This very simple recipe for fritters fits in well with my theme of eating yourself young this month, with the added bonus that they taste delicious cold. So make a batch and bring them to work as a healthy lunch in a tupperware box the next day!
Makes approx 12 fritters
Prep time :10 mins
Cook time: 15 mins
250g Cottage Cheese
2 medium sized courgettes, grated
2 green shallots, finely chopped
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tbs fresh dill, chopped
100g Doves Gluten free whole grain self raising flour
1 1/2 tsp Olive Oil
Sweet chilli sauce to serve
1. Place half the Cottage Cheese in a bowl. Add courgettes, shallots, eggs, dill and flour. Stir until well combined. Season with salt and black pepper.
2. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add ½ tsp of the oil and swirl to cover base of pan. Form 4 fritters with 2 1/2 tbs of mixture each. Cook over medium heat for 2 mins on each side or until golden and cooked through. Transfer them to a warm platter, then repeat the process with remaining mixture to form a total of 12 fritters.
3. Serve the warm fritters with a dollop of extra cottage cheese on top and drizzle with sweet chilli sauce.
