Lunchtime just got interesting with these couscous fritters. Make fritters from grated courgette, wholewheat couscous and cheese, then grill until golden. Serve with a colourful salad on the side for a fantastic kids' lunch. See method
of the reference intake
1. Preheat the grill on high.
2. In a bowl, mix the couscous and hot stock. Cover with a plate and leave to absorb for 15 mins before fluffing with a fork.
3. In a sieve, squeeze out as much of the liquid from the courgette as possible then mix into the couscous with the cheddar. Tightly compact the couscous into 4 x disc shaped fritters and place on a baking tray lined with parchment. Grill for 8-10 mins until lightly golden.
4. Serve the fritters with the lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, pepper and sweetcorn as a side salad. Serve with a wedge of lemon on the side.
