Corn Fritters with Tzatziki

#loveyourleftovers. Everyone loves fritters! These healthy fritters make for a great lunch, especially with a poached egg on top.


Serves 2

Ingredients

Fritters

1 1/2 cups frozen corn

1/2 courgette, grated and liquid squeezed out

2 eggs

1 spring onion, thinly sliced (optional)

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/3 cup flour (e.g. buckwheat, wholemeal)

Pinch of chill flakes (optional)

Tzatziki

1/2 Lebanese cucumber, grated

1/4 cup yoghurt

1 Tbsp mint, chopped

Method

1. Prep fritter batter. Mix all fritter ingredients in a bowl with 1/2 tsp salt until combined.

2. Cook fritters. Heat 1/2 tsp oil in a non-stick fry-pan on medium heat. Add about 2 Tbsp mixture per fritter to pan and cook, in batches, for 1–2 minutes each side, until golden and cooked through. Use another 1/2 tsp for second batch. Season cooked fritters.

3. Prep tzatziki. Squeeze grated cucumber to rid any excess water, then add to a bowl. Fold through yoghurt and mint and season.

4. Serve fritters topped with tzatziki.

Tip, add a poached egg for extra protein.
