Nothing quite like the unboxing of a streamside delivery. Summer vegetables get all my food moods going at once and my mind was swimming with ideas as I unboxed this weeks’! Cucumbers and lettuces for crisp salads to accompany cheesy bakes, perfectly petite fennel to be thinly sliced and lightly pickled with orange segments served with low and slow rosemary cannellini beans on a toasted hunk of sourdough, carrots to be chopped into sticks and served with any and all dips for snacking through the heat, tomatoes to top schmeared
cream cheese bagels and purple potatoes to be roasted and loaded with feta and crispy herbs.
Correct it’s hard to pick one recipe to share! But here it is, for this week I chose to hero the courgette/zucchini- because isn’t it just the best. And what better fit of recipe but a fritter. A great way of incorporating what’s in season into a bite of crispy golden deliciousness- this is a super simple recipe that shines a light on my style of cooking Max flavour Min Fuss!! Also, should be said no shame if you choose to serve these with tomato sauce! ENJOY!!
Feel free to throw some thinly sliced chard, fennel or even some red onion in there also.
Fritters love veggies so add whatever you think it can handle!

Veg it up: Serve with a Pico de gallo
Vegan? Ditch the egg, swap the half the wheat flour for chickpea flour (great binder), sub the yoghurt with your fav plant based and add just enough water to bind.
