Leek & spinach fritters
It is safe to say that fritters might be the most versatile and homely meal ever. We have eaten these hot, cold, had for lunch, dinner, breakfast and snacks. They have been to a 6-year-old birthday party and a picnic.
Maybe 2 weeks ago now, we mentioned on Instagram that we had an abundance of leeks ready to harvest, enough to “feed a village” were my exact words, and that we needed to use them up yesterday.
In my opinion, leeks are a too often forgotten about and under-celebrated vegetable, and I got the sense many of you agreed! The popular opinion seemed to be that leek fritters are the way to go, so we thought we would take your suggestion and run with it.
Matt describes these as having "a pretty texture”. And he is right. They are light in texture, super vegetables heavy, and the combination doesn't overpower the flavour of the humble leek! They are full of protein, gluten-free and vegetarian.
