Tessa’s Vegetable Fritters

Our team LOVES these. We’ve had them with the veggies more coarsely chopped and finely chopped in the food processor.  Yummy! And a great way to use up some veggies lingering in your fridge. And the best part, they are always a bit different depending on the veggies you use.


1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup flour

3 t salt

1/2 t baking powder

3 cups finely chopped or grated veggies (carrots, greens, peppers, squashes—whatever combo you want)

2 eggs

1 small grated onion

1 t fresh herbs or curry powder

Oil or lard for frying


Mix chopped veggies and eggs.  Beat ‘til fluffy.  Beat in milk, flour, salt & baking powder. Add grated onion and herbs.

Heat pan with enough oil to coat.  When hot drop rounded spoonfuls of batter and spread to make 2.5-3 inch rounds.

Fry until golden on one side (3-5 minutes).  Flip and cook 3-4 minutes longer.  The next batches will go faster.    Makes 16.
