Easy eats: Super Green Courgette Fritters

This is one of the simplest and yet tastiest dishes I make. These are a perfect summer lunch or light dinner, and take no time at all to make. Plus they’re pretty healthy too! This recipe was featured in Harry’s Community Cookbook !

Fran’s Fritters

Serves 2 people, making 6 fritters.

Takes 5 minutes to prepare, and approx.  3 minutes per fritter to cook.

  • 2 courgettes
  • Handful of feta cheese, crumbled
  • 3 free range eggs
  • Plain flour
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Grate the courgettes into a mixing bowl.
  2. Crack in the 3 eggs.
  3. Add in your crumbled feta
  4. Add enough flour to make the batter sticky
  5. Season to taste
  6. Mix !!

    It might not look particularly appetising at this stage, but trust me!

  7. Heat up a non-stick frying pan and add a knob of coconut oil to fry the fritters in
  8. Use a table spoon to dollop a large spoonful of mixture into the pan, making roughly circle shape fritters. You can make them as small or as large as you like.
  9. Fry the fritter on each side for approx. 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown.
  10. I serve mine with plain greek yogurt, a few almonds and a leafy salad.

Enjoy!
