Corn, Zucchini and Spinach Fritters
Lately we've been ordering our fruit and veg online. Each Friday I'm greeted by a lovely man who delivers a large box of the freshest most seasonal organic delights. I'm loving the somewhat Pandora's Box-ishness of it all and am relishing coming up with new ways to incorporate fruit and vegetables into our daily meals.
Some leftover spinach, zucchini, corn and a glut of heavenly avocados produced this affair. And it was trés scrummy!
Corn, Zucchini and Spinach Fritters with Guacamole
2 cobs corn, kernels cut off
1 large zucchini, grated
a good handful of spinach, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 handful of cheese, I used cheddar
2 eggs lightly beaten
1/3 cup milk (may need to add a whisker more)
1 cup self raising flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Mix together corn, zucchini, spinach, garlic, eggs and milk.
Add sifted flour. cumin, salt and pepper.
Shallow fry large spoonfuls in oil until golden.
Serve with guacamole (I just mashed 2 avocados, added a chopped tomato, a decent squeeze of lemon juice and sea salt), sour cream and sweet chilli sauce.
Stuff greedily into your salivating gob!
