Courgette & Carrot Fritters

Serves2

This is a *perfect* example of using up what's left in the fridge. Tasty, cheap, winner!


About this recipe

Well this is a funny 'how it came to be' recipe. My seven moth-old boy needed tea, I was wondering what to make and saw I had a courgette that needed using up. Decided to combine it with a carrot, goats cheese and an egg and make something between a fritter and a frittata!

I made tiny little ones he could hold and he absolutely loved them, win! What I wasn't expecting was for my (ninja) cat, Tom, to pounce on the bits that made their way to the floor, he's never shown any interest in 'human' food before and he wolfed it down before I could even react! I know he shouldn't be eating it but he was too quick haha!

To ensure I wasn't missing out I decided to try them myself (I know, bad to snack on your baby's food!!) and they were really good, so I decided to 'adultize' (yes it's a word, in my book anyway!) them and add some chilli for a bit more of a 'kick. WINNER!

These go really nicely as a light lunch with some salad or as a breakfast option. Although I prefer them warm, they do also work really well as a lunchbox addition.

Ingredients

1 large courgette, grated
2 small carrot, grated
1/3 cup almond flour
1 medium egg, beaten
1/4 tsp chilli flakes
30g hard goats cheese, grated 
Small bunch mint or parsley, chopped fine
Salt and pepper

Method

1. Grate courgette and carrot then squeeze out as much excess liquid as you can (with your hands or through a clean tea towel).
2. Add to a bowl with the almond flour, beaten egg, chilli flakes, herbs and goats cheese and mix well. Add seasoning to taste. Note: The mixture should be moist but not liquid - if it feels too liquid add a little more almond flour.
3. Form 3-4 large patties (keep them fairly flat and the same size to ensure quick and even cooking).
4. Heat a little coconut oil in a frying pan over a fairly gentle heat and fry on each side for 3-4 mins in each side, being careful not to burn them
5. Drain on some kitchen roll and serve with a side salad.

Tips

To make it 100% Paleo (or if you're intolerant to Goats cheese), drop the goats cheese and switch to the zest of half a lemon, to taste.

If you're making them for your baby, drop the chill flakes and go easy on the seasoning. Form 12-14 small patties from the mixture and cook as above.

Use a strong hard goat's cheese if you can find it, it will add a lovely depth of flavour.
