Green veg, protein and fibre all in one neat little package! Perfect for a snack or teamed with sides for a satisfying meal, not too dry or gummy for little mouths to handle.

Ingredients:

  • 1 and 1/4 cups almond meal
  • 2 medium zucchinis
  • 3 tablespoons flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped spring onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped coriander
  • rind of 2 lemons
  • 2 eggs (free range if you can)
  • coconut oil (for frying)

Method:

  1. Grate the zucchinis into a bowl and sprinkle with a generous amount of salt. Set aside for 10-15 minutes then squeeze the excess juice out (tip:     save the juice and add to salad dressings).

2. Mash the beans into a paste and combine with the grated zucchinis. Add chopped herbs, eggs, almond meal, lemon rinds and flax seeds to the mixture.

3. Dollop the mix into a frypan on a medium heat with a good scoop of coconut oil. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side and try not to burn your mouth if you cant resist sampling them hot from the pan!
