Great for a weekend breakfast or late brunch, these corn fritters have a crunchy crust and fluffy inside, are easy to make and delicious to eat.

Canned corn kernels (creamed or not!) are nutrient-rich, containing a variety of B-group vitamins, vitamin A and vitamin C. A trio of nutrients which support a healthy immune system and promote sustained energy production to fight fatigue. These easy fritters are full of dietary fibre, thanks to plenty of vegetables and wholemeal flour, helping to keep us regular and support good gut health, a critical component of the immune system.

Ingredients 

  • 1½ cups corn kernels, drained & rinsed
  • 1 cup creamed corn
  • 1 red capsicum, diced
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • 2 eggs

How to make

1. Place the corn kernels, creamed corn, capsicum, red onion and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Mix to combine. Add flour and season with salt and pepper. Mix until just combined and then set aside.

2. To prepare the avocado salsa, place the avocado, tomato, spring onion, coriander and lemon juice in a small bowl. Mix to combine and set aside.

3. Heat the olive oil in a large frypan over medium-high heat and add four separate heaped tablespoons of mixture to the pan. Cook for two minutes each side. Repeat this process twice with the remaining mixture, making 12 fritters in total.

4. To serve, place three fritters on each plate and top with a generous amount of avocado salsa.

 

Notes

Want to make it gluten-free? Simply swap the wholemeal self-raising flour to gluten-free self-raising flour.

Leftover corn fritters can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days. Avocado salsa is best consumed immediately.
