Veggie Fritters

Veggie FrittersOne of my all time, quick fix savoury snacks.

These yummy fritters can be a great way to add protein in for lunch with a salad or an afternoon tea snack or even for a veggie burger.

Ingredients

1 carrot

2 zucchini

1 Corn on the cob (kernals)

2 Eggs

3 tbs cornflour

Salt and pepper

Coriander (dried)

Cumin (dried and ground)

Olive oil

Directions:

Grate the zucchini and carrot.

Remove the corn kernels from the cob.

Combine the egg, cornflour and seasonings in a bowl.

Add in the vegetables and mix well.

Heat a fry pan on high.

Add a little olive oil to shallow fry.

Take heaped tablespoonfuls of veggie mix and drop them into the pan. Let them cook until slightly browned then flip and brown on the other side. (Few minutes each side.)Remove and drain on paper towel.

 

Repeat until you use up all the mix. Drop the heat to medium /low if they are browning too quickly.

Vegetable Kebabs on the BBQ

Vegetable KebabsThese vegetable kebabs are one of my token favourite vegetarian meals to bring to a BBQ. Make sure you make extra because there won’t be any left. Tofu (from soy beans)  is one of those versatile foods that you can add to a stir fry, BBQ, soup, desserts, breakfasts (and the list goes on). It readily takes up flavours and is a high source of protein without the fat.

Vegetable Kebabs

Ingredients

1 pack Firm Tofu

2 large Zucchini

1 large Red Capsicum

Tamari

Olive oil (optional)

You will need wooden skewers and a star shaped cookie cutter

_AAA0437Prepare the tofu by chopping into 3x 3 cm cubes. Place in a bowl and splash over 2 tbs of tamari. Stir through until all sides of the tofu cube are covered and set aside.

Cut the zucchini into thick rounds. Use the cookie cutter to cut out the middle of the zucchini, leaving the outside circle in tact. Set aside the circles and the stars.

Chop the capsicum into chunks.

Thread a piece of tofu, followed by capsicum, zucchini, and repeat or make up your own pattern.

At this point, you can drizzle a little olive oil (optional) over the kebabs before they hit the BBQ.

Grill on the BBQ for a few minutes on each side until browned.
