Zucchini Fritters

I am always looking for new food ideas for baby girl, especially finger foods. Just like us, she needs variety in her food. I made these yummy little fritters for her yesterday and they were a hit. As a bonus my husband loved them too. They made a nice lunch for me with a side salad, and were easy to re-heat in the oven today.

50g melted butter or ghee*
1/2 cup milk (I used unhomogenised jersey milk, as I can get it from a local source)
1/4 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup spelt flour (wholegrain of course!)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3 small zucchini

Mix all the ingredients together, and fry spoonfuls in a generous amount of butter and olive oil (the olive oil stops the butter from burning). They will go beautiful and crispy on the outside, and stay a little mushy inside. Perfect for small babies learning about textures.

You can put herbs in for older bubs and kids, plus peas and feta for an extra treat.

I hope your family likes them as much as mine!

*A good tip to reduce washing up is to melt the butter in the same pan you are using to fry the fritters. Just make sure you wipe it clean with a paper towel so the solids in the butter do not burn.
