Fritters 5 Ways

Fritters make a salad on a cold day bearable!
Here's a few different flavours for you to try out.

Basic fritter mix:
1/4 cup wholemeal flour
1/4 cup soymilk
sprinkle of cracked black pepper

Combine in a bowl & stir well with a whisk.
(You can leave out the pepper if you're not a fan, I just personally LOVE it!)

This is the base to which you can add the varying flavours.

Once combined, just drop spoonfuls of the fritter mix into a saucepan & fry both sides lightly as you would a pancake.

This makes 2 fritters. Perfect lunch for one.

Taste one: Cabbage, corn & chives

Stir into the basic fritter mix 1/2 cup corn kernels, 1 heaped Tablespoon sauerkraut, and chopped chives.
Serve with a salad for a tasty complete meal :-)

Taste Two: Spinach, Mushroom & Onion

Add to the basic mix 1/4 cup drained chopped cooked spinach (either fresh or frozen), 1/4 cup chopped button mushrooms, 1 x spring onions, 1/2 teaspoon paprika.
Perfect partner: couscous

Taste Three: Cheesy Sun-dried Tomato

To the basic mix add 1 heaped tablespoon nutritional yeast, 1 Tablespoon soy cream cheese and 1/4 cup chopped drained sun-dried tomatoes.
Perfect partner: a massive mushroom!

Taste Four: Curried Cauliflower

Add to the basic mix 1 cup cauliflower that has been crumbled in a food processor (cooked or raw up to you!) and 1/2 teaspoon curry powder. You could add turmeric if you don't have curry powder.

Taste Five: Carrot, PB & chilli

Grate into the basic mix one carrot. Add a tablespoon peanut butter & a 1/4 teaspoon chilli (more if you're brave!).
Delicious with sweet chilli sauce!


  1. Have you ever made Potato Latkes - these do contain egg to bind but you could change it to something else. Here are several variations of the recipe. We use to have these on Sunday evening as a child and I still love the crispy taste of the potatoes.

    1. I have never even heard of Potato Latkes! I think I would definitely like them tho! :-)
