Lockdown easy cooking : Spiced Courgette and Carrot fritters #easyrecipes #lockdowncook #glutenfree #vegetarian

Another versatile recipe aimed at the new cooks. This one has the added advantage of being very low calorie! A staple for me on a 5:2 diet days.

  • 1 medium courgette
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 1/2 red onion (optional)
  • 3 to 4 tbsp plain flour (for GF use std gf flour or rice flour)
  • 1 heaped tsp cumin (or more to taste)
  • 1 tsp coriander (more if you prefer)
  • 2 cloves of crushed garlic
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 beaten egg (2 eggs if the mix seems stiff)
  • tbs sweet chilli sauce (optional – only if you like really want ‘spicy’)
  • Optional – 100g ricotta cheese or grated feta (you can uses cheddar but this will bump up the calories)


  • Grate veg and squeeze out as much of the moisture as you can.
  • Mix all ingredients until well-combined.
  • spoon 1 tbs onto an oiled griddle or frying pan – medium heat
  • spread the mix a little with back of the spoon so that it cooks evenly
  • you can probably get 3 fritters cooking at one time
  • when it starts to brown on underside flip it over and cook second side

Serve with some mayo (preferably garlic mayo) or a tomato salsa and heaps of green salad.

These are more filling than you might think but if you have large appetites to fill then serve with some couscous or similar.
