A couple of weeks ago some swedes arrived in my Veg Box and I wasn’t quite sure what to do with them.
It is a bit hot for soup so I made these Swede and Feta Fritters (using the spring onions from my Veg Box too) which were a hit with everyone.
They are easy to make but take a bit of patience to cook. I use a pancake pan where 3 can fit together.
Best served with a crunchy salad and eaten warm.
For anyone in the US, please note that swedes are the same thing as rutabagas.
Swede and Feta Fritters [vegetarian]
- mixing bowl
- Frying pan
- 800 g swede
- 300 g potato
- 4 large organic eggs
- 8 spring onions – finely chopped
- 6 Tbsp plain flour
- 200 g feta
- 3 Tbsp chives – finely chopped
- salt & pepper
- olive oil for frying
- Peel the swedes and potatoes. Grate both in a large salad bowl with the coarser side of a cheese grater.
- Press any extra moisture out with a kitchen towel.
- Beat the eggs together in a separate bowl. Mix in spring onions, chives and crumbled feta.
- Pour the mixture over the grated vegetables and mix until well blended.
- Add the flour. Mix again until you have a slightly sticky vegetable paste.
- Season to taste.
- Heat some oil in a non-stick frying pan.
- Shape each fritter by hand (around 2 generous tablespoon or 1cm thick and 10 cm diameter).
- Under medium to high heat, fry 2-3 fritters at the time (depending on the size of your pan) for around 5 mins on each side until golden brown.
- Keep the cooked fritters warm covered in the oven until you are ready to serve them.
