Sweetcorn and Chickpea Fritters

Up until a few months ago I never, ever thought either of us could go vegetarian. In fact  I’m pretty sure a 17-year old Scruff once told me that if we ever got married and I made him dinner without meat he would leave me! Fast forward 15 or so years and it turns out […]
