Delicious gluten and dairy free fritters packed with vegetables. Perfect for dinner at home or to add to lunch boxes too!
It’s been a little while since I posted a recipe here but I’m getting back into a more regular schedule now and am very excited to share lots of gluten and dairy free recipes with you guys! Up first today are these really easy Vegetable Fritters!
I’ve been making fritters for the kids for a few years now. They’re a great way to whip up a quick lunch or tea for the kids using just a few simple ingredients that you probably always have to hand at home. Since we’ve switched Finn to a gluten and casein free diet I’ve been experimenting with different versions for him using gluten free flour and dairy free milk.
I’ve used this Free From Fairy Plain Flour in my recipe. A lot of other gluten free flours that I have experimented with have been quite “grainy”. Vicki’s flour is wholegrain and also rice free and so far has been the best gluten free flour that I’ve found on the market. I highly recommend it!
For the dairy free milk in this recipe I used Oatly. I use coconut milk a lot for Finn but sometimes it can be a little sweet in savoury dish but the Oatly works perfect in these fritters.
The fritters are slightly red in colour as I used some smoked paprika to flavour them. You can leave this out and instead use some dried mixed herbs or oregano instead.
If you try this recipe I would absolutely love to hear your feedback or even see pictures of your own creations! And to stay up-to-date on all my recipes you can follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
- 100g / 0.75 cup gluten free plain flour (or gluten free all purpose flour)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 medium egg
- 100ml / 0.4 cup dairy free milk
- 200g / 7oz chopped frozen mixed veggies
- 2 spring onions, chopped
- ½ tsp smoked paprika
- salt and pepper to taste
- Sieve the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Add the milk and eggs and mix well.
- Add the frozen veggies to a bowl or jug, cover with boiling water and microwave on high for 1-2 minutes until fully defrosted. Drain well.
- Stir in the drained mixed veggies, spring onion and paprika and mix until well combined.
- Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Heat a little oil in a frying pan and add in a heaped tablespoon of the fritter batter. Press down gently with a spatula and repeat until the frying pan is full. I was able to cook 4 fritters at a time in my frying pan but it will depend on the size of yours. I made a total of 8 fritters from the batter.
- Fry the fritters on a medium heat for approximately 4 minutes on either side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
