Spinach fritters

Spinach: These iron-rich leaves pack a punch.

Ingredients

  • 500g spinach, well washed
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 100g plain flour
  • 200g parmesan, grated
  • 400ml extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Method

Bring large pot of water to the boil and blanch spinach for a minute. Drain and let cool. Place in a clean tea towel and squeeze as much water out as possible. Roughly chop cooked spinach. Mix well in a bowl with beaten eggs, flour, parmesan and

tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Heat rest of olive oil in a pot and drop in a spoonful of mixture at a time. When golden, turn each to fry on other side. Drain on absorbent paper, sprinkle with a little salt and serve as a snack.
