  1. Add water to a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Add broccoli and cauliflower florets and cook 10-12 minutes or until very tender; drain.
  3. Transfer florets to a large bowl.
  4. Mash florets with a fork or potato masher (doesn't have to be a completely smooth consistancy, I leave in a few clumps of vegetables) Add in eggs, onion, pecans, flour, and salt and pepper to taste; stir to mix well.
  5. In an electric skillet, pour oil to a depth of 1/4 inch; heat to 350 degrees.
  6. Drop vegetable mixture by tablespoonfuls into the oil.

  9. Serve immediately.

This recipe was very tasty and easy to make. I really enjoyed the favor the pecans added. Next time I am going to try substituting the flour with potato or potato starch to give the batter a creamier consistency.
