Tuesday night Vego – Cabbage and Corn Fritters with Caper Mayonnaise and a tomato salad

17 Jul

Getting back on top of things and picking heaps of veggies, so time for another Tuesday Night Vego Challenge recipe. I had 1/2 of a smallish wombok in the fridge, so I wanted to use it somehow.

The recipe for the cabbage and corn fritters came from here.

I used Linda’s caper mayonnaise recipe from here.

Then I served the fritters with a tomato salad of diced fresh tomatoes, a bit of finely sliced spring onion and the last of my basil, miraculously still clinging onto the bedraggled plant. I dressed with balsamic vinegar, brown sugar and olive oil.

The fritters were simple but completely delicious, and I’m not sure I’ll buy mayonnaise ever again.

    Oh great, this is perfect, thank you! I have quite a bit of cabbage to get thru and this will do nicely. I think I will make it with the corn off the cob though. I am a huge fan of home made mayonnaise ( even better if I had my own cackleberries) and so will try this recipe too.

      I really should have saved the wombok for the kimchi but I have quite a bit of it growing and wanted to use the freshest stuff – to ferment – what was I thinking?

      I just hope I can save some more wombok from the slugs. I swear those things are just slug magnets. Nothing else (really) has been touched by the slugs this year because they can’t bear to leave the wombok- good in a way (I guess).

    I make corn fritters (usually using frozen sweet corn kernals) regularly, sometimes for breakfast, sometimes for lunch and sometimes for dinner – I love that they are great anytime of the day. I too love making mayonaise although I was a little disturbed to realised just how much oil it contains….

      I think that the cabbage really makes these ones. They remind me a lot of okonomiyaki.

    Those look great šŸ™‚ And that small-quantity mayonnaise recipe looks great for boiled egg sandwiches, although I do enjoy making mayo by hand. Must be something about mixing things.
    Actually, I was thinking last week that J might be of the right age to enjoy mixing mayonnaise by hand, and maybe I could teach her. Depends how much you feel like having mayonnaise that gloops, I guess šŸ˜› But I agree, it’s not worth buying!
