- 2 x courgette grated
- 1 x Lemon ( rind only)
- 2 x garlic cloves
- 1 cup of frozen peas
- 1 cup of broccoli ‘rice’
- handful of mint, chopped
- 2 Tbsp buckwheat flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup Goats feta
- Black pepper
- Grate the courgettes, and leave for ~20minutes. Then squeeze out the excess liquid and discard.
- Finely grated lemon zest and garlic add to courgette. Then add peas, broccoli rice, mint and flour and mix.
- Beat the egg, then add to the courgette mixture along with a good pinch of black pepper (Feta is naturally quiet salty so you shouldn’t need to add any extra salt here) . Scrunch it all up really well with your hands (yes its messy but is the easiest!) , then crumble in the feta and mix again.
- Heat a good drizzle of oil in a frying pan and fry tablespoons of the mixture for a couple of minutes each side until golden – these fritters make a lovely meal with a crunchy leafy salad, some sweet chilli sauce and lemon wedges for squeezing over.
