This month’s recipe is fantastic way of using up any vegetables you might have in the fridge. Courgettes are just coming into season and work well with carrots and sweetcorn as used in this recipe. You could use peas, peppers, spring onions…anything! Courgettes have a high water content so squeezing the water out is an important step. You could change the herbs used or add in some spices and even a handful of cheese. The word fritter comes from the Latin word frictura which translates to fried or to fry. Traditionally fritters are fried but in this recipe we have oven baked them- it’s up to you. Have fun trying out different combinations.
Serves 4 Preparation time 15 minutes Cooking time 30 minutes

Whether you grow your own or are shopping locally look out for the following vegetables; broad beans, courgettes and summer squash, globe artichokes, mint, parsley, lettuce, rocket, spring onions, radish, spinach, chard, baby carrots, spring cabbage and new potatoes.
As well as raspberries and strawberries you’ll also find currents, gooseberries and cherries.
