Ingredients
  • 200g potato, peeled and grated
  • 75g carrot, grated
  • 180g courgette, grated
  • 60g tinned salt-free sweetcorn, drained
  • ½ onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 75g self-raising wholemeal flour
  • 10g flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • 3 medium eggs, yolk and whites separated
  • 25g sunflower oil
  • 3tbsp light soft cheese
  • 1tbsp chopped chives
Method
  • Put the grated potato, carrot and courgette into a clean tea towel and squeeze tightly to get as much liquid out as possible. Tip into a large mixing bowl and add the sweetcorn, onion, flour, parsley, oregano and egg yolks. Season with black pepper and stir to combine.

  • Put the egg whites into a separate bowl and whisk until it forms stiff peaks. Mix some of the egg white into the vegetable mixture to loosen, then fold through the rest of the egg white.

  • Working in batches, heat a little of the oil into a large nonstick frying pan over a medium heat. Put 3-4 large heaped tbsp of the mixture around the pan and pat down with the back of a spatula. Cook for 4-5 mins on each side until dark golden brown. Repeat with the rest of the oil and fritter mixture.

  • Cool the fritters on a plate lined with kitchen paper or on a wire rack, so they don’t go soggy.

  • For each lunchbox, pack 3 fritters in the main compartment. Put 1tsbp soft cheese into a small lidded pot and sprinkle with some chives. Pack with an ice pack or keep refrigerated until ready to eat.

  • Serve the fritters with the soft cheese and chives spooned on top.
