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
