Courgette Fritters

These Courgette Fritters are so quick and easy to whip up and make a delicious side dish to accompany any number of dishes!  They’re also pretty good as a brunch option with poached egg and bacon!

They’re pillowy soft and have a nice crisp to the outside.  I absolutely adore them!

I love that such relatively simple ingredients can come together to make something so tasty!

I also love how quickly I can whip these up.  Especially if I already have courgettes grated from making say, a Spiced Chocolate Courgette Cake!

Courgette Fritters

Makes 6-10 Fritters (Depending on the size of your courgette, its moisture content and the size of your fritters!)

1 large ish courgette, grated (Use the food processor attachment if you have one!)
1 tsp salt
1 large egg
fresh ground black pepper
1/2 cup plain flour

  • Place your grated courgette in a sieve over a bowl or sink and springle with salt.  Leave it for 5-20 minutes.
  • Gently press out any liquid.
  • Combine the courgette, egg and pepper in a mixing bowl, give it a good stir!
  • Add the flour and mix until well combined.
  • Heat a few tbsp oil in a heavy frying pan (cast iron is great).
  • Add a few spoonfuls of your mixture, well spaced, and press down slightly to level.
  • Cook for a few minutes until crisp and golden brown then flip over and cook for another few minutes until golden brown on the bottom and feeling solid when pressed in the centre.
  • Place on paper towel on a plate and leave in a warm oven while you repeat with the remaining mixture.
  • Enjoy as a side to a main meal, serve for an unusual brunch, take on a picnic, whatever takes your fancy!
