    About this recipe: Crispy pan-fried courgette and spring onion fritters are a bit like savoury pancakes. They make an easy side dish or summer starter. Serve with a dollop of soured cream and some chopped chives.

    Serves: 5 

    • 225g grated courgettes
    • 2 large eggs, slightly beaten
    • 2 tablespoons chopped spring onions
    • 60g plain flour
    • 20g grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 pinch dried oregano
    • 60ml vegetable oil, or as needed

    1. Blot grated courgette with kitchen paper to remove moisture. Stir courgette, eggs and spring onion in a large bowl. Mix flour, Parmesan cheese, baking powder, salt and oregano in a separate bowl; stir mixture into courgette until batter is just moistened.
    2. Heat vegetable oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Drop rounded spoonfuls of the batter into hot oil; pan fry until golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Drain pancakes on a kitchen paper.

    Parmesan cheese

    Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
