Ricotta and Pea Fritter

I ate some delicious ricotta fritters at The New Inn in Settle and had been thinking about making my own ever since.  I found a recipe online and augmented it to suit me.

  • 250g Ricotta
  • 4tbsp flour
  • 1 egg
  • 30g cheddar cheese
  • 4 Spring Onions
  • Peas (a handful ish)
  • Rind of 1 lemon
  • Sprinkle of nutmeg
  1. Mix all the ingredients.
  2. I fried the fritters in coconut oil by melting the oil in a frying pan and spooning a dollop onto the pan and squishing it down slightly to flatten it.  I was able to fry 3 at a time and I made 6 in total with the mixture.

My fritters were really nice and had a subtle flavour of lemon and spring onion.  Other people may like a stronger flavour to there food and want to add spices or stronger tasting vegetables.
