V good recipe. I used rice flour instead of flour. And a pinch of garlic powder. It worked well for a vegetarian breakfast.

Excellent, My batter was too wet so added some coconut flour to thicken it up, i also added some grated cheese and a little chilli flakes

Great base recipe, you will need to add more flavours. I added a softened onion and garlic, a pinch of dried chilli flakes and an extra courgette as I found the batter very wet (I did use smallish courgettes). You could add all sorts to this feta cheese (any cheese!), chopped prawns or peppers. I am always looking for healthy short cuts. If you have a good quality non stick pan you do not need oil. They can be dry fried!

The recipe itself is quite bland; needs a little something extra in it. Would probably benefit from some cheese. A great idea to get greens into mealtimes, though.

Loved these. Made just as recipe suggested and they were lovely and light (made 8). Like the idea of the taste variations. Great to have hot or cold. Perfect for picnics.

This is a great idea for dinner. Try our Mint and Pea fritters, so tasty, healthy and quick to make. Enjoy...

This was really yummy and quick and easy to make. They came out light and fluffy and were really filling. I added 1 small onion softened, 1/2 tsp cumin powder , 1/2 tsp garam massala and 1/2 clove of crushed garlic for some extra flavour!

Delicious, I softened some onions and added garlic and some cumin, coriander and garam masala and added this to the mixture. Served with a cucumber riata and wraps. Lovely lunch

Lovely - added some chopped mint and parsley and served with an olive and sun dried tomato cheese grated. I will make again and I am going to try with some Indian spices to flavour and serve with hummus.

Rated as 4 because the recipe itself is bland. Great base to invent something new from though. Love the idea of adding feta. I personally would also make 8 small fritters rather than 4 larger ones as they can be a bit stodgy in the middle.

Hi, thanks for getting in touch. We haven't tested this recipe using egg alternatives so cannot guarantee perfect results but you could try using 1 tablespoon of vegan mayonnaise in place of each egg. Alternatively for each egg you could try 1 tablespoon of linseeds which have been soaked in 3 tablespoons of water for 5-10 mins then blended in a small food processor until frothy. Let us know how you get on.

For extra flavour just add 1 small onion diced and softened 1/2 garlic clove crushed 1/2 tsp cumin powder 1/2 tsp garam masala

Tried these today using spelt flour and rice milk. If you do the same, consider adding a little extra flour to avoid a thin batter. Also, since spelt flour is not so glutenous, make smaller fritters, using a dessertspoon as a guide. As the fritter begins to form in the pan, do flatten them out if they seem a bit thick or they will not cook on the inside. A medium heat seems about right, similar for cooking pancakes. These are a nice way of using up courgettes when you grow your own. I wonder if some minced garlic or grated onion in the mix could give it a bit more 'bite'.
