Fritters are perfect lunchbox or after-school treats. They are a great finger food for toddlers too. These Cauliflower & Zucchini Fritters have a crunchy outside & moist tasty centre. They are so delicious the kids won’t be able to get enough!
600 g cauliflower, cut into florets
1 clove garlic crushed
1 medium zucchini, grated
1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup tasty light cheese, grated
2 cups self-raising flour
1 pinch salt and pepper
3/4 cup water
Olive oil spray
Place the cauliflower into a food processor & blitz until they turn into small pieces. Transfer to a large bowl.
Add the crushed garlic, grated zucchini, parmesan & tasty cheese to the bowl with the cauliflower. Sift over the self-raising flour & stir to combine.
Add salt & pepper to taste, then eggs along with 1/4 cup of water to the bowl with the cauliflower mixture & stir to combine. Gradually add the extra water & stir until a thick batter.
Spray a large frying pan (or BBQ plate) with olive oil & heat over a medium heat. Scoop 1/4 cup up of batter & place into frying pan. Gently spread/flatten the fritters with a spoon until they are between 1/2cm-1cm thick.
Cook fritters for 5 minutes on each side until they are crisp & golden brown before transferring to a plate. Cover with foil while you cook the next batch.
Serve fritters warm with a dollop of tomato relish or cold in the lunchbox.
