Golden Baked Vegetable Fritters

Here’s a delicious recipe perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks or lunch boxes for kids of any age.

The beauty of this little recipe is that you can substitute away with your kids preferred vegetables.

When I make these for dinner (with extras for next day’s school lunch) I serve them with guacamole and sour cream and the kids demolish them.

Once again, I’ve avoided the grand mess that comes with frying on the stove and saved myself lots of time by simply popping these fritters into the oven, using the time to tidy up the kitchen and throw together a salad while they cook.

If you’re looking for more recipe inspiration, take a look at my delicious recipe ebook Easy Wholefood Lunchboxes.

It’s packed with 40 delicious nut-free, refined sugar free sweet and savoury recipes which have all been kid-tested and approved!

Many of the ingredients in this recipe can be sourced from my one-stop-favourite, organic wholefoods online store, The Wholefood Collective. They go to great lengths to ensure everything they source is amazing quality, they stock all my favorite products and I don’t even have to leave the house! Oh and the cherry on the cake is they donate profits to improve food security for vulnerable Aussies.

    If I leave out the ham would I need to sub in something for extra flavour. Tuna maybe? Or fine to leave out the ham?
