Method

Step 1

Make the tomato salsa. Mix together the cherry tomatoes, red onion and extra virgin olive oil with a little salt and pepper. Set aside, and leave the basil for later.

Step 2

To make the fritters, mix together the flour, eggs and hot smoked paprika in a large bowl. Add in the broccoli, courgette, spinach, crushed garlic and dill, with plenty of salt and pepper. Mix together until all the vegetables are well coated.

Step 3

Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan. Spoon in 2 tbsp-sized mounds of fritter batter in the pan, flatten with the back of the spoon and cook the fritters for 2-3 minutes on each side.

Step 4

Once cooked, transfer to a board lined with kitchen roll. Repeat until all the mixture has gone.

Step 5

Add the torn basil to the salsa. Divide the fritters between the plates, and serve with a large spoonful of salsa on top.
