Fresh Vegan Corn Fritters

Submitted by: SEA.LEGS1

Introduction

These are really fast and yummy. The jalapeno and red pepper make the fritters colorful and add just a little spice. If you don't have a red bell pepper laying around, just leave it out. Serve with salsa or as a breakfast side in place of potatoes. A cast-iron skillet works best for even frying. These are really fast and yummy.

Ingredients

    6 oz extra-firm silken tofu (1/2 package of the vacuum-packed kind)
    1 tbsp pure maple syrup
    2 tbsp soy milk
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
    1/4 red bell pepper, chopped
    3 ears corn, kernels cut from the cob (about 1 1/2 cups)
    1/4 tsp salt
    several dashes fresh black pepper
    corn oil for frying (canola or any light vegetable oil will do)

Directions

In a blender or food processor whiz the tofu, maple syrup, and soy milk, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula often, until everything is smooth. Add half the corn (3/4 cup) and pulse about 20 times (scraping down the sides after 10 times), so that the mixture is chunky. Transfer to a bowl, add the rest of the ingredients (except for the oil), and combine well.

Heat a thin layer of oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Drop the batter by tablespoonfuls into the skillet. Flatten a little with the back of the spoon (wet the spoon first to avoid sticking). Cook 2 1/2 - 3 minutes on each side, until lightly browned. I do this in 2 batches. When done, rest on a brown paper bag or paper towels to drain the oil.

Makes 15 fritters.

  • This is a really great recipe. To cut out the oil, I like to bake them (350 degrees, about ten minutes or until lightly browned). I prefer to use Ener-G Egg Replacer instead of tofu, roasted red peppers instead of fresh, and corn meal instead of regular. It's delicious ^_^ - 5/11/10
