Most Epic Corn Fritters with Avocado Salsa
By Sarah Elizabeth John
Google analytics informs us that 98% of you are female. So where on earth are all the fellas at?! Surely there are healthy males out there who would love our recipes...or at least love to cook them for their significant other. Surely. What do you think? Is there a male in your life that might be interested in cooking a Roast? Or Ribs? Or Sausage Rolls even? See! We do dude food too!
Anyway, being that I am on a mission to manifest a healthy hunk I am starting right here, on my blog. Today, please make welcome the DUDE of healthy (hunky) dudes, Dan Churchill (aka The Healthy Cook). Dan's most epic corn fritters with avo salsa are sure to blast the pants off the dudes and dudettes in your life.
You will need:
1 sweet corn, kernels removed
1/2 handful Chives, sliced
Pinch of Salt
1 cup almond meal
2/3 cup almond or regular milk
2 tbsp olive oil
For the salsa:
1 spanish onion, roughy chopped
1 tomato, roughly chopped
1/2 handful coriander leaves, roughly chopped
1 cucumber, roughly chopped
Juice of half a lemon
2 tbsp of pepitas, pounded in mortar and pestle
1/2 long red chilli, seeds removed, finely chopped
1 avocado, diced
In a bowl combine the almond meal, onion, eggs, salt, milk and corn.
Heat a frypan to high heat and add the oil. Using a spoon shape the corn mix into a patty and apply to the heat. Cook on each side for 2 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove and set aside to a plate until all fritters are cooked.
In a separate bowl combine Spanish onion, tomato, cucumber, coriander leaves, avocado and chilli.
Just before serving squeeze over some lemon juice and mix through.
To serve stack three fritters on top of each other, sandwiching the avocado salsa in between and finish with a sprinkling of pepitas. Alternatively you can serve them individually and top a spoonful of the salsa on each.
Got any ideas for the next episode of THI dude food? What do the men in your life like to devour?
