Step 3

In a bowl mix together the cooked broccoli and sweetcorn, and make sure all the moisture is drained.

Step 4

Step 5

Season with some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, then add one of the eggs. Stir well so that all the ingredients are mixed thoroughly.

Step 6

The mixture should be moist but not soggy, just enough to bind the ingredients. If it seems a bit too dry add the other egg.

Step 7

In a decent sized frying pan heat up some Low calorie cooking spray. Then using a 1/4 cup measure put 5 scoops in the hot pan, leaving enough space between each one so you can turn them easily.

Step 8

Cook for about 3 minutes, until they are golden brown on the bottom, then flip them over and cook them for another 3 minutes.

Step 9

Remove them from the pan, add some more low calorie cooking spray then cook the remaining mixture in the same way. There should be enough left for another 5 fritters.
