Method

To make the crema:

Whisk all the ingredients together, then cover and refrigerate until flavours develop and ready to serve.

To make the fritters:
  • 1In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, broccoli powder, cumin, and cheese. Then add the corn, red bell pepper, spring onion, cilantro, and jalapenos and mix to combine.
  • 2Pour over the brine (water or milk) and mix together with a spatula until thick and thoroughly combined.
  • 3If the batter is too dry or crumbly, add some
    more liquid.
  • 4Coat the bottom of a skillet with oil, and bring to medium high heat. Once hot, begin molding the fritters into patties in your hand, about 1 full tablespoon each, and placing into the pan.
  • 5Working in small batches, cook the fritters until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Make sure not to overcrowd the pan.
  • 6Transfer to a platter lined with absorbent paper towel.
  • 7Serve the fritters hot** with the crema, some lime wedges, and sweet cherry tomatoes.
Notes:

* You may use all purpose flour or a gluten-free flour blend.
* You may use any sharp dry cheese you like, or use nutritional yeast for dairy-free/vegan option, or omit altogether.
* You may use organic fresh, frozen or canned corn packed in water. Be sure to drain or thaw out first before use.
* The brine gives a nice tangy and spicy flavour from the vinegar. You may sub with water or milk of your choice if you prefer less heat.
* You may use strained Greek yogurt, or coconut yogurt for dairy-free/vegan option.

** It’s best to consume the fritters right away as they’re nice and crispy when hot. But they still taste great when kept in an airtight container in the fridge for a couple of days.
