Delicious sweetcorn and courgette fritters so tasty the whole family will be fighting over them. Served with a dollop of coriander and lime yogurt and guacamole. Perfect for breakfast or brunch.
I am a huge fan of making fritters, they are so quick to make, pretty to look at and definitely a crowd pleaser. I usually make a double batch so I can just freeze some for a rainy day. Always necessary when you have kids!
With only a few ingredients these fritters are a great way to get some veg inside you, without actually tasting the veg. If you know what I mean. Don’t be fooled by their small frame these beauties are filling and satisfying.
With the obvious benefits from the veg, this can be a mighty breakfast with the added guacamole giving us some healthy fats and the yogurt giving us some protein to start our day right.
The amount of things you can hide in a fritter is endless, but I thought I’d keep it simple this Sunday and opt for the good ol corn and courgette mix.
This takes 15 mins to make start to finish so get yo butt in the kitchen this morning and do your belly some good and make these nutritious and delicious fritters.
