Superfood Fritters

♬ 'Touch' Amerie
I'm on a super food mission this week, really looking into every single ingredients I'm adding to all my meals and steering away from anything processed or prepared.
What's super about these fritters I hear you say?
With added...
Chilli - clears congestion and reduces blood sugar levels
Turmeric - anti inflammatory properties and natural liver detoxifier
Spinach - Popeye eats it AND huge amounts of vitamin K for strong bones.
Chia seeds - keeps you fuller for longer, amazing dose of omega-3
Coconut oil - great for skin, hair and beneficial for the heart.
Sweet potato - brilliant source of vitamin A and superior fibre content
Raw broccoli - brilliant for cardiovascular support and vitamin C.
This is the sort of shopping list super heroes take to the supermarket!
Let's go...
150g gluten free plain flour
1 small red chilli, deseeded and chopped
100g chopped fresh spinach
2 medium boiled sweet potatoes in skin
1 large broccoli floret 335g
1 medium egg
2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp chia seeds
100ml almond milk
Quickly blanch broccoli in boiling water for one minute then blitz in a blender with soft sweet potato.
Meanwhile in another bowl add everything else and mix.
Stir in broccoli, potato and keep to one side.
Heat 1 tbsp coconut oil in a large non stick frying pan and add small spoonful of the batter.
Fry on each side for three minutes until crispy brown.
Serve with a salad of your choice or a lovely salsa.
