  • 600g floury potatoes e.g. Maris Piper
  • 150g carrots, cut into ½cm dice
  • 50g peas
  • 100g cottage cheese
  • 75g medium oatmeal
  • Oil for shallow frying


  1. Cut the potatoes into chunks and place in a saucepan of cold water.
  2. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes until tender, drain and allow to cool completely.
  3. Meanwhile, boil the carrots and peas for 3 minutes, drain and run under cold water.
  4. Mash the potatoes, stir in the cottage cheese and vegetables and season well.
  5. Divide into 8 and mould into cylinder shapes. Sprinkle the oatmeal onto a large plate and roll each croquette in it to evenly coat.
  6. Heat a little oil in a large frying pan and fry the croquettes for 5 minutes, turning occasionally until golden.

Cooking Tips

  • Serve with low fat garlic mayonnaise and salad.
  • Try using frozen mixed vegetables instead of peas and carrots.
