    Courgette fritters with avocado salsa

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes 35 minutes

    Serves: 4


    3 essential Waitrose courgettes, coarsely grated
    3 salad onions, chopped
    125g self raising flour
    2 large eggs
    125g essential Waitrose Italian ricotta
    3 tbsp olive oil

    For the salsa

    1 ripe avocado, chopped
    2 tomatoes, chopped
    3 salad onions, finely sliced
    5 basil leaves, torn


    1. Mix the courgettes, salad onions and flour together; crack in the eggs and beat well to combine. Season, then fold into the ricotta, not doing too thorough a job, so you are left with lots of ricotta lumps.

    2. Cook the fritters in 3 batches: heat 1 tbsp oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and drop in 2 heaped tbsp of batter per fritter. Cook for 3 minutes on each side, or until golden.

    3. Meanwhile, combine all the ingredients for the salsa and season. Serve the fritters with the salsa alongside.
