These fritters would be perfect alongside a nice Sunday roast. They taste like a combination of Brussels sprouts and Yorkshire puddings. You can actually use this fritter recipe as a base and add any vegetables you like such as thinly sliced cauliflower or broccoli.

Makes: 8 fritters



  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 150g Brussels sprouts, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • Pinch sea salt
  1. Add eggs, milk and spelt flour to mixing bowl and beat until combined and no lumps remain. Add sprouts and mix until all are coated in the batter.
  2. Heat olive oil in large frypan over medium heat. Add a few spoonfuls of mixture to oil. You should fit approx. 4 fritters in pan at a time.
  3. Cook on each side for 5 mins until golden brown. Continue until all batter is used up.
  4. Serve hot topped with pinch of sea salt.
