Ingredients

For the fritters:

  • 4 cups kale (130 grams) frozen or fresh, finely chopped
  • 1 cup peas (130 grams) frozen or fresh
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 3 spring onions finely chopped
  • 1 cup chickpea flour (120 grams)
  • 2 tablespoon flax seeds ground or broken
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup water (180ml)
  • 2 tablespoon oil (if using) for frying

For the drizzle:

  • 2 tablespoon tahini
  • 3 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoon hot water

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all fritter ingredients except the oil: kale, peas, garlic, spring onion, chickpea flour, flax seeds, cumin, salt and water. Stir until all the ingredients are well combined. Let the mixture rest for at least 5 minutes.
  • In the meantime, make the tahini lemon drizzle: in a little bowl, combine the tahini, lemon juice and water and stir to combine. If needed, add a little more water to loosen the drizzle a little.
  • Heat up a large non-stick pan/skillet and add a little oil. Stir the batter through once more - it's okay if the mixture seems a little chunky as it will come together while frying. Use a spoon to drop the batter into the pan to create round patties. Press down a little to flatten it out. Cook on medium heat for 2-3 minutes on both sides until slightly browned.
  • Serve immediately: stack the fritters and pour the drizzle over. Add a little of your favourite hot sauce & enjoy!

Notes

  • You can make these fritters oil free - use a good non stick pan or skillet and reduce the heat a little while cooking. 
  • You can keep these up to three days in the fridge and eat cold or gently reheat before serving. 
  • These are also great served with chopped up tomatoes or salsa, a red pepper relish or pickled onions.
