I always always forget how much the twins love these Zucchini and Pea Fritters. To the point where they gobble their share and mine. But I really can’t complain because there really is nothing better than your kids loving a veggie packed lunch.
The twins and I really enjoyed making these Zucchini and Pea Fritters together and we used our new Magimix Cook Expert that we have been gifted to try. We used the food processor grater attachment for the zucchini and it grated it brilliantly. Mr 3 especially wanted to be in charge of helping with the Magimix and he loved seeing the Magimix in action.
These Zucchini and Pea Fritters are moist and light and you can easily double or triple the recipe and add a salad for a more substantial dinner. I love to serve these fritters with lemon wedges on the side. You also don’t have to put the peas in them just substitute for another zucchini. If you are worried your kids wouldn’t like the feta you could always change it to the same amount of parmesan or cheddar cheese.
All my kiddies lived on these fritters when they were weaning. And the best part was that they were a meal we all loved, it’s so nice to just make one meal for all isn’t it? Even Mr 7 loved these before he started being a bit of a picky pants.Print
