I have drooled over endless posts and recipes and photos of all sorts of vegetable based patties and fritters, and I’ve even bookmarked most of them, but never actually made any; I’ve always feared that they look so good and are so wonderfully edible that if I made a batch I would just eat the whole lot in one go! But after recent events and the loss of our lovely Selma, I decided that now was the time: I’ve coveted her recipe for sweet potato, courgette and paneer fritters ever since she posted it, so this week, I decided to finally make them.
They are so good!!! I highly recommend giving them a go!! (Photographed with a vintage knife that I bought the last time Selma and I were together)
I made just one amendment as I didn’t have any paneer: I used a hard goats cheese instead and it worked perfectly.
I enjoyed them over a couple of days (yes, I managed not to eat the whole lot in one go!), with my parsley and hemp seed dressing on one day..
…and with a dip I threw together of edamame bean, spinach, garlic, lemon juice & olive oil the next…
You’ve got to give them a try!
I have already written about the lovely lady that Selma was in previous posts, and I am now working through all of her great recipes that I’ve bookmarked over the last couple of years. Her loss remains so sad and such a shock, but we can keep her alive through our blogs and her wonderful recipes, join us in celebrating this lovely lady…
I am sharing these on the Fiesta Friday Tribute to Selma which remains open for anyone that would like to share a post inspired by our wonderful blog friend. Check out her wonderful blog and see what you fancy cooking 😉
To learn more about Selma in her words, read the piece she wrote for my ‘Why we blog’ series last year x
