Mussel and courgette fritters

    45 min

    These inventive fritters are easy to make and are delicious served with tomato salsa and a tossed salad for an easy summer meal. Using soy milk instead of regular milk will make this dairy free. A good way to use up that abundance of courgette we seem to get every year.
