#foodpost - Courgette fritters

When the clock strikes midday on a lazy Sunday afternoon my eyes have a bad habit of going straight to the kitchen cupboards. If it's not to feast on the delights inside, then it's to whip up something of my own.

Sadly, I don't have the nifty fingers and patience to make an oh so pretty cake so I tend to go for the savoury options in which I can overuse the word 'rustic'... tasty but not so easy on the eyes.

So here you have it... my 'rustic' courgette fritters teamed with a rocket salad, cherry tomatoes and fresh boquerones (anchovies in vinegar). The recipe (below) is simple and takes less than 10 minutes from start to finish..

50ml plain flour
2 eggs
50ml milk
1 courgette
1/4 white onion 
1 tbsp oil to cook

To start on your fritters grab a mixing bowl and add your flour. Once in, make a small well in the centre for your eggs.
Add the eggs and mix together well.
Then, add the milk and salt and pepper for seasoning.
Once, everything's mixed together add your vegetables. I used courgette and onions but adding sweetcorn, peppers or spinach would be good too.

When your mixture's ready heat the oil in the pan and add spoonfuls of the mixture into the pan for 3 minutes on each side. When your fritters are golden... voila!

This recipe makes about 10 fritters so feel free to half the measurements.

Eat with a salad at lunch or with some crusty bread for supper.
