Courgette Fritters

Great way to get the children to eat courgettes


2-3 medium courgettes, roughly 3 cups grated
2 Tbsp chopped parsley
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
salt and pepper
handful grated cheese
olive oil for frying

Cooking Instructions

Place the grated courgette in a sieve and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. Combine with the remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Heat a heavy based fying-pan over a moderate heat. Add the oil and drop spoonfuls of batter into the pan about 5cm diameter. Cook until golden around the edges. Flip over and cook for a further 3-4 minutes until golden brown. Remove onto a plate (keeping warm in the oven if necessary) and repeat until all the mixture is cooked adding a little oil to the pan between batches.

Hints & Tips

Serve with yoghurt sauce - combine 1 cup natural yoghurt with 1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard, 1 teaspoon lemon zest and 1 garlic clove, chopped. Season to taste.
