Gorgeously Green Fritters with Radish Microgreens

This gorgeously green fritter recipe is sneakily stuffed with greens, so that picky fingers and fussy faces can’t find them!
Fritters are so versatile; any leftovers can be given a second life in fritter-form.  I love these green fritters because they are smushed full with vitamins, minerals and micro-nutrients, thanks to the addition of our radish microgreens.
Great as a snack, lunchbox treat or side to your dinner, they are quick to make, deliciously wholesome and scandalously more-ish!
You can add or change veggies as you have left-over in the fridge, but the combination of spinach and baby marrow is a winner for me. The radish microgreens are crunchy and flavourful, and looks incredibly pretty once fried into these veggie nuggets of gold!

You’ll need:

  • 2 cups spinach, finely shredded
  • 4 baby marrows, grated
  • 1 cup New Life Microgreens Radish Mix
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • olive oil for frying
  • lemon wedges, for serving

Instructions

  • Mix all the veggies together in a bowl. Add egg and mix through. Add flour until you have a thick-ish paste. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Heat olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Scoop tablespoons full of mix into the pan and flatten with the back of the spoon, making sure they are compact and not “cracking.”
  • Slowly fry until golden brown. Flip once and drain on paper towel.
  • Serve with more radish microgreens and lemon wedges.
  • Use fresh garlic – the garlic you get pre-packed in the tubs are too strong for the fritters and will overpower the rest of the ingredients.
  • You can use any other type of hard cheese, like pecorino, if you don’t have parmesan.
  • Don’t be shy with the black pepper! It really adds a lovely zing to the fritters.
  • ENJOY!!
