Courgette & Sweetcorn Fritters

Courgette & Sweetcorn Fritters (Zucchini)

These Courgette & Sweetcorn Fritters really are very good, worth a try I promise and so easy!

They are simple to make and so good for using up all those left over courgettes.

I think a lot of people look for courgette recipes, when there’s a glut, as those growing them will know you end up with a lot!!

Well let me tell you these courgette fritters are delicious!

And  a sneaky way to get those veggies into the kids!

We all loved them and I ended up making more and more!

They take moments to make and everyone can be involved.

I literally had my family lined up with plates and they kept coming back for more 🙂

Courgette & Sweetcorn Fritters

Vegetarian fritters 

And they are vegetarian so perfect for Meat Free Evenings or lunches, I think we all need more of those.

No matter if you’re vegetarian or not!

Also called Zucchini (usually in the U.S)!

So what do these courgettes/ zucchini’s contain from a nutritional point of view?

Well they contain significant amounts of vitamins B6, riboflavin, folate, C, and K, and minerals, like potassium and manganese.

Also know as a summer squash they also contain antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients.

This makes zucchini, also known as courgette, a nutrient-dense food that you should include in your diet.
