The fresh mint and dill with the sharp feta and fresh clean flavour of the peas make these fritters perfect with cocktails or a beer for a snack. They also work beautifully as a first course while you are prepping the rest of your dinner. They are gluten-free to boot! Serve them with a yogurt dill sauce, your favourite spicy hot pepper sauce, or just a wedge of lemon.
1 teaspoon Massel Vegetable Stock Powder
2 cups fresh or thawed green peas
2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
2 tablespoons mint, chopped
2 green onions, finely chopped
85g/3oz crumbled feta cheese
¼ cup coconut flour
Juice of half of a lemon
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
In a bowl, combine peas, dill, mint, onions, feta cheese, eggs, Massel Vegetable Stock Powder, ground pepper, flour and lemon. Mix until egg and flour are thoroughly incorporated.
Heat up coconut oil over medium heat in a non-stick pan.
When pan is heated, spoon a dollop of mixture in oil, forming about 2-inch discs.
When first side is brown, turn gently until second side is brown. This whole process should take about 2 to 3 minutes.
Place on a pan lined with paper towel. Repeat until the entire batter is cooked.
Sprinkle with a little extra Massel Vegetable Stock Powder. Serve immediately with a sauce of your choice.
