May 08, 2017 | Serves 2
- 2 Eggs
For the Fritters:
- 200g of Fresh or Thawed Frozen Peas
- 2 Spring Onions
- 50g of Halloumi
- 1 Egg
- 50g of Gram/Chickpea Flour
- Sea Salt & Pepper
I’m really into fritters and eggs for breakfast (check out my sweet potato ones here), it’s such a satisfying way to get some veg in first thing and it really feels like your treating yourself to something special. I love how bright and gorgeously green these are and the halloumi just makes them insanely delicious.
Add the peas to a small pot of boiling water and boil for about 6-7 minutes, until slightly overcooked.
While they’re boiling, slice the spring onions and chop the halloumi into very small cubes.
Drain the peas and add them to the food processor with the spring onions, halloumi and a pinch of sea salt and pepper. Blend until you have chunky mushy peas. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk the egg. Add it to the pea mixture and mix well. Gradually add in the gram flour while mixing.
Heat about a tablespoon of coconut oil in a frying pan on medium high heat. When it’s hot, spoon the mixture into the pan and shape into fritters. Cook for 3-4 minutes each side until golden and crisp. While they’re cooking, poach the eggs.
Plate the fritters and top with a poached egg.
