Whoop! I’ve found another way to sneak veg in to my 2 year old fussyman. These sweetcorn fritters are very cheap, only take about 25 minutes to make a batch of approximately seventeen, and can be frozen. They are the perfect snack size for when you are out and about. In the future I’ll be trying them with: finely chopped broccoli or red pepper, grated courgette or carrot, and spring onions. If you want to liven the fritters up you could use paprika, soy sauce, bacon or feta cheese.
Continuing the kids snack theme, I’ll be trying out some healthy kebabs, as kids seem to like ‘lunch on a stick’. I’ll let you know if it’s a success! For further kids snack ideas simply click on the ‘kids meals/snacks’ category on the right side of my blog.
100g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp dried herbs or small bunch chopped fresh herbs e.g. mint/parsley/coriander
Salt and pepper
1 medium egg
198g can sweetcorn
Put the flour, baking powder, herbs and seasoning into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre, add a medium egg and gradually beat in 150ml milk to form a smooth batter. Drain a 198g can sweetcorn kernels, then add to the batter mix with anything else you fancy. In a frying pan, add a tablespoon of oil. Once hot, fry dessert spoonfuls of the mixture for about 2 mins each side until golden and crisp.
