Vegan Cheesy Chickpea Broccoli Fritters

These easy chickpea broccoli fritters are pan fried to crispy perfection. Quarantine has really been forcing me to be extra creative, and honestly I’m kind of thankful because that’s how I came up with these fritters.

Been making these on repeat weekly, so you’re gonna want to give them a try!
