STEP 6: In a fry pan, heat your olive oil to medium heat and spoon 2TBS size amounts per fritter. Leave to fry for 2-3 minutes each side

STEP 7: Keep frying and flipping until you have a golden stack of Broccoli Fritters ready to eat!

Zucchini slice

Cooking, healthy recipes

Zucchini slice-  Thermomix  style (but really, a normal processor will work too!)


½ red onion

2Tbsp oil

3 large zucchinis

6 eggs

150g Danish feta 

4Tbsp flour (I use gluten free)

A pinch of Maldon sea salt

1tsp of paprika 

1/2 tsp each of coriander & cumin

I added a few splashes of Tabasco, optional (not in pic)


Cut onion into quarters and place in thermomix bowl. Process for 5 seconds on speed 4. Scrape down sides. Add oil and heat for 2 minutes, 90 degrees and speed 1.

Add in roughly chopped zucchini and process depending on how chunky you want your zucchini. For us it’s roughly chopped so I do a couple of seconds on speed 4. If you want chunkier just press turbo once or twice or chop for an extra few seconds for finely chopped.

Add in eggs, feta, spices, tabasco (optional) and flour. Process for 5 seconds on speed 3. Pour into a lined square tin and bake for about 25-30 minutes in a 200C/400F oven until nicely golden on top.

Leave for a few minutes to cool in the tin then slice and enjoy.

If you don’t have a thermomix then just make it all in a food processor or just grate the onion and zucchini and mix into other ingredients in a bowl.
