One of my goals for this year is to eat less meat and many more veggies. I do struggle with this, because I do love meat, but I am determined! Often to the frustration of the mega-meat eaters in this household!
Consequently it’s quite rare that we actually have Meatless Monday. It’s usually Meatless-any-night-but-Monday. Harder to predict that way [insert evil cackle].
This dish was inspired by JJ, my friend and fellow food blogger [over at 84th & 3rd]. JJ frequently posts beautiful photos of corn fritters, and every time she does I tell her I will be making them. So finally I am!
What I love about this dish is its flexibility. I’ve added leek [because they were languishing in the veggie crisper], but you could easily add mushrooms, capsicums, red onion or zucchini [which I had intended to add until I realised there were none in the fridge!] instead. I’m fairly sure hubby wishes I’d added some bacon as he isn’t a huge fan of meatless meals. But he is getting used to them. Or he will do…
I’ll be having a leftover fritter or two for breakfast tomorrow with an egg. And maybe a bit of bacon. YUM!
I’m always seeking meatless meal inspiration – please, please share your favourites.
