Recipe: Simon Toohey


  • 1Place the miso and milk into a bowl and mix until the miso is dissolved. Add flour and season with salt and pepper. Whisk to combine and remove any lumps, the mixture should be slightly thicker than pancake batter.
  • 2Add grated broccoli to the batter, and mix through.
  • 3For the glaze, mix everything into a bowl until the sugar is dissolved.
  • 4Add 30ml oil to a non-stick fry pan on medium heat. Spoon the batter in and let fry for 3–5 minutes or until set. Turn and brush with the glaze, continue to cook for a further 3–5 minutes or until cooked through. The fritter will bounce back when you touch it. Glaze on the other side. Continue until all of the batter is used.
  • 5Toss all of the salad ingredients together in a bowl.
  • 6Plate up a serve of salad beside your fritters, and enjoy!
