I’ve not been very well this last week and it’s left me feeling a little bit “meh” over meat, so I’ve been forced to find some other options and vegetarian fritters seemed like a good place to start.
For the first few days of feeling ill I fell into the trap of living off tins of soup and tuna, but let’s face it, you can’t survive on that forever!
I came across vegetarian fritters in a Facebook foodie group I’m in and after watching a quick video realised you could literally put anything in them!
I’m a lover of spicy food, and this recipe comfortably made 10 Mexican style vegetarian fritters, and I won’t lie, they were delicious!
I served it with some Mexican spicy rice and sour cream – for the record totally cheated with a microwave pack from Sainsburys!
How to make Mexican style vegetarian fritters
- Half a cup of eggs
- Half a cup of plain flour
- 4 spring onions chopped
- 1 pepper finely chopped
- 1 tin of sweetcorn
- 3 heaped tsps of chilli flakes
- vegetable oil
- Add the eggs and flour to a mixing bowl and whisk vigorously until you have formed a batter ( if your mixture remains too thick after whisking you can add another egg)
- Add the pepper, spring onions, sweetcorn, 3 heaped tsps of chilli flakes and mix through the batter mix
- Heat a large frying pan with vegetable oil (not too deep) and add separate spoon fulls of the mixture
- Fry for 2-3 minutes on each side then transfer to some kitchen towel to absorb any grease
Equipment I used
I’m a firm believer that you get what you pay for where kitchen equipment is concerned. Cheap things tend to break easily and need replacing more frequently – its a waste of time.
As always, there is a printable version of this recipe at the bottom of this post, enjoy.
