Courgette Fritters



  • 40g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder, or handful shredded herbs, lemon zest for flavour
  • 1 medium egg, whisked
  • 1 medium courgette, coarsely grated, moisture squeezed out through a sieve, using kitchen towel or a tea towel
  • Sea salt, black pepper
  • Olive oil for frying


  1. Mix together the flour, baking and garlic powder and a pinch of sea salt and black pepper to season. Add the egg and whisk into a smooth paste. Fold in the courgette.
  2. Warm a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add around 4 tablespoons of olive oil and swirl it around the pan. Dollop in around 1 heaped tablespoon of the courgette mixture to make a fritter, then continue with another 2-3 at a time. Do not over fill the pan, it makes them difficult to flip. Watch the heat as you cook.
  3. After a few minutes the underside should be browned and will easily come away from the pan. Flip over and cook the other side until similarly browned. Drain on kitchen paper.
