Ummm, soft and tender and delicious. High protein, very low carb Ricotta Fritters. Watched Jamie Oliver make this recipe with a much greater flourish! Here's the basic version I eat for lunch at my desk. NOTE: this makes too much for 1 person, but to make a ½ batch do you know how to measure HALF an egg? Just whip it in a measuring cup and measure out 2 tablespoons. A large egg contains ~ 3½ to 4 tablespoons.
Ingredients
  • 1½ cups ricotta - use a brand like Calabro that is dryer and your result will be better
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg - Badia brand under one dollar for 3 whole nutmegs
  • 1 lemon for zesting
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • olive oil
Instructions
  1. Blend the ricotta, egg, nutmeg, ½ teaspoon lemon zest, Parmesan, flour, ½ teaspoon salt and a few grinds of black pepper until a thick batter forms.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat and use a big spoon to make dollops of mixture in the pan - I like to make many, small fritters as they are easier to flip over. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, peek under the edge and if nicely browned, carefully turn and cook on other side until softly firm to touch and golden brown.
  3. Serve plain or with a minced grape tomato salad with olive oil and balsamic.
