Egg Free and Gluten Free Corn Fritters

Egg Free and Gluten Free Corn Fritters

I love me a good brunch. Sadly Legoman thinks it’s a waste of time. And with a toddler and conflicting work schedules it’s a rare treat. I always, always, always order corn fritters when they are on a menu. Especially if they come with avocado and bacon…. mmmmmm… bacon. I was flicking through my recipe folder and got pretty excited to find a corn fritter recipe with no egg!!

I modified it slightly to try and make it more kiddie friendly (less spices), sadly Possum still wasn’t keen on them tonight but was happy to gobble up close to a whole avocado and a bucket of yoghurt. Legoman on the other hand said it was a keeper.

I chose to make mine little hand size to make for easy dipping, but you can also make them more grown up sized. I reckon they would be even tastier with a little salsa of some kind on the side. Something a little sweet and a little zingy!

Egg Free and Gluten Free Corn Fritters with Mint Yoghurt and Avocado – serves 4

120g chickpea (besan) flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 tsp ground cumin

1 1/2 tsp ground coriander

1/2 tsp ground turmeric

pinch of salt

200g frozen or fresh corn kernels (don’t need to defrost)

3 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped

A big handful or coriander, roughly chopped

160ml full fat milk or water (I reckon coconut milk would rock too)

Sunflower oil for frying 

1-2 Tbsp chopped mint

salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup yoghurt (plain full fat)

1 ripe avocado (or more if you love your avo!)

First make up the yoghurt by combining yoghurt, mint, salt and pepper in a bowl. Set aside.

Sift dry ingredients into a bowl. Mix in corn, spring onions and coriander. Stir in milk.

Heat 1cm of oil in frying pan to medium high heat. Use a heaped teaspoon amount per fritter, making sure not to over crowd the pan. Cook until golden brown on each side (I left the first batch a little too long and they looked a bit like those old ladies at the beach who could be made into handbags). Remove and drain on paper towel. Keep fritters warm in the oven while you cook the rest.

Serve these Egg Free and Gluten Free Corn Fritters with yoghurt and slices of avocado. Yum!

Rainbow Fridge Clearout Stir Fry

My wonderful day of getting things done was followed by today, a day of getting only a couple of things done. We did get to music playgroup though, and on time too! Huzzah! I had a bean and beetroot burger planned for dinner but time just didn’t allow for it today and I didn’t seem to have time to do prep during the day (maybe the nice nap with Possum this afternoon and getting an awesome new baby wrap had something to do with it…). So a last minute decision was made to make Rainbow Fridge Clearout Stir Fry. I reckon every house has their own version of this. The same way every house does spaghetti bolognese different. They are both tasty, easy meals that are a great way of getting rid of stuff in your veggie drawer. So what went into ours?

First into the pan went: Coconut oil, 1 brown onion sliced, 2 cloves of garlic crushed, 1 long green red chilli cut thickly, 1 stem of lemongrass finely chopped.

Then went in: 500g pork mince, 1 Tbsp kecap manis, a few drops of sesame oil and 1/2 Tbsp sweet chilli sauce.

Cook until meat it done, then remove from the pan.

Then add: coconut oil, 1 sliced zucchini, 1 sliced red capsicum, 1/4 of a red cabbage, 2 carrots cut into matchsticks and a handful of green beans cut into 1/3.

Cook for a minute then add 1/2 cup of stock (I got to use my homemade chicken stock from yesterday). Cook until vegetables are nearly to your liking.

Then add: 3 small packets of udon noodles, some more kacap manis, sesame oil and sweet chilli sauce.

Push the noodles into the liquid to help break them up. Mix through.

Then add: your meat and onion mix.

Mix to combine.

Then add: chopped spring onions and chopped coriander.

Serve with a smile!

I went a bit light on the sauces and seasoning as I’m hoping this will be something Possum can eat tomorrow.

Rainbow Fridge Clearout Stir Fry

Affordability : EXCELLENT. You’re using up stuff that would otherwise go off, so as cheap as it gets! A great oppurtunity to get creative with flavours in the kitchen!

Time Factor : EXCELLENT. Chop and mix and you’re done! We don’t have a wok yet but that would make things even faster (though I did read today it’s healthier to cook your veg slowly so the oils your using don’t oxidise and become unstable).

Complexity : LOW. Make it what you will but no real instructions needed.

Deliciousness : MODERATE. Tummy filling, vegetable laden goodness. I love noodles.

Mess : LOW. One pan wonder. I like to get a bit TV cooking show, and have my veg prepped into bowls in the order they will be added ie onion etc in one and chopped veg in another.

Tummy Filling Factor : MODERATE – EXCELLENT. A bit more meat/protein would fill me up more, but still satisfied.

Possum Friendly? YES. Keeping the salt low with homemade stock and minimal sauces means this will be a good option for Possum. I made sure the veg were cut into shapes that are easy to handle and safe to eat eg carrots into matchsticks not discs. I’m hoping the chilli in it isn’t too much for her.

Would I make it again? Yes, of course. Everyone will!
