 Pea Mint Feta Fritters are yummy! I love freshly shelled peas! It reminds me of my childhood!

My Gran used to ask me to help her shell a huge bowl of pea pods. That’s why I love to make these Pea Mint Feta Fritters.

Perfect for barbeques, or even TV suppers, they are so quick and easy to make and if your little ones don’t like their veggies, maybe these will go down well. Hidden veg!

This recipe serves 4 and I promise you that it’s worth the effort of shelling all those peas!

You may have to buy an extra bag of peas though, just to make sure that you have enough!

If you’re like me, you’ll be eating them as you go along!
