Every time you whip up a batch of Vegetable Fritters, experiment with different vegetable combinations … a delicious and healthy breakfast everyone will enjoy xx


Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 600g Combination of grated or diced vegetables (see notes)
  • 1/2 Cup Basil Leaves, chopped
  • 1 Cup Cheddar Cheese
  • 3/4 Cup Self-Raising Flour
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 2 Avocados, diced
  • 1 Large Tomato, diced
  • Juice of 1 Lime

Method

  1. Place vegetables, basil and cheese in a large bowl.
  2. Sift flour over vegetables and mix to combine.
  3. Pour milk into a jug, add eggs and whisk together with a fork. Add to vegetables and stir well.
  4. Heat a large non-stick frypan over medium heat and spray with oil. Drop heaped tablespoons of mixture around the pan and spread each to about 8cm diameter. Cook for 2 minutes or until firm and golden. Flip and brown on reverse side for 2 minutes.
  5. To make salsa, combine avocado, tomato and lime in a bowl.

Notes... *Vegetable options include: zucchini (squeeze out excess liquid), corn, capsicum, sweet potato, carrot, pumpkin, potato, peas, or leek. *If you aren’t a fan of basil, you could use coriander, chives, parsley or thyme, or you could also just leave it out. *My 8 month old loves this for breakfast, I serve my salsa chunky but I mash hers onto her fritter before serving it.

  • These are delicious. Served with a blob of plain Greek yoghurt and some smashed avo and plates were locked clean

  • Coriander would also be amazing in this dish instead of basil.

  • I wouldn’t include tomato in a baby or young toddler’s food as it is quite acidic. Lime Juice is too. I might use curly leaved parsley instead of basil or just leave the basil out.

  • I love salsa so I have been looking for a simple recipe. Thanks. I also love the idea of adding whatever leftover veggies I have into the fritters.

  • Great idea! I can never think of different things to sneak veg into my 1 year old. I usually resort back to zuchinni slice. Will give this ago. Thankyou!

  • They are scrumptious looking! The recipe isn’t too hard to follow either.

  • Now I know what I have been doing wrong, I was taught to spray the pan before placing on the heat. Maybe that’s why mine “smokes” so much
