Broccoli/Cauliflower Fritters

3 cups chopped broccoli/cauliflower
1 large egg
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup grated parmesan
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
pinch red pepper flakes
oil for frying

Steam broccoli/cauliflower til tender but not mushy. In bottom of large bowl, beat egg. Add flour, cheese, garlic, salt, pepper. Add (somewhat cooled) broc/cauli, and mash til somewhat combined. Heat heavy skillet over moderate heat. Add a good slick of oil - 2 to 3 Tbsp. Once the oil is hot, scoop 2 Tbsp batter into pan, flatten slightly with spatula. Repeat, leaving an inch between each. Once brown underneath, about 2 to 3 minutes, flip each fritter and cook on the other side 1 - 2 min. Transfer to paper towels to drain, then to serving plate if you’ll be eating them shortly or baking sheet in 200 degree oven if you’d like to keep them warm for a while until needed.
