Plate Up. Pea & Fetta Fritters

I've never been that huge of a sandwich fan, which is why I love meals that I can cook for dinners and then take to work for lunch the next day. My lovely friend Cayleh sat down the other day with these gorgeous looking fritters and I asked her for the recipe. So glad I did because they are definitely a winner; super simple, full of flavour and they freeze and reheat really well. These little guys have your dinner and lunches sorted... hell, they'd even be good for breakfast!

What you'll need
1 1/2 cups frozen baby peas
3 spring onion stalks, chopped
1 teaspoon chilli flakes
1 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons dill
100g fetta, crumbled
2 eggs, whisked
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup self-raising flour

What to do
Cook your peas in the microwave until tender; approx. 3-4 minutes then add them to a large bowl and mash them well. Add the spring onion, chilli, paprika, dill, fetta, eggs and milk. Mix well.

Add the flour in a little at a time until you reach a pancake-like consistency. You may need a little more or less.

Oil a large fry pan and, on medium heat, spoon tablespoon-dollops in to cook. They will shape themselves, I can fit about 4 in my pan. Cook for a few minutes either side.

Serve with lemon wedges and salad.
