Time: 20 minutes

Makes: 8 large fritters

 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup corn kernels
2 large zucchini, grated and squeezed of excess moisture

1/2 cup halloumi, grated
1/4 cup Bunya Nut Meal
3 eggs

1 tsp Mountain Pepper Leaf

2. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp of olive oil. Add the corn kernels and cook for approximately 10 minutes, or until golden. While the corn is cooking, grate the zucchini into a clean tea towel and squeeze out as much excess liquid over the sink or into your compost as you can.

3. Add the zucchini, corn and remaining fritter ingredients into a large bowl and stir to combine.

4. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and add the olive oil or coconut oil. Place heaped spoonfuls of fritter mixture into the frying pan and flatten them into fritters with the back of a spatula. Cook until golden brown on both sides and cooked through. Continue cooking the fritters in batches and remember not to over-crowd the frying pan.

5. Remove from frying pan once cooked and place on a plate lined with paper towel. 6. Serve fritters warm, topped with our tangy Kakadu Plum & Chive Creme Fraiche.

Tips:

  • Make sure you squeeze out any excess liquid from the grated zucchini. To do this,grate the zucchini onto a clean tea towel, then gather up the edges, twist and squeeze. You will surprised just how much liquid comes out! And this helps to make sure the fritters hold together well and don’t go soggy.
  • If you’re a bacon lover, try adding some finely chopped bacon to the fritter mixture.
  • They’re delicious served warm with our Lemon Myrtle Creme Fraiche, but they’realso a great for Sunday morning brunch topped with bacon, mushrooms, sliced avocado and poached eggs, or as cold lunchbox snack, straight from the fridge.
