Carrot, Cheddar & Sage Fritters

Last Friday's cheat meal, I was in need something crispy and tasty to go with a lovely glass of dry white wine. Using the fritter recipe collection from Gourmet Traveller for inspiration I looked in the bottom of my vegetable crisper to find a lone carrot, a lemon and spring onions.

First up peel your carrot and par boil.  Grate the carrot and sharp cheddar cheese.  Mix with grated lemon zest, chopped spring onion, fresh sage leaves, S&P and a small amount of plain flour to bind.  Press firmly into small patties, if you can wait, chill for 30 minutes.  I did not bother and they held together well when shallow frying.  The quantities to taste but be sparing with the flour to avoid a gluggy mix.

Pan fry in olive oil and serve with crispy sage leaves and a lemon cheek.  A squeeze of lemon cuts through the richness of the fritter and adds a fresh taste to the mix.
