What do you do with those tired old veggies languishing at the bottom of the fridge? The ones that are really a bit past their prime. If you’re a bit of a frugal simple living freak like me, I bet you’re always looking for economical new ways to use them up.
I HATE throwing food away, even if it’s getting a bit ‘long in the tooth’ as my grandad used to say, but it’s so dull to use the same recipes all the time.
When I cleaned my fridge out today before going grocery shopping, I found a few sad little veggies lurking in the depths. There was one very rubbery carrot, a seriously out of date head of broccoli (I trimmed off the top as it was a bit past it) and a rather tired courgette. Not very promising and certainly not something a MasterChef contestant would be delighted to see, but I wasn’t about to be defeated.
Remembering a post about broccoli parmesan fritters over at Smitten Kitchen I decided to have a play with the recipe, change it up a bit and make it my own. Do check out the original post as the recipe is simply delicious!
Serve the fritters on a bed of fresh leaves, adding the dressing on the side.
