Staying on the green train recently because veggies just make me feel so great. There is nothing I love better than broccoli and cheese. It takes me right back to my childhood,  as this was the only way mom could get us kids to eat our greens. I think she was right! I wanted to share these easy and delicious Broccoli Fritters.  They are packed with yummy, cheesy, garlic flavour and are gluten free! They are perfect for breakfast or even a great snack.
