Kale & sweetcorn fritters

And... after a shockingly long leave of absence due to a) the fact we've got an allotment and b) that work has been utterly, utterly crazed, I'm back blogging my recipes again. This time it's fritters.

So, critical question - can you get a bit of fluffy loveliness with a  vegan batter? Of course you can! Hurl bicarb of soda and baking powder together and the whole think lifts wonderfully.


1 cup plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sea salt
1 cup of soya milk
2 cups curly kale
1 tin sweetcorn
Veg oil for frying


Super easy this one. Steam the kale and set it to one side. You might want to open and drain the sweetcorn too. Sift the flour into a bowl with the bicarb, the baking powder and the sea salt. With a fork, mix in the soya milk until you've got a smooth batter. Now turn in the kale and the sweetcorn and mix well.

Heat some vegetable oil in a large non-stick frying pan or wok and then add a spoonful of the fritter mixture at a time. Allow to fry for around 1.5 - 2 minutes until golden brown and then turn over and do the other side.

Serve as a starter with soy sauce for dipping - or in our case with some rice and peas.
