Ingredients

  • 500 g pumpkin, peeled and deseeded, chopped
  • 1 cob corn, husk and silk removed, kernels cut off
  • 100 g reduced-fat fresh ricotta
  • 40 g reduced-fat feta, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dill
  • 2 tablespoons polenta, cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons wholemeal self-raising flour, (GFO - see note 1)
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

To serve :

  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, peeled into ribbons using a vegetable peeler
  • cups rocket leaves, to serve
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges, to serve

Instructions

  • Cook pumpkin in a steamer basket over a saucepan of simmering water for 7-8 minutes or until just tender. Transfer to a medium bowl and roughly mash. Set aside for 10 minutes to cool.
  • Add the corn, ricotta, feta, dill, polenta, flour and eggs to the pumpkin. Season with pepper. Mix until well combined.

To make 4 fritters per batch :

  • Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add four ¼ cupfuls of the mixture to the pan
  • Cook for 3 minutes or until bubbles appear on the top of the fritters. Carefully turn over and cook for a further 2 minutes or until cooked through. Transfer to a large plate, cover loosely with foil and set aside. Repeat in two more batches with the remaining oil and fritter batter, making 12 fritters in total.
  • Divide fritters between 4 serving plates. Toss cucumber and rocket, and place on plates. Serve with a wedge of lemon.

Notes

  1. For Gluten-free fritters substitute the flour so that you use Gluten-free Self Raising Flour
  2. You can replace the dill with parsley or basil and the rocket leaves with spinach or mixed salad leaves.
  3. We recommend a Balsamic dressing for the salad.
