Zucchini and Beetroot Fritters make a nutritious light breakfast or an addition to a picnic.

It must be the season for beetroot with a lovely supply at the markets this week.  This recipe uses beetroot with the wonderfully fresh organic zucchini from the local farmers market. A simple weekend breakfast or a picnic snack. I love to experiment with the color and taste of beetroot, and mixed with the turmeric, these fritters develop a lovely color. Serve with yogurt and cucumber.
