Fritters packed full of different coloured veggies.
- 1 Medium Zucchini (Courgette), grated Approx 1 cup / 130g
- 1 Small Carrot, grated Approx 1/2 cup / 60g
- 1/2 Red Capsicum (Bell Pepper), finely diced Approx 1/2 cup / 75g
- 75g (½ cup) Corn Kernels
- 30g (¼ cup) Parmesan, grated Can be omitted for dairy free version
- 1 tbsp Parsley, finely chopped
- 2 Eggs
- 60g (½ cup) Chickpea Flour Can substitute with Plain (all-purpose) flour
- 1 tbsp Oil, for frying
Place the grated carrots and zucchini on a clean cloth and squeeze as much water out of them. Place in a mixing bowl.
Add the peppers, corn, parsley and parmesan and mix until combined.
Add the egg and stir until mixed. Finally add the flour and mix until combined.
In a large frying pan, heat 1/2 tbsp of the oil on medium low heat. Fill up an ice cream scoop with the mixture and drop into the pan. Flatten slightly with a fork / spatula. Fry for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
Egg Free: I have tested the recipe using flax eggs. They are more fragile to handle but held together to form fritters.
Parmesan: Fresh parmesan should be used, not the ambient product you find in the pasta isle. :) Can be omitted to make dairy free.
Veggie to Flour Ratio: The amount of flour you need may be depended on how much liquid remains in your veggies, size of eggs and also personal preference. You could start with 1/4 cup (35g) and add more if needed/wanted.
