Vegetables fritters recipe is a 'great way' to use up leftovers for a 'tasty snack'

Fritters are a classic British dish that can be made with meat, seafood, vegetables, or even fruit.

The ingredients are then battered and deep-fried for their trademark crunchy, golden texture.

With this recipe by plant-based chef and nutrition coach, Lisa Marley (@lisamarleychef), it’s easier than ever to quickly whip up some healthy snacks using items that are already on hand at home.

Lisa said: “These chickpea and vegetable fritters are a great way to use up leftover veggies and create a tasty snack or side dish.

“Serve your vegetable fritters hot, perhaps with a dipping sauce like yoghurt-based tzatziki or simple tomato salsa.”


Combine the chickpea flour and plant milk in a large bowl and mix into a smooth batter. More milk or water can be added if required to achieve a thick but pourable consistency.

Add the grated carrot, onion, and courgette to the batter then season with salt, pepper, and baking powder (if using). Mix everything together until the vegetables are well coated in the batter.

Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat and add enough cooking oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Once the oil is hot, carefully drop spoonfuls of the vegetable batter into the pan, forming fritters.

Lisa said: “You may need to spread them out a bit with the back of the spoon to ensure even cooking.”

The fritters should be fried for just two to three minutes on each side or until golden brown and crisp. 

Once cooked, remove the fritters from the pan and plate on a plate lined with paper towels to remove any excess oil.
