Zucchini, Corn & Haloumi Fritters

Ingredients

  • 1 x zucchini
  • 1 x small-medium eggplant
  • 1/2 onion (brown or purple)
  • 70-100g of Haloumi (firm tofu for vegan alternative)
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 4-5tbsp of flour or almond meal
  • Herbs of choice (we use coriander and basil)
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 125g tin of corn kernels, drained

Method

  • In a food processer, chop the zucchini, eggplant and onion til fine (or grate manually).
  • Remove veggie mix from the processor and wring out extra water using a clean tea towel or strong paper towel. Set aside in a large bowl.
  • Place haloumi (or tofu) into the processor (no need to clean) and process until finely chopped (or grate manually). Add to bowl.
  • Stir through the egg, flour, herbs, pepper and corn to the veggie mix until well combined.
  • Next, take handfuls of mixture and form into balls. Place the balls into a well oiled fry pan on medium heat and squish into patties. Cook until golden and cooked through.
  • Serve as a breakfast, quick snack or lunch option.

Egg free adaptation: replace egg with Orgran No Egg OR a ‘flax egg’ (1Tbsp ground flaxseed + 3Tbsp hot water)
