1. Put the carrots, haloumi, ricotta and egg in a large bowl. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper then mix well to combine.

2. Divide the mixture into 12 even portions and shape each into an 8cm-wide patty.

3. Heat half the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add 4 of the patties and cook for 1 1⁄2 minutes or until golden underneath. Use a spatula to carefully turn each patty and cook for a further 2 minutes or until golden.

4. Transfer to serving plates. Repeat in 2 more batches with the remaining patties.

5. Heat the remaining oil in the same frying pan. Add the chickpeas, garlic and paprika and cook, tossing, for 1 minute.

6. Add the spinach and cook, tossing, for 2-3 minutes or until the spinach has just wilted and the mix is heated through. Serve immediately with the fritters.
