Summer's here with a vengeance and I'm back in the kitchen and experimenting with recipes that don't need a stove. When I do have to use the stove I try and do it early in the morning before the sun comes beaming in my western facing window.
I love messing about in the kitchen, playing with new ingredients and concocting yummy dishes. This one has peas in it! Yes I know, not very interesting but I haven't eaten them for years. Turns out they're pretty yummy. Even the kids liked them!
Pea and Zucchini Fritters
3 cups frozen peas
3 small zucchini grated
1/4 cup coarsely chopped mint leaves
2 tbsp dill
2/3 cup buckwheat flour
Coconut oil for frying
Cook frozen peas for 2 minutes in boiling water or until tender. In a heat-proof bowl, coarsely mash the peas.
Grate zucchini and pat dry between paper towel. Add to the peas.
Chuck in the dill and mint.
Whisk the eggs and add to the veggies.
Add the flour and stir well.
Heat a fry pan over medium high heat. Lightly coat the bottom of the frying pan with coconut oil.
Spoon tablespoons of batter into the pan. Fry for two minutes each side or until mixture bubbles on the surface. Smaller, fat patties worked best for me.
Serve hot or cold with cherry tomatoes and smoked trout. Yummo!
