These fritters are great to fry up if you’re looking to make a quick snack for potlucks. The secret to a veggie fritter that holds together, doesn’t break apart and has that mouthwatering crunch...

 200 g broccoli
 500 g zucchini
 300 g carrots
 100 g yellow onion, diced and sautéed
 70 g corn kernels
 5 eggs, beaten
 2 tsp salt
 ½ tsp black pepper
 60 g breadcrumbs
 60 g plain flour
 ½ tsp baking powder
 90 g parmesan cheese, grated
 2 tbsp vegetable oil

Using the Kenwood Food Processor with the grater attachment, grate broccoli and carrots together. Remove from food processor and grate zucchini.


Toss grated zucchini with 1 tsp salt and place a fine mesh strainer. Place a bowl/plate over the zucchini to weigh it down. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes to an hour to remove excess water.


Transfer zucchini into a clean kitchen towel and squeeze excess water. Set aside.


In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, breadcrumbs, remaining salt, black pepper and parmesan cheese. Add grated vegetables, yellow onions and corn kernels. Ensure that everything is well combined with the flour mixture. Add eggs and mix well.


In a pan on medium-high heat, heat 1 Tbsp vegetable oil and swirl to coat pan. Scoop mixture using a ladle or large spoon and place into pan. Flatten out to form a patty.


Let it cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each sides until cooked through and golden brown. Turn down heat if patties are browning too quickly.


Remove from pan and place on a paper towel lined plate/baking tray. Repeat with remaining mixture. Serve with your favourite dipping sauce – Thai sweet chili, mayonnaise or sour cream works well.
