Prep time: 30 minutesCooking time: 30 minutesTotal time: 1 hour

Description

Use any vegetables in these fritters - City Market's Food Education Coordinator, Caroline Homan, used a combination of grated zucchini, summer squash, turnips and carrots.  Chickpeas, bell peppers or black beans would also work!

Ingredients

1/2 cup
milk
1/2 cup
all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons
salt
1/2 teaspoon
baking powder
3 cups
summer vegetables
2  
eggs
1  
onion
1 teaspoon
herbs
   
olive oil

Instructions

Grate of finely chop the vegetables and place in a medium mixing bowl.  Add the eggs and beat until fluffy.  Beat in the milk, flour, salt and baking powder.  Add the grated onion and chopped herbs or curry powder.
Heat enough oil in a large, heavy skillet to coat the pan.  When hot, drop rounded tablespoons of batter into the pan and spread to make 2 1/2-3-inch rounds.  Fry until golden on one side (3-5 min), then flip and cook 3-4 minutes longer (the next batches will go faster).  Serve immediately.
Make it a meal with a side of rice and salad.  Makes about 16 fritters.
