Pea and ricotta fritters

Pea and ricotta fritters

I've just started making these great pea and ricotta fritters to pop in my childrens' lunchboxes. They absolutely adore them! The peas are sweet and pop in the mouth and the ricotta makes sure that little tummies are nice and filled up at lunch.

IngredientsBrought to you by Essential Kids'

  • 300g fresh ricotta (from the deli, best quality)
  • 150g frozen peas, defrosted
  • 1 tablespoon chopped mint
  • zest 1 lemon
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • oil for frying


Place everything except the oil in a bowl and mix together well until the flour is evenly distributed.

Turn the stove onto medium and heat about 1cm oil in a non-stick frying pan. Drop tablespoons of the mixture into the oil, slightly flattening with the back of the spoon.

Fry gently on the first side until it is golden, it should take 3-4 minutes. Flip and repeat on the other side. Make sure your heat is not too high otherwise it will burn before it cooks through.

Serve warm with a squeeze of lemon or at room temperature, packed into a lunch box. You can freeze leftovers for up to 3 months.
