Method
 

For The Fritters

  • Place flour, ground flaxseed, seasoning & water in a mixing bowl. Whisk together until there are no lumps then leave to sit. (This will give time for the batter to start thickening)
  • Combine corn kernels, chickpeas, jalapenos, garlic & chives together. Add to the batter & mix well.
  • To cook the fritters, heat oil in a frying pan. Use a 1/3 cup to scoop batter into hot pan. Use a spatula to flatten the batter into disc shapes. Leave to fry for 3-4 minutes. Flip & cook on the other side for 3-4 minutes.

For The Tomato Salsa

  • Mix everything together & serve with fritters.

For The Wilted Baby Spinach

  • Heat oil in a pan, add garlic & cook for a few minutes.
  • Add baby spinach & stir until the spinach starts to wilt. Add lemon juice & continue stirring until the spinach is bright green & wilted.
  • Season with salt & pepper.
Chefs Tips
Another great idea is to make smaller fritters which can be served as finger snacks at afternoon tea or on roaming platters at an informal gathering. One of my favourite variations are smoked salmon, dill and cream cheese fritters, I encourage you to put your own spin on this.
