Keto Courgette Cheese Fritters with Spicy Tomato Relish

Keto Courgette Cheese Fritters

The spicy tomato relish really is the star of the show with this dish, as it cuts through the rich, cheesy courgette fritters – it adds a spicy, sweet and acidic freshness which I find is essential. These fritters may be a little too rich and too high in protein to serve as a side dish, but they will make a great breakfast or light lunch option at 2.6g carbs per serving.

Instructions
  1. After grating the courgettes, grab small handfuls and squeeze out all excess moisture and place into a separate bowl. This is an ESSENTIAL step but can be time-consuming. If you have muslin / cheesecloth at hand, wrap the grated courgette in muslin before squeezing and discarding the excess moisture from the courgettes. My mixture started at 570g / 20oz and reduced to 440g / 15.5oz after squeezing. Yours should be something similar.
  2. Add the grated Cheddar and Parmesan to the bowl of courgettes and mix well.
  3. Since eggs come in varying sizes (one store’s “large’ is another store’s “medium”), whisk 4 eggs and use 230g / 8oz of the whisked eggs. Add this to the courgette/cheese mixture and season well with salt and white pepper.
  4. Working in batches, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large, non-stick pan over moderately high heat and drop in 4 spoonful’s (approximately 60g / 2oz each) into the pan. Cook until golden and turn gently, cooking the underside until golden. Remove and place onto a tray lined with baking paper and keep warm in the oven. Wipe the pan clean and repeat the process until all the fritters are cooked.
  5. While the fritters are keeping warm, make a quick relish by combining the chopped cherry tomatoes with the minced chili. Stir in the white wine vinegar and serve the relish on top of the warm fritters.

Recipe Notes

You will likely use approx. 3 tablespoons olive oil in total when frying, and this was how the macros were calculated. Having a roll of muslin / cheesecloth in the kitchen is especially useful for squeeeezing all the moisture from the courgettes.
