Ingredients:

  • 4 x Sanitarium Weet-Bix™, crumbled
  • 1 medium beetroot, peeled, grated
  • 2 zucchinis, grated
  • 1/2 cup pepitas or pumpkin seeds, toasted (optional)
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 spring onion, finely diced
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • To serve: side salad, unsweetened plain yoghurt with snipped chives and lemon wedges
4 servings are based on 3 fritters each

Method:

  1. Crumble the Weet-Bix™ into a large bowl. Add the grated zucchini and beetroot.
  2. Add the pepitas, feta cheese, and spring onion. Season to taste. Mix all the dry ingredients together. Stir in the eggs and mix until well combined.
  3. Heat a heavy-based, non-stick frypan on a low heat. Spray with a little spray oil. Cook the fritters in batches. Drop each spoonful of mix into the pan and cook on one side for 4-5 minutes. Turn and cook the other side for another 3-4 minutes.
  4. Place the fritters on a baking tray and place in a warm oven while cooking the remaining fritters.
Serve the fritters with a side salad, and top with yoghurt mixed with chives and lemon wedges.

Tips:

  • Sanitarium Gluten-free Weet-Bix™ makes a great substitution for a gluten-free diet. Substitute the self-raising flour for rice flour and a spoonful of gluten free baking powder.
  • Can also be made using vacuum packed beetroot. Smash up the beetroot in the pack before opening and adding to the fritter mix.
  • Resist turning the heat up too high as this will burn the outside before cooking the inside.
