• 2 large courgettes
  • 50g rice flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 50g parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A good glug of olive oil


  • STEP 1
    Grate the courgettes and press them between kitchen towels to remove the excess moisture. Place in a bowl, together with the rice flour and eggs. Grate in the parmesan cheese and season the mixture with salt and pepper. Mix it all up until well combined.
  • STEP 2
    Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat.
  • STEP 3
    Place a tablespoon of mixture into the pan and flatten. Repeat with another 3 tablespoons so you’ve got 4 fritters on the go at once. Pan fry them for 2-3 mins, then turn them over and do the same on the other side, until they are golden brown.
  • STEP 4
    Transfer them to a plate whilst you repeat step 3 again until all your mixture is used up (note you may need to add a little more oil to the pan between batches).
  • STEP 5
    Serve hot with a poached egg on top, or keep them in the fridge and serve cold with dips like you would a pitta bread.
