Little People Veggie Fritters

Hi Guys,

 

I have to say first up I don’t buy into the ‘hidden vegetable’ debate. To me if I can get them to eat it them it’s a bonus. And I want my little ones to enjoy what they eat and hope that one day they are going to share my love for good yummy food! Plus if they love the food than dinner time is no longer a struggle. These are a winner and packed with veggies. I serve them with meat usually but you can just add some bacon or roast chicken to the mix or simply serve them as a vegetarian dish. I have written up what I have put into them but the beauty of this recipe is you just add in what ever you have in the fridge. And I like to serve with a fun dipping sauce.

 

INGREDIENTS:

50g Cheese (I use Cheddar or Tasty)

1 Small Onion (optional)

500g Mixed Vegetables (I have used 1x Carrot, 1/2 Zucchini, Pumpkin, Small Potato, Sweet Potato)

1/2 Cup Frozen Peas

1/2 Cup Frozen Corn

3 eggs

Oil

 

METHOD:

  • Place cheese into TM bowl blitz for 6 seconds Speed 8. Remove and set aside.
  • Place the mixed vegetables into the TM bowl (except the peas and corn.) Chop for 5 seconds speed 5. Check consistency and chop further if needed. Ensure there are no large lumps.
  • Add a splash of oil and cook for 5 minutes, Reverse Speed 1 at 100 degrees.
  • Allow to cool.
  • Add eggs, cheese and frozen veg to mix and combine for 5 seconds, Reverse Speed 3. Mixture must be cool enough so that the egg doesn’t scramble when mixed.
  • To fry the fritters you can spoon the mixture onto a lightly greased fry pan on medium heat. (Sort of like you would cook a pancake.)
  • To jazz them up a little bit I love to use the cookie cutter shapes. (Or you can use an egg ring.) I grease the shapes and spoon the mixture in. I use a low/medium heat as they will need to cook through without burning on the outside. I made Rockets and Trains the other night and they were a great hit!
TIPS:
  • Great way to Jazz up vegetables and super quick and easy. Designed to be able to use what ever your child loves or what you have in the fridge.
  • Cheese is optional but isn’t everything better with cheese?
  • Add Tuna, Salmon or Bacon to the mix to give a wholesome complete meal.
  • Make sure mix is cool enough before adding the egg otherwise it will cook and scramble. You can remove the mixture into a mixing bowl let it cool and then hand mix in the eggs, cheese and frozen veg.
  • They are great the next day and can be eaten cold.
