Fritters

I decided I should post something without sugar (I swear my Candida Kid does not eat much sugar!). I feel like I've posted a lot of sweet recipes lately; in all honestly, I like baking much more than cooking. I also feel quite proud when a dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, corn-free concoction comes out tasting so good, but in reality, there's meals that come out tasting good too. A simple and tasty lunch or dinner we make for Ry is fritters. You can really use any combination of meat or veggies and seasonings. I use our pancake recipe, which I posted yesterday, and then chop up some veggies really fine and mix it with ground venison. We're not doing much more than salt right now, but we've done cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, etc. Get CREATIVE! Whatever you decide to mix, once done, shape into patties and cook in coconut or olive oil over medium heat, a few minutes on each side, until they are brown and crispy, just not too brown or too crispy. Sometimes, we dip it different things, too. It always makes food more exciting for Ry when there's dip.

Filling ideas: zucchini, onion, beet green, broccoli, cauliflower, black beans, ground venison, minced garlic

Seasoning ideas: garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, curry powder, cumin

Dip ideas: refried black beans, hummus, applesauce, honey, mashed avocado/guacamole

Enjoy!

Note: In my pancake recipe, I wrote sorghum or teff flour, but if you can't eat either of these, I'm sure whatever flours you can tolerate would work. There's so many flours out there and I haven't experimented with all of them, but this works fine for us with either sorghum or teff. We used to use brown rice, but aren't giving Ry rice right now. I know sometimes it can get discouraging, but if you need a different flour, just try it, these seem pretty adaptable!
