Rutabaga and Feta FrittersĀ [vegetarian]



Author Notes: A couple of weeks ago some rutabagas arrived in my Veg Box and I wasn't quite sure what to do with them.

It is a bit hot for soup so I made these fritters (using the spring onions from my Veg Box too) which were a hit with everyone.

They are easy to make but take a bit of patience to cook. I use a pancake pan where 3 can fit together.

Best served with a crunchy salad and eaten warm.
