Mr Kitty is in the US at the moment for work. He is a meat lover (read: carnivore) so whenever he is away - which is not often - I use the time to have a little bit of a meat detox. A state of semi-Vegetarianism, if you will.
One of the first things I saw when I woke up yesterday morning was a lovely picture on my instagram feed of Horrypop's delicious breakfast. With no bacon loving husband (although, give me some credit - bacon is basically the reason I am not Vegetarian) to cater to, I thought I would give something like this a whirl.
Making the recipe up as I went along, they ended up being a bit of a smash hit. So much so I ate them again for dinner with a lovely green salad. Delicious.
And Little G? Well, she liked them, until she encountered a pea and all bets were off. Peas are the devil's work, according to Georgie...
Miss Kitty's zucchini, pea, feta and mint fritters
2-3 medium zucchini
1/2 cup frozen peas
75g (1/2 cup) self-raising flour
70g feta, crumbled
1 spring onion, ends trimmed, thinly sliced
1 egg, whisked
¼ cup milk
¼ cup mint, shredded
Zest of half a lemon
1 tsp salt
Freshly ground pepper
4 tsp olive oil
Trim the ends from zucchini and coarsely grate. Place in a colander and squeeze out as much excess moisture as possible. Cook peas in boiling water for 4 minutes and drain. Transfer peas and zucchini to a bowl. Stir in self-raising flour, spring onion, egg, milk, mint, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Gently fold through crumbled feta.
