Vegan Corn Fritters

My daughter and I are the only ones in our home who love corn. Although I don’t eat it often, when I do, I buy only the non-GMO, organic frozen corn. I put this recipe together for supper tonight. It was very easy to prepare, I was so pleased with the results! These corn fritters were so delicious that to my surprise, my husband actually tried a couple and really enjoyed them. I love the fact that they were baked, and therefore not as greasy as traditional corn fritters.

These Vegan Corn Fritters are similar to my Broccoli Fritter Recipe and my Split Peas Fritters, so easy to make yet packed with flavors. If you are looking for a sweet fritter recipe then you ought to try my Jamaican Banana Fritters recipe as well.

I baked the Vegan Corn Fritters but you can lightly fry them in a skillet on medium-high, if you prefer, for about 3 minutes on one side then flip fritters and cook for 3 minutes on the other side, until golden brown. I have used fresh, frozen and canned corn for this recipe. If using frozen corn, thaw before using. If you are using canned corn, remember to drain the liquid.

    I tried this recipe as written, but fried the first batch. However, it was just too much corn kernels for my liking (I don’t eat corn much). So the next day I tried again with some variations. I pureed 3/4 of the corn with enough water for it to blend which left a remaining 1/4 of whole kernels for the fritters. I also doubled the seasonings, added chopped cilantro, and baked the second batch as mentioned in the recipe. I loved the second attempt!! I served them with a sauce using plain Greek yogurt (I’m pescatarian not vegan) seasoned with taco seasoning. The only thing I’ll change next time is reduce the cooking time from 30 minutes by just a few minutes. Thanks again, Michelle!

      Once I mixed in the pureed corn and other ingredients, I added enough water to the batter to get the correct consistency as suggested in the recipe (thick pancake batter).
