Vegan Crispy Chipotle Fritters
Let’s be honest, these tasty fritters are not health food. They are for parties or outdoor gatherings or football Sundays. So eat them in moderation. But eat them! I use this awesome recipe below from http://alimentageuse.com
- 1 cup filtered water
- 1 cup split red lentils, picked through for stones and rinsed
- ½ medium onion, chopped (about ⅓ cup chopped onion)
- 8-10 sprigs chives, finely chopped (about 3 tbsp chopped chives)
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp pepper
- Oil for frying
- ¼ cup vegan mayo
- ¼ tsp chipotle powder
Soak red lentils in water for an hour.
Process red lentils, onions, chives, salt and pepper into a food processor until smooth. Don’t worry if it seems a little bit watery.
Preheat oil to 375F.
Use a spoon to drop batter balls into the oil.
Fry unti golden brown. (don’t fry too many at the same time!)
Remove and let drain on paper towel.
Mix mayo and chipotle together to make sauce.
Serve and enjoy!
