Nothing like a few little fritters for a quick snack on the run! There are literally hundreds of different types of fritters out ther and I have to say these are some of my favourites! Rich in protein, thanks to the quinoa, they are a hit with kids and adults alike and will keep you full and satisfied. Serve with a side of salad for lunch or as they are for a snack.


1 ½ cups of fresh corn cut from the cob

1 cup of quinoa cooked and cooled

½ cup of grated pumpkin

2 spring onion, diced

1 tablespoons of fresh basil, chopped

1 tablespoons of fresh coriander, chopped

4 eggs, whisked

¼ cup of buckwheat flour (can substitute for wholemeal plain flour)

½ teaspoon of baking powder

Salt and pepper to taste

Coconut or olive oil to cook


What’s next?….

1. In a medium sized bowl, combine all the ingredients except the coconut oil. Mix well.

2. Heat a small amount of oil in a fry pan on medium heat.

3.Using a ¼ cup, spoon the batter forming patties into the pan and cook for 3- 4 minutes on each side until golden brown.
