Method

  1. Squeeze the courgettes between your hands to remove any excess moisture, or tip onto a clean tea towel and twist it to squeeze out the moisture.

  2. Beat the eggs in a bowl, add the broccoli, courgettes and most of the dill, and mix together. Add the flour, mix again and season.

  3. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan. Put a large serving spoon of the mixture in the pan, then add 2 more spoonfuls so you have 3 fritters. Leave for 3-4 mins on a medium heat until golden brown on one side and solid enough for you to flip over, then flip over and leave to go golden on the other side. Repeat to make 3 more fritters (there is no need to add any more oil to the pan after the first batch). Scatter with the remaining dill to serve.

This isn't a quick breakfast! Who's going to be grating courgettes and finely chopping broccoli when you could be in bed hitting 'snooze' and hiding your head under the pillow? It sounds like a nice weekend brunch maybe. Don't make me feel guilty for not having superhuman organisational/energy levels... or maybe I'm just not eating enough green fritters. Will Jones - 2016

You *could* chop your greens the evening before, but even of you didn't, I don't see how this takes more than 20 minutes which I figure isn't that much more than making a sandwich or a smoothie..
