Sweetcorn Fritters | Summer Vegetarian Meal Idea | The Gift Loft (NZ)

Sweetcorn Fritters are an easy, cheap and healthy mid week option, on a warm summer's evening. They are also vegetarian, and use minimal ingredients to create a healthy and fresh summer meal.  We love this recipe because, unlike many fritter recipes that use over 1 cup of flour, these are light with only a sprinkling of flour. We use haloumi in the fritters (or use feta), or just leave cheese out, if you prefer. Serve with a fresh salad.

Sweetcorn Fritters

  • 1/2 cup of feta or haloumi (if using haloumi, cut the haloumi into small cubes and gently dry fry until the haloumi is golden brown. Remove from heat);
  • 4 - 5 eggs, depending on their size;
  • 2 Tablsp plain flour;
  • herbs - freshly chopped parsley and coriander
  • 1 large sweetcorn (remove the husk and steam in a small pan of water with the lid on, until cooked. Remove from heat and cut the kernels off the core). You can use one large grated zucchini, instead (or add both the sweetcorn kernels and the zucchini);
  • Salt & pepper.


  1. Place in a mixing bowl, the feta or haloumi, the sweetcorn and herbs.  
  2. Mix the eggs together and pour over the top of the sweetcorn mixture.
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste and sieve the flour evenly over the top of the mixture.
  4. Carefully fold the egg mixture with the flour into the sweetcorn mixture. If the flour is sieved and sprinkled evenly, it should not create any lumps.
  5. Use a non stick fry pan with a little oil. Add large scoops of fritter mixture to the pan and cook gently for about 1- 2 minutes on each side of the fritter, turning it when it is golden brown.  Remove from the pan and store on a plate while you continue to make the fritters.
  6. Serve warm with a fresh salad and a good chutney. We love sprinkling Little Bird Salad Clusters over our salad for an interesting crunch and extra goodness (available in our Artisan Health Gourmet Hamper)
