Today's nutritious recipe from Kinder Kitchen - vegetable fritters

Vegetable fritters

These are so simple to make and taste really good.

¼ red pepper chopped into small pieces
1 small leek chopped finely
1 grated carrot
1 heaped tablespoon self-raising flour
1 beaten egg
Fresh pepper

Preparation & Cooking:
Wash the vegetable. Fry the leek and red pepper gently in a little butter for 10 minutes
In a bowl, add the flour, egg and a little fresh pepper to the grated carrot
Add the cooked leek and red pepper to the carrot mixture and stir well
Heat some vegetable oil in the frying pan and add a heaped tablespoon of the batter and press down with the back of a spatula
Cook the fritter for 3-4 minutes on each side until they are golden brown.

Serve on their own, with a cucumber and yoghurt dip or a fresh tomato salad. You can use any vegetables really in these fritters. Just cut them small enough and cook the ones first that need a little longer cooking time. Sweetcorn fritters are also a favourite.
