Courgette Fritters

I originally found the recipe for these on Pintrest however, as usual I made some adaptations (in the case of these this was caused by my lack of foresight when food shopping).

These delicious 'patties' are a great way of getting your carbohydrates and vegetables for one meal and the principle is easy to adapt... I shall be trying it with butternut squash soon.

Ingredients (makes 6): 
1 Courgette
1/2 Baking Potato
1 egg
20g Plain Flour
40g Spinach
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Mint
2 tbsp unsalted butter (softened)

Coarsely grate the potato and courgette into a bowl and chop up the fresh spinach as finely as possible.

Break the egg over the top of the mixture and fold in the flour and butter.  Then add paprika and mint.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Make six, thin fritters with the mixture and after preheating 1 tbsp of sunflower oil in a frying pan place three of the patties in.  Cook until golden brown on each side.  Repeat to cook the second three patties.
