This recipe for zucchini fritters is delicious. These might as easily be called zucchini, bean, corn, and stilton fritters but whatever the name, these dinky little cakes can be eaten as a starter or a snack with salsa or as a main meal accompaniment. With all these fat burning vegetables, these are an absolute nutritional powerhouse and even people who don’t like blue cheese will love them. They are also a great way to get a load of veggies into your kids without them noticing! If you really are put off by the Stilton, use any strong-tasting firm cheese but you might need to add salt with the alternative.
