My Sweetcorn Fritters are another easy but versatile option for entertaining as they can be served alone, as part of a salad or even as an alternative to a burger inside a bread roll. You can serve the fritters with any dressing or dipping sauce you like but they are particularly good with pesto mayonnaise!
As a rough guide, this recipe makes 8 large fritters or 16 small fitters.
- 400g cannellini beans
- 200g sweetcorn
- 50ml water
- 50ml sunflower oil
- 1 clove of garlic
- 4 tbsp. wholemeal flour
- 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
- 2 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 tbsp. fresh or dried oregano
- Sea salt and white pepper to taste
Begin by preparing the ingredients. Rinse the cannellini beans and the sweetcorn throughly in a colander then add to a food processor along with the garlic. There’s no need to chop the garlic, just peel it. Process for 30 seconds then add the wholemeal flour, nutritional yeast and oregano. Process for 30 seconds whilst pouring in the water and lemon juice. Season to taste then process for a further 30 seconds. You should have a smooth but firm mixture which can be shaped in to fritters. If the mixture is too wet, add more wholemeal flour. If the mixture is too dry, add more water. Warm the sunflower oil in a large frying pan, using a medium heat, then add the fritters. Fry for 10 mintues. Turn the fritters over then fry for a further 10 minutes, or until both sides are crispy and golden. Serve and enjoy.
