Softened leeks and cheddar cheese come together in these golden fritters – serve with a watercress salad for an easy veggie dinner, or top with avocado for a weekend brunch.
Ingredients:- Unsalted butter 2 tbsp, plus a knob
- Eggs 3
- Self-raising flour 200g
- Mature cheddar 100g, grated
- Wholegrain mustard 1 tbsp
- Whole milk 75ml
- Red wine vinegar 2 tbsp
- Dijon mustard 1
- Extra-virgin olive oil 2 tbsp
- Watercress 90g
- Flat-leaf parsley a small bunch, leaves torn
- Heat the butter in a non-stick frying pan over a low-medium heat and gently fry the leeks with a pinch of salt for 10 minutes until softened. Tip into a large bowl and cool. Whisk in the eggs, flour, cheddar, mustard and plenty of seasoning, then gradually stir in the milk until you have a thick batter.
- To make the salad, whisk together the shallot, vinegar, mustard, oil and a little seasoning in a separate bowl. Heat a knob of butter in a non-stick frying pan and drop in 2-3 heaped tbsp of batter. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden, then flip and repeat. Put the cooked fritters on a baking tray and keep warm in a low oven while you cook the rest (you should get about 12).
- Add the watercress and parsley to the dressing just before serving, and toss well. Divide the leek fritters between plates and serve alongside the salad.
