Courgette Fritters

These can make a quick and simple snack on their own or can be combined with some other vegetables for a fuller meal.

Ingredients:

  • 3 courgettes, about 500g, coarsely grated
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 3 tbsp self raising flour
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 tbsp olive oil

Method:

  1. Mix the courgettes, garlic and flour in a large bowl until it's all the same texture.
  2. Season the mixture well.
  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan on a medium-high heat.
  4. When the oil stars to smoke, take the courgette mixture a tablespoon at a time and drop it into the pan before pressing it down flat into a patty shape.
  5. Cook for 5 minutes on each side until nice and crispy.
  6. Remove from the frying pan and leave to cool on some kitchen paper while you cook the other fritters.
  7. Serve with cremé fraiche, mustard or a tomato salsa.

Serves about 2.
