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.
Inspiration for this recipe came from my darling friend, Little Debbie Bryson who makes something similar at her sop-en-dop* birthday party every winter in Cape Town. Since moving to UK, I have sadly missed so many of them. This is for you LDB, I know it doesn’t compare to yours – but I slurped my version up with a longing lump in my throat. The recipe makes two hearty bowls, filling enough as a main meal, but you could make it stretch to 4 servings and enjoy it as a late-afternoon light meal (cup-of-soup) and halve the macros accordingly..
