Summer picnics with summer vegetable fritters
When summer finally arrives one of our favourite things to do here at Clean Little Tummies is head out for picnics. I think almost every day of the summer holidays last year had some sort of picnic in it. One of the best things about the long summer evenings is packing tea and heading off into the countryside for a chilled picnic (on days when the social lives of three children allows it of course!). Picnic or not, Clean Little Tummies still need feeding wholesome goodness, and these gorgeous golden fritters are a perfect lunchbox/teabox filler.
These yummy fritters are filled with fibre, protein and calcium. Perfect finger food for a picnic without any compromise on wholesome nutrition, they can be served hot or cold. They contain three vegetables, eggs and cheese, so a good all-round meal for Clean Little Tummies or a Happy Mummy. Serve them with some of our sweet potato fries and avocado dip and I'm pretty sure you won't have any complaints on the picnic blanket!
Ingredients to make about 12 fritters
2 courgettes, grated
2 carrots, grated
75g of sweetcorn
160g self raising flour
50g parmesan, grated
oil for frying
Seasoning to taste or some chilli flakes really add some flavour if you fancy a more punchy taste.
How to make these golden fritters
Simply mix all the ingredients (except the oil) in a bowl until you have a well mixed batter.
Heat some oil on a medium heat
When the oil is hot add small batches of the batter to the pan.
Turn them when they are golden brown, flattening them down as you do to ensure that they cook through. You may want to turn them a few times to make sure they are fully cooked.
Remove from the pan and either serve immediately or box them up in to a picnic box and enjoy them on a warm summers evening. These can also be frozen in an airtight container.
Pack them up in a beautiful lunch box like Belle is using from The Little Picture Company. Pretty and Personalised and very popular with 5 year olds!
Enjoy your picnic!
