This recipe is a fun and tasty twist on traditional corn fritters. It’s packed full of colourful vegetables and looks impressive when served with fresh avocado salsa.

Makes: 8 fritters




  • Fritters
  • 2 cobs corn
  • ½ red onion, finely diced
  • ½ red capsicum, finely diced
  • ¼ cup fresh coriander, chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 110g almond meal
  • 30g millet flour
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp chilli powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • Salsa
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • ½ red capsicum, finely diced
    ½ red onion, finely diced
    ¼ cup fresh coriander, chopped
  • Juice 1 lime
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  1. Cut the corn kernels from the cob and put in a bowl along with all of the other fritter ingredients, except for the olive oil. Gently mix together until well combined.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and spoon some of the mixture into the pan, creating 3 fritters. Cook for 3 to 4 mins on each side until golden brown and firm to touch.
  3. Continue this process until you have used up all of the mixture.
  4. To make the salsa, simply combine all of the salsa ingredients in a bowl. Serve a stack of 2-3 fritters topped with the avocado salsa. Enjoy!
