Courgette, Pea, Broccoli and Feta Fritters

Auckland Nutritionist Larissa Beeby's Courgette and Pea Fritter Recipe

Fresh, light and tasty – these fritters our a delicious vegetarian meal

 

Ingredients

  • 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

Method

  1. Grate the courgettes, and leave for ~20minutes.  Then squeeze out the excess liquid and discard.
  2. Finely grated lemon zest and garlic add to courgette.  Then add peas, broccoli rice, mint and flour and mix.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
