Super Simple Courgette, Brocolli & Dill Fritters

Prep & cooking time: 25 minutes | Serves: 1 | Vegetarian

INGREDIENTS

- 70g courgettes, grated
- 2 medium free-range eggs
- 45g broccoli florets, finely chopped
- Small pack dill, roughly chopped
- 2 tbsp flour or rice flour
- 1 tbsp coconut oil, for frying

4. Put a large serving spoon of the mixture in the pan, then add 2 more spoonfuls so you have 3 fritters. Leave for 3-4 mins on a medium heat until golden brown on one side and solid enough to flip. Then flip over and leave to go golden on the other side.

5. Scatter with the remaining dill to serve.
