When I’m pushed for time and need to create a meal that’s quick, healthy + purely delicious, I make zucchini fritters. What I love about these is that they not only taste great but they marry with so many of my favourite ingredients such as baby spinach, lemon + avocado. Enjoy them hot or cold  – perfect for breakfast, picnics or  take to work lunch boxes.
