Roasted Broccolini Fritters

Fritters must be the absolute best way of using up bits and pieces lurking in the bottom of your fridge hidden away in the veggie draw.  After attending a great Zero Waste Workshop @ Cornersmith in Sydney with my sister a couple of weeks ago I am currently inspired to ensure that I waste as little as I can.  Last week was super busy so I found myself throwing out veggies (far, far too gone to use) again this Saturday before I went shopping.  I felt so bad, kinda like falling off the wagon.  Speaking of falling off the wagon, I am 8 days into my dry July and feeling great except that the thought of a nice dinner out is not that appealing if you cannot accompany the meal with a glass of wine or two!  This means I will save some money during the month which will be an added bonus.

Roasted Broccolini Fritters

Roast broccolini with olive oil, garlic, salt & pepper.  This should take about 20 mins, leave to cool and chop in a chunky dice.  Mix with shredded baby spinach, sliced spring onions, diced haloumi a couple of eggs and about 2 T of plain flour.  You want a mixture that is not too runny or firm, you can see from the photo below the mix is quite loose.  The fritters firm up when cooked.

Next time I will use a sharper more flavoursome cheese such as feta or cheddar as the flavour of the haloumi got a bit lost with the roasted broccolini.  If you don't have baby spinach, add kale or rocket.  This really is a quick and delicious meat fee meal.
