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.
1-1/2 cups Self Raising Flour (Wholemeal preferred)
1/2 cup coarsely grated cheddar cheese
2 cups of frozen diced mixed vegetables- thawed in microwave
Paprika to taste
- 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
Add some avocado and salsa to three stacked fritters and then serve with a side salad
