Pumpkin, spinach and cheese fritters

Another inspiring and super tasty creation from the talented and superbly knowledgable nutritionist, Jessica Cox. Breakfast fritters are a great alternative to bread and bring so much more flavour to a savoury start to the day.

If you wanted to change this up these pumpkin, spinach and cheese fritters would work well with other vegetables such as grated zucchini or carrot. You could also add nutritional yeast for a dairy free 'cheesy' flavour. View Recipe
