Perfect for Adults and Picky Children
Fritters is a quick dinner option for me to cook, because I know for sure that my picky toddler would love them! My son has always been picky and I learned how to please him with the food I make. I know, that I am not the only mum of a picky child out there and many of you can relate! Healthy vegan whole food nutrition is my priority and I am not giving up for any junk food only because my son is so picky. I learn, adjust, and somehow make it work and you can do it too! All children are different, but generally they all like to grab something with hands and eat without using utensils. And most children like pancakes! That is why I make my fritters on the pancake pan, so they have the perfect round shape! It is just like pancakes, but savoury!
You can make fritters out of any vegetables you want! So versatile! But I recommend sticking to seasonal organic ones, so that you get the most nutrients out of them! That is why my choice is pumpkin! I am using Hokkaido Pumpkin aka Red Kuri Squash in this recipe just because I happen to have it on hand! Read more vegan recipes with pumpkin to cook this fall:
These fritters are easy to assemble, just mix up all the vegetables in a blender and fry up on a pan!
How do I make my fritters stick, if there are no eggs! Easy! I recommend using Psyllium Husks as an egg alternative, oats or flax seeds! In this recipe I used Oats and Psyllium husks combined!
Sauce plays a huge role in a dish! We really need to pay attention to it! I have tried these fritters with different sauces including cashew cream, avocado mash and this tomato-tahini sauce! And let me tell you, the tomato-tahini sauce has won this battle! Fritters are already pretty hearty and I really wanted to freshen them up and make the sauce, which will bring out the flavour and really stand out and I made this Tahini-Tomato sauce! I really recommend trying this one out. It involves zero cooking, only mixing up and we get an amazing flavourful quick dip/sauce for the fritters!
