Green Grinch Fritters
Green Grinch Fritters
During the Holiday season, I like to make nutritious snacks since everyone is watching their calories!
These fritters have lots of veggies in them and they taste great!
Even my kids eat them without complaining about the amount of veggies in them
Who says you can't have fun
2 cups water
1 1/2tsp salt
1 lg. egg
1/4 tsp each garlic powder, black pepper and cayenne pepper
1  1/2tsp baking powder
2 cup flour
2 cup Athletes Mix, frozen Cookin' Greens (Kale or Designers Mix can be used)
vegetable oil
In a large bowl whisk together water, salt and egg.  Tip in flour, spices and baking powder.  Stir with a wooden spoon.  Just before everything is blended add the frozen greens, breaking any large clumps.  Continue blending until  thoroughly combined.  Allow to sit for 5-10min. while preparing pan.
Meanwhile, place a deep pot on the stove and preheat 1" of vegetable oil on med. high.  Oil temperature should be between 350-365 F. If you do not have a thermometer, test the oil by dropping a tiny amount of dough into the oil.  *If bubbles begin to appear around the dough and it begins to float your oil is ready.*
Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls into the oil, do not over crowd.  Shape into fairly flat and round discs for proper browning and even cooking on the inside.  Brown to a golden crisp colour on both sides turning only once.  Continue until all dough is used.
Drain on paper towels.  Arrange on a platter with a dip if desired.
Makes approx. 30, 3" fritters       
These hot or at room temperature. These can be wrapped in wax paper and stored in the freezer, up to a month.
Enjoy with love!
