Crispy Corn Fritters

IMG_4718

I am always thinking of new ways to make a burger. Not in that I seek to mimic the burger taste, but rather the heft. In the end, the formula is relatively constant – the burger usually comprises some sort of bean or grain, spices, and a liquid to bind it all together. And this is all with a vegan or vegetarian subtext. This recipe calls for corn, cornmeal, and a slew of tasty complements. Enjoy!

These Corn Fritters are vegan and so cravingly crispy. You won’t be able to get enough of its glow.

Corn: is a rich source of vitamins A, B,and E and numerous minerals. It is loaded with fiber and thus contributes to improved digestion and overall colon health. Corn’s antioxidant content also makes it anti-cancerous. Corn has been linked to preventing Alzheimer’s.

    OH MY. I’ve already been shoving all the summer corn possible into my mouth–and these look like yet another perfect way to do so! I might try baking them instead of deep-frying if they’re sturdy enough to hold up.
