Tuck into these crisp haloumi fritters packed with spinach, fresh dill and mint. I enjoy them as a virtuous breakfast, though they're equally good as a quick and easy weeknight dinner. Ground almonds take the place of flour in this recipe, and add a somewhat pleasing texture. Serve with thick, creamy yoghurt and a sprinkling of dukkah.
4 free range eggs
225g haloumi, grated
2 large handfuls baby spinach, finely chopped
A handful of fresh dill, finely chopped
A handful of fresh mint, finely chopped
½ cup ground almonds
½ tsp ground pepper
Coconut oil for frying
To serve: Fresh salad
Natural greek yoghurt
Dukkah for sprinkling
A wedge or two of lime
Combine the eggs, haloumi, spinach, dill, mint, ground almonds and pepper in a bowl, and mix to combine.
Heat oil in a frypan over medium heat. In batches, add a heaped spoonful of the batter in to the pan for each fritter, and cook for 2 minutes on each side, or until golden. Repeat with remaining batter.
Serve the fritters warm with salad, a spoonful of greek yoghurt, a sprinkle of dukkah and a wedge or two of lime.
Makes 8-10 fritters.
