INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tbsp. Olive Oil, divided
  • 1 Red Onion, finely sliced
  • 2 tsp. Fennel Seeds
  • 1 tbsp. White Wine Vinegar
  • 1 medium Sweet Potato, finely grated or shredded with a papaya cutter
  • 60 g Pepperoni, cut into strips
  • 1 cup Spinach, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. MasterFoods™ Oregano Leaves
  • ½ cup mixed cheese, such as shredded Mozzarella, Cheddar and Parmesan
  • 1 Egg, lightly beaten
  • ⅓ cup MasterFoods™ Tomato Sauce, plus extra for dipping
  • ½ cup Plain Flour, plus more if needed
  • Handful of Basil leaves

Cooking Instructions:

  1. 1
    Heat half the olive oil in frying pan over a medium high heat.
  2. 2
    Cook onions until just starting to soften, then add fennel seeds and cook for another minute. Add the white wine vinegar, remove from heat and leave to cool completely.
  3. 3
    In a large mixing bowl, add the sweet potato, spinach, pepperoni, oregano, cheese, and cooled onion mix.
  4. 4
    Stir in the beaten egg and tomato sauce, then fold in the flour and mix until no dry spots remain, taking care not to over work the mixture.
  5. 5
    Heat the remaining half the olive oil in frying pan over a medium high heat.
  6. 6
    Place two tablespoons of mixture into the pan and gently flatten. Cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side until golden and crisp. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  7. 7
    To serve, plate fritters with fresh basil scattered on top and extra tomato sauce on the side for dipping.

Tips:

  1. 1
    For extra crispiness and crunch, finely grate over parmesan cheese when frying in pan on each side.
  2. 2
    Can be served with mustards and chilli sauces.
  3. 3
    For heat, add a teaspoon or two of MasterFoods™ Chilli Sprinkle.
