Sizzling Courgette Fritters

This was to be a post about making yummy courgette fritters. I was even going to get all "celebrity chef" and photograph the steps!

Unfortunately, the oven caught fire whilst I was pre-heating it - some parchment paper and the fan fought - so that was the end of that! After a lengthy clean-up process (who knew how much mess fire extinguisher powder makes?), dinner was a takeaway pizza. Sadly, that's not as photogenic as homemade fritters, so here's a pic of the dead oven instead. RIP, oven. Thank you for your loyal service.

On the plus side, due to the unexpected and immediate deep clean, the kitchen is spotless!

Anyway, back to the fritters. They are absolutely delicious, and a great way to use courgettes. Here is the Loving It Vegan recipe.

Currently, courgettes are abundantly available and are rich in vital nutrients such as vitamin C, potassium, and manganese. Additionally, they are packed with antioxidants and possess a significant amount of water and fibre, which can contribute to improved digestion.

Incredibly versatile in the kitchen, they can be eaten raw in salads, spiralised into noodles (zoodles - such a great word), grilled, roasted, sautéed, or used as an ingredient in soups, stews, and baking recipes.

Fresh courgettes should be stored in the refrigerator. They can also be sliced and frozen for longer storage, although this may change their texture a little bit.

If you have a go at making these fritters, let me know how they turned out in the comments below.

Happy cooking!
