Chickpea Carrot and Feta Fritters

Vegetarian or not, you are sure to love this one! The tangy feta mixed with the sweetness of the carrots adds a bucket load of flavour to the chickpeas. And the best part? They are super simple to make and perfect for meal prep/work lunches

 

Meal Prep:

The fritters keep really well in the fridge for a few days and can be eaten cold or hot. You could also make double the amount of fritters and freeze some for a quick and easy meal another day.

Adaptations:

If you are gluten free you can use gluten free flour and if you are dairy free you could try vegan feta cheese instead

Easy option:

If you’re short on time swap the salad for a pre-made salad from the supermarket (like the Coles superfood vegetable mix) and add some dressing
