Cassava Flour, Pea and Dill Fritters
Tuesday night is a busy one at our place, with everyone finishing work late. We often pull out this super tasty recipe as it's ready in no time, and leftovers can be reheated the next day.
- 3 cups of frozen peas
- 1 bunch of dill, thicker stems removed, chopped finely
- 3 free range eggs
- 1 cup of Three Spades cassava flour
- A dash of milk
- 150g of fetta cheese
- 2 small knobs of butter
- Avocado, tomato, capsicum, cucumber, etc. for salad
- Cook the peas in a saucepan of simmering hot water. In 2-3 minutes, or once slightly soft, drain the peas and blanch in cool running water.
- Roughly mash the peas with potato masher, or fork. Add the dill and eggs, and whisk together in a large bowl.
- Add the cassava flour and milk, and stir to combine, adding more milk if the mixture is too dry. Gently mix in the fetta.
- Heat a large pan on medium, add butter, and when melted use your hands to form the mixture into balls, placing them onto the pan and press flat with spatula.
- While the fritters are cooking, prepare a salad to your liking.
- Flip fritters and cook until both sides are nicely browned.
- You may have to do a couple of batches of fritters depending on the size of your pan (mine was a bit small). Put the oven on 60°C to keep the cooked ones warm.
- These freeze really well! Just wrap individually in aluminium foil and they should last at least 6 months. If you undercook them slightly, you can defrost in the microwave and then quickly throw on a hot pan again.
