  1. Step 1

    Use your hands to squeeze excess moisture from the spinach.
  2. Step 2

    Whisk the buttermilk, egg and butter in a jug. Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda in a bowl. Make a well in the centre. Add the buttermilk mixture and whisk until just combined. Stir in the spinach and fetta. Season with pepper.
  3. Step 3

    Spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil. Heat over medium heat. Spoon two ¼-cup (60ml) portions of batter into the pan. Cook for 2 mins or until golden underneath. Turn and cook for 2 mins or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Cover loosely with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter, spraying the pan between batches.
  4. Step 4

    Meanwhile, preheat grill on high. Place tomatoes on a baking tray lined with foil and spray with oil. Cook under grill for 5 mins or until skin softens and tomatoes start to collapse.
  5. Step 5

    Combine the pesto and oil in a small bowl. Serve fritters with tomatoes and avocado, drizzled with the pesto mixture and sprinkled with basil.
