Minions Bento Lunch Box

The new Minions Movie comes to the Cinema in the UK on June 26th. To Celebrate I am taking part in a challenge to create something Minion related with Green Giant Sweetcorn.

One of my favourite treats are sweetcorn fritters. I love them served with Jerk Chicken and a minty yoghurt dip. However, not all children love Jerk so I have decided to make sweetcorn fritters for a lunch box treat instead. They go really well alongside a banana…we all know Minions love bananas!…and a little salad of cucumber and sweetcorn.

Sweetcorn Fritters Recipe

  • 60g plain flour
  • pinch salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 30ml milk
  • 1 small 198g can of Green Giant sweetcorn, drained
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil for frying.
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, salt, egg and milk until you have a smooth batter.
Stir in the sweetcorn.
heat up the oil in a large frying pan until quite hot
add the batter trying to keep a round shape
cook for about 1 minute on one side before turning over to cook on the other.
You should make around four fritters, depending on how big you make them.
I made my fritter look like a Minion using Yo Bear Fruit strips and a small circle of cheese for his eye.
I cut the banana in half and decorated it with edible ink pens.

We love Green Giant Sweetcorn in our home, the kids love it’s sweet flavour and I love that I’m giving them something nutritious. It goes with almost everything!
