  1. Put the spinach, chives, cheese, pesto, egg, flour and milk in a food processor, and pulse until smooth and combined. Stir in the sweetcorn.
  2. Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat and brush with oil. Spoon in 1 heaped tbsp of batter per fritter, to make fritters 6-7cm wide. Cook for 1-2 mins each side until golden, then transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining batter, adding a little more oil to the pan between batches.
  3. Serve the fritters in pittas with shredded Little Gem, sliced cucumber and tzatziki, if you like.

Cook's tip: Open-freeze the fritters, then put in freezer bags. Defrost before warming through in the microwave to serve.
