Recipe: Veggie Fritters

Veggie Fritters are something I love to make whenever I have a whole range of veggies to use up, because you really can throw in anything you like and they will taste delicious. So feel free to substitute the veggies I used for anything you have sitting in the fridge (or garden!)

These fritters are great for lunches and also freeze well. Just wrap them individually and pop in the freezer and then when you want to eat them cook them in the oven for about 10 minutes at about 180 degrees. Too easy!

Ingredients List

  • Potatoes
  • Zucchini
  • Onion
  • Corn
  • 1 cup wholemeal flour
  • 1tsp of baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp paprika (or any spice you like)
  • 1 cup milk (I use almond milk, but go with your favourite)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Grate the potatoes and squeeze out the excess starch
  2. Grate zucchini and dice the onion
  3. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl except the milk
  4. Slowly add the milk while stirring to combine the ingredients
  5. Cover the bowl and leave it to rest for approximately 30 minutes
  6. Heat some oil in a pan and add spoonfuls of the mixture
  7. Cook til browned on both sides
  8. Enjoy!

    I love veggie fritters! They’re so simple and underrated but really yummy! I find that you can grate pretty much any vegetable into them and it works. I also add parsley and I make a yummy avocado salsa to serve.

    Thanks for the recipe 🙂

      That’s one of my favourite things about them – you can add any veggies you’ve got, and top them with a huge range of things! This time I had tomato relish with them but avocado salsa is great too! Plus, they are pretty much fool-proof!
      Thanks for stopping by!

    I am a huge fan of using Halloumi in my veggie fritters. It has a great consistency and adds a very subtle flavour! These look amazing – will definitely give them a go! 🙂

      Ooh halloumi is a great idea! Will definitely give that a go the next time I make these (which let’s face it, won’t be too far away!)
      Thanks for the comment!

    These look great! And I love your step-by-step photos. It’s so much easier to visualise how something is done when it’s right there in front of you!

        Ooh exciting! I get that box too but this is my ‘off’ week so it will be interesting to compare what you get this week and what I get next week! Enjoy!

    It’s been so long since I made veggie fritters! These look perfect. 🙂 I like corn and cheddar cheese in mine!

      Thanks for the lovely comment! I love them predominantly made out of corn too – this time I just had too many potatoes to be used! The addition of cheddar cheese sounds delicious!
