Zucchini and Corn Fritters

I don't know about you, but some weeks my daughter is just not interested in eating another sandwich for lunch. Quite frankly I don't want to keep serving them up to her either. It's good to get away from the staple fare of bread and it's standard toppings. These fritters make a tasty, nutritous alternative and I am happy to say my daughter loves them! They also make a delicious dinner, served with a salsa and big green salad on the side. Of course the other great thing about them is they are vegetarian. We try not to consume too much meat in my household and discuss the way many animals are treated along with the general impact of high meat consumption on our environment. Needless to say we are always on the hunt for new, family friendly vegetarian recipes. We found this recipe on http://www.taste.com.au/ and ran with it! It works really well with the vegetables listed below but you can absolutely get creative with it. Try adding some spinach, silverbeet or kale along with some grated carrot. Vary the spices for a slightly different flavour. I tend to cook up a really big batch for a big dinner and plenty left over we can all have for lunch the next couple of days.

You can see them pictured below served in our fabulous stainless steel bento trio container. Yummo!

 

Zucchini & Corn Fritters


310 grams corn kernels
150 grams zucchini, grated
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/3 cup your choice of milk (we use rice milk for school)
1 cup SR flour - or gluten free option - rice/buckwheat flour with 1 tsp gluten free baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
Pinch Himalayan salt
Cracked black pepper

Whisk together corn, zucchini, eggs and milk. Gradually mix in sifted flour, cumin, salt and pepper.
Heat a little coconut/olive oil in a fry pan over medium heat.
Using a tablespoon place heaped spoonfuls of mixture in the pan and cook in batches. Using a spatula, turn them once, until golden and cooked through. Drain on paper towel.
Serve warm with a big green salad. They can be refrigerated and served cold the next day for a tasty lunch.

One more argument to get your kids to help with the washing up (and I don't mean stacking the dishwasher). Doing dishes the old-fashioned way -- by hand -- might help curb a modern-day problem: Rising rates of childhood allergies, a new study suggests.

Mmmm, fresh out of the oven and ready for school lunch tomorrow - a fresh batch of spinach and cheese mini frittatas. Always try to include a serve of protein and good fats in your kiddies lunch. These nutrients will help to keep their energy levels up, blood sugars balanced and maintain concentration for an action packed day of play and learning.
