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.
