Zucchini Fritters

Whenever I’m looking for some food inspiration,  I always check out Teresa Cutters website, The Healthy Chef.  I wanted to make something that I could freeze into portions for lunch on the run.  So often on the weekends I am out and about so I take a little esky with me, whip up a green smoothie, chuck in a protein ball and take something out the freezer that I can eat in the car.

These fritters were really easy to make and made a huge quantity!

You will need:

500 g zucchini chopped into 2cm pieces
150g  frozen green peas thawed
1 bunch parsley
1 bunch mint
4 spring onions chopped into thirds
good pinch sea salt
generous grind of black pepper
peel from 1 lemon
3 eggs
50g  almond meal

Method:

Place  zucchini in TM bowl and chop for 4-5 seconds on speed 4.  Place in a colander, sprinkle with salt and leave for 10 minutes.

Squeeze out all the moisture from the zucchini with your hands.

Place lemon peel into TM bowl and zest on speed 8 for 4-5 seconds.  Add parsley, mint and spring onions into TM bowl and chop for 2-3 seconds on speed 8.  Add peas,  pepper, eggs, zucchini and almond meal to TM bowl and mix on reverse, speed 4 for 5 seconds or until combined.

Teresa’s recipe asks at this stage to test cook a fritter to make sure it holds together well.   If not, add some more almond meal or alternative flour if you need it.

Cook fritters in a pan over a medium heat in a little olive oil for 2 minutes each side or until cooked through.

Serve with salad or eat on their own as a snack!

Enjoy xx
