Kumara + Pea Fritters

Inspired by Donna Hay's version, I swapped the self rising flour for wholemeal and coconut and served these tasty little things with a yoghurt and chilli jam dressing with pesto on the side. This is a flexible recipe so play around with it including your side dressings and enjoy :0

  • sea salt
  • freshly cracked pepper
  • 2 cups frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 cup kumara, grated
  • 1/2 cup fresh herbs ie basil, parsley, mint (I used lemon basil)
