Who said eating your veggies needed to be boring! These pretty little veggie fritters are completely customisable. Using up whatever veggies are lurking in the fridge or is to hand up on the allotment. With only 3 ingredients (yes I’m counting veggies as 1!) and taking less than 10 minutes to whip up on a portable gas stove, they are a great for a quick lunch when starvation strikes up on the allotment! We keep a stock of glutenfree flour in a sealed plastic container in the shed along with a non-stick frying pan and add whatever veggies are in season!

Is it just me or do work lunches get really boring? During the holidays I have loads of time but when I am at work, I just seem to get stuck in a rut of the packing the same old things OR worse just don’t bother taking any at all.
