Special Diet

  • 3 courgettes, coarsely grated
  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons chopped mint
  • 125 g (4 oz) self-raising flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 125 g (4 oz) ricotta cheese
  • olive oil, for frying
  • salt and black pepper
  • lemon-flavoured mayonnaise, to serve

Mix the courgettes, spring onions, mint and flour together in a large bowl, then stir in the eggs. Mix well, season with salt and pepper, then gently fold in the ricotta.

Heat a little oil in a large frying pan. Add 4 separate heaped tablespoonfuls of the batter, flatten slightly and cook for about 3 minutes on each side until golden. Transfer the fritters to a baking sheet and keep warm in a low oven while you repeat with the remaining batter, adding a little more oil to the pan as necessary.

Serve the fritters immediately with a spoonful of lemon-flavoured mayonnaise.
