Meatless meals 


Hello Dear Reader,

This has got to be one of my most favourite meals and it’s utterly delicious. Saag aloo and sweet corn fritters. I cheat a bit and make this a bit differently but here’s my recipes.

Sweet corn fritters.

1 tin sweet corn

1 small onion, finely diced,

75g of plain flour, mine was gluten free.

3 beaten eggs.

Season well with salt and pepper.

1 small bunch of fresh coriander roughly chopped. Combine all ingredients to a chunky batter.

Heat a pan with 5mm of vegetable oil and use a large spoon to drop a couple of spoonfuls to form a large fritter. Do not turn over until one side is completely cooked. 

Saag Aloo – this is a fragrant and very tasty side dish that we eat on its own.

500g of floury potatoes cut into cubes.

1 medium onion finely chopped 

3 cloves of garlic, gained diced.

Lazy ginger and chilli – I got mine in tubes from Aldi. I used a heaped tablespoon of each.

Tablespoon of whole grain mustard.

1 bag of baby leaf spinach.

Water to cook. 

You will need to start by gently frying the onion, keep the heat low and add the ginger, chilli and garlic. Add the chopped potatoes and cook really gently with just enough water to cook them. After ten minutes, they should be softened but not over cooked. Stir in the mustard. Wash the spinach and pat dry, and stir through so the spinach wilts.

We were famished this evening so I added some brown rice too. The whole supper was ready in under thirty minutes and it’s one of our cheapest meals.

What’s your favourite meatless meal?

Until tomorrow,

Love Froogs xxxx
