These Asparagus Fritters really are a delightful, light and healthy snack or side dish! They are very simple to make too. Wonderful when accompanied by a dip (see photo). We're sure that you'll enjoy these!
½ kg fresh asparagus
3 tbsp. zucchini (courgette) grated, drained and well-squeezed (to remove excess liquid)
3 tbsp. grated cheese – preferably Kefalograviera or Pecorino
3 tbsp. spring onions finely chopped
2 tbsp. wild fennel finely chopped
1 tsp. fresh mint finely chopped
3 tbsp. rusks finely crumbled
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. olive oil
300 ml sunflower oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Rinse the asparagus, keep the soft parts and finely chop these.
Put the olive oil in a saucepan and gently fry the spring onions for 3 minutes.
Remove from the heat, add all the other ingredients (apart from the sunflower oil) and mix well.
Heat the sunflower oil in a frying pan.
When the oil is hot, take 1 tbsp. of the mixture at a time and with the help of another tbsp. form into a fritter shape and deep fry.
Remove the fritters from the oil and place on a dish with absorbent paper.
Serve warm or cold.
Eat and Enjoy!
