I have been meaning to post my super simple zucchini fritter recipe which is perfect to mix in with your morning ritual if you are a savoury breakfast fanatic like myself or looking for some inspiration. This is a great alternative to eggs on toast in the morning as well as a perfect start to get more veggies into your diet early in the morning.
You can make a whole batch and have them for lunch. I did just this and had these fritters with creamed goats cheese and wild caught Atlantic smoked salmon on top with fresh rocket.
The best thing about this little recipe is that they are simple. If you are not a zucchini fan, try my beetroot fritter recipe here, or broccoli and feta one here or my sweet potato one, all made with the same concept.
This particular recipe was poached eggs on a bed of zucchini fritters, fresh avo (very in season at the moment) and my homemade capsicum dip (find recipe here) for the side (can use just straight chilli sauce instead).
They are great for you too:
Zucchini are readily available around September/October in Australia. This is when they are their most nutrient rich. Members of the gourd family alongside cucumbers. They are actually closer cousins to the pumpkin. Zucchini’s contain a good source of soluble and insoluble fibre which is great to help with high cholesterol as well as digestion by carrying the bulk of your food through the gastrointestinal tract. They have a good source of potassium which is great for a steady heart beat and vitamin C in their raw state which will help boost immunity and benefit all of our cells in our body.
Organic Eggs are a full protein that contain all essential amino acids, ideal to help your body replenish, nourish and heal your skin, tissues and muscles.
Rocket is alkalinising and detoxifying green. It is a stimulant for digestion and blood flow rich with vitamin C to aid with immunity.
Cumin evidence based research has showed that cumin has been shown to lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and improve HDL. It was proven to help reduce weight, BMI and waist size for a group of women in a randomised clinical trial (see journal article here)
