Corn & Courgette Fritters – VEGAN OPTION

I love this recipe and I love the fact that it is so versetile. One day I had it for brunch, the next for my lunch and the next with dinner. These fritters really can be eaten at any time of the day and are also a great snack.

Here I served them on a bed of lambs lettuce & topped with cottage cheese, smashed avocado, spring onions, chilli flakes & pomegranate

Ingredients:

  • 1 Courgette , grated & excess liquid squeezed out
  • 100g tinned sweetcorn

  • 1/2 tsp paprika

Method:

  1. In a bowl, mix the courgette, sweetcorn, spring onions, parsley, chilli, paprika & salt & mix to combine
  2. Sprinkle the flour over & mix again
  3. Add the flax seed (or egg) mix bit by bit and stir very well until a thick batter forms
  4. Add a little extra water, or flour if needed
  5. Gently stir through the feta if using
  6. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, then dollop in big tablespoon fulls of the batter
  7. Once a bit of a crust has formed, squish with a spatula & cook a bit longer
