Spinach & Corn Fritter-Burgers with Golden Onion Dip

April 30, 2015

I - JUST...

CAN'T EVEN...

begin to explain how delicious these are. 

Super-duper healthy too, no need for a bun. Unless of course you want one - this is a fantastic burger.

You don't need much oil

In fact - you don't need any!

Just a little butter. 

That's why these aren't technically "fritters" because they're not fried but pretty much has the same ingredients as one.

So they're a fritter-burger! 

Oh my and can we PLEASE talk about this dip.

Probably one of the EASIEST dips I've ever made. 

It was a matter of having this one packet of seasoning that I had a box of - I was going to use it for something but never did so there it sat.

GOLDEN ONION DIP (by Lipton)

It absolutely fantastic. 

I'M OBSESSED.

This is a vegetarian dish too! Could it get any better?

Acutally yes it can.

If you sub in vegan-cheese you have yourself a Vegan Fritter.

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 c corn (fresh or canned - if using canned reserve 1/4 c of the corn juice)

  • 1 1/2 c whole wheat flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp pepper

  • 2 small shallots minced

  • 1 big handful of spinach chopped

  • 4 green onions chopped

  • 8 garlic cloves roughly chopped

  • 1 c soymilk (plus 1/4 - 1/2 c)

  • 1/2 c sharp cheddar cheese cubed

  • 2 Tbs butter

  • 1 1/2 c non-fat plain greek yogurt

  • 1 packet of the golden onion mix

 

Makes about 10 fritter-burgers

 

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl combine the corn, flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, shallots, spinach, green onion and garlic.

  2. Pour in 1 c of the soymilk and stir - if too thick add a little more soymilk. (you don't want this to be too runny - you want it thick enough to form a patty and not fall apart. (I used 1 1/4 c)

  3. After all mixed fold in the cheese. 

  4. In a large skillet or over a griddle, heat to medium high, add in some butter and drop a scoop full of the mix on. (1/4 c worked well but evetually I just used my hands because it was so sticky)

  5. Shape the dollops of batter making them more round and thinned out. 

  6. Cook until super crispy and browned - takes a bit of time, about 10-15 minutes per side.

  7. While they cook mix your dip.

  8. Combine the yogurt - golden onion dip and 3 Tbs of the corn juice and set aside (the longer it sits the better)

  9. When fritter-burgers are done serve with dip immediately and ENJOY!!!
