  • 2 cup frozen peas, defrosted
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint (optional)
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil, for frying


  • Blend half of the peas with the sliced clove of garlic, the salt, and the eggs.
  • Add the flour and baking powder, along with the lemon zest and mint (or whichever flavourings you use), and a crack of pepper if desired, and stir to combine.
  • Fold in the remaining half of the peas.
  • Heat 2 Tbsp olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat and fry the fritters in batches. You can make them whatever size you want. I tend to use a heaped soup spoon, which yields about 8-10 fritters.
