Sweetcorn fritters with greens

By on 11th February 2019

I have been busy working with Brita Ireland, to come up with some simple health orientated recipes. We are running a ‘Monday Meal Plan’ for the next 10 weeks with 10 delish recipes to kick start your 2019 in the easiest and healthiest of ways.

Sweetcorn fritters are one of my favorite things to eat! I love the sweetness that the sweetcorn brings balanced with all the other lovely flavors you can mix into it – yum! This again is a very simple dish to knock together and requires minimal cooking skills. Enjoy guys!

Yields4 Servings
Prep Time10 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time20 mins
 4 cans sweetcorn, drained
 1 large egg
 100 g self raising flour, you can use gluten free too
 2 spring onions, roughly chopped
 10 g ginger
 3 tbsp olive oil
 250 g spinach
 1 garlic, finely chopped
 2 avocado, halved and stone removed
 2 pinches salt and pepper
1

Throw 3 cans of sweetcorn,1 large egg, self raising flour, spring onions, ginger and a generous sprinkle of salt and pepper into a food processor. Whizz until everything comes together and is of a puree consistency.

2

Pour the mixture into a medium sized bowl. Stir in the remaining can of sweetcorn and give it a good mix.

3

Heat a little bit of olive oil in a large frying pan on medium heat and spoon 2 heaped tbsp of batter per fritter into the pan. Fry in batches of 2. Fry for 2 minutes on either side or until lovely and golden brown on each side. Leave on kitchen paper to drain off excess oil. Don't be tempted to squish the fritter with the back of the fish slice as this will stop them from being light and fluffy.

4

Place the frying pan back on medium heat and drizzle in a little oil followed by the chopped garlic. Fry for about 30 seconds and then add in the spinach. Season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper and fry until just wilted.

5

Divide the greens on to 4 serving plates along with 3 fritters each. Scoop ½ of an avocado per plate and sprinkle over with a little salt and pepper.

Hi I’m Bella and I am stone cracked about all things food! My love for the stuff started from a young age. When I’m not eating food I’m thinking about it or talking about it or traveling to random places to get a taste of the best that’s out there… An addiction, I admit. But to be fair, it’s not the worst addiction to have, merely the tastiest I reckon!
