Through no forethought on my part this particular segment seems to be turning into a weekly food post. This is largely due to my phone being on its last legs and my being unable to use its camera unless the phone is plugged in. It is also due to my being mainly at home these past months and needing something to occupy my time. Sooooo........
I've been looking for great vegetable fritter recipes for awhile and finally decided to just try a couple out last week.
First up was Curtis Stone's crispy vegetable fritters made with carrot, potato, and zucchini. Not too impressed, bland. They turned out okay but I obviously did not get enough of the moisture out of the vegetables. There is only one egg to coat all the veggies to get them 'crispy' and for that to work there needs to be minimal moisture. I thought there was but apparently not.
Next up was Smitten Kitchen's broccoli parmesan fritters. Holy yum! Mine don't look as good as hers and likely don't taste as good either but they were well-received. I liked the idea of slighty steaming the broccoli first then mashing it a bit rather than it being raw. Think it helps combine it with the fresh parmesan. These are great as a side or as a snack. I think I'm going to try this recipe with cauliflower at some point.
Still looking for recipes; if you have any please pass along!!
