Cottage Cheese, Carrot, Zucchini and Basil Fritters
Place a large frying pan over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil then using ¼ cup measure to make 4 fritters. Cook for about 3 minutes until the fritter feels firm enough to turn over with an egg slide and is golden. Cook the other side for 3 minutes.
Remove to a side plate and heat remaining oil then cook 4 more fritters.
Serve two fritters per person topped with extra cottage cheese, baby basil leaves and a drizzle of olive oil.
