Recipes: Egg Free Corn + Vege Fritters

Once upon a time, I didn’t cook. I moved straight out of home and went boarding with a lovely family, while I studied. My amazing stand-in-Mama cooked for me, and I had lots of noodles for lunches hehe. I then moved home for a few months, where my Mum cooked. I then moved in with my boyfriend (now husband). He’d been flatting for years, so was used to fending for himself. He did most of the cooking, mostly because he was good at it! And I had no idea what I was doing. Slowly I started helping and doing a couple of meals a week…

Fast forward to now and I cook every night, and I love it! Especially since becoming a stay at home Mum… being in the kitchen, alone, is my time. The husband gets home, he’s on kid duty and I get to go and cook dinner. Works well!

Now to the fritter talk… I used to love the idea of corn fritters, my friend Amanda used to make them for our toddlers when they were just starting on finger foods. Her fritters always looked so yummy and crispy on the edges. Whenever I would try them at home, they were big fat FAILs. I would get all huffy after the first batch came out of the pan and throw the whole mixture out. Then I’d whinge to the husband and tell him that I’m never trying fritters again. A month or so later, I’d go to Amanda’s house, come home and try them… repeat of the above. Another few months… repeat. FAIL. FAIL. FAIL.

One day I had a fritter epiphany! And I’ve been slightly obsessed ever since. I often get asked for my fritter recipes after I Instagram or Snapchat them (like once a week haha) so thought I would share my successful egg-free fritter recipes:

CORN FRITTERS

1 can of creamed corn
1 cup plain flour
1 3/4 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp water/milk
salt
pepper
whatever else you want to add (ham, bacon, grated veges, etc)

Fry in your choice of oil.

VEGE FRITTERS
1/2 cup of plain flour
1/2 cup of milk
1 carrot – grated
1 medium kumara – grated
salt
pepper
You can add whatever grated veges you like, zucchini is a popular one.

Fry in your choice of oil.

Hope you enjoy!
