  • fresh or frozen chopped broccoli florets
    3 cup
  • diced onion
    1/2 cup
  • eggs
  • all-purpose flour
    2 tbsp
  • olive oil
    2 tbsp


  1. Boil the diced broccoli in a small amount of water for 5 minutes, then drain thoroughly.

  2. Break eggs into a medium bowl and beat. Add the flour and mix well. Add the broccoli and onion and stir into the flour/egg mixture until well mixed.

  3. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Drop the mixture by spoonfuls into the hot oil, making 4 equal portions. Flatten with a spatula, and cook until golden brown on both sides (about 3-4 minutes per side).

  4. Remove the latkes from the pan and drain on a paper towel to soak up extra oil. Serve hot.
