You could bake the fritters in the oven instead. To do that, lightly spray a non-stick muffin tin with oil and divide the veggie mixture between the muffin cups. Bake for about 15 minutes at 180C

Instead of using fresh garlic, you could use 1tsp of garlic granules or a tsp of garlic puree

Remember, always choose tinned fruit in juice rather than syrup to keep the sugar content down

Veggie Fritters

 INGREDIENTS 

•    2 courgettes
•    2 medium carrots
•    1 tin of sweetcorn
•    4 eggs
•    ½ cup of flour
•    2 garlic cloves chopped
•    1 teaspoon of dried parsley 
•    1 teaspoon of salt 
•    1 teaspoon of pepper 
•    Oil/low calorie cooking spray

 METHOD 

1.    Grate the courgette. Squeeze handfuls of the grated courgette tightly to remove extra water. Place it into a large mixing bowl
2.    Grate the carrot and add to the courgette
3.    Add the flour, chopped garlic, sweetcorn, eggs, parsley into the bowl with the carrot and courgette
4.    Season with salt and pepper
5.    Mix all the ingredients together
6.    Spray a non-stick pan with low-calorie cooking spray or 2 tablespoons of oil
7.    Once the oil or cooking spray is hot, add one heaped tablespoon of the fritter mixture and flatten out the top to make the fritter flatter for cooking
8.    Cook for 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown. If they brown too quickly, reduce the heat. 

Serve with spinach and some plain yoghurt.

Instead of flavouring with just salt, pepper and dried parsley, get creative with other herbs & spices.

Try swapping the parsley for a teaspoon of dried cumin and coriander
