Courgette Fritters

1 medium courgette
2 eggs beaten
3 tbsp flour
Salt and pepper to season.

Heat a tbsp of oil in a frying pan or use fry light. Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl and season.
Place 2-3 tbsp of mix in the pan. Cook for a minute or two on each size. To make smaller fritters reduce the size of the spoonfulls. Also for a dryer mix use less egg.

You can use this recipe and adapt it to suit your tastes. I've made chili courgette fritters and sweetcorn fritters too using the same recipe.

Home made Chilli pots

This is a recipe i got from the hairy dieters cookbook. I have since lost the book so have adapted the recipe from what i can remember.

I used approx 350g lean beef mince
half an onion chopped
handful of button mushrooms chopped,
A dash of worcestershire sauce
As much chilli powder as you can handle i used 1.5 tea spoons,
A beef stock cube
Boiling water

For the pots i used tesco light choices tortillas
Salad to garnish.

Firstly fry off your onion until golden using fry light, and add your mushrooms. This is a very loose recipe you can add whatever veg you like really.
Then in the same pan add your mince, break it up whilst it is frying using some wooden spoons. Season and once browning add the beef stock cube, a dash of worcestershire sauce and your boiling water to create a stock. Also add your chilli powder.

Whilst you leave your chilli to simmer and form a dryer thicker consistensy wprk on your 'pots'

Take as many tumbler sized glasses as required for your portions, my recips worked out at about 3 portions. Grease them using fry light. Carefully wrap the tortillas over the top of the tumblers to form a 'pot' shape. Apply some pressure using your hands so they dont just flap out again if that makes sense. Spray the outside of the 'pots' with frylight place them on a baking tray in the oven and cook until they are crispy/done enough for you!

And thats it all thats left is to take your pots out of the oven, they should have held their shapes, decant the chilli into the pots and garnish with salad. I also added a teaspoon of light garlic and herb philli onto the top of my chilli because it was pretty spicy!
