You want something with protein and vitamins, and all that good stuff, but you also want something fried and delicious: What do you do? You make fritters using healthy ingredients! These fritters are packed with protein. They contain beans, nuts, seeds, and nutritional yeast, which are all excellent plant-based sources or protein. Each fritter contains about 6 grams. They’re also rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fiber, and healthy fats.
But that’s enough about the health stuff, let’s talk about the taste… These fritters taste like something that should be really bad for you, and I mean that in the best way possible. The texture reminded me somewhat of the potato cakes I made awhile back. The outside was crispy and crunchy but the inside was surprisingly light and airy. While I really enjoyed them with just the sauce, I think they would be really good as a burger or in a pita – the sauce, too.
This recipe makes about one dozen fritters, which is quite a lot, so if you have left overs you can keep them in the fridge for a few days or you can freeze. I stored my leftovers in the fridge overnight and reheated them in the oven the next day, and they were just as good, if not better, than the first time.
