Courgette Fritters

We have a glut of courgettes in the garden right now, but as they tend to be a staple part of pretty much any meal I make it’s no bad thing.

These little fritters are a delicious low carb lunch or would make a good little starter. They are punchy with chilli and spring onions, and the salty feta sets of the sweet courgettes beautifully.

Heat the coconut oil in a non stick frying pan and dollop in a few blobs of the mixture, to form patties. Fry for a few minutes on each side until golden brown.
