Frazzled Fritters & Summer Goodness Salad

Seriously though guys, do any activities during summer not involve a. food and b. money? Please someone help me. My school friend Debs (all round babe, beauty & genius etc..) popped over for a catch up and of course, some food, so we knocked up a vibrant and light lunch of Carrot & Coriander Fritters with a Summer Goodness Salad.

We used a Nigel Slater recipe for our fritters, replacing parmesan with feta. Oh... and changing up the quantites a little... (adding more of everything. Naturally.)

1. Grate 8 carrots into a bowl
2. Chop up 4 whole spring onions
3. Chop up a handful and a half of fresh coriander leaves
4. Put the spring onions and coriander into the bowl with the carrots
5. Add 3 large eggs, 1 and a half tbsp of plain flour
6. Crumble 1/3 of a block of feta into the bowl
7. Add a few glugs of double cream
8. Sprinkle in some salt and pepper and mix it all together

9. Get a pan on the hob and drizzle in some oil ( or spray... we used 1 calorie spray aka "Fry light" #modellyf #bellaforfs2015)

Then we squeezed our fritters hard, as we thought Nigel had told us to do, and placed 'em in the pan. If you are wondering why I called this post frazzled fritters, it is because we burnt them good and then they fell apart. Note to myself and all other fritter attempters - DO NOT SQUEEZE THE FRITTER. Make sure it's real juicy, cause folks, that is what makes it a plump little pillow of carrotyness. It may look like water but remember, it's the egg and the flour so it's gonna firm up once it hits the heat.

10. Gently form your fritters, making sure you get a lot of juices from the bottom, and place in the pan. They take about 5 minutes.

Onto the salad!

1. Add leaves to a plate
2. Cut up your mango into pieces and add
3. Crumble on some feta
4. Add some pomegranate seeds and pumpkin seeds
5. Squeeze over a lime and sprinkle over some brown sugar
6. Drizzle over some balsamic glaze
7. Add some teeny mint leaves


This was a delicious and tangy salad that I could eat over and over and over and over again. It's like a cocktail on a plate, without alcohol. Yummy.
