Courgette and butter bean fritters 🌱

I have made a very simple little snack! I had high hopes for this and it hasn’t disappointed me.

At this time of year vegetable growers are proudly plucking the last of their crops, giving away gluts of this and that.

Well if you have searched and found this look no further!

This is a very cheap recipe if things are a bit tight, or you are a scrooge.

You will need…..

A tin of butter beans

2 small or one large courgette or a fancy pants one if you so do wish, grate it finely and squeeze excess water off.

Herbs and spices of your choice

(I used ….

fresh coriander

Crushed coriander seeds

Cumin seed

Garam masala

Salt

Chick pea flour

And added chilli powder and a chillies finely chopped to half of the mix as my children are not chillie heads yet!

I mushed up the butter beans with a fork and mixed in the rest of the ingredients.

Made into little patties and coated in chick pea flour.

If you have time put them in the fridge.

Shallow fry the fritters for about five minutes. Turning each side.

Voila!!
