Vegetable fritters

Forget about having to camouflage the veg in this healthy dinner option. These little beauties shine all on their own!

Why they’re good for you:

  • Chickpeas are high in fibre and protein and contain several key vitamins and minerals
  • Eggs are full of protein, healthy fats and vitamins and minerals
  • Broccoli contains Vitamin C, Vitamin K and calcium
  • Greek-style or low-fat natural yoghurt is packed with protein and probiotics

What you need:

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • ½ tin chickpeas
  • ½ onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup finely chopped broccoli or cauliflower
  • 3 cups mixed grated vegetables like zucchini, carrot, sweet potato, parsnip or potato
  • ¼ cup self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tbs chopped fresh dill
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Greek-style or low-fat natural yoghurt, salsa or chutney to serve


  1. Combine the eggs, chickpeas, onion, broccoli and grated vegetables in a large bowl. Add the flour, curry powder, dill and half the lemon juice and mix well  until combined.
  2. Heat a little olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Using heaped teaspoons of the mixture, cook in batches for 2 to 3 minutes each side or until golden and firm. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Serve with natural yoghurt, chutney or salsa and dress with the remaining lemon juice.
