Courgette and carrot fritters

I have been fully spoiled by my family members, who already served me many lovely veggie meals during this holiday. Now I made these simple courgette and carrot fritters for my mum and granddad, as they tend to like them.

These are very basic fritters that are quick to make and they are quite juicy thanks to the combination of grated vegetables and cheese. So they were just perfect to make on this occasion.


1 small courgette
4 small carrots
2 new season onions
25 g Oltermanni cheese (or other cheese)
1 egg
1 dl wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 tbsp vegetable oil for frying


Grate the courgette, carrots and cheese and chop the onions finely. Mix them together and add the egg, wheat flour and seasoning. Add more flour, if the texture of the batter is too moist. The fritters should keep their shape when fried.

Heat a pan and add about a teaspoon of vegetable oil. Put a couple of tablespoons of the batter onto the pan in a fritter shape for each fritter and fry from both sides until properly fried. Repeat the method until the batter is gone and add more vegetable oil between the batches.

Serve with potatoes and sauce, as we did now, or as burgers.

    1. Yes, I'm slightly worried though as I haven't felt hunger since I left the UK, but I guess I can have a diet when I return, haha... i still have almost a week holiday left.


Thanks for reading! I would very much appreciate any comments or suggestions from you.
