Courgette fritters – Wheat free!

A great and quick way to use up your veg and also get some lunchtime protein is to have a fritter, mmm! You can also make it vegan by using a chia seed alternative to eggs, see below. There are only three staple ingredients and it takes minutes to make.


  • 2 medium courgettes or one large
  • 2 eggs or 3 tblsps chia seeds with 9 tblsps water
  • Half mug wheat / gluten free flour or buckwheat / brown rice flour
  • Seasoning
  • You’ll need a jelly cloth or kitchen cloth to squeeze excess water from the courgette


  1. Grate your courgettes
  2. Add them to the jelly bag or cloth and strain as much liquid out as you can
  3. Empty the contents into a mixing bowl
  4. Add your flour
  5. Whisk eggs and add
  6. If using chia seeds instead off eggs add the seeds and the water into a small bowl and let them coagulate, it takes about 5/10mins, then when thick add to the mixture
  7. Add salt, pepper and paprika or cumin, garlic salt for flavouring
  8. You can also add some cheese if you fancy
  9. Put a generous helping of olive oil into a large frying pan
  10. When hot, dollop the fritters into cook, form small mound quickly, they shouldn’t stick with enough oil
  11. Cook for ten mins or until nice and brown on either side

Once you’ve become a fritter fan like me, you can make them out of practically most veg, potato, sweet potato, butternut squash and the list goes on!
