Simple Sweetcorn Fritters

This delicious recipe is low carb, gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian and quick to make.

Did you know that corn is actually a grain, not a vegetable?  It is also a little yellow powerhouse of nutrients, minerals and fibre.  It can help to lower cholesterol, prevent anaemia, control diabetes and take care of your eyes and skin.

If you're a vegetarian, simply serve these fritters up with sliced avocado and a dollop of yoghurt.  If you're not a vegetarian, a slice of smoked salmon would go really nicely with it too.


Makes: 8

Prep time: 10 mins

Cook time: 15 - 20 mins



280g organic sweetcorn, drained

Bunch of coriander, chopped

1 lemon, zest

1 cup (120g) buckwheat flour

3/4 cup (185ml) cold water

4 teaspoons coconut oil



Place the sweetcorn in a large bowl.  Add the chopped coriander and lemon zest, season with salt and pepper.

Next, add in the flour and water and mix well until smooth.

Heat 2 teaspoons of the coconut oil in a large non-stick pan on high heat.  Once the pan is hot, ladle in the mixture.  Cook the fritters in two batches of 4, or divide the oil accordingly if the pan isn't big enough (eg 1/2 teaspoon of oil per fritter).

Cook for about 2 - 3 minutes on each side until browned.  The batter makes 8 medium sized fritters.  

Serve with a side of avocado, and chilli yoghurt (optional).
