Asparagus and corn fritters (VEGIE!) nom nom nom

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed, roughly chopped
  • 310g can sweet corn kernels, drained
  • 1 bunch chives, chopped
  • 50g snow pea sprouts, roughly chopped
  • 120g green peppercorn vintage cheese (see note), grated
  • olive oil cooking spray
  • sour cream, sweet chilli sauce and rocket leaves, to serve


  1. Preheat barbecue plate on medium heat. Sift flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Add egg and milk. Whisk until batter is smooth. 2 Fold asparagus, corn, chives, snow pea sprouts and cheese into batter. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Spray barbecue plate with oil. Using 1 heaped tablespoon batter per fritter, spoon batter onto plate, spreading each fritter to 10cm in diameter (leave enough room between each so they don't stick together). Barbecue fritters, in batches, for 3 to 4 minutes each side or until firm to touch. Serve with sour cream, sweet chilli sauce and rocket leaves.
NOTES: Best to use a good quality cheese bros, Or else it won't taste as good.
