubled the cheese as that is what my family prefers. I also made small patties squeezing out any juice and putting on a tray and putting in the freezer 20-30 min so they set and don't fall apart. I coated with Italian Bread Crumbs before frying as it gave them a really nice crisp coating. We tried w/o the coating and prefer the coated ones. I will definitely be making these again.

    Yummy! I'm gluten free so I subbed a GF flour with wonderful results! I would serve these to guests. The recipe was quicker and easier than I expected. I'll be making these again!

    These were quick and easy to assemble; I steamed the vegetables (rather than boil) and pulsed them with the other ingredients in a food processor. They also cooked up quickly, but I ended up with only 7 patties. The flavor was good, although the texture on the inside was a bit slimy. I would make these again but maybe cook them longer at at lower temperature to be sure the egg is cooked. I served these with CL Celeriac Soup.

    These are really good - they are hearty enough to be eaten as an entree. I used cauliflower instead of carrots since I didn't have any carrots. So yummy, added a little more salt and topped w/ shredded cheddar cheese.

    I love these fritters. They're quick and easy for a week night, and they're delicious as leftovers. I've also made them substituting yellow onion for green, and added a little garlic salt. I use just a touch less flour than the recipe calls for. Packing them into a measuring cup and using that to press down into patties gives a nice shape and helps them hold together.

    These were excellent and a great way to use up leftover broccoli. Did not make the yogurt sauce - just served them as is.
