Courgette fritters

Serves 2

vegetarian, dairy free


Courgettes, preferably small ones
Plain flour
1 egg
Olive oil, or you can use butter


  1. Slice the courgettes lengthways, about 5-10mm thick.
  2. Break the egg into a bowl and whisk it. Put the flour in another.
  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan: Hot enough that the courgettes will start cooking as soon as you put them in, but not so hot that the oil burns.
  4. Dip the courgettes in the egg, then the flour, then put them in the frying pan.
  5. Fry them until they are golden brown on both sides; this should only take a couple of minutes.
  6. Take them out and put them on a piece of kitchen towel. Use another piece to pat any excess oil from the top. Eat immediately.

This recipe tastes even better made with vegetables from Community Harvest Whetstone :)
