METHOD
  1. Roughly puree the peas, we like to leave a little texture. 
     

  2. Combine with courgette, feta and all other ingredients and gently combine.
     

  3. Roll into golf ball size fritters and press to form a round disc shape.
     

  4. For the pea salad simply combine the lemon juice and oil, add to the ricotta along with the mint and cheese.
     

  5. Mash the peas and broad beans then fold into ricotta mixture. Taste to check seasoning. Set aside.
     

  6. To make the dressing, simply blend ingredients together until smooth. Set aside.
     

  7. Heat a pan over a med heat and add the oil. When hot fry off the fritters and keep warm in the oven.
     

  8. Serve fritters topped with salad and feta dressing.

TIP: At countdown, you can buy pre-cut, frozen zucchini for $2.50 (& other vege) in the frozen vege section! Frozen is just as nutritious as fresh vege.
