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.

 

To serve your Courgette & Sweetcorn fritters

    Thank you for your recipe and the proportion of ingredients, I made it slightly differently, how my Mum used to make corn fritters!
    Separate the eggs and beat the whites till stiff. Put egg yolks & milk (liquid from can of corn, made up to 150ml with milk) in with the flour and beat well! Stir in corn and grated Courgette, fold in egg whites. Cook as per your instructions…
    *** Don’t burn your fingers and mouth tasting these straight from the pan! 😁
