This is definitely an ideal Superbowl snack. What a great way to eat beans and peas. This recipe I found in a Canadian magazine this summer while hiking around Cape Breton. The original features a creamy slaw made of mayo, avocados and red cabbage. It seemed a natural substitute (and much easier) to simply use the mayonnaise that was gifted to me by Chosen Foods this winter. What an incredible sauce. My mother always said that hunger is the best sauce–well, she might need to try this.
Romano Bean Fritters
Adapted from Chatelaine Magazine
1/4 cup mayonnaise—I used Chosen Foods Harissa flavored Mayo
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup water
3 tbsp Chosen Foods avocado oil
1/2 cup frozen green peas, thawed
1 cup French beans, drained and rinsed and chopped into one-inch pieces
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp hot-red-chili-flakes
Put mayonnaise into a little cup. Done—whoo that was easy!
Stir all-purpose flour with baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Whisk in water, 1 tbsp oil and egg. Stir in green peas, romano beans, green onions, 1 tbsp fresh thyme and hot-red-chili flakes.
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium. Scoop 4 2-tbsp fritters into pan. Cook until fritters are golden brown and cooked through, about 2 min per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Repeat with another tbsp of oil and remaining batter. Serve warm, dip in mayo. YummMM!
Thanks so much for the gift, Chosen Foods!
