Recipe: Sweetcorn, Courgette and Chickpea Fritters – Vegan, GF

what you’ll need (MAKES 12)

3/4 cup chickpea flour

3 medium courgettes, grated 

195g can corn kernels, drained, rinsed

2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint leaves

3 spring onions, thinly sliced

1tsp crushed garlic

1tsp black pepper 

1tsp salt 

1tsp paprika

1tsp cumin

1tsp dried or fresh mint 

Olive oil, coconut oil or cooking spray


  • In a large bowl place flour, chickpeas, courgette, corn, mint, onions, pepper, salt, paprika, cumin and garlic in a bowl and stir together well and allow to sit for 5minutes so that the flour can absorb the moisture – it should be a sticky consistency
  • Spray a large frying pan with oil, or 1tbsp of coconut or olive oil. Heat over medium/ high heat add ¼ cup mixture to pan and spread slightly with a spatula
  • Repeat 3 more times and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cooked through
  • You can always cook for 2 minutes of both sides or until holding and then place on a baking tray and place in an oven at 180c for 10 minutes to cook through
  • Repeat until all the fritters have been cooked
  • Once cooled these can be frozen for another time – freeze on a baking tray and once frozen place in a freezer bag so that they don’t freeze together
  • Warm up from frozen

Serve with a Power Bowl containing wild rice, raw carrot, steamed kale and oven roasted broccoli and kimchi. Dressing of olive oil, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and honey or agave.

Broccoli – cut into florets, put onto a baking tray drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and roast at 180c for 15mins (chilli can be added before going into the oven for added heat)
