Crispy Vegetable Fritters (Vegan, GF, High-Protein)

July 28, 2020
Today I'll show you how to make vegetable fritters out of any veggies you have in your fridge or pantry. These crispy golden vegetable fritters are packed with flavor and loaded with healthy veggies.

Most vegetables will work, so long as they are reasonably crunchy and can hold their shape e.g. carrots, courgettes, cauliflower, broccoli. Use a frying pan to whip these up in just 25 minutes. Small fritters make a great appetizer while larger fritters are the star of the meal.

1. Soak the chai seeds in 5 tbsp water. It will thicken and develop a jelly-like consistency to help bind the fritters—you won’t be able to taste them or feel the texture of chia seeds at all.

2. Combine 1 cup brown rice flour and ½ cup almond flour in a large bowl. 

3. Cut the red cabbage, sweet potato and carrots into thin matchsticks or use a mandolin. 

4. Mash the beans. Add the chia seeds and non-dairy milk to this.

5. Make a well in the flour and add the bean mixture. 

6. Fold in the vegetables.

7. Add garlic salt and black pepper.

8. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a pan. Fry the fritters for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. 

9. Place all fritters on a paper towel to drain and absorb the oil. These fritters are best enjoyed immediately after cooking. Hope you enjoy making this!
