Vegetable Fritters – a quick & easy way to add more veggies to your day

March 31, 2021
Vegetable Fritters

I’ve been trying to think of different ideas to increase my vegetables during the day. It is so easy to just make a quick sandwich rather than taking some extra time to make a healthier and more nutritious alternative. These Vegetable Fritters took about 10 minutes to make from beginning to end – so the ‘I don’t have time’ excuse won’t wash. You can make them and have snacks or lunches for the week or add an avocado and salsa sauce with salad for a main meal – if they last that long!

You can make them any size and as I like to call myself a ‘rustic’ cook, I’m not too bothered that they aren’t all identical in size.

Ingredients

1-1/2 cups Self Raising Flour (Wholemeal preferred)
2 eggs
185ml milk
1/2 cup coarsely grated cheddar cheese
2 cups of frozen diced mixed vegetables- thawed in microwave
Paprika to taste

Directions

  • Add Flour to large bowl
  • Whisk together milk and eggs and then add to flour and stir until combined
  • Add cheese and vegetables to mixture and stir until combined
  • Heat a shallow non-stick frypan and lightly grease with olive oil or olive oil spray.
  • When heated add tablespoonfuls of mixture to pan and cook for 1 – 2 minutes each side until golden brown
  • Transfer to plate

Serving suggestion:

Lunchbox snack
Add some avocado and salsa to three stacked fritters and then serve with a side salad

    I love vegie fritters Sue. I’ve been making a similar recipe and adding lots of silverbeet from the garden. When I had young children I added left over roast lamb. It was a favourite. I agree with you they are a great lunch.

      Hi Deb, yes Rustic Cook means I can get away with it not looking good enough for Masterchef or Cookbook photo status! LOL 🙂

    Oh, my… I think I’ll have to try those! Do you always use frozen veggies, or have you ever used fresh (maybe sautéed a bit first to soften them)? I love when I try something new and like it so much it becomes a regular menu item!

      Hi Janis! I don’t usually have frozen vegetables but they are a great alternative. Yes I would saute the fresh veggies first. I suppose that is the convenience of the snap frozen vege you just throw them in the mix. The fritters really are delicious.

    Yum! Love veggie fritters!

      They were quite delicious, actually. I’ll be making them again for sure. x
