Courgette, pea and feta fritters


Feta sauce


1.For the feta sauce, place all the ingredients in your food processor and blend until smooth. Refrigerate.
2.Pour boiling water over the peas to thaw, then drain.
3.In the food processor (no need to wash), pulse the peas until chunky, then transfer to a large bowl. Add in the remaining ingredients, except the oil, stirring well to combine.
4.Heat enough oil in a pan for shallow-frying and cook large tablespoons of the batter until brown. Flip and cook until golden brown and cooked through – about 1-2 minutes. Set aside on a paper towel to drain off any excess oil.
5.Serve the fritters drizzled in feta sauce alongside a simple spinach and tomato salad.

You can replace the shallot with half a red onion or chives. You could also swap out the feta sauce for a dollop of sour cream, just ensure you salt the fritters well. Mint gives a lovely fresh taste, but coriander or parsley works too.
