Corn-Broccoli Fritters


Hi, my valentine hangover is finally over at last, hehe!! Well, last week was ultra busy. Anyways, I am a little obsessed with vegetables. It is hard for me to even think about cooking without them. And always find new ways to eat them but of course in a healthy way. Today I am here with this healthy and tasty fritter recipe. Broccoli with corns, what a nice combination! Broccoli's health benefits now needs no introduction. The world is enjoying this vitamin C and vitamin A enriched green vegetable in many ways. Broccoli also contains anti-oxidants, fibers and other vitamins and minerals. It helps to protect against many diseases .But thyroid patients should avoid it. Well, these fritters not only look tempting, they are delicious too!! The perfect blend of herbs and spices makes these fritters really tasty. They are vegan, gluten-free and with less-oil. So enjoy these fritters with a cup of tea or coffee and cook the natural way!! Happy Snacking!!
