Quick dinner idea | Zucchini, Mint & Riccotta Fritters Recipe
Ricotta is a staple in our fridge. It’s so versatile and healthy & I cook with it quite a lot. These fritters take no time at all to whip up and again, they are really yummy for kids and adults alike.
Zucchini Mint & Ricotta Fritters
Serves 2 adults and 2 kids
2 medium sized zucchini’s grated
200gm fresh ricotta
1/2 cup plain flour
2 tbs chopped mint or basil
1 egg (lightly beaten)
Good pinch of salt & pepper
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
Drizzle olive oil in a non stick pan and heat to a medium heat.
Spoon a tablespoon of mixture and repeat (I usually do 4 at a time) and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until cooked through. Drain on absorbent paper and serve with a yummy salad.
For a Caprese salad (tomato, basil and mozzarella) with a twist, I pile my beloved ricotta on the tomato and basil instead of mozzarella & drizzle the salad with a lemon infused olive oil. It is so mouth wateringly delicious.
