Pea & Persian Fetta Fritters
The perfect starter or snack. Delicious and nutritious!
350gm YVC Persian Fetta tub – drain oil and reserve for frying (or use 2 x 150gm tubs)
500gm frozen peas – defrosted at room temp for about an hour
150gm fresh ricotta
zest of 1 lemon
100gm plain flour (use besan flour for a gf version)
10gm (1.5 tsp) baking powder
handful of fresh mint leaves (finely shredded)
2 spring onions – finely sliced
15gm (1 tbsp) sesame seeds
salt flakes and ground black pepper to season
yoghurt and Sriracha Hot Sauce (or other hot chilli sauce) to serve
Place the peas in a food processor and pulse a few times until a rough consistency.
Add the ricotta, eggs, lemon zest, flour and baking powder and pulse a couple more times.
Place mixture in a large bowl. Carefully break apart the Persian Fetta into small pieces and add to the mixture.
Add in the mint, spring onions, sesame seeds, salt and pepper and combine gently with a spoon.
To shape the fritters, use a big tablespoon of mixture and roll into a ball and place onto a plate. Repeat until you’ve used all the mixture.
Using a good sized non-stick frying pan, heat to medium and add in enough of the reserved oil to cover the base of the pan. Reduce heat to low.
Add about 5-6 fritters to the pan at a time and press each one down gently with an egg flip to form a fritter shape. Cook evenly, about 3-4 mins each side, until a rich, golden brown. Place on paper towel and repeat until all fritters are cooked using a little more oil for each batch.
Serve with yoghurt stirred through with a little Sriracha (or hot chilli sauce) to taste. Alternatively serve with Whipped Fetta sauce (see Spiced Potato Wedges recipe).
