So, my almost 3 year old son actually willingly ate a vegetable for dinner! So, I had to report to everyone how it was possible. Usually, I get him his veggies through veggie/fruit juice, fruits, and purees snuck into various dishes. However, with this recipe, he knew what he was eating, and he ate his vegetables willingly! Yay!
This recipe is from Annabel Karmel. I love her books for kid-friendly recipes-all the way from purees to toddler munchies. This corn fritter recipe was something that my foodie husband actually loved as well as my non-vegetable eating toddler and my one year old who eats absolutely everything.
Mini Corn Fritters
*1/4 C. all-purpose flour
*1/2 teaspoon baking powder
*1/4 teaspoon salt
*1 large egg
*1 C. drained canned corn
*1 large or 2 small scallions, thinly sliced
*2 TBSP canola oil, for frying
*Whiz together all ingredients except the oil in a food processor for 1 minute to make a batter.
*Heat a little of the oil in a large frying pan and drop in tablespoons of the batter. Cook for 1 to 1 and 1/2 minutes in two batches of 5 until golden on the undersides, then carefully turn and cook for another minute. You can use the back of a spoon to help push the fritter onto a spatula to make turning easier. Drain briefly on paper towels before serving.
